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.

The Walrus is within walking distance of all of Londons most famous landmarks and after a long day of sight seeing 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.

    The Walrus was the perfect stay for me. The staff are lovely and so accomodating to all questions and requests :) It is in a great location, great facilities and has great breakfast for free I might add! Definitely recommend! Will warn you though there are quite a few stairs; which I loved for the exercise haha but not everyone would love that so thought I'd mention it here.

    I stayed in the 22 bed-bedroom and beforehand was a bit scared it was gonna be very loud and noisy (especially in the night, as it was saturday evening) but that wasn’t the case at all! You hear the train and the sounds from outside a bit but you’re in central London so that is to be expected.

    Walrus had a great price for London and great location... sort of. Be warned that this hostel feels like it's on or inside or under waterloo station. The rooms were also hot (yes, in November) so the windows had to be open making it very loud. But with some earplugs and a beer from the bar downstairs I slept well. The bathroom setup is a bit weird but if you don't mind using another floor's shower at busy times it's fine. The super helpful staff made it all worth it, and also the free breakfast!

    Overall really good stay. Beds were comfortable and the location was amazing. Staff is super friendly. As many people comment on the train it’s not that bad as it does not run all night. May bother the light sleepers. Overall I would definitely stay again.

    Not a bad place, except for the fact that there are zero common spaces after dark. So once the downstairs (bar area) closes you have nowhere to sit if you need to.

    Very Good

    If you need a low-budget option in an excellent location, this hostel is perfect. However, the facilities could be a lot better and the staff could be a lot friendlier. But, the beds are clean, I felt safe as a solo female, and there is free breakfast from 8-10. There is a very loud train outside the hostel. I am not a light sleeper and I woke up at least 3 times each night.
