Located above a pub just south of the Thames, the Walrus Waterloo hostel offers a ready-made social life on your doorstep. If you don’t fancy a night out, just pop downstairs for a few drinks – plus, they offer a free breakfast, self-catering facilities and free bed linen. Staying south of the river Thames means you’ll experience a different part of London from the normal tourist trail. Nearby South Bank attractions include the British Film Institute, the Royal Festival Hall and the Hayward art gallery. London Bridge is a short walk away, too.
