Property Description

The Walrus Hostel is the ideal choice for you to get the most out of your trip to London. We aim to welcome you, assist you and keep you safe so you can enjoy all the marvels of this historic city. Our hostel features Free Wi-Fi, simple free breakfast of cereals, toast, teas and coffee free bag storage on early arrival, guest kitchen.

We are not serving breakfast and our Kitchen is temporarily closed due to Covid-19 restrictions. We are really sorry for the inconvenience :(

The Walrus is within walking distance of all of Londons most famous landmarks and after a long day of sightseeing, you can come and enjoy a drink in our traditional English pub where we serve a fine selection of beers, wines and spirits. View House Rules


With its on-site traditional pub (stocked with English real ales) and a Union Jack flag, The Walrus Hostel has a proper Cool Britannia feel – so it's just the spot for getting a taste of London. You'll have free Wi-Fi for planning your routes to the sights, or grab one of our free city maps if your overseas data plan's pricey. There's a free breakfast, including fresh orange juice and Marmite – a British classic – to keep you going till lunchtime, and a kitchen for whipping up dinner with your new travel buddies.


We're in a really central location about a 10-minute walk from Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey. You can stroll to London Waterloo station in 6 minutes to catch a train or underground to check out Oxford Street's shops. Waterloo is also where you'll arrive if you're taking the train from Gatwick Airport – just change at Clapham Junction and you'll be here in less than an hour. We've also got bike hire if you fancy cycling along the Thames – the riverfront is 5 minutes away.

Rooms and Dorms

There are mixed and female-only dorms, with linen included and towels for hire. You'll have your own security locker to pop your backpack in, and there are shared bathrooms with hot showers on every floor. There's also a private room if you prefer to have your own space.

Extras and activities

You can borrow an adaptor from the bar for a deposit if you've forgotten to pack yours, and pick up a novel from the book exchange for downtime. Ask staff for extras like earplugs as well – great if you need a nap after a late night making the most of our happy hour or themed drink nights (did someone say Mojito Mondays?). To keep your passport secure, we've got a safe manned by the staff. There's a luggage room for stashing your suitcase after check-out, too.

    Overall this hostel was a great place to stay. The beds were cleaned and changed for every person and the floors and rooms were also cleaned daily. They had a free breakfast every morning and extremely helpful staff! Someone in our reservation did have their credit cards stolen while asleep at the hostel, but that can be accredited to both her lack of knowing her surroundings and just someone else in the room with this intent. They do have lockers in the room, just make sure to bring a PADLOCK!

    I really loved this hostel. The staff were so kind and it’s in amazing location. Although it is pretty loud (it’s right next to the train tracks) the hostel offers free earbuds and lots of other free things like use of locks for lockers, hair dryers, storage, and printing. The breakfast was nice to have every morning and it’s right across the street from a grocery store.

    Walrus Hostel was perfect for a stay in central london. Great place and amazing value for money. Clean place and friendly staff. The only reason why I gave it few stars for location was that it was near a train line so was noisy, but for the price, and otherwise perfect location it was definitely worth staying . Thanks to the staff

    This hostel was well located- close to Waterloo subway station and quite close to the London Eye and Westminister. Nice restaurants around the area. The hostel is ok. They serve a good breakfast. The train passes right beside the windows so if you are a person that has never slept with noise before, be prepared for that. While I was there, a few people got their belongings stolen so it's best to leave your valuable items with the staff at the front. No common area except for the bar downstairs.
