Excellent location right in the city! The kitchen was pretty small and pokey but the staff were absolutely gorgeous and the hostel had a nice chilled out vibe. Comfortable place for exploring London

Only, location was great else everything was a bad experience. For started there is no reception.Bar table is your reception and it's very awkward or comfortable to be check in between few drunk people around. The best thing about Hostel was Location just perfect. If I book it again then I book only ue to its prime location and price for that location

Had a great time at the walrus, a little upset over the confusion around opening hours in the pub downstairs over xmas - the guy running the place while the owner was away doesnt seem to like guests as much as the wonderful bar staff do. Only other gripe is a lack of rec room, other than that really enjoyed my stay - thanks Walrus for a great xmas stay!

The location is excellent and very convenient. Staff is very nice and willing to offer help to you. The room and toilet would be cleaned every day. It is worth a mention that there is a luggage room and lockers to store your personal belongings and properties such as laptops and cameras. Towels, adaptors, locks and the like are provided if you need. There is a convenient store nearby so you can buy food and cook by yourself. However, the wifi network is not very well and quite slow.

Most of the staff were okay but we had an altercation with a very condescending staff member. The WIFI DOES NOT WORK WELL. For most travelers free wifi is a must to not rack up intenational data charges. DONT ADVERTISE FREE WIFI IF YOURS RARELY WORKS.

Only stayed for one night so didn’t spend a lot of time there, but it seemed pretty good. The location was great, right next to Waterloo station or you can walk across the bridge and be in Trafalgar Square or Oxford Street after only a few kms. Loved the showers and how the bathrooms were a decent size. Negatives - the toilets didn’t have a sink so you had to wait till the shower room was free to wash hands, no hooks to hang towels/coats in bedroom, not much room to put bags in room. Good stay

I didn’t spend much time in the hostel, but when I did the other guests and the staff were very kind and helpful. Excellent location and value for money. Would come back.

If you stay here you're basically getting a great location, good staff and nice breakfast. The 22 person room is noisy. There are a lack of facilities if the number of people and that leads to the facilitates being dirty.
