I had a great stay at the walrus last august. The staff were welcoming and the small but quirky bar below gave the place a wonderful atmosphere. While I managed to sleep through the trains which pass by metres from the bedroom window I did speak to some people who said the train situation seriously disrupted their sleep. Another minor, but mentionable issue is the weird shower situation. Some of the showers don't really function as showers should and are waaay too tiny! I couldn't even lock the door! I thought they were ornamental showers when I first arrived. Luckily there are a couple of descent showers with space to hang up your towel etc., you just need to search for them. Otherwise, I do recommend staying at the walrus hostel. For me personally, the welcoming, quirky vibes and great accessibility overrides the negative points.
