“Normal Hostel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2010

The Walrus is a decent hostel in central London. The bedding is clean which is important. The mattresses are comfortable. The trains are not as loud as you might think being right next to Waterloo station. I had no difficulty sleeping. The bathrooms need a little work, showers are a bit mouldy, curtain needs changing. But the staff is excellent, super helpful and really relaxed. Nice bar below the hostel too.

Stayed November 2010, travelled solo
