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.
A perfect location & check in was simple. It was very clean, especially the shower areas. The staff were friendly and there was a relaxed atmosphere. Room was spacious enough (I stayed in a 4 bed mixed dorm) & faced away from the road, with a big window. However, the beds are child sized (my feet touched the bottom & I'm 5"4) and very creaky; terrible for good sleep. The building was extremely hot, making me feel ill. There was no space to use hairdryers or get ready & not many plugs around!
We stayed for just one night so didn't really experience much of the hostel, it was just a place to sleep for us - still pretty great though!
Great location & instructions easy to follow. Staff on reception pleasant enough but not particularly warm/welcoming & definitely not 'fun'. Room (27) fine but of 4 power sockets in 6-bed room, only 1 worked. Told reception & didn't seem bothered. Lack of sufficient lockers unacceptable: none in room & all taken in reception area. No hooks in wet room showers, so stuff got wet on the floor. Breakfast v good. Overall: functional but lacked character/fun, small, easily fixable things let it down.
Nice hostel located within a 5 minute walk of kings cross which was super convenient. Breakfast was good. Wifi only worked downstairs.
Basic hostel facilities, no frills...good location if you need to be close to Kings Cross and a short walk into the centre of London.
It would have been nice to have soya milk available for breakfast.
Good Hostel, one of the best that I know, I try to sleep always here, but this last time We had a problem with the room, I had a reservation for two nights and on Saturday night when I arrived to sleep there are people in my private room. Finally anything happened, but they gave me a good fright. So, if you think your things are safe in a private room... You are wrong
Really great place to stay. We are a group of six family members and stayed in an 18 room mixed dorm. We felt safe and all decided that Clink 261 had the most comfortable beds we have slept in during our three weeks travelling. Very helpful staff. Facilities clean. We would definately stay here again

The good: very close to the Euston station, easy to find. Shops, restaurants etc all on the doorstep. Staff are very friendly. Buffet breakfast. Don't need to take the sheets to reception at checkout :-). The bad: The girls' door a bit cramped - and no lockers (!!) which was a shocker, and no individual lights or powersockets. No nice 'extras' like giving you a free towel. All in all, a good hostel - but glad I only stayed the one night!
Great location. I only had one night as a layover and it was a 10 min walk from the train station. Clean and friendly. Nothing extra though, bring your own towel bc they charge
