Everything you need in a hostel. Has big common area and a bar to get drunk if you dont want to go to london/ have time Only things that i found me were showers that reminded me of auschwitch (b-floor) with concrete walls and no place to leave clothes or towel during showering. Location is kinda bad if you want to see city center. I was in london only for one night stopping by so it was ok. Kings cross is quite near and you got few groceriestores around the neighbourhood
All round, a very nice hostel! Very good value for money, not to far away from central London (only a short walk from major Rail and Tube stations). It has a very good atmosphere, and good facilities. Would definitely recommend!
Location was great. Right by Kings Cross Station. Really enjoyed our stay. The only complaint I had was the bathrooms could have been cleaner. Other than that though I would deffinitly recommend Clink. Neat atmosphere.
: very clean, location, prices, big bar, breakfast -: small rooms, staff no welcoming,
A great hostel to stay at in London. Great athmosphere and setup, the staff of Klink is very helpful and genuine. Would recommend to anyone that wishes to stay in a vibrant environment.
Great atmosphere! Lots of energy and young people floating about. Really easy to meet people. The location is not central to London life. However, it is close to King's Cross Station which makes it easy to get around via tube, bus, or train.
A very cool place to stay! Our only complaint was that the breakfast area is so small for the quantity of people staying there. It was a nice breakfast though. Probably not much they can do about the size of space, but maybe organizing the materials a bit more would be handy. It was packed! Other than that, a great spot to stay. Not too far of a walk from the Tube/Train station. We walked to downtown and it was a good way to see a lot.
Fun place, not bad for the money. Rooms where a bit small and the 4 showers sharing one drain was a bit strange. I would stay there again.
I stayed in a 12 bed dorm which was clean and light however there were no lockers for a bag. Just a small over bed space for passports and personal items.. apart from that it is a great place
I loved this hostel! There is a great vibe as soon as you enter the reception. Staff was friendly and very helpful, included breakfast was nice (even the accompanying music was great). The room was small, but I only consider that a problem, if you plan on spending your entire trip in there.
Wifi very poor in the room
very efficient staff, good atmospher, good description of how to find the hostel, walking distance from a metro station.
Hostel was good for what I needed it for, an early morning trip to Kings Cross. However spent a few days in London and it was a trek to anything. The front desk staff were wonderful, but the bar staff I found incredibly rude. Was just a very busy hostel, and didn't quite feel like what they were hyping it up to be. Would have been better if the rooms hadn't been so expensive (booked in advance as well). Probably wouldn't stay here again, but wouldn't tell people not to.
I think Clink 78 has awesome vibes and a great atmosphere. The staff are very friendly more the most part. The clash bar is a great way to meet people and have a good time. Only thing I was not impressed with was watching the way the "bouncer" , I guess you would you would call him, treated people. Very rude. Other than that I had an awesome time.
This was a good hostel overall. The breakfast was really good, it was decently clean, and the staff were helpful. The beds were a little uncomfortable but the bed curtains were really nice and added a little extra privacy.
This was my second time staying at Clink (last year at 261) in London. I enjoyed this location; the building is awesome, and it is a quick walk to St. Pancras and King's Cross.
The hostel is pretty good, the only problem for me was the size of the room. In the pictures they look bigger and when you get there is kind of a surprise how small they are. I stayed in a room for 6 people and if someone wanted to open their luggage all the short space to move in the bedroom was gone! Another thing is the number of toillets. During the morning was quite difficult to find a empty one!

We had an amazing time at Clink, best hostel so far. Really clean rooms and kitchen, super friendly staff, and free breakfast. Definitely recommend!
Cool people!! Fun place!! Could use a cleaner feel in general, but it wasn't that dirty. Maybe just a freshness or something. Maybe try and add something creative to the hallway. Thanks for everything!

I now know what's it like to sleep in a coffin. The bar was great - even with the countless people on a tour. Great location if you're entering/leaving from platform 9 and 3/4.
