Liked: I liked the beds and the location was near tourists attractions. Too bad there's a busy train line next door (literally 0 meters) that makes a lot 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.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

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.

Gavin Coles

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!
