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.

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!
