Property Description

wombat’s CITY HOSTELS - LONDON is definitely the place to stay if you want to fully enjoy London. 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.
wombat’s CITY HOSTELS is proud to be one of the most experienced hostel chains (20 years of hostel knowledge!) and a background of award winning houses located all over Europe: Berlin, Budapest, London, Munich, Venice and Vienna.

wombat’s CITY HOSTELS offers safe, clean, quality accommodations. Spacious dorm rooms with ensuite bathroom and individual lockers in dorms for personal belongings.

Included
+ bedding
+ fast WIFI in the entire building

Cleanliness is not something to take for granted in many other hostels, but we do take this seriously: we have won the 'cleanest hostel worldwide' award multiple times.

    Everything you want on a hostel, Friendly, very clean, very secure and very comfortable. Location is slightly out of the city which I like but easily accessible by foot. Lockers in the rooms were great, very secure. Beds were very comfortable and the room is spacious. Shower is great and the below ground kitchen and onsite bar are a treat. Very happy with my wombats experience.

    Amazing place for solo travellers! My room (8person) had its own shower and bathroom. Both were cleaned daily! Also downstairs is an amazing atmosphere to meet people! Easy to make new friends and lose track of time.

    Fabulous

    Stayed in a 6 bed dorm. Plenty of space, secure and clean. Beds are comfortable but make a lot of noise when you’re moving around. Shower and toilet are in the room - which is good but there’s no communal facilities on the floor if someone is using the one in your room. Not a deal breaker, just means getting ready in the morning is a bit slower. Good location for walking and close enough to a tube station.

    Nice hostel with a lively bar and decent staff. Good location. Security would be a concern, the lockers in the room would not lock for anyone and room keys require you to hand over an ID which is then stored in an open shelf where public and all staff have visibility and access.

    As many reviewers have noted the staff was anything but hospitable. The laundry facilities were not working (specifically the dryer) and after notifying the front desk they claimed I was lieing. I asked for a refund and they said because I did not request a refund the day before that I could not be refunded, yet I advised them of the problem immediately. Both elevators were also broken. The breakfast was sub-par. This wombats is not nearly the caliber of the Vienna location.

    Stayed here in Oct. Perfectly adequate hostel nothing special. Atmosphere is dead , I stayed here In a weekend of Oct 19 where the hostel was actually sold out. Staff are nice enough but not the most outgoing , drinks at the bar are far too expensive. Overall I'd give this place a solid 6/10 , I have stated at other Wombat locations and the social side of the hostel as always been much better dissapointed by the London one.
