Liked: Excellent location, good guest kitchen, a bar in the hostel, good reception staff, nice rooms, good resources and suggestions, nice beds and lockers, good security, free drink coupons upon checkin.

Disliked: Sterile atmosphere, guests seem to be in groups that keep to themselves, it's a huge hostel and has a hotel-like feel, the internet is TERRIBLE (slow speed and ridiculous login system), breakfast is typical and costs €3.50 extra, the bar is relatively expensive and serves terrible beer.

Liked: Definitely super good place to stay. You can find everything there, if you wanna go to party you can start in the nice and cheap bar in the hostel, after that you open the doors and there is meeting point for the pubcrawl. If not, you can sleep easily, no sound is coming up to the rooms. Location is fantastic, you safe a money for the public transport...Breakfast is really good, all you can eat... and there are lot of choices... The staff helps you if you ask to any question, especially thanks to Zsoka, she made our stay unforgettable! Cleanliness on the really high level. Dont hesitate, just book it here!

Disliked: Jan left no negative feedback.

Liked: It's a good hostel, everything quite good! but one thing that I think it' would be great that it would has a restaurant or something where to eat inside the hostel, not just for breakfast but anyway one of the best hostel that i've stayed. I'll recommend to everybody 100%.

Disliked: too much noise during the night.

Liked: The hostel was exceptionally clean. The breakfast each morning was incredible for hostel standards, offering an all you can eat buffet with an assortment of food and drinks for really cheap! The bar is very large and offers good cheap drinks. The self service kitchen is unbelievable, large enough to accommodate five people cooking at a time.

Disliked: The hostel is so amazing it is like a hotel, which can also take away from the hostel experience. Definitely lacks a social atmosphere and you will most likely not have a memorable stay at Wombats, but if you're concerned about cleanliness and good facilities for a great value, book this hostel.

Liked: Good location, decent price, good choice of rooms.

Disliked: Described itself as the 'cleanest hostel worldwide' but this is definitely not true! It's not dirty but could use more frequent cleaning, and the shower leaks water all over the bathroom floor.

Liked: Good rooms, good breakfast

Disliked: There was no real atmosphere; despite being enormous there was not often people around to talk to and there were a lot of contiki groups which would disappear straight away. The staff were not very personable and sit behind the desks on their computers all the time, but that may be because the place is so big and they are so busy. I just think it's too big

Liked: Great location near the main metro interchange and Gdusvo (sic) Corridor which is a strip of bars and restaurants. great facilities - it looks brand new and is clean throughout. Beds comfy and each bed has a light and plug. Great atmosphere in the bar at night. We had an important parcel sent before our arrival and they kept it safe for us, so very trustworthy. They also kept in touch over email about it. Very impressed!

Disliked: Nothing. All good as you expect from Wombats!

Liked: Location

Disliked: The incapacity of being flexible when it comes to currency. You arrive full of bags and they don't let you do check-in if you don't have florints. A hostel should be flexible, I had to propose the idea of them keeping my euros and then later I would pay in florints. The website should be more clear, writing that only florints are accepted. They give the rate in euros... Use your head...

Liked: The kitchen has a good space.

Disliked: There were only two glasses at the kitchen... And even if the hostelbookers says the amount you must pay at the check in in euro, they only accept in local currency. A little bit stressful when you arrive late at night.
