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, Free bed linen and a fully equipped guest kitchen.

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.

    The hotel has modern security, all the doors have locks with password. You can enter the hostel 24/7. They have an amazing electronic system. I stayed in a shared room alone, it was comfortable and clean. Enough. You can't leave anything in the room, so be prepared to carry your valuable things all day long. Bring a small lock for the locker and your bags! The location is perfect and so was the staff (Michal) . He was EXTREMELY kind and helpful! They don't have a lift. They have a Kitchen.

    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

    Even though their was noise from the trains it didn’t bother me when I slept. The kitchen was fully equipped and had everything you needed. Location was excellent, 5 minutes walk from the London eye and south bank area.

    Had a lovely time here and met great people despite covid. The kitchen was very clean and nice, has everything you need (even though I only used the microwave). It can be a LITTLE loud because of the trains outside but it generally didn’t bother me much at all. Only thing is theres no laundry facilities which sucks but theres a laundromat 10 minutes down the road so it wasn’t too terrible. Shout out to Michal for printing my documents for me because nowhere else was open!

    I had a good experience at this hostel. Michael was definitely great help during my stay! He answered all the questions i had, and was thoughtful enough to provide a couple of fans to use which were definitely needed in this London heat! The check-in instructions were easy to follow. I will definitely reconsider stying at the Walrus again if i ever visit London again in the future!
