Polly Berry

12 February 2010 Polly would recommend this property

Liked: Had a fantastic stay. Dave was really helpful and friendly and the hostel was kept clean and tidy. It was nice to have a hostel with a kitchen and cheap food shops a few doors down the road. The location is as discribed and you can hear the trains slightly (not enough to stop me sleeping!) The london Eye, Trafalgar Square and Big Ben are all in easy walking distance. I will use the Walrus again when in London.

Dawn Dean

06 January 2010 Dawn would recommend this property

Liked: Located very near 24-hr shop for food/alcohol, ATM, and bus/train stops. Great to have a kitchen/fridge. Towels appreciated! Hot showers are on the 2nd floor ("3rd" for Americans), and the wonderfully spacious one behind the grey door were also well enjoyed. :) -- I was surprised to learn the "day room" would/could become a bedroom, but that's just one of the interesting bits of this pub's converted rooms!

Joe Zeiger

03 January 2010 Joe would recommend this property

Liked: A great place to meet people and have some fun. There is a bar on the ground floor. Breakfast is good and has a variety. As the other comments suggest, Dave is very helpful. Wear earplugs at night as the only drawback is the nearby trains which produce a tremendous amount of noise.

Disliked: Joe left no negative feedback.
