Property Description

A safe haven in the middle of the metropolis: We took a traditional brick building with roots going back to the 1800s and set a new standard for hostel life in the UK.
What used to be sailors' lodgings in the olden days is now a hostel satisfying all needs of the modern traveler. With great attention to detail, we have created a hostel in London that celebrates the legacy of our historic building.
Old oak that was previously part of sturdy ships and churches is now immortalized in our furniture throughout the house. The pints you drink here will be served on a bar made from 500-year-old wood.

But as comfortable as our hostel might be, London's calling - and London's call is hard to ignore, given our location:
Our Wombat's City Hostel is situated in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, right next to famous Tower Bridge and Tower of London, charming markets, authentic pubs, and plenty of other historic sights.
A short walk will see you in the trendy Borough of Shoreditch with vibrant street art, pulsing nightlife at Hoxton Square and Old Street and finally Brick Lane, where some of the best curries outside of India can be found.
All other hotspots in London are easily accessible by public transport: The Underground- and DLR-Stations Aldgate East and Tower Bridge are just a stone's throw away.

After a long and exciting day in London, our hostel awaits you with a cozy courtyard, spacious lobby and womBAR. Here you can unwind and enjoy our reliably unexpected offers.
All rooms are equipped with ensuite bathrooms and private lockers.

Included as always - our Wombat's basics:
- bedding
- WiFi
- our own Wombat's city maps
- the womBAR for never-ending parties & WomDollar discount on your drinks
- a guest kitchen open to all who want to cater to their own culinary needs
- 24/7 Reception
- safe luggage storage
- rentables (umbrellas, hairdryers, adapters: everything an avid traveler could possibly need)
- coin-operated laundry facilities (washing and crying ... oops, sorry about the typo, of course we mean drying), so you can re-vitalize your clothes ;)

Our famous Tasty Brekkie buffet ensures you have enough energy for your exciting day in London. You can buy your tickets for a small fee at reception.

    best place to stay in London for solo or group travelling, rooms are cleaned daily and fresh linen is available on request. very social environment with the downstairs bar, decked out with pool, table tennis, and beer pong. Only a 10 minute walk from the train station with unreal restaurants near by, highly recommend Pizza Union. only con would be the dryers in the laundry aren’t great but there is a clothes line to use. For sure will be back.

    Great hostel to stay at, I keep returning here when I come to London. (Review based on 6 berth female dorm): Very clean, modern bathroom with AMAZING shower. Bunk beds are stable, lockers big enough to fit my whole rucksack, backpack and jackets and they lock with your room key. Free towels. Bar is a vibe. Only they haven’t organised group tours and things yet so if you’re on your own it’s a bit of a bummer! But there’s always people in the bar if you’re friendly :) is a 5min walk to tube.

    Not bad after all... But the room I stayed in is on the ground floor (well, basically -1) and there were only windows on the ceiling which were digitally controlled. Room felt a bit stuffy and not so welcoming due to the limited sunlight. Other than that - staff were nice and place was generally clean for a popular London hostel.

    Hostel facilities are quite good, but i had the worst experience. In the middle of the first noght, one of the employees woke me up saying i have to switch rooms because i made a mistake, and booked for women doorms. I double checked it, and I made the reservation as remembered- 7 bed mixed dorm. So 3 am had to pack all of my stuff and get back yo reception. No one helped me. No one even looked me in the eyes and said sorry for the situation. Worst hostel experience i could imagine.
