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.

    I was looking for a hostel that was clean and has an in-house bar and Wombats was the perfect fit! The toilets/bathrooms are spotless with no grime or mildew, well-lit and clean hallways, plus incredibly friendly staff. If they see you struggling, as we tourists usually do, they don’t hesitate to assist you. The bar has a rustic decor, which creates a wonderful ambiance to relax in the late hours of the night. From Wombats you can visit the Tower of London and Tower bridge with a 15 minute walk.

    Awesome experience there. I was a solo traveler for the first time so I was a bit nervous going into it. But everyone was super friendly and had a very lively atmosphere. The hostel is walking distance to the Tower of London and the bridge so right off the bat you can start your trip with beautiful sightseeing. Staff were super helpful, I checked out and left the hostel and forgot my boots and they were kind enough to check them for me and save them for me! So I highly recommend 🙏

    The location is pretty far from the city center, but London is SO BIG. It is right by the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. From there, you can take the metro or even walk right into town. The hostel has good security and is clean. The bar is also AMAZING. Very big in an old cellar below the hostel.

    Only stayed two nights in 6bed but thoroughly enjoyed the experience.Great spaces to meet people.Felt absolutely safe at all times (in regards to belongings too.) Impeccable room, spotless shower room. Lovely staff. My hostel standards are high now :(for the price, you can't ask for any better in London. Most of what you need, there's people to have a laugh with all the time because of the 'interactive' layoutof the place.can find personal space too.Busy in Feb so can't imagine in months after:0

    Would stay again. Staff was engaging and had different events every night. Everything was great. Close to multiple tube stations, plenty of restaurants (check out Bar + Block Steakhouse), having a washer/dryer is always nice. Thanks!

    The only reason that I gave this a lower rating was because of its location and slightly high price. It was somewhat removed from the nightlife of London, and some of the major attractions and the closest tube station was a 10-minute walk. Everything about it was amazing otherwise, with a bar in the basement (you can't hear any noise from it in your room!), and a staff that encourages people to interact. Free towel available, which was nice because I forgot my travel towel. 5 pound breakfast/day

    This is my favorite hostel to stay in when I'm in London. The location is only a 10-minute walk away from both Aldgate East and Tower Hill Underground stations which is incredibly convenient. Security is always tight with keycard-locked lockers and doors.

    Fabulous

    I had a pretty good experience. I liked that the rooms are white and modern. I booked a mixed dorm and was told that there will be at least one female at all times, but the first 3 nights (out of 4) I was the only female! I didn’t feel too uncomfortable with males so I decided not to ask for change of rooms. My main issue was that it was super cold in my room all the time, even when windows weren’t open. The sheets felt dirty - there were a couple of stains, but other than that rooms were clean.

    My roommate got bed bugs the first night we were there. I felt so bad for her! We went to reception and they gave us tokens to wash our clothes and allowed us to move to another room. They also gave us a free drink & breakfast voucher. I think that they thought that would be the way to rectify the situation but, they really need to put protective sheets or something on these beds to prevent that. Also, the washers & dryers suck here. Only one dryer worked while one washer left my clothes soaked!
