Staff were very helpful and the rooms extremely clean and modern! Good kitchen facilities and based in a good location! Great for young travellers, loved chilling on the roof terrace and in the wombar! Would definitely stay here again!

This was the best hostel of our trip and we liked it so much that we booked another Wombat's hostel in Vienna later in our holiday. The hostel has almost everything you want - luggage storage, secure lockers, cleanliness, a bar, a good cheap breakfast, laundry... The only thing it needs is AC because it was very hot and having the windows open made it quite noisy from the street. We had a good bunch of guys in our room as well which made it fun. The location is pretty good - maybe about half an our walk to the Bradenberg Gate but there is lots to see on the way and it is very close to a good shopping and restaurant area.

I've been in the hostel for 10 days in a 6 persons sharing room and the experience was very nice.
We were worried about choosing the hostel but withouth doubt it was the best choice!
The location is super, more if you want to be near of Alexanderplatz (about 10 minutes walking). The metro station is 2 minutes away and the area very quiet and with good bars and pubs to enjoy.
The atmosphere was very nice!!! We met very nice people arround the world and the bar in the last floor is the best!
The happy hour was very nice, good music, good people and excellent terrace where you can enjoy the Berlin views! If i'll go back, definetly i;ll go there. The price is very nice and the room clean and the bed nice.

Traveling as a couple, we rented a double room with ensuite.
The room was small, with a balcony (also small).
It was clean, as was the bathroom.
Great location, right next to a train station.
Staff were friendly, but we did have to wait for a while as it was busy.
Sleep quality was good, no noise complaints here.
Would return

We stayed in a private room on the 5th floor. The room was pretty good for a hostel. Nice and clean, free towels and decent shower/hot water.

There is as with any hostel a fair amount of noise. However with the fan (provided) in our room it drowned out most of the noise from other guests and was not a problem for us.

The breakfast was terrible. All cereals were so sweet they were hard to eat. The milk for cereal was warm. The meat and cheese were warm. We only used this once during our stay and never again. Also of note was the ladies re-stocking the food ect made you feel like you were inconveniencing them. Not exactly a great start to the day.

We found the hostel staff 50% really good and 50% terrible. The good was, great advice, printing out documents for us and insider tips on Berlin. The bad was rude and arrogant staff providing the worst advice almost to the point we thought they might of been doing it on purpose. Including terrible advice on travel within the city making us so late to a tour we had to re-schedule, as well as really bad advice on attractions, topped off with a general feeling from them of piss off and stop bothering us.

The Wifi here also is terrible at BEST! On check in the chick at the desk even said it's not their 'strong point'. Even as I am writing this it has dropped out 3 times and is so slow that even at reception (where the signal is strong) I could not even upload a single photo to Facebook.

It's a shame really as this could really be a decent hostel with some changes that wouldn't take much.

Did I mention the wifi is REALLY bad. After 30 seconds of access and trying to upload this review it has dropped out AGAIN!!!!!

Nothing to complain about this place. Own personal power points and makeshift "bedside tables" in the bunks. Friendly staff. Roomy bedrooms. Good decor. Good location. Comfy beds. Only odd and kind of annoying thing was the fact that to get a room key, you has to leave your passport or license with them at the desk until you returned the key. Also, the rooftop bar closed at 10pm which was disappointing- but not at the fault of the hostel (but due to surrounding people comparing).

So far on my trip across Europe Wombats has by far been the best hostel we've experienced! We are a group of three 18 year old girls and this hostel was perfect. It's in a great location with shops, restaurants, clubs, bars etc. all within walking distance and also very close to public transport facilities! The rooms were lovely and clean with private bathrooms and good wifi.

The rooftop bar was amazing and a great way to meet people. Everyone was so friendly and it's such a big and busy place that you're bound to make friends! You also get a free drink each at the bar. Great place to relax in the daytime and great place to have fun at night!

Directly opposite the hostel was a beautiful Vietnamese restaurant which was very good value and extremely nice food. The kitchen facilities in the hostel itself were also good.

Only downside is there's no free breakfast but I would definitely still recommend staying here!
