Of all the hostel-hotels popping up in Munich this pert little number does the best job in combining style with location. Past the glassed-in courtyard you'll find a friendly expat staff, pleasant if modular furnishings and private showers and toilets in every room.' (Lonely Planet)

Welcome to our comfortable baby in Munich!
We're just a stone's throw from the main train station which also serves as the major public transportation hub.
It’s not much further to the old town (5 minute stroll or 2 stone throws) and we're within easy walking distance of the Oktoberfest grounds (if you still CAN walk…better don’t throw stones).

We have amply dimensioned dormitories and most doubles come with their own terrace. We're especially proud of our air-conditioned, glass-roofed courtyard with real trees, real hammocks, semi-real (Beware of the wormholes!) beach chairs and beanbags.

If you travel by car, you can park it in our basement.

The five reasons why Wombats City Hostel became a destination by their own right are:

Outstanding cleanliness!
Unfortunately not something to take for granted but we do take this seriously: we've won Hostelworld's 'Cleanest Hostel Worldwide' award. Twice.

Excellent amenities!
We're centrally located and close to the trains and public transport.
There's maximum security with smartcard access for the front door, the floors, the rooms and your locker. All our rooms come with comfy wooden beds, private shower, toilet facilities and lockers for your belongings.
You'll get a set of bed linen, a small welcome drink, Wi-Fi (only on the ground floor; we still fight the machine!) as well as our self-made city map with all essential information about the going-ons in town.
All that for FREE! …aaaaawesome.
In addition we offer an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet, internet terminals, laundromats, 24/7 reception service and our lively womBAR serves cheap drinks and food.
There’s - of course - no age limit, no curfew, no lockout and no stupid rules whatsoever.
(If there are rules they are not stupid - at least in our world. But since we define what’s stupid and what’s not there’s no point in arguing….just kidding.)

We're the hostel by travellers for travellers!
We've travelled the world ourselves - so we know firsthand what you need and what you expect from us. We care for you and your feedback.

Great social atmosphere!
We make sure that you'll feel safe and welcome here. When you've been on the road all day long, seeing sights and all those freakin’ museums, it's cool to have a nice scene at the hostel where you can have some beers, talk and make friends. This will make your stay memorable! Many a traveller stayed quite a bit longer than primarily intended.

Wombats is no cheap dirt…
You may well find a cheaper place to crash in town, but none where you get more value for your money.

We were voted the Best Hostel Chain Worldwide at the 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 Hoscars. We promise to keep it up!

We look forward to welcoming you!

'The rates given on this site don't include breakfast. Our all-you-can-eat continental buffet brekkie costs € 3.90. You don't need to 'reserve' for breakfast, just come 'round to the reception in the morning if your belly claims its independence.

Please note that there's no check-in before 2pm (we need to clean the rooms first!). You may leave your stuff with the reception though and come back later.

There's sometimes a weird remark on your booking confirmation that your booking is split up into different rooms. Please ignore this, it's a software bug. There are human beings in charge at the hostel and they won't separate you from your friends or make you move to another room every day.

If you want to cancel or amend an existing booking please write us an e-mail until 24h before arrival: office@wombats-munich.de. (Please don’t call since we need a written proof.)

As this is a guaranteed booking (we keep your reservation no matter what arrival time you have selected) we have to charge the amount of your first night's stay on your credit card in case of a no-show.
Our CANCELLATION CONDITIONS are as follows:
small reservations UP TO 6 PERSONS:
until 24H BEFORE ARRIVAL (72H during OKTOBERFEST)
group bookings of MORE THAN 6 PERSONS:
until 7 DAYS BEFORE ARRIVAL

If you need a private dorm (e.g. if you travel with kids) please let us know beforehand via e-mail because given information about the age of group members during the booking process won't be available to us.

After your stay, you'll receive an email which gives you the chance to let us know what you liked and what you didn't like. We appreciate your feedback! Quite a few things you will find in our hostel were not our idea - your fellow travellers suggested them!

For a small fee you can park your car in our garage.
We’re SO sorry but there's no kitchen. It’s a shame, we know. Unlike our other hostels, Wombats Munich does not have a communal kitchen because there are some ridiculous laws which make it almost impossible...besides that, our landlord wouldn't let us to avoid fire hazard. Check.
Again we truly apologize but it’s like trying to scream down the Great Wall of China if you intend to complain about that - there just won't be a kitchen...ever. -sad-

Cheers for reading this and have a nice trip to Munich.
We look forward to welcoming you!

wombat's CITY HOSTEL is located in a small side street next to the Hauptbahnhof (main train station).

First of all: get off the train. Gnhn! Then, with the platforms in the back, quickly take the right exit out of the ugliest building in town onto Bayerstrasse. Cross the road, take a left and then turn into the first street on the right: Senefelder Strasse. Aim for the second house on the left side and look out for our banners saying...wombat's. (REALLY?!)

From the airport:
Take S-Bahn lines S1 or S8 to the main train station 'Hauptbahnhof' (the journey takes app. 45 minutes or 82.365 eye blinks), where you will find yourself in a maze of underground passages. Look for the exit to 'Bayerstrasse Ost'. After the escalator spits you onto the pavement, make a U-turn, cross Bayerstrasse, turn left and then first right into Senefelder Strasse. wombat's is the second house on the left. Still. -grin-

Located Near

We almost bump into the main train station (Hauptbahnhof) and are located close to the coach station (ZOB), the old town, Stachus, Kaufinger Strasse (Munich's biggest pedestrianised shopping road) and the Augustiner brewery (obviously the most important).
