It's a great location, close to King's Cross Station & an easy walk to Camden. The rooms [4 bed dorm] were quite small, and get very hot during the summer. It was clean, and felt secure [even though there are no lockers for bags, etc. in the rooms] The wi-fi wasn't accessible in rooms, which was annoying. The location is the main appeal of this hostel.
Very good hostel although the 4 bed dorm was quite small. Good free breakfast and really helpful and friendly staff.
I enjoyed my stay in Clink216. The common spaces are cosy and colorful: I love the living room with the big tv. However rooms are too small to fit so many beds: in my room there was not enought space to move and put the luggage. The breakfast is fair and the kitchen is well equipped, even if there is the lack of basic products as sugar and oil that are usually available for free in other hostels. The location is excellent, pretty close to a big metro and train station.
Normal place to stay for several days, but there is not so much space in the living room.
Loved staying here it was close to Kings Cross station to get to everything in London and it was small so not too crowded in the common room and breakfast which was also good. the bathrooms were clean and although the rooms were small we were only in there to sleep so it didn't worry us.
Beds are extremely short and uncomfortable, rooms smell terrible, common areas are average and its location isn't great. Don't stay here!! Worst hostel I have stayed in on my trip so far.. You also have to pay extra for everything including wifi!!!!!
The ladders on the bunk beds are a perfect example of when looks win out over functionality and practicality.. It's a really minor thing.. But just thought i'd mention it. Other than that, thumbs up.
good hostel. but the bunks beds posed quite a challenge. they had no handles and no proper stairs to climb up. also the rooms were too crowded.
Ok, so first of all the WiFi is 3pounds fro unlimited time and it comes and goes sometimes. I think a good hostel should have free WiFi these days. There are no lockers in the rooms but there are a small ones at the reception(you CAN fit a Laptop in there)so that's ok. At Clink261 there's not much atmosphere but there definitely is at Clink78, in the ClashBar. The rooms are ok, showers were very good and the zone is great too, being close to King's Cross and walking distance from British Museum.
Location good. ~7 minutes to Kings Cross station. Friendly staff. Cool pub opposite. Many plugs around the beds. in my room.
Staff were helpful in letting the early arrivals in our group deposit their luggage early. Friendly reception staff. No problems at all with check-in / check-out and no security deposit needed. Due to the location it was a bit noisy outside, especially as we needed to open the windows as it was so hot.
I really liked the rooms and the staff, however I thought that the bathrooms and especially the showers were pretty unhygienic... there was a lot of hair in them and even though I understood the ask to leave your shoes outside, there was a pretty big risk of getting some sort of fungus through that... otherwise I really loved my stay and the location of the hostel. Especially awesome was the fact that you guys had Nutella for breakfast though~ I would definitely come back :)

There were so many kids running around making noise! The common room isn't really set up to be social either, not recommended for those solo travelers on the go.
The room was to small for 6 beds. The internet was poor.
The rooms are quite small compared to the number of people staying in them. I stayed in a 6-bed dorm, which really wasn't big enough to fit six people. There is barely room to move, even less so when you leave your suitcases there. But other than that, the hostel offers good value for money.
Small room, lack of bathrooms, 1 per floor... 0% atmosphere but a real good location.
Fantastic location next to kings cross. But saying that you get a continental breakfast is pushing it. You have some bread to toast and some cheap orange juice.
I stayed in a 4 bed dorm. The rooms are tiny, hot and stuffy with nowhere in the room to keep your bags so it had to be locked in a storage room downstairs and every time i needed something i glad to walk down 2 flights if stairs. Any valuables have to be locked in insanely tiny lockers downstairs. I got fit walking stairs! Invest in exhaust fans in the bathrooms!!! You have a shower, step out into small cramped hot bathroom and now require another shower! At least most of the staff were nice.

It was a short walk from king's cross st pancras, so very accessible on public transport. There were no lockers in the rooms and wifi was not included which is unusual in this day and age. Otherwise the breakfast was good and it was generally clean.
Pretty poor hostel. They cram you in like sardines into the dorms and many of the staff are unapproachable. The location is fine, just near Kings Cross tube station.
