This is the sister hostel to the Walrus Hostel, which is about 100 metres away and already has good reviews on TripAdvisor. Both are very central in London, within easy walking distance of Waterloo Station and the Houses of Parliament. The Horse & Stables opened officially in January 2014, but there were a couple of “soft openings” before that. I stayed over Christmas & New Year. It has fabulous new electric showers, so there is no danger of running out of hot water in the middle of your shower, as in some London hostels! The toilets are also new. The beds have memory foam mattresses and are very comfortable. Lambeth North tube station is across the road. Like the Walrus, this hostel has a bar downstairs with a great atmosphere; the differences are that the Walrus does not cook food, but has a kitchen so that you can; whereas the Horse & Stables does not have a kitchen, but the bar serves good quality hot food. I recommend the chicken pie. The staff are fabulously helpful and always seem to be happy. A great place to stay.
