Liked: people who work at the reception were pretty friendly, especially one guy was really helpful and kind. :) the area is really good to get to the city centre and it was good to meet people as well. :)

Disliked: breakfast was quite bad... : ( I just expected it as that one in Wombat's Munich, but it was not really value for money. except it, other things were great ^^

Liked: Dorm rooms were actually pretty large, and had ensuite bathrooms, which is a little annoying if there's a lot of you getting up at the same time, but we didn't have that problem. The bar was really friendly with lots of drink specials, it was a great place to meet people. The staff were helpful, even if their advice wasn't always 100% accurate. The location was pretty good, and it's easy to get around from there.

Disliked: It's slightly more expensive than I'd like to pay, and the price goes up on the weekends. The breakfast (which costs extra) probably isn't worth the money. Apart from that, a great hostel!

Liked: Wombats is a great place to stay. Having stayed in the Munich property before, I knew that the Berlin hostel would be good and now I am glad I chose to stay here. The rooms are clean, showers are hot and the bar is awesome. The staff on the front desk were friendly and very helpful with directions and suggestions for bars and clubs, with service you would expect from a 5 star hotel concierge. Do yourself a favour, stay in this hostel. You will not be disappointed!

Disliked: There is nothing to dislike about this property

Liked: I loved the location! It was such a great base for our stay in such an amazing city. All the staff were so nice and helpful - gave great advice on night life / things to visit during the day. I'd recommend this to anyone and everyone who wants to have fun. It's also a really good place to chill out. The rooms were also fantastic - each has their own en-suite. Moreover, the beds were really comfortable. The roof top bar was pretty and an enjoyable venue to get drinking before going out.

Disliked: There wasn't anything I particularly disliked at all - however, it was quite expensive for a hostel. In saying this, it was well worth the money and I didn't regret my decision to stay there in the slightest.

Liked: we were coming from amsterdam so the increase in space and comfort was an obvious plus - the staff are well informed and friendly, the bar convenient and cheap, and the communal kitchen well stocked. the lockers and keycard system are really effective and we had no problem with noise.

Disliked: large groups of touring travellers (topdeck, contiki) seem to pass through this hostel - we stayed over the weekend and found them to be generally ...unpleasant. however this is not really any fault of the hostel itself :) great place

Liked: The staff was wonderful, the rooms were very nice and the overall experience made my stay in Berlin really great.

Disliked: The only real thing I disliked was the experience I had with the people I shared the room with. They were very disruptive and rude during the morning hours and my friend and I had to switch rooms the second night we were there.

Liked: Hostel was incredibly clean; staff were very helpful, from giving directions to the pharmacy to making suggestions for bars and dinner; location could not have been better (literally just steps from the station and surrounded by restaurants, cafes, bars, and shops); hostel bar was a riot and a great way to meet people; breakfast was fresh and good value; lots of activities/tours/events set up for travelling students. Could not recommend it more!

Disliked: Absolutely nothing-we were very impressed!
