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. * Please note: due to the pandemic, our bar remains closed at the moment.

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.

+ bedding
+ fast WIFI in the entire building

+ 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.


By travellers for travellers

We have travelled the world ourselves - so we know firsthand what travelling is like and what you expect from us. We care about you and listen to your feedback.

We provide an inviting, safe atmosphere for you to retreat to at the end of the day. After you've been on the road, seeing sights and walking until your feet ache, it's good to know you've got a comfy place waiting for you at our hostel, where you can chill, drink beer, exchange travel wisdom, and make new friends.

Among all these extras and details, there’s one thing that makes Wombat’s truly stand out. It’s the hostel atmosphere that we all love: travellers sharing not only a space, but an experience.

Your stay is bound to be a memorable one!

    Very great hostel. Super friendly staff and a nice location close to an Underground station. The price was fair and descent, especially when you think of London prizes in general.

    Amazing staff (3 encountered), great location in the heart of London, great vibes even though no bar open, people were great in the room (4 bed dorm) and I’m sure I’ll be back once covid has passed properly so I can see a new lease of life to this already wonderful place!

    This hostel is really nice and has got good atmosphere, the location of the hostel is amazing and the staff is so friendly and nice, but the cleanliness is a bit disappointing, also it was disappointing that the bar was not open and the fact that I booked a bed in a mixed dorm but we were all boys in the room, which made the cleanliness issue even worse, mixed dorms should be mixed!

    Would be good place to stay once fully up and running but no bar or breakfast facilities at the moment. Also probably not enough staff. Had long wait at reception to collect key even with checking in online. Also I did not think carrying used linen right through the hostel and leaving in reception was a good idea. Previous guests had left sheets on beds so on arrival it was not clear which beds were free. A linen skip on each floor might have been helpful
