Property Description

Clink261 is a comfortable, centrally located hostel just 5 minutes' walk from King's Cross Tube and St. Pancras International Station; London’s main transport hub. The hostel offers free Wi-Fi throughout the building and a great-value breakfast for £3.

Clink261 opened its doors 20 years ago. It's come a long way since then but it’s still got that laid-back feel that backpackers love. Staying at Clink261 feels a bit like coming home. With a self-catering kitchen, friendly staff and comfortable sofas, it’s a welcoming place to return to after a day of city exploration. The old Student Union building has been brought to life with unique British-themed interiors.  

Clink261 has shared dormitory style accommodation along with girls' only dorms and private rooms. All bunk beds have individual reading lights, a USB/electric port to charge up your devices and a locker (sizes vary from room to room, bring your own padlock). Towels are included in private rooms and available to others for a small fee.

Guests can chill out in the lounge area or cook something tasty in the well-equipped self-catering kitchen. They are also welcome to head to ClashBAR at nearby Clink78 (just 350m away) where there are DJ nights, live music, pool / table football and great drinks deals. 

Reception is open 24/7 and offers discounted tickets on tours and attractions. The friendly team will be happy to help with any questions.
King's Cross is a bustling and creative area of London. Famous gig venue 'Water Rats' is nearby, an open-air swimming pool is just the other side of King's Cross station (for the brave only!). 'Kerb' Street Food Market is held regularly in Granary Square. The British Museum and Camden Market are a 25-30 minutes’ walk away and all of London's big sights are easily reached on public transport. 
At just five minutes’ walk from King’s Cross Underground, Clink261’s location is hard to beat.

Please make sure to read the hostel's Terms & Conditions before booking.

● If you wish to cancel or amend your reservation and avoid full charges for your booking, please ensure you notify us by email as soon as possible and at least 48 hours prior your arrival date notice. Passed this time, I am afraid full charges will incur View House Rules

    Clink is a short walk to kings cross giving you access to all of London. Individual lockers, with clean facilities. Would 100% stay again next time I'm in London.

    Excellent location and good security. Stayed in a 10 bed dorm and it was very small, had terrible lighting and no air circulation. The beds were small and hard.

    This was my first time staying in a hostel and it was a pretty good first experience. The location is right next to King's Cross which is great since I took the train in to London. As well it is right by a tube stop so getting places is very simple. I stayed in all girls dorm and I was not worried about my belongings.

    Very strange vibe, but a good location. Everyone else in the room were 40 year old men that only stayed one night.

    Overall, this hostel did the trick and provided what we needed for a night. Not the cleanest, but warm, had great hot water, and ample locked space. The staff was nice and let us check our bags in a secure closet since we were there before our room was available to access. Rooms are TEENY TINY. You have to get ready one person at a time because the lockers slide out from under the bunks and take up half the available walking space. All in all would recommend.

    Good location within walking distance of King's Cross station, friendly and helpful staff. No real atmosphere though and overall not as clean as I'd like. Sufficient lockers are provided for a reasonable sized backpack. Plenty of locks on doors to keep the place safe.

    18인실 묵었음. 킹크로스 역이랑 가까운 건 좋음 화장실, 샤워실 인원대비 좁음 주방 있는 건 좋음 대신 주방 이용시간 비교적 제한적임 샤워실 저녁에 쓰면 ㄹㅇ 더러움 아침에 청소해준 직 후 쓰면 나음 타월, 락커키 다 돈 내야함. 충전기 USB만 있어도 충전가능. 싸고 가까우나 딱 하루 자기만 좋은 듯. 서브웨이 옆에 복사집 있으니 참고하셔요.
