Liked: Very clean hostel and a good location. The beds were nice! Big windows in the dorms. The underground is very close, so a nice hostel to stay and discover Berlin.

Liked: Literally the BEST hostel I've ever stayed in. Clean, well-organized, excellent facilities, great reception staff. I didn't love Berlin but this hostel made the trip a pleasant experience. I wish wombats was in Paris and Barcelona, where I tend to visit more often.

Disliked: The attached restaurant. Our waitress literally ignored us for ages, both when we were trying to order and trying to get our cheque so we could leave. The food was mediocre and lukewarm when it came out. A total waste of money.

Liked: Really good location, right near a metro stop and a nice half hour walk to Brandenberg Gate. Great atmosphere, the bar is a great place to meet people.

Disliked: Had a bit of an issue with the room, as we had booked a 4 bed dorm, and for the most part of our stay there were only 4 of us in there, but then two more people came in to our room. It was fixed really quickly, and they gave us a stack of free drink cards for the bar, so it wasn't that big of a deal.

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.
