  • Nothing to complain. It is next to King s cross, quite cheap, clean, and the staff is really helpful and friendly. It is just TOO big, if you are alone its difficult to meet new people because there is just too many! It's a labyrinth! But anyway, good hostel! And great FREE breakfast

  • The location was great and the staff was very nice and helpful, especially Ivan. I loved staying at Clink 78 and would stay there again. The only "bad" thing was that I had items stolen. My suggestion would be to NEVER leave anything unattended, lock your suitcases and use the provided lockers. I felt really comfortable there and let my guard down but should have been more cautious. Overall, it was an excellent experience and I will recommend it to my friends.

  • Good Nice breakfast, cleaning room, cool staff, security. Bad Too much noise in the morning. I couldn't sleep very well because of Clash Bar.

  • Had we arrived at Josrf Fritzls? Was it a fitting room? Or maybe a a prison-cell. I've backpacked the world but never stayed in such a small room. And it had no window, just a small air-outlet. Claustrophobia maximus! Me and my friend hated it. Combined with an nasty smell and really dirty toilets I would NOT recommend this hostel to anyone. And you could not bring alcohol to your room. Not even if you bought gifts to be brought back home. London has amazing hostels, this is not one of them.

  • This was the most expensive hostel we stayed at, with the smallest living space

  • Had a very nice stay at the Clink Hostel. Located a ten minute walk away from King's Cross Station, good breakfast. Would recommend it.

  • Good location and plenty of handy facilities (tourist shop in the hostel), only problem was that we couldn't get wifi in the room.

  • Great staff! Amazing location. People staying here were awesome. The breakfasts was just white toast and some juices but I guess that's just a European thing. Wifi worked in our room. Showers and bathrooms were extreemly clean. I will def be coming back in the future!

  • This was a great turn out. And Depending on how many people you're rooming with, it can be a great place to stay. The bathrooms were taken care of, as were the showers. Must use a key card to get into the building and also the rest of the hostel (safety). Free unlimited breakfast. Laundry room. Incredibly nice staff. Great place to meet people if you're on your own like me. 10 minute walk to kings cross (impossible not to use tube in London). Will stay again.
