“close to the train station and a good atmosphere for college students”
Reviewed 17 July 2011

Me & my husband booked for 2 nights and opted to stay for another night because we loved Munich so much. Wombats had all the little extra conveniences - internet, wi-fi, a bar, 24 hr reception, breakfast etc. all at small additional costs though, you do get one complementary drink at the bar, but breakfast and use of computers are not included in price of your stay. we didn't use a kitchen or laundry room while we were there so I'm not sure if they had one, but its a big hostel so maybe it was on one of the lower floors?as far as the atmosphere, its a place ideal for students, and fun couples, but probably not ideal for families with small children as the place does have a lot of partying students, not to stay that its too noisy or anything, but its not the quietest place either. there's just a lot of hustle and bustle. After returning from Austria to catch our return flight home, we booked another night at Wombats because it as close to the train station, the staff were friendly, and the place feels very safe :)

Room Tip: book early! rooms fill quickly. we got lucky the staff could move us to another room for 1+ night. d...

I loved Wombats because of the cheap drinks and great company. If you're looking for a quieter hostel, this is probably not is, as there is a lot of activity. But you get free Wi-Fi and linens, a free welcome drink (or two, if your home country has a holiday) and the chance to make great new friends to travel with, or at least get a drink with. The 24/7 reception was a big help in planning our activities and answering our questions, and they even had plug adaptors to borrow. And you can't beat the location: two blocks from Karlsplatz and across the street from the main train station.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper, request an inside room. The rooms on the street will likely be too no...

Wombat's locates very close to the train station. There's a bar on the ground floor and you can meet people from all around. It you are in time constraint or really has sth to do on the next day, you'd better get a room on higher floor and with windows towards to the opposite side of the street. Generally I had good sleeps. The price for a 6-beds mixed dorm is 25 euro not including breakfast. You have to pay extra 3,7 Euro for breakfast per day if you like. unfortunately they don' t have any kitchens opened to travellers. Anyway I like the excellent location. It is very convenient to reach tourist attractions and there're lots of restaurants nearby.

Our 6 bed female dorm only had 2 powerpoints which was not enough. The rooms often face the street which is very noisy.
The breakfast is good (It costs extra) and the rooms are very clean.

I stayed here for 2 nights in April 2010. I was very pleased with this hostel. It was more like staying in an IKEA store! My friend and I stayed in a female dorm with 4 or so other women, and it was very clean and comfortable. This was my first time staying in a "dorm" room with other people at a hostel, and I have to say, it was an amazing experience! The room had 4 bunk beds, and lockers for your things. Your room card (key) was also the key to the lockers so you only had to keep up with one item which was brilliant! The bar was a very lively spot to talk with and meet other travellers. Loved the free drink ticket you received upon check in. We could walk into town and to food easily from our location. Will definitely be visiting other Wombats in the future! Highly recommend.

The Wombats chain is famous for its youth-focused bar and threadbare but sufficient rooms. Munich's Wombats is very much of the same ilk. You can't go wrong! Be sure to bring your own towel and be prepared for the party focus of the Wombat clientele. You get a free drink voucher when you check in so you can join in the fun too! A true backpacker's hostel.

i just spent 2 nights in a 6 bed mixed dorm and probably got half the sleep i should have thanks to all the late night door slamming puking(both nights) and finally, sex. while the place is clean and has some good features the en suite bathrooms are probably a bad idea unless you like a symphony of retching at 4 am, both nights in my case. don't stay here if you have something to do the next day.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
'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. ... more   less
