Property Description

Wombat’s City Hostel London opened in December 2014 and definitely sets a new standard for hostels in the UK's capital. Only minutes away from sights such as the Tower Bridge, the Tower of London and the City Hall, it's an easy walk from the buzzing nightlife of Shoreditch and next to Wilton's Music Hall; the location is just awesome for young travellers.

Not only is the location awesome, the building itself is breath-taking. Formerly a seaman's hostel, the building was converted to an astonishing traveller’s place. Featuring a huge Bar, a courtyard, a cosy hangout area in the lobby and all amenities a backpacker could wish for.

Whether you just stop in London for a couple of ales, you're a party animal and want to paint the town or you're planning an extended sightseeing and shopping trip; the new wombat's is the place to stay. All our rooms come with comfy wooden beds, private shower, toilet facilities and lockers for your belongings. You'll get a set of bed linen, a small welcome drink, Wi-Fi as well as our self-made city map with all essential information about the going-ons in town.

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.

    Located right at the centre wombats is like the best place to be at. If youre a bagpacker, nothing like it. Just few mins walk from the tower bridge makes it reallly accessible. The bar in the basement is cool. Good vibes

    The location is great if you want to do things near the bridges, but quite far away from a lot of other sights. Otherwise, awesome environment and clean facilities!

    Very clean, with nice large bathroom and an additional sink in the room which was convenient. Good sized lockers, firm mattress, but flat pillows. Good security in the building and close to multiple tube stations but the immediate surrounding area does seem a little unsafe and there is currently a lot of ongoing construction, including on the hostel building itself.

    The hostel is really nice and clean. The only problem i had was that at night it was really hot inside the room, i felt like i was in a Sauna. There is no ventilation system in the hostel and no fans were available (all of them were already picked) so they should have enough fans for everyone or provide a big one for the room during hot days.

    Everything was wonderful other than the dryers not working properly twice in a row so I had to pack wet clothes. Bar area is really nice and fun! Definitely recommend other than the dryer issue

    Nice place. I bit loud with the train right outside. Not too many people at the bar when I went down. Otherwise a very nice hostel. I would return.

    The room I was staying in was not well ventilated and would get really hot and stuffy, but there was a roof window that could be opened as shown by one of their kind staff members. Other than that I had a pleasant stay and would recommend staying here if you are travelling on a budget.

    Very Good

    11 Jul 2019
    Mixed thoughts about my stay at Wombats. Pros: conveniently located really close to Tower Bridge and the tube. Rooms and bathrooms were spacious and clean, kitchen and its free pasta came in handy! Cons: I found the staff very unwelcoming and unfriendly. Rude and abrupt, didn’t show me where to go for the rooms when I checked in and generally a gruff manner. Also very noisy (from the traffic and train) and very warm at night. As such, cancelled my second stay with them for this trip.
