Wombats City Hostel: The best hostel in Berlin?

Travels of Adam? Travels of a wombat! Wombat Wednesday follows Mr. Wombat on his travels around the world.

Wombats City Hostel, Berlin

If there’s one thing Mr Wombat loves more than himself, it’s things named after him. Here’s the scoop:

As I’m prone to do, I posted to Twitter that I was going to be flying to Berlin soon (this was already more than a month ago). And because Twitter is awesome, @emilyhphoto (a Seattle area photographer) immediately replied & offered to recommend some places in Berlin. She graciously e-mailed me a long list of things to do and places to stay. But something immediately stood out: a hostel named Wombats…in Berlin?!

I knew it’d be a match made in heaven.

Wombats City Hostel is undoubtedly awesome. A little more expensive than some of the other nearby hostels, it’s got an incredible reputation among travelers. Since staying there I’ve spoken to lots of other folks who’ve traveled to Berlin, and everyone seems to know of this place. Mr Wombat and I were lucky to stay twice, actually. I hopped around from hostel to hostel (and couchsurfer to couchsurfer) more than a handful of times, but of the the four hostels I visited in Berlin, Wombats was probably my favorite. I had more than a handful of incredibly fun nights out that all started up on the rooftop bar. Though I might be a bit biased, because really, who could deny the awesomeness of a place named after the most adorable animal in the world?!

    St. Christopher’s is a really nice hostel. I love it when I was there in 2009.

      I’ve heard good things about the St. Christopher’s chain. Haven’t stayed in one myself but I think I’d probably like it.

  6. Bob Crunch says:

    That is pretty cool that there is a hostel named the Wobats City Hostel. I wonder if there are any other hostels or hotels named after animals? Great article!

  7. Jerick P says:

    I stayed in Wombats in Berlin too – I agree that the rooftop bar was pretty amazing, we even got rooms with the view of the TV tower!

  8. Great hostel! If you’re booking a hostel and want to meet others who will be there before your trip you should think about using for an even more social experience!

    […] Like any good story in Europe, this one starts in a hostel—not one of your Germany vacation rentals. And like any good backpacker story from Berlin, it starts at Wombats City Hostel—quite possibly the coolest hostel in Berlin. […]
