We had a great time at the walrus!! Upon arriving, the staff offered us free maps and made sure we were all prepared with the necessities(towels,converters,earplugs). Our room as on the 4th floor and there is no elevator. The free breakfast was simple but tasty. There's a discount on drinks for guests as well s the horse and stable just down the road. There we met Grant, who was super friendly and offered to take a few of us out before the Camden pub crawl,which was a blast! Definitely recommend

I only stayed one night in this hostel but my overall experience was a good one and the location cannot be beat! It is a 5minute walk from the Westminster bridge! The staff was wonderful, informative, and friendly and they took the time to call a taxi for me on the night I was leaving. I highly reccomend this host!

Excellent location, friendly staff, free towel rental. My only (minor) complaints were that the shower I used didn't have much hot water (though this was a 6:30am so maybe the boiler wasn't on yet), and the lockers were a bit small and flimsy. Overall, very good.

일단 변환어댑터, 수선, 자물쇠까지 빌려주고 조식 나옵니다. 직원 친절 및 서비스면과 위치면에서 아주 좋습니다. 단점은 시설이 좋지 않구요 콘센트 위치가 애매하고 공용 샤워실 및 화장실을 사용해야 합니다. 역주변이라 소음도 조금 있구요. 청결도도 조금 떨어지는듯, 그래도 가격 대비한다면 1~2박 정도는 머물러도 괜찮을 것 같습니다. Not bad!

Very good. Location was convenient. Being offered free earplugs was new for me. Would have liked a reading light in the bunk but at least there was a convenient mains outlet for bringing ones own light.

Staff was great and accommodating and even let me check in early. Atmosphere is great because of the bar downstairs where even locals visit- great for a solo travelers to meet others. Unfortunately, the hostel is a bit run down (for some this may just add to the hostel's charm) and isn't the cleanest. Also not enough showers on each floor. Quite far from London attractions and not the best surrounding area for places to eat, go out, safety etc. not a bad place but there are better for same price

Meine Freundin & ich haben den Aufenthalt im Hostel sehr genossen. Wir wurden freundlich empfangen & haben uns gut aufgehoben gefühlt. Die Mitarbeiter sind gut drauf, aufgeschlossen & sehr hilfsbereit, ebenso wie die Gäste dort. Wir sind schon am überlegen wann wir nächstes Jahr wieder kommen :)

Sehr nettes Hostel und freundliches Personal. Lage ideal für Sightseeing in London. Leider nachts etwas laut, da das Gleisvorfeld zum Bahnhof Waterloo direkt angrenzt

런던아이랑 빅밴에서 도보로 5분거리고 대부분의 거리를 걸어서 20분이내로 다닐수있어요^~^ 조식도 맛있고 직원분도 친절하심! 지하철소리때문에 시끄러운거빼고 런던에서 더 오래머물고 싶은 이유가 되었네요 밤에는 펍으로 사용하고 할인도 되서bb

Es un hotel con buena ubicación y no es nada caro considerando los precios por los que hay que pagar en Londres. Las instalaciones de los sanitarios necesitan una reparación urgente y no es muy comodo pues siempre esta lleno, sin embargo es una excelente opción. Lo recomiendo ampliamente

Great hostel to stay at for price and location, staff was very friendly and helpful. Downstairs bar was usually busy in case you are looking to meet people.

조식에 식빵 외에 다른 빵도 있었으면 좋았을것 같다. 과일이 바나나 같은 경우 한 사람이 두세개씩 가져가버리니까 일찍 갔는데도 동이 나 버려서 아쉬웠다.

Within 10 minutes walking to Westminster Abbey, London Eye, and 30 seconds from Lambeth North Stn. Amazing location, and even better people! The staff are very welcoming. You even get a discount on drinks, and free breakfast! Definitely worth staying here.

Durante nuestro hospedaje en el hostel nos dimos cuentas que es mas un bar que un hostel. Lo que uno siempre busca es la comodidad de las habitaciones para poder dormir luego de un largo dia de turista, y poder cocinar para poder ahorrar en ese sentido. Y no hay cocina porque lo que tienen es una caja de zapatos con horno, muy incomodo, imposible comer. La mujer recepcionista rubia (desconozco el nombre) muy mala onda, para nada servicial. Solo hablaba ingles poca buena predisposición.

Fiquei 7 dias com mais 2 amigos, o que pesou para a escolha foram os preços e a ótima localização. Ficamos numa suíte coletiva para 6 pessoas que tinha acabado de ser reformada, o que estranha um pouco é que o banheiro só tem chuveiro e uma pia,com privada rs só indo no coletivo do corredor.E recomendo pra quem for ficar nele não ir com muita bagagem porque são muitas escadas para chegar nos quartos.
