After opening hostels in Vienna, Munich, Berlin and Budapest, LONDON is now a WomCity too!

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.
