Good 6.0
I walked to the Tower of London, could improve
The feeling of being “nickel and dimed” gets old. While the shower was modern, I would have appreciated a towel. For the price I should not have had to make my own bed. I liked the outlet and usb slots for charging. The staff was less than welcoming.

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.

Walk to the Tower of London and Tower Bridge!
Having to hire a towel is a bit much. I also don’t like having my identification held until checkout. The shower was large and modern. The bunks are unmade and the room was stifling if the window wasn’t open. Take your sleep mask and your earplugs! My fellow travelers were VERY noisy. I loved the short walk to the Underground and The Tower of London.

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.
