“A great base when in Berlin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

I arrived early after a very long flight from New Zealand, the staff were very friendly and helpful. i put my stuff in to storage and went exploring this great city.......after a long day, I arrived back, the staff member saw me arrive and had my room card, and everything ready for me to collect, so I could get up to my room, The room was very clean and welcoming after such a long day, the only down side was no air con! The Bar on the 7th floor was AMAZING, more spectacular views and good beer.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper levels to get the views

the hostel has it's own pub above the roof (= no neighbours) but you can't have fun there. The hotels itself is sparely equipped, the rooms are clean but really small, breakfast ends to early, not really quiet

Very well run hostel. The apartment I stayed was great (though no aircon). Staff is very nice and location is superb. There was a bit of an iffy smell on the room but for 90 Euros-simply great, Highly recommended,

Good location, around 20 min walk from Brandeburg gate, rooms are really nice and spacious with good toilet and shower facilities for each room. Roof top terrace is brilliant, great views of Berlin and you can bring your own food and drink to the roof terrace until it closes at 10pm. There is a bar just off the roof top terrace which is really fun and cheap (was 2 euro a pint) with a large TV for watching the footy and a big pool table too. Loads of room to hang out and meet people. The staff are super friendly too.. The reception areas has places to chill and read a book if your into that.. Last but not least is the price per bed per night, it's 26 euro to stay here but it is worth every penny. This was my third time in Berlin and I prob payed half the price for the other two hostels but they still don't match up to the Wombat city hostel..

I know Berlin pretty well and chose this hostel because of it's great location. Right next to a U-Bahn, and close enough to walk to the Alexanderplatz. Room was good, nice size beds, amazing shower, although the room was incredibly hot. All the staff were really helpful and friendly, and the free beer vouchers were great.

Only annoying thing was that the rooftop bar closes at 10pm which is far too early, and you then have to go all the way from the seventh floor to the ground floor to smoke. But in the day it was great, amazing views.

Berlin is a big city so it's impossible to be close to everything but they are close to the subway which is awesome. The hostel was clean, rooms were great. Little things like a shower in the room and even better little outlets hooked up by each bunk make hostel life so much better. They had a great bar upstairs as well.
The only thing that bugged me about the hostel was poor wifi. You had to log in everytime you wanted to use it and it would frequently disconnect. The wifi also didn't work in the room at all so everytime we wanted to check something online we would have to go to the lobby. They have computers which they charge you to use.
