Property Description

Discover a real slice of British history and soak up the lively atmosphere at Clink78 hostel. The building is a former courthouse in King’s Cross where Charles Dickens worked and The Clash stood trial! The Eurostar, The National Rail and six tube lines are just ten minutes’ away by foot. Connect to free Wi-Fi throughout the hostel and tuck into a great-value buffet breakfast for £2.

ClashBAR, Clink78’s basement entertainment venue, is the place to head for DJ nights, live music, pool / table football and great drinks deals. Hang out with fellow travelers in the TV / Film Lounge in one of the original courtrooms or cook a budget friendly meal in the modern self-catering kitchen. If you’re lucky, you can also catch artists creating or musicians performing as part of the hostel’s ClinkCREATIVE program. Reception is open 24/7 and manned by friendly, multi-lingual staff who are happy to share their top tips on the city. They also run our TravelSHOP where you can buy discounted tickets for London attractions and other handy travel products. Night security is in place from 9pm and guests access the building and their room with a personal key card. A free walking tour leaves daily from the hostel.

Clink78 offers a mixture of private rooms and dorms, some of which have en-suite bathrooms. Most rooms now have bunk beds with a personal light and locker (lockers vary in size from room to room, bring your own padlock). Bed linen is included and towels are available for a small fee (towels are included in private rooms).

Please make sure to read the hostel's Terms & Conditions before booking. Special conditions apply for group bookings (15 guests or more), please contact the hostel directly.

● 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 14.30 of your arrival date notice. Passed this time, I am afraid full charges will incur

    Fabulous

    The greatest advantages of Clink78 are the location, a 7 minute walk away from King's Cross. The breakfast here is very generous and there is a Stanstander bike station literally just next to the building. The kitchen can get crowded but everyone gets by somehow. Atmosphere was friendly, many opportunities to meet with fellow travelers.

    Rooms and toilets are so tiny. Rooms have no ventilation unless the window is open so you hear street noise all night.

    Very Good

    Cool place and if booked in advance good value for money. Decent location. The staff are fine. The atmosphere is pretty awful, no one talks to eachother at all not even amongst the people in the dorm I stayed in. Not really the hostels fault but something to bear in mind. I was there for one night after flying in to London before heading home the next day and for me it was ideal. Id recommend it for that but not as a place to meet travel buddies.
