I stayed with some girlfriends at this hostel for four days and three nights. I was so impressed by this hostel even before I arrived! It is located so close to the train station and the directions were extremely easy to follow. We arrived several hours before check-in and they allowed us to hang out, use the facilities and Wi-Fi, and offered tons of suggestions for local quick activities to pass the time before check-in. After a night train, their couches, hammocks, and comfy chairs were such a welcome luxury:) Our room was clean and spacious and the staff was enthusiastic and accommodating. Wombat's offers several guided tours to help orient travelers to the city and surrounding area. Although we didn't take advantage of these, we were able to talk to tons of other guests who had and all had rave reviews.
This is definitely an awesome place for young travelers or people who are looking to meet other travelers. At night, The downstairs lobby/ common areas transform into a pretty serious bar scene. We meandered through the crowd on one of the nights and met some interesting people and had a good time. We were a little older (late 20's) than most of the people we met (but not all of them!) and did find that our street-side room was quite noisy well into the night/early morning.
I would recommend this hostel to ANYONE. In my opinion, this place is the best as far as hostels go.
- 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
