    Great location and near Tube and DLR/TFL lines

    Hostel is in Great location and near Tube “Tower Hill” and DLR/TFL lines “Tower gateway”. Many restaurants/bars around along with grocery store. Short 8 min walk to transportation and the Tower OF London site and Tower Bridge you can cross over to other aide of the Thames. At night the views are also spectacular. The rooms are secure and clean. The room has lockers for each person /bed and locks with your own designated key card. The rooms shower/toilet are organized in compartment separately so one can use toilet whilst another showers. Plenty of toilet paper provided in rooms. The have events at night in their bar area. Also provides secure lockers for storage.

    Good value stop over in central london

    The staff always friendly and willing to help whenever possible. Kichen facilities great and bar good size and friendly. Just 2 minor let downs, both lifts out of order for 2 / 3 days, no fun when on 4th floor. Bed very noisy and creaking when turning in the night. But would stay again, great WiFi too.

    Excellent Hostel with Excellent Facilities

    Another good stay at Wombat's!! All the staff are extremely helpful & welcoming. The whole place is really clean & comfortable and the downstairs kitchen in particular is large enough for the overall size of the hostel. Furthermore the bar area is just really cool place to hangout!! I stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm: as well as the (hotel quality) en suite bathroom (with shower & sink) and the separate toilet there was also an additional sink in the room - so no having to wait to brush your teeth in the morning whilst someone else is having a shower!! The cooler weather also helped with a really good night's sleep.

    Great Hostel but too hot!!

    really good hostel but my stay was completely ruined by the heat!! no aircon & no air flow especially in the new dorms on the 5th floor. only small fans available for small amount of relief!! Unfortunately I am currently staying here over the Aug bank holiday & it is even hotter!!!!!

    Really cool & friendly place with excellent rooms

    A hidden gem - once more people find out about Wombat's it will be difficult to get a booking here - all dorms have separate en suite toilet & showers. Their security is very good (have to swipe to get into actual hostel accommodation, then swipe to get onto your floor & then again to get into dorm) Also lockers are large enough for cabin bags or larger back packs. The self catering kitchen is really large. Finally the whole place has a really cool & friendly vibe about it!!

    전반적으로 만족한 숙소

    8인실 혼성이었지만 깔끔해서 좋았고 방 크기도 넓어서 마음에 들었음! 청결도나 시설도 정말 만족스러웠고 위치만 맞는다면 다음에도 이용하고 싶은 호스텔이었음 :)

    I really loved that place. It’s perfect if you just wanna a place to sleep but it’s also perfect if you wanna make friends. The place is very clean and the staff are friendly.

    I understood that the rooms were coed and was completely open to that; however, as a woman traveling alone, I was hoping to be placed with at least one woman for the company and to make the stay feel more relaxed and enjoyable.
