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.

The was good a great atmosphere, with live music at night, but not until late. The only thing, I can complain about. Is that I got up at 7:00am and there was no place to drink a cup of water everything was closed. A worker working at the kitchen would not open the door when I knocked on the kitchen door. I just wanted to ask her for a cup of water. Later on one of the hostel workers told me that I could drink from the tap. I would appreciate if the hostel worker in the kitchen opened the door

Nice cosy bar area, I felt safe in the hostel and the rooms. However the toilets were cramped and there were no mirrors in the bathroom. Friendly and helpful staff

Perfectly fine as a hostel if you're a heavy sleeper. Location is a good central area, but it's right next to train tracks. Thankfully, I was waking up early anyways, but it's almost impossible to sleep after 7am once the trains start running (they do provide earplugs though). Perhaps I had set my expectations too high after past hostels, but there was significantly less hostel-programming and activities offered, making it less social than other hostels I've been to. Good for the price though.
