The staff were excellent and very helpful. The location of the hostel above a bar made it very easy to socialise and provided a fantastic environment- and the bar discount didn't hurt either! Nearly everything was perfect- the only problem I found was the showers, as on the fourth floor the shower was quite weak and cold, and the floor became slippery after use (could perhaps be avoided with shower booths instead of a bathroom).
The Walrus was a great hostel! It was our first experience staying at a hostel and the Walrus made it amazing! we felt very safe and we had a lot of fun meeting people at the bar downstairs. The staff was incredible! They were so friendly and super helpful and they made us feel very welcome and we had a great time thanks to many of their suggestions! One of the crew members, Francisco, was really funny and also very helpful. I would definitely stay here again when i come back to London!
I love the Walrus! From the first impression to the last impression, this hostel is Top. Free towels, friendly staff, clean facilities, central location, and a fantastic bar/lounge area makes this one of the best hostels I've stayed at. My only complaint was that it was a little loud in my room since the hostel is right next to some train tracks-- earplugs solve the problem though. :) Thanks for a great stay!
