Hostelz.com's Review
Wombat's City Hostel Munich is one of the Wombats chain hostels in Europe. They have a few branches in Munich, Berlin, and Vienna. The staff are nice and efficiently helpful with all our needs. The hostel is brightly colored and promises a fun environment.

The Location

Wombat's Munich is strategically located five minutes' walk from the Central Station. Even if you arrived by plane, there will be train/buses that will drop you off at the Central Station -- getting to Wombat's is very easy. It is also surrounded by many shops, supermarkets, cafes, and restaurants. Most of places of interests in Munich are also within walking distance or you can take a metro from the Central Station.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The hostel is divided into two sections -- Receptionists and Internet Area, which are open to everyone; and to the other guest-only area, which includes the Bar, Garden, and Rooms. You must use a special card-key to access to the guest-only area and the room. Private rooms and six- to eight-bed dorm rooms are offered. Each room is equipped with private locker and bathroom. There is also a table with chairs where you can sit down and chat or play cards in the room.

The bathroom is clean with hot and cold shower. Hooks are available in the bathroom, but a small rack to put soaps and shampoos would be much nicer.

Common Spaces

The two most interesting area in the hostel are the garden and the bar. Yes, Wombats has a nicely decorated garden where we can sit down and read the books provided or chat around or playing cards in the sunlit garden, or we can go to the in-house bar and have some drinks or snacks till late.

Since this hostel can host up to three hundred people a night, meeting other people is definitely a must. Be prepared, however -- they might not sleep as early or as late as you. Even though they remind you to keep quiet after 11 p.m., sometimes it is easily forgotten.

Summary

We loved our stay in the hostel with its garden and nice facilities. Almost everything you need in a hostel is already in there, especially if you are looking for some fun all day and all night.

5   Couldn't be better Everything was perfect -- clean facilities, free lockers, free guided tours of the city from the lobby (to include a beer garden tour with free beer + schnapps shot!), cheap breakfast, and cheap drinks at the bar. The location is a block away from the main train stations, and everyone was extremely friendly. Only con was a little difficulty with the WiFi, but it can be accessed easily from the common area. Definitely where I'm staying when I go back to Munich.  , age 26, USA ()
5   Generally everything was good! Location, price, and facilities were all of excellent calibre! Would really recommend this hostel!  ()
5   Great place with friendly staff The place is right next to the main train station and it's really easy to find. It is modern, the staff is friendly and helpful, the dorms are comfortable and you can get a room for as cheap as 15€ per night during the week. The breakfast is not included, however you get a coupon for a free beer/wine at the check-in. All in all, a very pleasant stay.  ()
5   Good location, Great experience If you will be traveling by train, this hostel is just across the street from the station. It offers wifi, lockers which are operated by your room key card, bar within the hostel and friendly service. There are bike rental businesses within a short walk (there is one in the train station). You are within a few kilometers from viktualienmarkt, Der Pschorr, the Hofbräuhaus, parks, the Paulaner brewery, the Löwenbräu brewery and plenty other sites. PROS -- Good location to attractions nearby. Reasonably clean environment. Personal lockers. Bar within hostel. Friendly staff. CONS -- Wifi is ok, slow, but accessible from your room or the lobby. Prices are just above average. Overall, I was impressed by our stay here.  , age 25, USA ()
5   Fun and Amazing hostel Absolutely amazing hostel, with great staffs and all amenities required for traveler. Bedrooms are clean with individual (huge) locker, clean sheet of linen for new guest. In-house bar is a great fun to meet fellow traveler. The only downside -- wifi is only available in lobby.  ()
5   One of best hostels Ive stayed at over a hundred hostels and this one is hard to beat. There's not a negative comment I can think of. Location fantastic as is facilities. Security and cleanliness. Recommend 100%.  , New Zealand ()
4   Friendly, Clean, Close to München Hauptbahnhof Stayed in a mixed 6, there were power outlets with shelf and light at every bed, and a picnic style table in the room. Beds reasonably sized and comfortable enough (i'm 6'2). Keycard operated all security doors and also the individual in-room locker, neat. Wifi is free but only works in the lobby, boo. Staff are friendly and super helpful. The in-house bar is probably a little too fun, we ended up drinking a night away instead of taking more advantage of our limited time in Munich.  , age 35, USA ()
4   Great place to stay Clean sheets, good beds, friendly staff, bar at Hostel is good to meet people. Breakfast was also good. Wifi only available in lobby, not it rooms. Not great air circulation in the bedroom (but it was summer time so I really can't complain there) but overall a great place to stay.  , USA ()
3   Average at best Pros: Close to train station, lively bar, air conditioned atrium, very few old people and no school groups. Good key card security system. Helpful printouts to take with you for day trips like dachau or neuschwanstein. Cons: Only one electrical outlet in a six bed dorm and it's for the fan. I kid you not. One! That loses two stars alone right there. Wifi only in lobby. The maid turns off the fan every day. Dorm rooms are hot, drapes thin, beds thin, shower not impressive. All the mattresses are twin long and all their sheets are twin, have fun putting those on. And at 28 euros/night it's definitely overpriced. Conclusion: Try one of the neighboring hostels, there are a bunch on that same street.  , usa ()
3   Clean beds and friendly staff This place was good because it's super close to the train station, and walking distance to downtown. The staff was very friendly and knew a lot about how to get places in the area. There is a hostel bar which is cheap and good for meeting others, unfortunately it closes a bit early. The internet was not great (service was constantly interrupted) but for meeting others and having a clean bed it was good. I would stay there again.  , USA ()
