Hostelworld says:

The Walrus Hostel is in one of the most central locations in London, just a short walk from the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament and Waterloo train and tube station. As one Hostelworld guest said, 'the location is superb for exploring London (you can see the Eye from outside it!)'. This hostel offers a free breakfast, free Wi-Fi and more. We like their ground-floor pub, the perfect spot to have a drink with the locals.

    Hostel is in a great location, don't think it can be better really like 2 minute walk to London eye, Big Ben, Parliament. Right between 2 Tube stations. Staff super friendly. Good free breakfast. Full Kitchen. Nice bar down stairs that lots of locals drink at, so a great place to meet locals. Was my 4th stay here well defiantly come back a 5th time.

    the staff are really friendly and were happy to answer any questions you have. they had a nice bar but they don't serve food. its fine since they are places nearby to have you meals. walking distance from the popular sights. the only issue some people might not like is that you can hear the trains and vehicles go past at night so its a little noisy when youre trying to sleep. and the showers at my level were under maintenance so i had to go to the next level which can mean long waiting times.
