Extremely friendly staff, pub below has great beers and good prices.
Great location and easy to find. The cleanliness of our dorm (18 bed) was average although the bathroom was generally very clean. The staff were helpful. The room was loud due to the pub being right underneath. None of the lockers near us worked, as they either were broken or had previously been cut open and not repaired. Breakfast was good, with cereal, fruit and bread.
Awesome hostel.. Super kind staff, you may borrow many things like towels for free, decent breakfast.. Totally recommend it.
Though I'm not sure if there would be enough space in the room, lockers to hold bags in the large dormitory might be nice. I did appreciate the discount at the bar, and it was a nice place to hang out.
Great Hostel! Great staff and location (5 min. walk to waterloo station). Nice atmosphere as well (although average age was a little higher than normal)
Nice Hostel, nice stay, best staff i have ever seen in a hostel, very friendly and all that! The Hostel is nice, but i was missing in living room and a computer room, but u can borrow the hostels staff laptop so this was ok too! Would everybody who is looking wor a very secured stay recommend this hostel. I would go to that hostel every time again when i´m in London! Thank you for that awesome stay!
I stayed on 18 shared room and it was really croweded. But the toilet is clean, the staff is nice and its so close to Big Ben. The breakfast is great.
The staff at The Walrus was amazing; they were always available to offer tips about getting around the city and were all-around really friendly. If there are problems with your room, the staff are quick to help. The lack of electrical outlets near mirrors was odd, but thanks to jet lag I always woke up in time to get my favorite spot. This hostel is a great value for the cost, especially since it's walkable to multiple Tube stops and major tourist locations. Highly recommended!
The Walrus has a great, relaxed atmosphere and the bar is great, location-wise its close to everything. Rooms are a bit old and crowded and beds are lumpy but its all part of the charm.
The staff were excellent and very friendly and accommodating. I loved my stay in this hostel and felt very comfortable here. The bar on the first floor is awesome and a great way to meet people. This hostel is also very close to a metro stop which is very fortunate. Definitely would stay here again.
I felt like I was in something right out of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. The Walrus had a great atmosphere, was warm and cozy, and Alex, one of the workers was extremely helpful and welcoming, even offering me free breakfast upon arrival.
