Buen sevicio, atencion, pero el baño se encontraba medio malo, boraba agua y nunca lo arreglaron, la ducha dejaba el baño todo mojado por ser todo uno, en la habitacion faltaba un perchero o algo para colgar las chaquetas, no habia donde dejar las cosas dentro de ella, ya que la pequeña repisa que se encontraba en el costado solo alcanzaba para poner un pR de botellas y los celulares. Era poco iluminada y los enchufes para la electricidad de los 4, dos se encontraban malos.

El hostal es bueno, sin embargo, la habitación que nos dieron no era de lo mejor, quizas por que estaban algo llenos al momento. Por otro lado el personal muy amable y el desayuno gratis es muy bueno, el ambiente también es agradable.

I thought the hostel was great i don't usually stay in hostels but 10 minute walk not even that from king cross its a bargain. My only downside of this hostel is that the lift didn't work i suffer from vertigo so i can't get to the second floor and the staff put me on top floor, but they upgraded my room for free. The staff were really lovely/friendly, room was ace for the price. I would go back if i went to London again.

Me encanto el lugar! La buena onda del staff y la ubicación muy buena cerca de la estacion king's cross, donde tienes el metro y el tren. La limpieza bien, la organizacion muy buena.

The staff was really nice and although we had booked two beds in an 8 bed dorm we got a private room. Lucky girls :) The location near King's Cross Station was really good for us. The only thing we did not like so much were the toilets and showers.

The only issue I had was with the rooms. They were cold and a little damp. Otherwise, it's a nice place

No big lockers for backpacks on the rooms, the heater did not work properly and the window was partly broken, apart from that I had a good stay

Female dorm of 8. You had your beds allocated for you. Each bed has a small security box where you can keep a few items/papers (bring a lock). Shower and toilets were clean. Overall nothing special. SImple.

They were so nice to us! We were supposed to be in a room with 8 people but they weren't very busy so they upgraded us to a 4 person dorm. :) Location was great! Easy to get on the underground and bus. Only complaint. No WiFi in rooms. You have to go to the main lobby to use it.

My first experience of hostelling in London, and I was very impressed with the facilities, value for money and friendly staff at Clink 78. I hope to come back and visit in the future!

Very dirty in room and toilet

This place is really only suitable for 18-20s looking to party, otherwise, don't count on sleeping.

Les dortoirs pour 8 sont trop petits, nous sommes les uns sur les autres. Il n'y a absolument rien pour ranger ses affaires dans les chambres, les valises sont à la vue et à la disposition de tous. Il y avait une odeur épouvantable dans notre dortoir tout au long du séjour. On ne capte la wifi que dans la cuisine commune mais pas dans le dortoir. En revanche, l'auberge est sympa, bien située, on a pu laisser nos valises sans problème, la cuisine et le bar sont des endroits conviviaux !

The staff very friendly and helpful. The room too small, too dark, too cramped. There are no lockers in the rooms.

Everywhere was clean and tidy, however, my room was very cramped and smelt strongly of damp (maybe needs some better ventilation), but I've stayed in worse. About 10 minutes from Kings Cross and had a fairly standard free breakfast in the morning.

Didn't stay for long, as we got in late, however the staff were very and the wife was good. Unfortunately doesn't reach the rooms. Cool place, converted jail with original furniture. Great location. Reasonable price for London around NYE (stayed on the 29th). Would come back.

NON consigliamo questo ostello, la camera era veramente piccola, sembrava di essere in carcere, sporco, una puzza terrificante, bagno piccolo, gabinetto rotto, tirando lo sciacquone usciva tutta l'acqua, allagando bagno + doccia, che era divisa solo da una terribile tenda. per non parlare dei letti, tutti attaccati, separati solo da una lastra di compensato. gli armadietto non ci sono stati dati. lo sportello per prelevare i soldi non andava con tutte le carte, e il personale era inadeguato.
