      Near the towerbridge and London tower. 8mins walk to metro station. It's a great hostel to meet people as the bar is huge and lively. Rooms are clean and spacious as well. Storage is also sufficient. Staff are great.

      Never thought I'd say this but I'm really impressed from the design of the whole premise to the facilities to the ever reliable staff and the wonderful guests who stay here. Initially chose this because it's cheaper than other accommodations in London but I'm really amazed that my stay here turned out to be one of the best experiences in my travelling life. Keep up the good work especially the fun nights at Wombar! Woooh!

      Value for money stay in the middle of London”

      Travel here for holiday in London city for 5 days. To summarise: Pros: - Affordable stay in the middle of city (8-10 minutes walk to Tower Bridge) - Huge room (despite staying in 8 mixed dorm) - Friendly and informative staff. Cons: - Reception can be crowded during peak time therefore plan your check-in/out time properly. - Limited breakfast selection (if you are late for breakfast- 9.30am onwards, food like eggs and fruits will run out and they will not top up. Advisable to go for breakfast early.) - Nearest train station is 10 minutes by walking.

      Bedroom and bathroom are big and clean. The kitchen and bar facilities are great. The only con is that there is one working lift instead of 2, and on some days both of them don’t work. So good luck if your room is on 9th floor. Overall I would say it is a nice stay :)

      Best hostel”

      I love this place and book here often. Ensuite rooms, even though shared with the others in the room makes it a much nicer hostel experience. It's always clean, staff friendly and good value. It's so close to central London. Don't forget your free drink voucher when you check in. I've had a squeaky bed some times, but if you report it to the front desk team they get someone to tighten everything back up again. Nothing is too much trouble.

      Great hostle with great staff. It is big, but one does not feel lost. Rooms are nice. Lockers, chip cards and limited entrance to the seperate hallways make everything save. Love the breakfast and bar area in the basement. Food is really good.

      Wombats City Hostel is a well located little hostel near the centre of London. It’s well located only a 10 minute walk from the station or a 20 minute walk to the Tower of London. I stayed in a 8 person dormitory which was clean and had modern facilities. I did appreciate that the storage locker as well as an ensuite bathroom were all part of the same room. The hostel also had a bar which provided good vibes at night for chilling and talking with other travellers. I spent most of my time in London out and used the hostel only as a place to sleep with the occasional conversation with a fellow Aussie. Would not hesitate to recommend this hostel to other people wishing to stay in London on a budget for a few nights.

      This is the best hostel i've ever stayed. I stayed here for 5 days, they provided free towel, adator to hire (deposit 5 pound). Breakfast costs 4.5 pound which was good breakfast. The room was very spacious. It was so good that there was the restroom in each room and you don't have to share with all people in hostel, only your roomate. The road to hostel was nice path so that you can carry your luggage easily. There was Sainbury supermarket before the hostel, even it was not near much but it was still convenient. In conclusion, i would definitely stay this hostel again if i go to london again.

      arrived in London after crossing the channel from Amsterdam so imagine how tired we were. We took the tube to the station and was disheartened that it was still a bit of a walk. we got a private room. room is clean and big with basic ikea furnishings. bathroom is big. They offer breakfast for about 4pounds each and its ok. fruits, juices, coffee, cereals and bread. They have a laundry room but people tend to leave their clothes in the washers way past the timer.

      I felt like staying in Wombats was like staying in a reasonably nice hotel, but you share your room with other people, as the bathroom is like that of a nice hotel. The place is very clean, staff friendly, the bar downstairs was a great place to socialise, and the hostel is in a prime location to see the sights of London. If I were to stay in a hostel in London again, this would be where I would stay
