Cheery and competent staff ,and very cool laid back atmosphere. Concerned that there appeared to be no recycling facilities, this is really important aspect of 21st century business, come on guys help save a seriously struggling planet and spread the word about environmental care and positive social action.

An okay hostel with good facilities and location. The rooms were very cold, there was no chance to hang out in the room because it was freezing.. I catched a cold right away. The ladies-only showers and toilets were great, but the showers had major holes on the floor which was awful! Also the noise was loud every single night so I was glad to have a room in the most quiet area of the building. I recommend the girls' deluce rooms but there is a lot of improving to do, really..

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.

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.
