Overview

Come and rest your feet here at friendly Wombat’s City Hostel London. We were once a seaman’s hostel, so look out for our quirky little nooks and skylights – and now we're the perfect base for travellers exploring the iconic city sights. We'll even give you a free welcome drink on arrival! Get to know fellow travellers in our courtyard, comfy lounge or cool cave-like bar. Or get chatting over board games, table football or pool. Arriving late? That's no problem – we've got a 24-hour reception.

Location

Our hostel is in a prime spot in Whitechapel, close to the famous Tower Bridge, Tower of London and the iconic Wilton's Music Hall. Save your data with our free city maps to find your way – we’re a short walk from Tower Hill, Aldgate East and Aldgate underground stations. (Useful if you're spending a day exploring vibrant Brixton or colourful Notting Hill.) Nearby Shoreditch has buzzing nightlife, trendy restaurants and coffee shops for that all-important caffeine fix.

Rooms and Dorms

All our rooms (private doubles and twins, mixed dorms and female dorms) have private showers and hand-luggage-sized lockers for stowing your valuables. No need to bring a padlock: we'll give you a smart card that works for your locker and your room. We've won Hostelworld’s 'Cleanest Hostel Worldwide' award twice, so rest assured, we know how to keep things spotless! We'll provide your bed linen, so you won't need to bring a sleeping bag.

Extras and activities

Our all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet is a bargain, or if you prefer to cook, make yourself at home in our modern kitchen. The hostel's also got a spacious bar where you can chat to other travellers over a beer. There's free Wi-Fi available throughout the hostel, so you can send your mates (and your mum) the best photos from your trip. You can hire a towel from us and wash your clothes using our on-site laundry facilities, so you can free up space in your bag for souvenirs.

    Great hostel, very well positioned for central London. Great safety when I stayed, customers were spread out 1 per room (including dorms). Although you didn’t get the same environment meeting new people in your room it was good to know they were keeping people safe. Stayed whilst taking a week-long course and absolutely no problems. Thanks guys :-)

    The facilities and rooms were exceptionally well maintained and clean. I felt very welcome by the staff which were friendly and helpful to any questions that I asked. Security is not an issue as they use key cards to enter the building, doors and your own locker so your personal belongings are secure! It's shame because of COVID-19 the hostel was quite as they can only permit a limited amount of people. For the time being expect to have a dorm to yourself, I didn't have a problem with this tho.

    I love Wombats and I’ve stayed both in Munich and in London. The rooms are quite clean and secure and the shower/toilet facilities are so spacious and hotel-like (unlike in other hostels where you could barely fit yourself in!). My only complaint this time around was the WiFi wasn’t working the whole time I was there (both in the room and in the hostel lobby downstairs). Overall, Wombats is highly recommended! Keep it up guys!

    I enjoyed this hostel it’s a little out of the way as it’s near the Tower Bridge. But if using the Tube it is accessible as it’s a 10 minute walk from the tube to the hostel doors. Great food nearby pizza and margaritas for 5 usd. Hostel is really clean. Super secure and safe you need your key for everything. Hostel does have a fun game night and they take you to a club after. Staff is really great as well!
