You'll need a 2 gang 2 way.
On the first gang, you'll just use the one way of the switch for the living room light, on the second gang (the hallway) you'll use both ways of the switch so you can turn the hallway light on and off from either the living room light switch or the hallway switch.

The above is assuming the living room light is controlled by a single switch and the hallway light is controlled by two switches.
You can still use a 2 way switch as a single way switch just by not connecting L2 up.
