Atendimento dos funcionários que estavam lá, especialmente de uma brasileira que está sempre por lá, sendo super atenciosa com todos!
As máquinas de lavar, quando precisei utilizar, estavam 3 de 4, quebradas. Dificultou certo tempo para despender algo para fazer um processo muito simples

Good location - lots of great places to eat near by and the tram is right outside, and the train a very short walk! The water pressure in the shower was top notch! The rooftop has an amazing view over Berlin, and even our room had a great view! The fan was appreciated!
The rooftop bar needs to change up the music and vibe... it’s not great! Despite that they have good drink prices and friendly staff. The rooms felt quite dated.

Posizione ottima!! Colazione abbondante pagando 4,90€..
Credo sarebbe necessario mettere in ciascuna camera un regolamento!! Vista l’età di coloro che vi soggiornano parrebbe una richiesta futile e ridicola; io però purtroppo sono capitata in stanza con ragazze incivili: dalle carte gettate in terra (nonostante la presenza dei 2 cestini) all’intimo appeso in doccia (erano totalmente incuranti del fatto che sarebbe stata buona educazione dare spazio alle persone di lavarsi senza rischiare di farsi cadere addosso indumenti Non propri!).. Ripeto che si tratta di una questione di fortuna, nessuna colpa della struttura: ci tornerei sicuramente!!

I slept in this hostel for three nights, and I had a nice stay. The atmosphere is very happy, and the common areas are a nice place to hangout with friends. Although the neighborhood is not one of the safest in the city, you will always feel safe inside the hostel. Breakfast is ok. When I went in Munich it was very hot outside, and in the rooms there is no AC....this was a flaw.
Everything was clean.

Al ser un hostal enfocado sobretodo a gente joven, es importante saber que en la séptima pla ta está la discoteca. Si tu objetivo no es la noche y te propones madrugar o simplemente dormir, pide que te alojen en la primera o segunda planta o no dormirás.
Información sobre la discoteca ubicada en la séptima planta para poder pedir desde primera hora la habitación en las plnatas bajas y no después de una noche sin dormir.

The hostel is in a very good location, very close to Alexanderplatz and just off the subway station. Super easy to get there. Staff was cool, I didn't try the breakfast and the rooftop bar though. The ensuite bathrooms were cleaned daily and good! The rooms were spacious for the number of people but no AC made it like a sauna. The provided fan didn't do anything here. The beds had a bedside outlet and light.
The bed didn't have curtains and the mattresses were 10cm/4in foam and that was it so there is room for improvement here.

Good location, nice rooftop bar, laundry facilities on sight. Most staff friendly enough. Good food around the place. Really nice walk from hostel down main road to the Brandenburg Gate. Easy access to public transport. Clean and safe area, felt happy and confident to walk around day and night.
No privacy curtains around bunk beds. I stayed in a 6 bed all girls dorm and we had a male staff member barge in one morning demanding to know from each of us which bed number we were booked in to. Given I was hung over so I was probably extra annoyed by that experience. I don’t even know why he was asking us, as he didn’t explain what was going on. Just demanded to know which bed number each person was and then left.

Everything was great. Locations is the best, a lot of cafes and restaurant around, nice for walking around. Breakfast is amazing, worth of paying 5€ it’s like buffet (hams, breads, butter, fruits, cereals, nutella, etc) with decent coffee maschine. Room is big enough with bathroom, one key card for everything. Amazing stay Oh yes, rooftop is the best.????

I stayed at Wombat’s hostel in both Berlin and London and I loved the atmosphere of both locations. It is the perfect place to stay for young travellers either solo or small groups. There are nice common areas to chill in and you have access to all the facilities you could need as a traveller on a long journey around Europe. It was definitely a relief to arrive at property as nice and as well equipped for travellers as Wombat’s is, and we were certainly looking forward to visiting the London location after finishing up in Berlin. Couldn’t recommend it highly enough!

I am a solo female traveler and I was happy to meet a lot of people from around the world. I stayed in a mixed 6 person - bedroom for 4 nights and 3 days. I had social roommates who visited the East Gallery Wall and Wannsee Beach with me and then I explored the Berlin nightlife with my roommates and the people in the next room. We loved the Hostels' rooftop bar as a start to our night and visited multiple bars in the surrounding areas. A few of us decided to travel to Amsterdam together because we became really good friends! I recommend this place for solo female travelers because safety is not an issue.

The room and bathroom were cleaned daily and the staff was helpful. I was unaccustomed to carrying cash/coins with me, but the staff was able to exchange my bills for 50 cent coins for laundry machines ( 4 washers and 4 dryers).

tima localização na porta do metrô e tram. Restaurantes e mini-mercados abertos 24h! Staff da recepção cordial e prestativo. Pude usar o serviço de guarda-volumes mesmo após o check-out, então aproveitei mais algumas horas na cidade sem preocupações.
Wi-fi não funcionava no quarto (terceiro andar). Apesar de conectar na rede, não havia possibilidade de navegação. Ventilador colocado no quarto (ventilador de chão tipo torre) não ventilava as beliches mais longe da janela.

I stayed here with 2 friends in a dorm to ourselves. I had stayed in other Wombats hostels in Europe previously and pretty much knew what the expect but it definitely exceeded my expectations.

The location is great, just a short walk from Alexanderplatz and the TV tower and with numerous U and S bahn connections close by. The area itself is also well serviced with restaurants and there are loads of decent bars within walking distance but it's also a short train to the busier club areas if that's more your thing.

Our room was spacious with a table and chairs and a decent sized en-suite and we also had a lovely view of the TV tower from our window. Beds were comfortable and clean and what you'd expect from a good hostel. My only complaint was that the room got very hot in summer and the small stand up air con unit didn't really work and it would have been better to have a proper air con unit with remote. The curtains were black out though and keeping them closed while we were out helped keep things a little cooler when we came back in the evening.

I really liked the rooftop bar which had a lovely terrace with views of the city, chilling up here with a few drinks in the evening was wonderful and surprisingly for a large hostel it wasn't too hard to socialise with the other guests although I still personally would not pick a large chain hostel if I were travelling solo and wanted to meet others.

I'd have absolutely no problem recommending this hostel for others, particularly groups and we already have plans to come back next year for a weekend!

The property was conveniently located near all sorts of public transportation! The rooftop was amazing, with stunning views and the bar always had such a great energy. The amenities were clean and everything worked as it should!
We had booked prior ahead with a big group and had requested to stay in 2 dorms (obviously near each other). “Unfortunately” on the day of arrival we were placed in a dorm on the first and 5th floor. This turned out to be GREAT, cause we were able to see more of the hostel!

I stayed in Berlin for two days, one night. I arrived at 7am to the hostel (since my bus arrived at 5:40am). Apparently it's not a common thing or something to arrive that early to a hostel? I was well aware that check-in wasn't until 2pm, which I told the receptionist and asked if I could just leave my bag in the storage. He had a very serious, angry look on his face and told me that "It is already 7am, I have cancelled your reservation".

What? I stared at him. I thought he was joking. But nope, he firmly told me that I should have gotten here the day before after 2pm. Since I arrived after 7am, he cancelled my reservation. I was stunned. I told him that I have my reservation for tonight only, how could it be cancelled? He said that it was. After a minute of going back and forth, I was able to pull up my reservation and he realized that it was for tonight (as in later on that day, not the night before). He told me that checkout is at 2pm. ???!! I told him that I said that I was aware that checkin is at 2pm, I just need to leave my bag.

Beforehand, though, I asked if I could use the bathroom. He gave me a roomkey with a lock on it and said that this room on the first floor was for the toilet and that I could use it. Great. I go up, I go to the bathrom, quickly change my shirt and put on deodorant, pull my hair up quickly (I had just gotten off a 9 hour bus ride). When I go to open the door, I realize that he had been knocking on the door. He said: "I said that this room was for the toilet," and I look at him funny, "Yes, I know that. I was quickly changing my shirt since I was on a bus all night." He apologizes (but clearly didn't mean it), saying again that the room was only for the toilet and that he thought that I wanted to sleep in the room. I told him that I heard him the first time, it's only for the toilet, but I needed to change my shirt.

So, in other words, off to a bad start. I go off and enjoy the day until 2pm. I checkin, get my sheets, etc. I go up to my room. Not bad at all, very clean with lots of light. When I go to make my bed, I see that my bottom sheet has a lot of piling (the balls on the sheets) and the duvet is incredibly thick (not great for a summer night). Whatever. It's a cheap place, but I do wish that they had summer duvets especailly since there's no air conditioning in the rooms.

When you checkin, the hostel also gives you a voucher for a free welcome drink. I went up that night to redeem it, but lo and behold -- the rooftop bar area is not handicap-accessible. There are stairs with no railing at ALL. I could have stayed inside, but it was stuffy (again no air conditioning). I left my voucher on a table and went back to my room.

My roommates left the windows open before they left for the night, which was fine. But apparently we were facing some food place, and the room started smelling like onions. I closed the windows somewhat because the smell was too much.

The next morning, I had the breakfast in the hostel. Which wasn't bad at all! Hams and cheeses, bread, coffee, cereal....and hard boiled eggs!! Which has been rare for me to see. I ate and checked out. I was able to leave my bag in the storage all day which was nice.

All in all - would I stay here again? Only if this was my cheapest option and closest option. I didn't like the actual area it was in (had to go out of my way to find a grocery store!), but it was close to the tram so easy to get around.

Also note that if you need to have a bottom bunk due to mobility problems, they don't care. Beds are not assigned. So if you need a bottom bunk, get to the hostel right at 2pm for checkin (they won't start before 2pm) to secure a bottom bunk.

I liked the location.
I think the hostel should do more group activities. I wasn’t able to meet as many people since there was nothing bringing the guests together. So not great for a solo traveler like me

Es ist definitiv für junge Leute... aber unser Bett war schon bei Ankunft kaputt, und hat in der Nacht ganz den Geist aufgegeben.. haben danach ein neues Zimmer erhalten.. soweit so gut!
Aber sauber muss es dennoch sein.. haben diverses von den bornierten entdeckt.. das muss/darf nicht sein....
Man hat sich viel über die Tarifverträge der Mitarbeiter gehört, ... darf auch nicht sein...
