        Stayed for 9 days Pro : everything good for solo traveler. Nice bed. Nice room. Con: have to book breakfast with package. Cant pay for separate day. Staff said cant use kitchen during the morning time, so i decide to book a breakfast package . But at the morning got other guest who can use kitchen with their own food. Kitchen close at midnite. Kinda difficult for a person like me who has gastric prblm so have to eat often.

        Bathroom is a bit small. Staffs are helpful. With this low price everything worths but dont expect the room to be very spacious. Book the breakfast online is the cheapest which is £2.5 while booking at the front desk and directly at the breakfast will be 3 and 4.

        Strategic location, staff it’s helpful(24 hour reception)”

        The hotel location it’s really convenient to hoping around city, it stated about 5 minutes walk from the King Cross St. Pancreas which connected mostly every line of Underground station. There’s also train station ( Harry potter platform 9 3/4) to travel to other city as well. They clean your room and toilet everyday. However the room it’s all the while dark even morning. It’s ok for me, cuz it’s a hostel. Clink 261 it’s more quiet than Clink 78 as they have a bar there, if you concern more to rest choose 261. The kitchen it’s 24 hour access too, unless they close to cleaning progress. The room it’s warm for winter, I was awake in the middle of night because of sweating. So no worry for keeping yourself warm in winter here.

        가격 대비 괜찮아요, 위치가 good”

        The location is good, it's near king's cross and the way to there is a little bit safe. 4 people in the room says loudly in the room, so I wake up 1 am, and get angry. But the people who use the room with is up to the air. It's easy to find the hostel. The room was neither clean nor dirty, and it's unconvenient system to ring the bell, and steps open the door. 위치 괜찮아요, 킹스크로스 역에서 가깝고 가는 길이 큰 길이라서 좀 안전해요. 저 방에 있던 흑인 4명이 새벽에 늦게 들어와서 계속 들어와서 깼네요, 그리고 좀 무서웠어요. 근데 이건 뭐 운에 달린 거니까요,,, 찾기도 쉬워요, 근데 초인종 누르고 스텝이 문 열어주는 방식이라서 계속 왔다갔다 거리기가 좀 그랬어요

        Security of this hostel is a problem”

        The stay in Clink261 is OK in general. I have been staying in lots of hostel and this one is the dirtiest hostel I have ever stay. Plus the security is not good at all. You can tell people (random on the street, but I’m pretty sure they did that all he time) tail-gate to go thought the “security door” (which just right next to the reception), i found it ridiculous. I witness a older gentleman tail-gated the other people living in hostel, then he went down to watch television nearby the kitchen, then leave the hostel after few hours ( I was cooking and storing food in the kitchen thats how I witnessed this). Do not feel safe to stay in this hostel. I understand reception is busy but it should have better security and always keep an eyes on the door.

        Hiya Charlotte! Thanks for taking the time out of your day to write us a review! As you said reception does get quite busy sometimes and we really do try our very best to prevent such things from happening which is why we have the CCTV cameras in operation. But we always encourage any guest to come and see us at reception 24/7 if there is anyone that is making them feel uncomfortable. I hope you may still give us another shot in the future. Happy holidays

        If you look for a cheap bed, it’s a good hostel.”

        It has a good access to the useful station and a cheap price to stay in London. The only thing I wanna complain about is my belongings(laptop, cash and so on) were stolen in 6-people dorm room. When I reported about it to the receptionist, he looked like he didn’t really worry even though it happened at their property. I know it was my problem being stolen, but I felt weird about it. Also, you can put the luggage after checkout. When you pick it up, I think stuff doesn’t see whose one it is. So, maybe it’s the environment to be stolen. Anyway, it’s good if you wanna stay cheap.
