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.

    The wombat is a great place for solo and group travelers! We went as a group of three females in a mixed 4 bed room for a week and great experiences. The rooms are clean with spacious lockers and the breakfast marked all the boxes.

    Place is really clean, a lot of spaces available to use, cozy atmosphere during the night in the bar/kitchen area. I wad allowed to use the bar/kitchen area downstairs even after checkout which was so cool as my flight was still in 12 hours, also they have a luggage storage, all in all it was a very good experience.

    Everything was clean and lovely the entire time!! Only thing was there didn’t seem to be a lot of single travelers so it was harder to meet people. But that also could have been my jet lag influencing me. Free towels and clean everything!! Loved the whole experience!

    This was one of the biggest hostels ive ever stayed at! It had like 8 floors, a rooftop terrace, an amazing kitchen, courtyard and bar in the basement. I had no trouble meeting fellow travelers as a solo traveler myself. Also towels are free to rent!

    Fabulous

    Wombat has a big reputation, and with big reputations come high expectations. The Pros: THE BAR! Always a good spot to find like minded travelers, this one in particular in a cellar type basement is great. THE LOCATION Right next to Tower hill and great Tube connections, Ideal base to explore London. No sketchy people staying permanently in the hostel. The Cons: Kitchen is too small for amount of people that stay here. Staff at the front desk could learn to smile. Can feel anonymous with so many

    Fabulous

    My first ever hostel and have very little to complain about! The only thing is that the location is not amongst the hustle and bustle of London. It’s close to Tower Hill station which is great and makes getting places easy, but the area is pretty deserted especially at night, so as a female solo traveller I’ve just had to make sure I don’t come back too late at night.

    Very Good

    27 Jun 2022
    Our room was clean, but the bathroom was not ideal. The shower door allowed for the entire bathroom to flood and the room smelled like stale, old urine. Also, I think it might be time for some new bedding and mattresses. The mattresses were pilling and a couple had weird stains and the pillows were just flat..everyone in the room commented on them. The staff was wonderful, reception was great, and the common areas were lovely, but I’m not sure I would stay again.
