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.

Great hostel, convenient to all forms of transport, be it rail or foot powered. The bar itself is quaint, exactly what you'd expect. Trent took us on a walking tour of the area, which was fascinating! The history of Leake Street in its macabre uniquely London way, with brilliant recommendations for nearby sights a little off the main path. Definitely would stay here again if I'm ever back this way, 10/10.

The hostel itself was fine, and it had a good location in terms of the city but it was right next to the train lines which squealed at all times of the day.
