Hostelworld says

If you?re looking for a spot that?s as central as possible, then Walrus is going to be hard to beat. It?s just a short walk from popular tourist attractions such as the London Eye, Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey, making it an ideal location to explore the city from. But it?s not just a great location the hostel offers, it also provides guests with free WiFi and plenty more. There?s also a pub on the ground floor offering affordable drinks where you can meet fellow travellers and locals alike.

one of the best place to stay in very central London. 5 minutes walk to London Eye, across the bridge from Big Ben. Very quiet. Use shower early morning to avoid ques. Not a big problem though. Lovely place. Safe for all tourists.

pros: location was amazing, was able to walk everywhere or use public transportation easily. cheap and filling breakfast. staff was kind and easy going. cons: only one charging unit for a whole room of 6. was a hassle just to charge your device and it being across the room. the hostel could definitely use a deep clean, so much black mold throughout the bathrooms and things were just dingy. also would be nice to have more social or common areas when the bar and kitchen are closed.
