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.

+ bedding
+ fast WIFI in the entire building

Additional features

+ our lively womBar serves affordable drinks/cocktails/snacks and offers happy hours and regular events

+ 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!

    Wombat’s is the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in. The value for the price you pay is amazing. It is so clean, with a locker, clean beds, clean toilets, amazing kitchen and dining area. There is so much space where you can chill, work, study. There is nothing to complain about. I suggest wombat’s hostel in London for a short trip. It doesn’t feel like a hostel. It is more like a hotel. The staff were amazing as well.

    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. :)

    Overall it was a pleasant stay. The staff was nice and facilities are good, some of the facilities need a deposit and we need to prepare cash for it. The downside part are the street from the tube station to the hostel is a bit dodgy at night, my advice is you should go with a friend and we found three towels that haven't been cleaned in our room. But it was sorted and the hostel is totally worth it.

    Loved how each room had their own bathroom, it was cleaned very often. Staff were awesome and the bar downstairs was a chill vibe to sit at even if you’re travelling alone. Was a little walk away from the train station, but still found it easy to get around!

    Nice and clean hostel, centrally located near Tower Bridge. I had booked a dorm bed, but was given a private room, excellent. (Okay, it was a room with 1 bunk bed but the top bed was never occupied). Will stay again next time I’m in London, and then I’ll also check out the bar.

    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.
