In December 2014 our fresh little womBaby peeled out of it’s egg. Although it’s neither little with over 500 beds, nor do marsupials or buildings peal themselves out of eggs… Anyways the important thing is: It’s in London!
Finally wombat’s made it to one of the top 5 landing destinations for Europe visiters and what a great destination it is. London is a buzzing capital and runs at it’s own speed. The new wombat’s CITY HOSTEL London is located near the Tower of London in East London.
The area is full of things young London visitors need. The markets, bars and restaurants of Bricklane are just a few minute’s walk away and so are the bars at St. Katherine’s Docks. Also Shoreditch, London’s hippest area in terms of night life and vintage design shopping is just 20 minutes up the road.
The building itself used to be a hostel for sailors since the early 1860’s and was actually opened by the Prince of Wales Albert Edward. A plague in the terrace entrance still reminds us of that historic moment.
The whole building refurbished and with all the know-how of wombat’s founders Marcus and Sascha brought in, the house is now probably the best youth hostel and place to stay for young travelers in the UK’s capital.
