It was decent. Nothing special but I don't have any huge complaints.
Excellent location and amazing value for money. The staff were super friendly and helpful. While the building was a bit run down, everything was super clean. Really good kitchen/lounge facilities and there was a free breakfast. It was really noisy though (sound traveled) so bring earplugs! The rooms are very small, but they have individual lights and electric sockets/USB ports which was great! Only two lockers in my 4-bed room, which was strange. Would recommend.
Easy walking distance from Euston (and even closer to St Pancras station), friendly and helpful staff, nice bed and a good breakfast included. Although there is a safe available at reception I prefer lockers in rooms, though the hostel is very secure otherwise. The only downside was two noisy people in the room in the early hours of the morning.
Great location and nice kitchen (lacking normal size pots for boiling water). Sadly the rooms, the washrooms (especialy the showers) and the kitchen were not really clean (would need to be check other times than just the morning). Clink 261 is a place were LOTS of people live for 1-2 months, all searching for a job, so it's a weird atmosphere, and there stuff is all over the place in the rooms and in the kitchen (they forgetmto be respectful of others). In a 10 bed dorm, just 5 lockers... weird
Great accomodities: a fully equiped kitchen, a comfortable common room, WiFi reception everywhere (at least in the common areas and the rooms on the main floor), 24h reception, luggage room. I'd recommend staying there if you arrive from St. Pancras or King's Cross, and you spend a whole day in London after checking out: you can leave your luggage there and easily get them back when it's time to leave!
Good location, close to Kings Cross tube station. Friends staff and clean facilities, however things are pretty squished in the hostel (not a lot of room in the bathrooms or bedrooms for your stuff). Other than that all around good hostel experience.
my 3rd time here, just for emergency stay. I arrived at midnight moving on from KX the next day. Otherwise I wouldnt use this place. Its pricy and the room (nr. 35) was just horrible. Stuffy, smelly and humid. The condensed water from humidity stuck to the ceiling and kept dropping onto my bed and panel above my head where I put my phone. The phone stopped working completely and one side of the bed was damp with water. The location is very convenient, though, mattress also great (no springs).
Good wifi, but a bit annoying having to go to the common areas, nice and clean, great breakfast, would stay here again :)
The girls dorm room was the smallest room I have ever been in. The location is very loud near a busy street. Ground floor lobby where one can check email is very cold. Downstairs by the breakfast seemed nicer. Good value but difficult conditions.
If you ask me how did I experience my stay, then I have only few sentence, other than throwing me out early hours of the morning roaming to find another place to rest my head, I feel abandoned after my brother search and found Click Hostel to be quite suitable and travelled long journey I expect to rest peacefully, however never would I return again after your security took no time to resolve the incident and why I was refuse to stay. totally appalling and very sad indeed.

I liked my stayed but it was less than i expected. First the staff its not really nice and they always have a grumpy face, specially a bold guy at night. The bathrooms are really unconfortable. I stayed in the 18 ppl room and there were only 3 lockers. The wifi was good. I really dont recomend the 18 ppl room, it smell really bad and they have fungus in the ceiling. the location is good right next to kings cross.
The bathrooms are poorly keept, some toilets don't work and others don't have papers. We stayed in a 4 bed room, and it's really small and we had to keep the window open all the time since there were no other way of getting air in. Not so nice since the window was facing the street. Not really worth the extra money to get a room with few beds.
Apart from the location, this hostel was one of the most uncomfortable experiences I have ever had. The large dormitory was really cold at night, and the bed was very uncomfortable, meaning I had hardly any sleep during the night. The staff service was rather slow. Would not want to stay here ever again.
Comfortable stay. Good location.
The location of the hostel is excellent, next to train and buss station where you can go to the main touristic places very easily. The hostel is close to many good places to eat too. The staff was very kind and helpful and the atmosphere in the rooms was very peaceful.

Storage lockers need to be fixed. There were only three in the 18 bed room and all are bent out of shape and could not be closed to put a lock on. There was also one that I tried in the front reception room that was broken. (It should not be too expensive to put a couple of storage lockers underneath the bunk beds for each guest.)
just your average hostel, good for a sleepover when you travel from KX the next day. My internet signal was dodgy with drop-outs No special atmosphere here, their sister hostel Clink 78 is better in this sense...
Great location, near King's X... 24/7 reception, helpfull staff ;)
The best ive ever stayed in IN london i wil be back
Overall, I had a good experience at this hostel. It was close to St. Pancras Kings Cross, and surrounded by good restaurants. Breakfast was good, and the place was very clean; the towel rental and washing machine were fair. There were quite a few rude staff, and after getting a neck-ache from the bad pillow, I asked for another one and got a rude response. I was lucky that I got a luggage cage though; there were only five for a room of ten, but it made me feel safer about my luggage.
