It was a nice place to stay; super good location, nice staff, and good breakfast in the morning.
I stayed in a 4 bunk dorm room. My main criticism is that the space was WAY too small for four people - we literally could not all stand up at the same time, and when it came time to check out, we all had to take turns to move our suitcases into the hallway (it was not possible to open up a suitcase in the room) in order to pack. Also, the bed was too short, even for small person (I could not stretch out) and the top bunk too low (bottom bunk could not sit up.

Only stayed there one night. The rooms were tight but each bed had a power outlet and a reading light which was a bonus. Close walking distance to Kings Cross St Pancras station.
staffs staffs staffs. excellent. easy relax air . very clean and tidy, thanks for the staffs. they must do the job , wow, do not know how many times a day. very tidy. the kitchen is convenient with fridge, cooker and very easy air TV room. clink 261 is much better than its another branch .
Quite good hostel very well located in central London. There is a large kitchen and a nice common area. Breakfast is OK. It might need a bit more showers though.
The location is great - very close to King's Cross and Soho. The staff was very nice and the breakfast was okay, too.This was still one of worst hostels I've been too so far. Everything is really old/used and cheap. And one toilet for the whole floor with 5 or 6 dorm rooms is not enough. I'd go to another floor to use the toilet,... oh wait, on the third floor there is no bathroom for men at all. The beds are not for tall people.I'm 1.89m and the bed was too short for me.
Wow, I was positively surprised when we came in. The location is great and it's easy to find. The kitchen is big enough and beds are confy. I was first worried how I can sleep in such a big dorm but it wasn't a problem. There's enough privacy for everyone and our room was quiet.
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.
Great location near to Kings Cross and very good value for money especially with breakfast included. Only negative is that the room got very hot at night and if you had the window open, the road noise was very loud.
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.
