Hostelworld says

Wombat's City Hostel London, located close to Tower Bridge, seamlessly blends historical charm with modern comforts, ensuring an unforgettable experience at the heart of the vibrant metropolis! Wander the cobblestone streets of the nearby Tower of London, where centuries of royal intrigue and storied pasts await to be uncovered. Explore the vibrant neighborhoods of Shoreditch and Brick Lane, renowned for their street art and bustling markets. At this great hostel, you can enjoy amenities such as ensuite rooms, a delicious breakfast buffet, a lovely coffee at the WomCAFÉ as well as the lively WomBAR with endless parties.

Property Description

A safe haven in the middle of the metropolis: We took a traditional brick building with roots dating back to the 1800s and set a new standard for hostel life in the UK.
What was once sailors' accommodation is now a hostel that caters for all the needs of the modern traveller. With great attention to detail, we have created a hostel in London that celebrates the heritage of our historic building.
The old oak that once formed part of sturdy ships and churches is now immortalised in our furnishings throughout the house. The beers you drink here will be served on a bar made from 500 year old wood!

Our Wombat's City Hostel is located in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, right next to the famous Tower Bridge and Tower of London, charming markets, authentic pubs and many other places of historical interest.
A short walk will take you to trendy Shoreditch with its vibrant street art, the lively nightlife of Hoxton Square and Old Street and finally Brick Lane, which has become one of the most popular spots.
All other London attractions are easily accessible by public transport: Aldgate East and Tower Bridge underground and DLR stations are just a stone's throw away.

After a long and exciting day in London, our hostel awaits you with a cosy courtyard, a spacious lobby with our own Wombat's Cafe (exclusive Wombat's Roast included) and womBAR. Here you can relax and enjoy our always unexpected offers.
All rooms are equipped with en-suite bathroom and private lockers.

Overall was a great stay! The location was decent with only a few minute walk to metro! The staff and environment was very welcoming! The cleanliness of the rooms was borderline. Nothing to complain about but also nothing to ride home about! I was hoping for a little bit more of a modern feel in the rooms (as depicted In pictures). Very safe and secure (needing hotel keys to even get into building). Would not mind to stay again!
