    The location is great - London Eye, Big Ben, but also pubs, restaurants, and groceries. I could never get hot water in the shower - I feel that a hostel should be able to provide enough hot water for everyone to shower. I rate the location as less-than-perfect because of the overground right outside my window (on the 4th floor) screeching all day - starting early in the morning and ending late at night. Not much the Walrus can do about this, but be warned - bring earplugs.

    Great location, and a nice pub downstairs. I ended up extending my stay from two to four nights, so I had to switch rooms a couple of times, but the staff was helpful. Simple but nice breakfast.

    The best part of the hostel was its prime location in London. It is only a bridge away from Westminster and East London, the places I was most interested in seeing. There's a bar area downstairs for breakfast and a small kitchen upstairs. The bar gets busy at night so unfortunately, if you want a quiet place to lounge, it doesn't quite exist here in the evenings. Overall though, it was a great value for the cost and I definitely recommend it if you're on a budget.

    The hostel was in an excellent location not far from Waterloo station and from other touristic sights. Unfortunately the room was hot and there was no AC, room was noisy as it was next to train station, and the showers were too small to accommodate an avg size individual. Hostel lobby has a cool pub for drinks. Unfortunately the breakfast offered in pub was not as great as the drinks.
