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.

    This was the best hostel experience I've ever had! The staff were so friendly and helpful, the room and bathroom were really clean and the location was perfect. It's located in an amazing area with lots of restaurants, bars and coffee shops. The metro and train station were within walking distance. The bar downstairs is so vibey, and I think it's really cute they give you a welcome drink. Free towels and printing too, which was excellent.

    Fabulous hostel. One of the best and largest I've ever stayed in. Great facilities including a very spacious bar and reception lobby. Super clean, modern bathrooms, comfy bunks, very convenient location to take public transportation (underground, overground, and DLR), only three blocks away from the tower bridge! super helpful staff especially Wayne who went beyond and over to find me good places to eat and book me a Stonehenge tour. Book in advance because this is a very popular hostel.

    I traveled with myself and 3 others! We had a great trip here. Within 10 minutes walk of the transportation, which made it very easy to explore. The staff was great and let us store our luggage when we arrived and when we departed and gave a great recommendation to visit Spitalfields Market!! We weren’t here long so we weren’t in the hostel much, but when we were we enjoyed the services provided. Would highly recommend this hostel and would stay here again next time I’m in London!

    The location was extremely inconvenient and far from the touristic sites. The staff was very unfriendly and careless: They charged my friend's credit card without her consent the full/total amount and it took hours to do the refund. They took hours to check us in and they need your ID in return of each house cards. Overall the experience was quite unpleasant and the hostel is not conveniently located. It's a bit of a walk away from the metro station and would totally not recommend it again.
