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!

Liked: Best thing about the Walrus is its location and Carrie and Dave the Manager (a veritable fount of local and general knowledge and great humor). My daughters and I stayed in the 16 bed mixed dorm and it was very comfortable. We were fortunate to be located against the wall with the windows which kept us out of the walkway to the bathroom and made sleeping easier. Supermarket just around the corner and the hostel had good kitchen so we could save money and make/pack own food.

Liubov Borisova

23 November 2009 Liubov would recommend this property

Liked: The staff is extremely nice, they were really caring! Breakfast basic, but present and mostly everything you need. Really nice bar just downstairs. Depending on the room though, you might have noise from the trains... which was a bit annoying. Besides, the 'un-suite' room has only shower, no toilett... Very strange. But overall, I had a very good experience!
