Hostelworld says:

Clink78 is a former courthouse, where Charles Dickens worked and the Clash were fined for shooting pigeons. Hostelworld guests have said this hostel offers 'great value for money and a really good atmosphere', 'impeccable cleanliness', a popular bar and 'very friendly and relaxed' staff. The 'clean and modern' rooms include privacy screens for the beds and individual reading lights as well as personal power points. Visitors say it's 'very close to Kings Cross station so we could get anywhere in London relatively quickly and easily'. We like the impressive stained-glass ceiling in reception.

Property Information:

Clink 78 is a stylish backpacker hostel which is oozing with character and history and is packed with friendly staff looking to make your stay an enjoyable one. Clink78 combines 200 years of history with a quirky and colourful interior and is located in the old Magistrates courthouse on Kings Cross Road. Clink78 is unique in its appearance and is in the perfect position to connect travelers to no less than six tube lines, the national rail network and the Euro Star to Europe.

We believe that Clink 78 has everything a backpacker needs all under one roof. Chillax in our TV courtroom, catch up on your world affairs in our internet courtroom or cook your self up a budget backpacker banquet in our self catering kitchen. We offer a mixture of private rooms and dorms, and most private rooms and some of the dorms have their own bathrooms. We also offer Girls Only dorms and Girls Deluxe dorms for even more luxury.

Freebies include:
A Continental breakfast
Bed linen
A Luggage room
A Towel for everyone who books into a female deluxe dorm or private rooms.
A London walking tour
A London map
Safety boxes

If excitements your thing then our small, but perfectly formed, travel shop can send you off on your very own London adventure. When you return, dust your pack off and head down to our famous basement Clashbar which brings you 7-nights-a-week of pure entertainment, fun and frivolity. It's great value and the perfect place for a recap on the days events. Feel free to wash them down with an ice cold beer or glass of wine :)

Please make sure you read our terms & conditions before booking.

See you soon!

    Very glad I only stayed one night. The facilities are very very rough, and the staff was rude and inconsiderate. Kind of feels like living in a colorfully painted prison. It's not especially conveniently located either.
