We had a great stay! Friendly and informative straff, quick and easy to check in. The 4 bed female dorm room was clean and cosy, the only bad thing was that it became very stuffy and hot during the night with 4 people in such a small room and only being able to open the window a tiny bit. Also; only two storage boxes for 4 people isn't great. Loved the fact that the bathrooms and showers were so many and so clean. Overall a fantastic stay!

Dear guest, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave your comments, and for appreciating cleanliness and staff, I am delighted to know you enjoy your stay with us.Regarding the room, in your next visit, I would recommend you to book a private room, they are spacious and for sure you will feel more comfortable there. As well, in case none of the lockers in the room are available, you always can use for free the ones located in our reception area. Enjoy your future travels! Sérgio

WORST WIFI CONNECTION EVER.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Dear guest, Thank you for leaving us your comments. I’m sorry to read you were not able to enjoy the WIFI connection. The Free WIFI sometimes because of a large amount of people using it can slow down, but if this happens, drop by reception and we will restart the router to increase the speed of the connection. As well, I am glad to let you know that we are working on improving the internet connection in order to spread it to the whole building. Have a nice day Regards, Sergio

King's Cross has easy access to almost any part of the city. The reception staff is great. Breakfast is alright. Wi-Fi worked for us almost anywhere. Rooms are very small, (which is not a problem by itself, but it gets very hot) and the street is very noisy (and you need to have the window open because of the heat). Excellent for its value.

This is the fourth or fifth time I have stayed at Clink261 and as always it was a really pleasant experience. Clink261 is always clean and its refreshing to see cleaning staff working right though the day, the receptionist checking me in was wonderfully polite and pleasant. The room I stayed in was a little small for 6 beds, however, since I'd actually paid for an 18 bed room, I'm certainly not complaining. Thanks for the pleasant stay Clink, I'll be returning again!

Excellent location just few minutes walk from King's Cross station. Few eateries and groceries stores nearby which is handy. Bed is comfortable, only issue was bathroom cubicle was the smallest I've ever used, and it has no ventilation. Else, things are generally good here. Cheers!

You can't beat the location which is excellent, but the hostel itself is small, dark and hot. I think I would rather stay somewhere less prime location and have a little more space!

Dear guest, Thank you very much for leaving a review and for appreciating the excellent location of the hostel. I am surprised to read you found the hostel small and dark, as our common areas are quite spacious and warmly decorated. About the heat, this summer we had some very hot days, which we all loved, but this can make rooms warmer. Next time, don’t hesitate and just drop by reception where you can lend a fan. Enjoy your future travels! Sérgio

The flush was broken on Both toilets in bathroom on my level. Some move hooks/shelves/stool in the showers would make it a lot easier! Was tricky getting dress and undressed with only one hook!

Anyway, we will definitely take into consideration your proposal to put hooks that you might find on your next stay! Enjoy your future travels. Kind regards, Federica

Great location, walking distance from Kings Cross and Euston station. The staff was very helpful. I stayed in an 18 person dorm which was a little cramped. The toilets and showers were clean, but poorly ventilated so they got pretty warm. The kitchen facilities were very nice, but are not allowed to be used until 12:00. Take advantage of the walking tour!

Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, and for appreciating location and staff.I am sorry to read you found the 18 bed dormitory a little cramped, for your next stay I would recommend you to book a smaller one where for sure you will be more comfortable. About the kitchen, it is closed during a couple of hours in the morning in order to allow our amazing housekeeping team to clean it and have this ready for you to use the rest of the day Have a good day!

Far better than any other London hostel I've stayed in before. I stayed in a 10 bed dorm which had powerpoint and individual lights above each bed, which I heard some of the bigger dorm rooms did not. There were also large lockers under each bunk, although only one per bunk bed. I never had to wait to use a shower even in typically busy times. Although the internet was a bit patchy in the rooms, it worked fine in reception and the lounge. I would certainly stay here again.

My favorite part about this hostel was that guests are allowed to keep their luggage in a storage room even after checking out of their room. Also, there are lockers (but you need your own padlock!) in the lobby to store valuable items. Located nearby King's Cross Station, it saved me a lot of trouble since I brought a lot of luggage. Breakfast was average and my roommates were loud at night, but I would definitely stay there again!

I am happy to read you also had a good stay with us, but regarding the noise, did you report this to Reception?! Next time, don´t be shy and talk to us :) I hope to see you in Clink back soon. Enjoy your future travels. Kind regards, Federica

Good hostel. Friendly staff and clean rooms and bathrooms. Only one locker for two beds in the room. One locker for every bed would be handier.

My girlfriend and I stayed in a 4 bunk shared room for two nights. The room was very clean and they even comped us with free towels. The staff are exceptionally helpful and gave us a good walking route to see places of the city they won't cover in a tour. We also did the free walking tour through the hostel which was great fun and takes you through most of the sites you typically see in London. The only downside to this hostel was the rooms are really tiny!

This hostel is great, this is the second time I've stayed here. The only downside about security is there is only one locker between one bunk, so if you're the second to arrive you'll have to leave your luggage out of the locker. But there are small lockers in reception for passports/ wallets etc if you bring your own lock. Hostel was clean, provided breakfast was decent and standard. Would stay here again, very close to kings cross station so it's very easy to get around to all the sights!

So warm in that place! I have no idea why.

Dear guest, Thanks a lot for your feedback and for taking the time to leave a review! This summer has had some really great sunny and warm days which I know we all love. This can make things warmer inside. Next time just drop by reception and we can lend you a fan. Enjoy your future travels! Sérgio

Comfy bed, lovely showers, great location! No bar and it's hard to meet people there.

Dear guest, Thanks for your positive vibes and feedback with regards to facilities and the location of the hostel! On your next stay, I would suggest to drop in in our sister hostel Clink78 (it is just 5 minutes’ walk from our location!), in which you can find our awesome ClashBAR and meet plenty of people  Hope to see you with us in the near future!
