Property Description

Wombat's The City Hostel London is definitely the place to stay if you want to experience all that London has to offer. Only minutes away from sights such as the Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, and the City Hall, it's next to Wilton’s Music Hall and an easy walk from the buzzing nightlife of Shoreditch. The location is ideal for young travellers. Not only is the location awesome, the building itself is breath-taking. Formerly a seamen's hostel, the building was converted to an amazing travellers' oasis featuring a huge bar, a courtyard, a cosy hangout area in the lobby, and all the amenities a backpacker could wish for.

Wombat's The City Hostel is proud to be one of the most experienced hostel chains (over 20 years of hostel expertise!) with a history of award-winning properties all over Europe: Budapest, London, Munich, and Vienna.

Wombat’s The City Hostel offers safe, clean, quality accommodation in either (1) a spacious dorm room with an ensuite bathroom and individual lockers for personal belongings or (2) a private room with two twin beds/one queen bed and private bathroom.

Included

+ bedding
+ fast WIFI in the entire building
+ our own Wombat’s city maps
+ fully-equipped guest kitchen (plus: free food section, including free noodles and rice)

Additional features

+ our lively womBar serves affordable drinks/cocktails/snacks and offers happy hours and regular events
*Currently the bar is opened Wednesday to Saturday.
+ coin-operated laundry facilities (washing and crying – oops, sorry about the typo, of course we mean drying), so you can re-vitalize your clothes ;)
+ bike rental

Cleanliness is something not to be taken for granted, and we take it very seriously. We’ve even won the 'cleanest hostel worldwide' award multiple times.

    I've been to many hostels around the world and this one is definitely one of the top ones. The atmosphere's amazing, staff's very nice and helpful, and the room's perfectly clean! Next time I visit London, I won't search for any other place to stay. :)

    Used this hostel for a one night stay after a rave, the staff were lovely and welcoming. A good mix of humans from all over. Nice bar and fairly cheap considering London standards of beer prices. Beds and hostel room were very clean. Shower was powerful and pretty big & clean. Considering the price of place I’ve stayed in more expensive hostels that were much much worse. 10/10 would stay again.

    That’s the third wombat I have stayed at, this is by far the cleanest, everything was spotless. Rooms are slightly smaller than the other wombats but still very good. Highly recommended

    The Hostel has amazing staff, really nice location and a good vibe. The bar is really cool and the rooms are in a separate place so you don't hear any noise. They offer a Breakfast for 5 pounds, which I don't think it's worth it. It doesn't have a lot of option and in the second day everything tasted old. The bathrooms could be more clear.

    The only thing I think that would have made it perfect, would be adding a curtain for each bed for more privacy. You get a locker for your bed, which is really nice because usually hostels offer them for a price but here it comes included. I couldn't hear any hallway noise which was nice, the walls weren't so thin. Also it was very secure, each floor had their own access with your keycard. Overall it felt like a hotel, it was very nice.

    Even though this is close to the city, it didn't feel close to the areas I enjoyed spending time in. The train station was a bit of a walk and there were no good food spots/groceries nearby. The facilities were nice and the building is huge. It was relatively clean, but the toilet smelled like pee. This hostel attracts a young and what felt like a rowdy crowd. I booked 5 nights and had roommates that weren't respectful. So I cancelled after the first night. This hostel is just okay.
