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.

29 December 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The only problems with this hostel is knowing where it is (you have to go into the Walrus pub then reception is upstairs) and that it's right next to the trains so its noisy. Otherwise, good hostel for the money.

Liked: I liked the location. The hostel is within a walking distance from the Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square and not far from Victoria Coach Station. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hostel is clean and room was warm in the winter. I also liked the fact that there is internet access and Wifi for guestswho have their own laptops.

12 December 2009 Gavin would recommend this property

Liked: The staff at the Walrus are fantastic, especially Dave, who always has great advice on where to go and things to do.The hostel has a great kitchen, with several supermarkets close by, helping the budget traveller. The price is great value for money, with all of London in walking distance and being very close to a Tube stop and the London Eye. We've stayed three times and would come back again and again.

Alana De Leon

10 December 2009 Alana would recommend this property

Liked: The Walrus Waterloo was a great experience! Although it doesn't have the "party" draw that some travelers may be looking for and isn't a huge/commercial hostel (which I think is GREAT), the hostel has a lot of character and the rooms are comfortable and kept warm in the winter. The kitchen, common rooms, and bathrooms met all necessary needs. The staff were INCREDIBLY helpful and very attentive. The facilities were cleaned daily and well maintained. Met some great people there and really great location, close to the London Eye and Big Ben (walking distance), a quick walk to Lambeth North stop on the Tube and a bus stop right outside the door made it easily accessible and convenient. The bar downstairs was extremely convenient and great to chill at for a pint or too. Generally a good atmosphere, the staff were more than willing to help you out, and David especially was just great! I would definitely recommend it to others and stay there again!

Disliked: Alana left no negative feedback.
