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 accommodations at this hostel were great—location is great, staff was helpful, facilities were functional and convenient—but I don’t know if it was the right one for me. As a solo-traveler in my late 20’s, I want a social hostel where I can meet people. The crowd skewed towards younger groups just looking to party. Clink78 is a great hostel, just make sure you know what you’re in for.

    This hostel and the people we met here made our trip. The only thing I wish it had was an air conditioner in the room as we were on the ground level and our windows opened directly onto a bus stop. I think I’d have felt more comfortable being able to close them but that said I never felt unsafe in this hostel. Apart from that the mix of people was fantastic. Breakfast was £2 with a decent variety and you’re a 7 minute walk from one of the most connected tube stations in the city. Loved it!!

    I got so hot and sweaty that I confused my froth with a flood.

    Awful hostel. Someone in my room robbed from someone’s jacket and broke into my locker along with another girl. Staff could have cared less. Their lockers have the HUGEST keyholes that anyone with half a brain can jam a typical lock through. The facilities were gross and toilets were clogged in many toilets. The beds were not real mattresses and were uncomfortable, my back and neck ached. The “clash bar” was so tacky and and embarrassing. Only positive was the USB above the bed. Stay elsewhere.
