More zones with wifi. One toilet in the first floor sometimes do not work, or take a lot of time to be filled of water so we can not flush it.

Beds are comfortable enough, staff are friendly, and the canteen is very adequate. But the toilets could use some upgrading, needs more hooks, place to put toiletries, etc.

The bedroom was disgusting, very smelly, dirty, overcrowded with luggages, mugs, pants all over the places. People of the bedroom have been there for a long time and thought it was their private room.The street is noisy. The last day I couldn't take a shower because water was cold. They shoudln't charge so much. The internet is also expensive.

I stayed in 12 mix dormed and I got the upper bed. It was very difficult to get to my bed and the stairs made my feet so painful.

Absolutely fantastic hostel. Bar staff are real fun and take song request. Meet some life long friends here. Super cool layout and all you can drink coffee in the morning. Clean and walking distance from Fabric nightclub

Big hostel so there's always a lot of people in the common areas, great to meet other travelers. The staff was amazing, very helpful with everything, but the dorms were REALLY small, almost had no space to walk because of the luggage, no lockers in the rooms, hangers or tables and the showers had this annoying button you had to push every 10 seconds or so to get the water and you couldn't regulate the temperature. Good location, close to King's Cross and ok breakfast.

Really liked my stay at clink78. Had a good vibe and plenty of common areas. Also liked that there were partitions between the beds. Only dislike is lack of hanging/place to put my clothes in the showers.

Very friendly staff.Nothing to complain.A friend and I booked 2 beds in 16 shared bedroom ,3 hours before our arrival but when we got there we found out that someone else booked a bed in that room in the same time, so the girl at the reception who was very nice, placed us in a 10 shared bedroom for the same price.

Not a bad hostel, huge kitchen/common area. I slept with my bag on my bed cause there was nowhere to store your stuff. Also the WiFi didn't reach my room which was really annoying, and only 2 plugs for a room of 10. Staff were wonderful though!

This was my first hostel experience and I was surprised I enjoyed it as much as I did. I would recommend Clink and I did end up talking about it a lot. The complimentary breakfast was awesome every morning. The rooms were clean. The beds had dividers so you wouldn't have to see the person next to you and you could somewhat shield yourself from the light. Great location too! Right in front of bus stop.

I stayed for 3 nights at Clink78 and i ghad a good experience. The atmosphere is awesome and its a very nice place to stay. They have a breakfast and was good too. The staff is great and very helpfull. Tha bathroom is not perfect, sometimes smells pee, so a chose another one. Its close for StPancreas and thats its amazing, you can go everywhere. Its 15min walking from British Museum. I had a nice days staying there.

The hostel is very close to the underground so it's easy to get around. Beds have security lockers which is good however the lights didn't work. Breakfast was free but basic which was fine. Overall good place to stay and would recommend

Clink78 was a great first hostel experience for me! Great value, pretty inexpensive but pretty clean, with comfortable beds and a fun party atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and helpful, always more than happy to answer any questions I might have. Fast online customer service, too! Easy walking distant from major tube station and relatively close to the Thames River, which is a beautiful place to wander. I would definitely recommend this hostel to a friend!

I spent only one night but I would recommend it, especially to young guys: colors everywhere, big kitchen, big bar, big and nice wood-panelled lounge room with security guy always present. Definitely a great vibe. Nice rooms, average cleanliness, no lockers and no wi-fi in the rooms. Minutes away from Kings Cross but still in a quiet area.

The room was quite small and stuffy, with quite a bit of trash on the floor. Adding some lockers to the rooms to help not only with security but with organization and ease of cleaning would be highly recommended. Putting up curtains in the room would also be a great improvement, as there was a terrible street lamp shining immediately outside our window. Free breakfast was nice, but meagre. Adding some yogurt or peanut butter as a source of protein would be great.

Hi there Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We have free lockers outside the rooms that you can use as if we put them in the rooms it would make them cramped. We are happy you enjoyed the free breakfast and hope to see you again! Happy travels, Jacqui
