Clink was great! Really fun vibes plus a bar downstairs with very very inexpensive drinks! Great location a few minutes away from Kings Cross Station. Free breakfast too! Only downside is that the WiFi wasn't free.

Clean facilities, friendly staff, cheap price! Perfect! It was, however, loud in the hallways at night!

Had a good night at Clink78. Staff was very friendly. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast had a decent variety. Close to Kings Cross Station so getting around was easy. I would stay here again for sure!

Small rooms, friendly and helpfull staff. Toilets and bathroom were frequently cleaned as was the zink in our room. Breakfast with cereal and toast. Would choose to stay again if in London.

It's a very good hostel to spend a few nights, good breakfast, clean showers, very small rooms. You have your own plug in each bed which is quite conveniant, but only wifi in common areas (it costs 3 pounds). The attention at reception was the worst I've never had, like they were making an efforce not to help you, but well, it's a very big hostel and you can manage to find everything on your own. 5 blocks from St Pacras and many transport connections.

At midnight there were people running up and down the corridor banging all doors and shouting. This lasted for 10-15 minutes. Then at 44-5a.m. 2 boys in my dorm thought it was fun to shout and wake me up! Around 9ish the fire alarm goes off. After 3-4 minutes the anoucement said it was a false alarm!

- Dorms DIRTY!! Hair and chewing gum glued on walls... - Heaters off though we spent one night on November! 15 degrees inside the dorms no more. We asked at the reception where someone told us that is was impossible to switch them on now!! They just tried to move us in 2 other unheated dorms... -Not safe : One of the 2 big windows could be open easily from the street outside though we were on the ground floor.. -1 toilet and 3 showers for 4 dorms of 6-8 peoples each ???

The hostel has a good location, the atmosphere is good, the breakfast is simple but good enough! The problem is just the reception staff. Definetly not friendly! A good hostel with bad staff thatºs not nice! I just have to say good things about the cleaners staff. They are nice!

Really great location and great staff! Only dislike is that the rooms pick up every noise made in the hostel. Converted courthouse so really cool atmosphere and TV/Internet rooms are great to chill and meet people. Loved Karaoke night!!!

I don't recommend this hostel at all. The air in a dormitory room I stayed at was too bad.

Very expensive for what it was. Pipes in the wall vibrated every time somebody went to the toilet. Hard to sleep as you could hear everybody in the stairwell coming home late.

Hi there, thank you for leaving us a review and staying with us. The rate for that night was £12 which is cheap for London hostel. Clink Team.

Smallest rooms and worst showers I've had during 7months backpacking Europe. Had to pay for very slow wifi. Feels more like hotel than hostel, wouldn't advise for solo travelers. However included breakfast is good and has a good bar and common area.

Breafast is excellent though I didn't have time to have it as had to check out 10am. The internet wifi pricey for one night at £3 just for few mins use when I arrived at 1am. Though the staff were very nice when I checked out and returned the luggage key on Thursday morning the man at reception was rude and arrogant asking why I kept the key, I was too shocked to get this treatment as a guest, not happened any other place before and made up my mind not to stay here another night.

Hi there, thank you for your review. Sorry you felt the staff rude when you returned the luggage room key, we ask the guest to return the key after they put luggage to monitor the luggage room and how many guest using it and also we have signs inside the luggage room asking guest to return it straight away. If you forgot or weren't told, it is not a big deal. I hope you change your mind and choose to stay with us again. Clink Team.

Just stayed there for a night but was honestly surprised. Its a massive hostel, so be aware of that but its clean, reasonable roomsizes, water boiler plus tea and coffee in the room and proper showers. What else do you want as a backpacker?

OK hostel. Staff made snide comments about guests (I've stayed here before and they did it then too) and hostel is frequented by school groups.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi there, Thank you for leaving us a review. We do have College or university groups sometimes on down period (not school, we have a minimum age limit). However we have more backpackers/travellers always. It's just that sometimes that groups will be more visible. Hope to see you again. Clink Team.
