The hostel is decent and in a perfect location. Quite clean and peaceful with a nice atmosphere. The breakfast was pretty much what you get in most hostels so no complains there. The staff were really helpful and cool.I however thought the girl at the reception in the afternoon was rather slow. She explained that it had something to do with the internet not working and possibly related to The wifi being down whole time I was there. If they could fix this then it would be a 100% for the hostel
The hostel was ok. Huge, in an ok area of London, but conveniently located near King's Cross. The biggest issue was that one of the guys in our 8 person dorm smelled TERRIBLE. Not entirely the hostel's fault, but it made sleeping there incredibly unpleasant, and I would hope that the hostel would do a better job of screening the people that are staying there, but since it's so huge I don't think they really track who's there We got unlucky with the guy in the room, otherwise its just ok.
Could do more for breakfast.

lovely staffs , tidy environment , easy air kitchen and TV room. hope the boss will never change all the staffs there, keep them and give them more wage. they are worthy it.
Good location with great public transport links, but the rooms were so cramped and tiny you could hardly move around, and there wasn't really a comfortable common room area to hang out, check email, etc. But it's London, so maybe that's inevitable. For female travelers: the 10 person all-women dorm is actually MUCH roomier and more sociable than the 4 person all-women room. I thought I'd appreciate the quiet and a little more privacy, but I wish I'd stayed in the larger room the whole time.
A convenient place to crash if you're just zipping through London, though they certainly seemed to offer more. Friendly staff, good location, and a nice atmosphere make it a fairly pleasant place to stay.
Great location near Kings Cross. Very convenient to get around London with all the underground lines there. Hostel was very well equipped. Staff were really helpful and hostel was always clean. I've stayed in several other hostels in London on previous visits (including the main Clink hostel) and I definitely preferred this one. Hopefully will be back!
This hostel is in a really good location, just a short walk to kings cross station! Hostel is clean with nice showers. Only downside is no lockers in room, only tiny one on the main floor by reception, which were often all full. My stuff felt safe in the room though. Good breakfast and common room as well. But no wifi in the rooms :(
Great staff and great location. Facilities were in need of an update but was perfect for getting to King Cross St Pancras early in the morning.
Fine. Good location, clean and safe. Also, the Clink hostels (both of them) are much improved now they offer free wifi. I slightly prefer this Clink hostel to Clink 78 because it's quieter with fewer school groups.
I didn't expect that use of computers in lounge zone will be extra charged (there's no information about that, and in another hostels it's for free). There's no place in the room (4 mixed dorm) to store the luggage, so you have to left it downstairs which isn't comfortable at all, and every time you need something you have to bother the staff to get you the key. When I checked in the lady on desk didn't explain me anything about the place (where are facilities etc.). And the beds are too short.
Nice price and position!!...bed very small!
Enjoyed our stay with yourselves the only thing is it would of been nice to be told that a lady was sharing our room with us was just a bit of a shock to return being 5 guys to find a lady but it wasnt a problem overall enjoyable stay

I have chosen this hostel because of the proximity to King's Cross station which is excellent. The bathroom on the top floor was a mess. Wet floor, no light when using the toilet and the droop preventing me from proper cleaning my face.
Rooms quite small, my 6 bed dorm was packed with beds, a basin and that's it, no place to put your stuff other than in the others' way. It was so hot one could barely sleep but too much noise on the street to open the window. Only one bed with a light switch and plug socket. Very simple breakfast. Atmosphere reminded me of a submarine. However, it was clean everywhere, helpful staff and good WiFi. I can definitely deny the staff's opinion the quality is typical for London, even for the low price
I felt like I was another tourist in 200 more tourist. The beds were really noisy every time we were moving just a little there were big noises. We were so many in the room that it was impossible not to be awake by the people who were coming in. Would not recommend except for the location. If there is nothing else.
Great, nice and clean
Room was pretty cramped
I didnt like this place. I stayed on a 4 bad bedrom and it was really tiny. The toilets facilities just average. Good location and common areas. Breadfast included.
