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.

    AMAZING HOSTEL! The social atmosphere was amazing and I met so many interesting people. Facilities were also great: clean bathrooms and beds, great kitchen, awesome breakfast (definitely worth the 5 pounds). I’ll be returning whenever I can!

    Great vibe, great experience, felt super safe on my own at 18. Had a great time talking to a Canadian couple til 2 am in the pub and the personal lockers associated with your key cards blew my mind!

    In an excellent location in East London. Near to Shoreditch & Hackney with easy access to Tower of London and a reasonable walk to Southbank attractions such as the Globe. Be mindful, the area can look "dodgy" but it's perfectly safe. The lockers are secure but won't fit a large suitcase. My room had plenty of space to keep suitcases on the floor and there are two swipe access points before you get to your room. Summer the rooms were hot!!

    Wombats was a great stay, staff were lovely and the bar was super social! Only qualm was that the pillows and Quilt were quite old and looking worn. Location was great for the tower bridge and Tower of London but we found ourselves over the other side of the city in Soho for nightlife. Staff were absolutely amazing, such a great bunch of people! Would absolutely come back!

    The room I got was on the 5th Floor and had no air conditioning, the first 2 nights were exceptionally warm. In terms of location it’s about 10 minute walk to your nearest subway stations, not ideal for everyone. Not a lot of shops and cafes/restaurants in the area. The rooms were clean enough, not spotless but clean. Shower was great!

    Really disappointed in my stay- friendly staff but the rooms were way too hot to be able to sleep in Requested the windows be opened to let air in but couldn’t due to security reasons- asked for refund but told me to speak to manager Investing in a fair cooling system would be help a lot Overall I wouldn’t reccomend this hostel
