Marie Bernier

18 August 2009 Marie would recommend this property

Liked: The Walrus is a small Hostel very well located. There is a nightbus that stops a few minutes of walk from the place. There are also two subway stations close...and it is at five minutes of walk from the BigBen.But what made our journey so much pleasant was David, who works at the hotel. He was really friendly and helpful and he gave us some tips about the city. Since it's a small Hostel, you get to know the other people wich is good thing. When we were there, they were working to add some rooms and bathrooms, so we know it will improve. But with our experience, we do not have anything negative to say. THANK YOU DAVID.The 3 quebecers

Paul Keng Teoh

17 August 2009 Paul Keng would recommend this property

Liked: Perfect location to explore London. Minutes away from the river bank, London Eye. A nice stroll to the Tate Modern and Globe Theatre. A 15-20 minutes walk to Westminster, Big Ben, Trafalgar Sq. You've got two tube stations within 2 minutes walk (Waterloo and Lamberth North) (Northern , Bakerloo, Jubilee underground lines). You couldn't be any closer to a London pub with just less than 50 steps from your bedroom door. Fabulous staff who are really helpful.

Matthias Kschammer

10 August 2009 Matthias would recommend this property

Liked: Place to rock with very cool and helpful staff! But loud and a little dirty, so nothing for little princesses. The rooms are on top of a cool pub and while I was staying they had a small concert in the garden with the singer of the band "the feeling" and you could also meet Sophie Ellis Bextor sitting in the garden. The showers are under construction and not very clean. The dorms are clean but you hear a lot of street noise. I would recomment this place if you are in London to party and are not gonna sleep a lot anyway since the location is perfect. If you mind getting a good sleep and having a nice bathroom, then better stay somewhere else.

09 August 2009 Premysl would recommend this property

Liked: Well, I finished there my UK trip 2009. It was good hostel, pretty clean, wifi. The furniture wasn't old, but still there were big problems. There's no dining room, so everything you cook you also have to eat in the kitchen or room. And the other problem, ot's really near a railwaybridge, so it's not so easy to sleep there... But you'll get used to it.

Liked: The Walrus is an amazing time; whether you are there for the night or for the month, whether you are traveling alone or with loads of friends. Between the location, staff, and building itself it is impossible to not enojoy London. If you don't have a good stay here then there is something wrong with YOU.

Liked: Although there was a lot of noice because of the trains from Waterloo Station, I slept very wel! (maybe it is a good idea to wear earplugs? I didn't use theme, but some other people did)It is a good hostel with a great location! You can walk to the centre of london. The owner of the hostel was very friendly, as were the rest of the people we met there.Although the hostel is almost on the trainnetwork of Waterloo Station which makes it very noisy,

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.

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
