Wombats City Hostel London, London, England

I am not sure why this hostel is ranked quite to high. Yes, it is a good hostel with good facilities, including a bar downstairs. The front desk also rents umbrellas and adapters if needed. But I didn't feel the hostel was anything spectacular. The bedding is fairly old and worn, and the bathrooms weren't kept too clean. Additionally, the distance from the "main" part of town is a bit far. Its about a 10-15 min walk to the tube, and then another 15-20 min to get to the main touristy sights.

This is probably the nicest hostel I have ever stayed in. Huge in-room lockers, each bunk has it's own outlet with light. There is really fast wi-fi throughout the entire hostel. They give you two tokens for each night you're staying there, and you can use them on free coffee/espresso or even the laundry facilities! Perfect location in between both train stations in Interlaken. Highly recommend.

This place is great! The views of the Alps from the old building are unparalleled. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. There are lockers for storage in the room. The only cons include lack of kitchen facilities to use for guests, and the fact there was one outlet for 6 people in our room. The hike up to the hostel is a bit steep and slippery in the winter, but there is a bus you can take if needed. But those things aside, would definitely recommend staying here!

My only real complaint is with the kitchen. The hostel is massive, and the kitchen only has two stove burners to cook food. That became challenging when many people wanted to cook food.

Awesome place. Super friendly and helpful staff (helped book me on a scuba trip). There is a bar/restaurant there, but no kitchen or anything if you wanted to cook/store your own food. Highly recommend for the location and value!

Luka is awesome, super helpful and friendly. The lodge has a great location. Beds are comfortable, but our bathroom was pretty dirty and didn't have any hot water

Good place to stay. Management was very helpful and nice. I didn't realize this place wasn't a "true hostel" in that there is no common area to cook your meals etc. that said, there is a kitchen where you get free breakfast and can buy meals (cheap prices) throughout the day. Fairly clean facilities although our comforter did have a large blood colored stain on it...

Wasn't too pleased. The trash was over flowing and all over the floor and no staff member was emptying it. This YHA also charged me more than they should have and when I emailed to inquire about the overcharge- nobody ever responded. Staff also wasn't too polite. This was the second YHA I have stayed at. In all honesty, I will be avoiding these as much as possible in the future.

Kitchen was closed when it should have been open. Not much personality. The other two people in my room checked in at 3 am which I think shouldn't have been allowed in a room that was full of other people. You can't store your luggage and have to pay for lockers. Not impressed

I would only stay here for the location. But I would probably look for another hostel. I was awake in the middle of the night listening to nice running in the ceiling. The kitchen trash cans were only emptied once a day so were always full and trash was always falling out on the ground. Not the best.

Great place to stay! Outside of the city, but only a short bus ride or cheap can away. The hostel is in a neighborhood so the deck closes at 10. The staff is friendly and it has a very homey feel.
