The Hostelz.com Review

When looking for a great place to stay in Munich, Wombat's City Hostel Munich will provide anything and everything. This hostel is clean; safe; and above all else, it is a fun place to stay!

The Location

Located in the heart of Munich, Wombat's City Hostel is surrounded by everything a traveler will need. If arriving by train, the hostel is only one block from the train station (Munchen Hauptbahnhof). There are multiple metro stations within a few blocks of the front door. There are several choices for food in the local area, including the super market Lidl, which is located on the south side of the block.

Rooms and Bathrooms

In the six-bed dorm room, expect to have more than enough room to be comfortable. The beds are spaced out enough to give the room much more openness. In the center of the room is a large, wooden bench table. The lockers are spacious and are locked/unlocked using the magnetic strip on the room key card. The bathrooms in the room and public areas are clean during all hours of the day and evening. Each day between noon and 2 p.m., cleaning crews work on the dorm rooms, which keeps everything fresh. The rooms also include large windows, which provide plenty of natural light.

Common Spaces

The indoor courtyard is an excellent place to relax or socialize with other travelers. Along with plenty of chairs and tables, the courtyard has a long, wraparound couch against the wall that can fit a dozen people. Throughout the room, there are also power sockets to keep your electronics charged up.

The next room behind the courtyard is the hostel bar. The bar is enormous and even includes some couches in the very back of the room. On busy nights, expect close to a hundred people packed into the hostel bar. The beer prices are slightly lower than the outside bars, and they do have specials each night of the week. The bar is also the location of the breakfast buffet. If getting breakfast at the hostel, be sure to take advantage of the panini toaster!

Summary

If there is anything negative about this hostel, it is the cost. The breakfast and laundry services are a bit more expensive than other hostels. It would also be nice to see the hostel bar have a larger price difference than other local bars and restaurants. Wombat's City Hostel Munich is a large and exciting place to stay. If you're looking for a quiet place to rest, this hostel may be a bit too much; expect a party atmosphere but with hotel-like rooms and service.

Good but very loud
Great staff, nice amenities, good room with en suite, but our room that overlooked the street was really loud at night.

Good choice
The bathroom is clean and the atmosphere is so nice. There is a bar and a garden with hammocks. The guys there are also very nice, they give helpful tips, make jokes, and the reception is round the clock. I can't find some reason not staying there next time except Nov is not a good season for traveling cause a lot of attractions are closed.

Great location
Very central location, clean rooms and great security. Wifi connection was a bit poor and was very frustrating.

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.

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.

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.
