An unusual but inviting combination of bar, hostel and quirky decor greets visitors to The Walrus.

The charm of the place is in its mis-matched furniture, the poetry on the walls and the endless stream of  attractive foreign twenty-somethings who file in and out.

The laid back ethos of its owners - husband and wife Steven and Magdalena Chapman and Alexander Vicens - has added to the Walrus atmosphere of home-from-home.

It's fine to bring in food from outside to eat in the bar, and Alexander is known among guests as a guru of all local places to visit or shop.

The Walrus was also recently voted as having the best staff in European hostels by, and is well worth checking out for a drink or stay.
