Wombats Hostel in Budapest is an excellent choice for those travelling alone and for those that are on a budget as it can’t be located more centrally than within 10 minutes walk to the major transportation hub of Deak Ferenc ter Station, where 3 major metro lines meet and many buses and trams depart from there. 5 Star hotels such as Le Meridien are located in the same vicinity so you can imagine how strategic the location is.
The lobby is gorgeous, with light flowing from the stained-glass ceilings. It felt more like a boutique hotel instead of a hostel. Most of the staff are extremely helpful and friendly (except for one that was kind of indifferent).
The hostel is located on Kiraly Street, surrounded with plenty of eateries you’ll never have to worry about what to eat. If none of the eateries suit you, the supermarket is just down the street.
Lifts and staircase are available to bring you to your room. Even the staircase is curvy and elegant.
The 4-bedded room is simple (16 Euros per night for one bed) – two bunk beds with a coffee table and a few stools. There is a charger right by the bedside so your electronic products will surely be charged.
There are lockers to place any important belongings. The key to the locker is already given to you when you check in – the plastic card (with some sort of magnetic waves I think?) that you use to enter the room also doubles up as the key to the locker. Press the card onto the black knob to open or lock it. Nifty.
The bathroom is basic but clean though it does get a bit messed up when there are 4 girls sharing it.
