I stayed at the Walrus with my friend when we were in London. We stayed in a four bed shared female room with two other girls. I have no complaints. It was very basic but that's all we needed - who spends time sleeping anyways? We were in London to go out!
It was my first experience ever in a shared room and it was fine. The only thing I would say is to get up early and get a spot in line for the bathrooms - there was a little bit of a long wait, but no big deal. The price was definitely right at this hostel. The staff (i forget their names - two guys) were very helpful letting us print off our boarding passes and whatever else we needed to print. The breakfast was basic but good (I had toast and orange juice). The hostel is close to a train station but I never heard a single train sound. It is also close to the metro. I would stay here again if i was travelling to London on a budget.
PS - if you want hotel quality, stay in a hotel! If you want a good hostel on a budget, stay here.
