Wombats Hostel, Budapest

I have been fortunate to stay in two of the Wombat Hostels in Vienna. So I know how good they are. This is why I chose to stay at their newest hostel in Budapest.  It was opened in 2012. The hostel itself is located in the centre of the city close to the River Danube and St. Stephen’s Basilica.

The rooms are large and are of a high standard. Each bunk has a socket and reading light.


Each room also has a table a set of chairs.


The bathrooms are of a good size, plenty of room to move around.


Entrance to your room is by security card. The same card is also used as your locker key.

As you would expect there are plenty of facilities.  The reception area is huge.  There are plenty of places to sit down including a big chill out area. There is also a large kitchen and dining area. Breakfast is served daily and costs €3.50. Next to the kitchen is the laundry area. Like any good hostel there is a bar where you can redeem your free drinks voucher.

By the hostel there are places of places to go and eat or have a take away. If you are looking for supplies there is a 24-hour supermarket nearby. Should you have the misfortune of having toothache I counted two dentists in the area.

Finally I have to mention the friendly staff. They were ever so helpful when I experienced problems with travel to Vienna. It was certainly a plus point for me.

If you travel to Budapest then this is the only place in my opinion to stay. It has everything, location, facilities and a good vibe. I am going to choose it again.
