17 April 2010 Helga would recommend this property

Liked: Great Staff, David is awesome and so helpful and kind. Cool bar downstairs with good staff. Friendly people staying there and was really easy to meet other travellers. Breakfast was fantastic. Showers were clean and actaully HOT and were not timed. Location is perfect for sightseeing. It is right on waterloo train station but if you simply close your window at night the trains wont bother you at all. Really had a great time at the Walrus and will definately be back soon!

Customer review

13 April 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It was very comfortable and relaxed. There was a kitchen to keep food and a common room to hang out in, and it was also right over a bar, which was really chill. The owners are awesome and were very helpful and were able to give great advice. The hostel was also in a conveniant location, within a 45 min walk from pretty much all tourist attractions and very close to tube and bus stops. my only complaint would be that the showers were a bit small and cold, but other than that it was awesome. I would definitely recommend it!

Alison Healy

05 April 2010 Alison would recommend this property

Liked: Dave, Tony, Nathan and Matt were all lovely and made my first week in London much more enjoyable. Beds were comfy and kitchen was handy. Must say though, the best thing was the location!! You can walk anywhere! A stone's throw from Big Ben and the London Eye.They were refurbishing the bar downstairs so i can't wait to come back and see the finished result. A great place to stay in London.

Liked: It was really close to the attractions' area, but that was the ONE and ONLY advantage! Dirty, small , no fresh air inside the rooms, no people available in the reception area in order to solve problems or answer questions! 30 Euros per a night is really too much for such a situation!

Liked: Dave was incredibly helpful and polite. Made us feel very welcome and that nothing was too much of a problem. Travelling with kids can be tiring but Dave made sure that the kids were happy ie kids tv in the morning. Location awesome close to most things, though close to traffic and trains- very quiet at night

Shelley Lowe

31 March 2010 Shelley would recommend this property

Liked: The staff were great. Very friendly and helpful. My husband and I unexpectedly had to stay an extra night due to a flight delay and they were booked up, but the guy who checked us in took pity on us and gave us his room and knocked 10 pounds of the price! It is in a decent location, well within walking distance of a lot of the sights. However, it feels a bit cramped. It is in an old building and there is just not a lot of extra space. The kitchen was terribly under equipped: no plates or cups and no sharp knives. And the kitchen was constantly dirty, but that could be more the fault of the other guests.

Disliked: Shelley left no negative feedback.
