Andrea Horn

05 August 2009 Andrea would recommend this property

Liked: The location of The Walrus is excellent! It's in a lively neighboughood and it's close to everything literally. At the end of the road there are the theaters Old and Young Vic, and the buses stop right in front of the door. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Our room (6-bed dorm ensuite) was cosy and the shower was clean. Yes, it's a bit noisy, but it didn't bothered us that much. I'd recommend it to everyone who looks for an accommodation for good price in the heart of good old London.

Customer review

28 July 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: + Very friendly and helpful staff+ Great location (stone's throw from the London Eye and Waterloo Station)- General cleanliness could be better. Particularly the kitchen and shower/toilet areas were a bit dodgy- Room next to train station meant lots of noise. Got used to it after the first night, though- Some toilets had no sinks; you had to commute between toilet and shower to wash your hands after a bathroom visit

Liked: Cheap for a hostel and great location. But it is close to a train bridge so if your not fussed about loud noises at night then it shouldn't be a problem.All in all was value for money and the facilities were standard and decent. Also the staff are very friendly and helpful, would stay again.

Liked: We had a great time, it's near Waterloo Station, the Big Ben, Londen Eye, etc. Within 5/10minutes with the underground you're at Picadilly Circus. The staff was very helpful and friendly. When I'm going back to London, I would definetely stay at the Walrus.

Liked: The staff is friendly and very helpful. Lots of bath rooms and toilets so there's no worry for have to Q up for a shower or "business" :P. The location is very near to the tube station and big ben tower, very nice indeed. However, there's a railway beside the hostel block, so would be quite noisy all day long. For those who cant stand for noisiness please bring along an ear plug with you. Overall, it's a nice hostel and will stay again.
