The #WombatsTraveller challenge for upcoming influencers

Here’s how it works

Three talented content creators are taking the #wombatsTraveller challenge and join experienced travel influencers from iAmbassador for a 4-day trip to two wombat’s destinations (Berlin, Vienna, Budapest, London and Munich) in June. Together, they will create content and share their travel experiences via their blogs and social media. The experienced bloggers will be there to mentor and provide tips on content creation, building an audience and social media marketing.

Based on their performance, a jury will then decide who will be the #wombatstraveller in 2019. The main factors which the jury will focus on include the style/quality of the content, diversity of media used and level of engagement.

Here are the teams, that are competing in the challenge:

Follow their trips on the Hashtag #wombatstraveller on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook

Why do we do this?

By travellers for travellers is the credo of wombat’s hostels. Everyone at wombat’s shares the passion for travel. The same passion that is required to make traveling your profession and become an influencer.
We’re celebrating our 20th birthday with the grand opening of wombat’s VENICE Mestre next year. Therefore we’ll have special events in Berlin, Budapest, London, Munich and Vienna throughout our anniversary.
To honor this anniversary we decided to run a special challenge: the #wombatsTraveller 2019!

We give one young travel blogger chance to take your blog and/or social media presence to the next level on the basis of a paid internship as a brand ambassador for wombat’s between April and September 2019.

We love working with influencers and over the years we have learned a lot about the efforts and skills that stand behind a successful influencer.
We are extremely happy to partner up with iAmbassador for this project. It’s great to have them on board and rely on the expertise of a huge travel blogger network and many years of experience in the field.

Isn’t it great to work at a hostel? All the crazy shit you experience and the funny stories, but yet again there’s so much stuff you can’t share with people outside the hostel bubble.

Good news! wombat’s brings the bubble together for the 5th International Hostel Staff Meeting.

If you can make it for the 25th until 27th November.

wombat’s Budapest will be hosting this event and supplies a limited number of free beds available only for hostel staff.

If you work at a hostel or run one yourself, feel free to send an e-mail from your hostel account over to events[at]wombats.eu and we’ll do our best to squeeze you in.
It is going to be a beautiful opportunity to network and share the stories and experiences of hostelling.

Obviously this will turn into a crazy party weekend at some point, but we’ll try to let it appear as professional as possible.

Our lovely staff at wombat’s Budapest already arranged a walking tour, a Hungarian cooking session, a pub crawl and some other specials.

You’re definitely going to enjoy Budapest to the fullest, join us!

Check out the Facebook event!

Kiraly Street is the place to be in Budapest! All the restaurants and ruin pubs are a couple minutes walk from wombat’s in Budapest, making this location absolutely ideal. As I walked into the lobby, I saw a diverse group of backpackers playing pool and a few sitting at tables looking at maps, no doubt deciding where to go next. What a cool traveler community this is!

I got to Budapest by train, so ended up taking a metro line to Kiraly street where I then walked to wombat’s. Travel time from the train station was approximately 10 minutes, and I had no problem finding it based on website directions. Just don’t forget to exchange your money as Hungary’s currency is the Forint, not the Euro.

At the reception, wombat’s also suggests a few free walking tours, which are a great way to see the city. I walked 90% of the time, even though it was winter, to get where I was going. I would suggest taking a few hours to go through The House of Terror, a museum that details both the Nazi and Communist eras in Hungary. The building itself was the headquarters of several of these groups and it held many political prisoners. Very intense, but interactive, educational, and worth seeing.

In Budapest there are events called Sparties, or “Spa Parties” at the thermal baths. It is basically a thermal bath turned into a nightclub, complete with drinks, mist, lights, and music. Even though clubs aren’t typically my scene, I had to do it for the experience. I bought a ticket for the New Year’s Eve Sparty and it was definitely fun and different, and something I haven’t seen anywhere else in the world! Being winter, it was cold getting out of the pool, but I would imagine in the summer it is just perfect.

Lastly, other than all the obvious historical sights, I highly suggest going to a few ruin pubs. My favorite was Szimpla Kert, a popular ruin pub about 5 minutes walk from wombat’s. It has an outdoor area for hookah, and several rooms full of random decorations. Don’t worry if there is a long line, it moves extremely fast!

My experience at wombat’s in Budapest was awesome and I can’t wait to go back! Budapest is definitely one of those cities that has fascinating historical sights mixed with fantastic food and nightlife. I will definitely be back!

As many of you already know, we open a new wombats CITY HOSTEL in Budapest in June. As the construction works are on the way, we want to reveal some first facts and pics:

The wombats CITY HOSTEL BUDAPEST will be the biggest wombats so far with 461 beds in 112 rooms with bathrooms ensuite. We think it is one of the most splendid hostels you’ll see in a long time – and one of the most affordable ones, too. Because great quality and design should not affect our well-established value for money budget prices.

The Location couldn’t be better: a very short walk from Deák Square, the city’s main transportation hub where all three metro lines stop. We’re in the middle of the bohemian 6th district, with lots of unique nightlife venues and all the sights of the Pest side of town within easy walking distance.

To get a first picture of the new wombats CITY HOSTEL Budapest, have a look at the renderings below. First real pics will follow as soon as we got the construction process done. We hope to welcome you this summer in Budapest – rooms can already be booked on the wombats Budapest website.

Budapest is one of the most upcoming and most awesome city for travellers: So many historical sights, the beautiful Danube in the centre, a great nightlife and countless things to do. That’s why we are veeeeery proud to announce that a new Budapest hostel will open right in the centre of the city.

And it will be big time: 112 rooms with 461 beds! However, there will be loads of work until we can welcome the first guests. Right now the building is a 4 star hotel and we want to turn it into a 5 star hostel in pretty ‘wombats style’ until June 2012 (this will be the expected opening date).

The wombats founders Sascha and Marcus are happy to enter the future wombats building

And that’s the plan: Outside, we will leave the face of the building as it is (it’s beautiful). Inside, there will be grave changes, as we want to give the rooms a whole new design. And there will be all the goodies you know from our other hostels, for example a big womBar as place to meet other travellers, chill out or make some decent party.

For more information just have a look at the official website of the wombats CITY HOSTEL Budapest or our Facebook page. You can already book your bed for your stay in the Hungarian capital. We will be happy to welcome you in Budapest!
