The best hostel i've ever been to.”

Clink 78 has a good location, 5-10min walk from king cross St pancreas. The hostel is big, lots of common area which you can meet a lot of people. The kitchen is really clean and equipped. The breakfast included is good. One problem is there was not enough electrical plug in 10 beds room.

recommendation for backpackers”

the hostel was very central; it is super near to king's cross/st pancras. the room (private room) was small but did its job. a bit hot at night, though. showers and toilets were always clean when we used them, there was never traffic at the bathrooms or the breakfast hall. breakfast consisted of a lot of choices and was very cheap (2 pounds each person). staff was VERY friendly and had a lot of good advices for sightseeing and so on. only thing that really annoyed us was the noise at night. the first night some backpackers partied so loud that we had to tell the staff, which told them to turn down the music which the partypeople did. additionally, there were earplugs provided in the rooms. I guess backpackers are aware that hostels can be noisy. besides that it was a wonderful cheap stay in the heart of london.

This is a very big hostel, The facilities were good and the Clink bar was welcoming and the food and drinks weren't badly priced. The beds were pretty hard. And even with a private room, it was very noisy. If you are flying out of the further airports the cheapest way is to walk to the St. Pancras Internation station and take the direct train from the Thameslink station area at the very back corner of the station.

Good, central and inexpensive hostel”

Located close to Kings Cross Station; Very comfortable bed; Inexpensive.

Very quick check-in, nice comfortable "Pod" style bed, with separation from adjoining beds. Good security and easy check-out. The hostel is located about 5-10 minutes walk from Kings Cross Rail/Underground Station and is on or near a couple of bus routes. Very well recommended if you require inexpensive accommodation near Central London and are not fussed about sharing your room with strangers.

Good Central London Location”

The hostel was a good 10 mins walk from Kings Cross-St Pancras. It is a large hostel and the breakfast at 3 Pounds was a good bargain. It would be good if the toilets could be cleaned more than once a day when the hostel is fully occupied. There is an interesting common room to work on your laptop which was an old courtroom where convicts were on trail before being sent to Australia I was told. You can sit on the judge's chair, or lawyers / accused cubicles and work on your laptop.

Very nice place with cool interior. Kitchen is very big and nice. The bar, kitchen, many rooms, pool table, computer room, and other hangout rooms make this place different from most hostels in the area. It was a great place to experience London from. The restaurants near the hostel are cheaper too.

Good for Meeting”

This hostel is about a ten minute walk from Kings Cross station which can easily get you all over the city. It is clean but the showers are poorly designed and you are guaranteed to get your clothes, towel, and most of the floor outside wet. The rooms are also tiny and over filled so that people have little space for their belongings, making the rooms appear messy. Staff seemed to busy for you and a little unfriendly. If you have a problem, you'll have to wait in line and the will allow people to pub in front of you. Security are unfriendly and seem more interested in picking fights with guests than securing the building. The best part of this hostel is the kitchen and bar area. Filled with plugs and quiet nooks, this is a great area for anyone to hang out in. Free WiFi everywhere means you can catch up on your emails and the bar includes a pool table and events to help you meet new people. The bar staff are amazing and really try to get you involved. The kitchen is also well-equipped so yu can save some $ making your own food.

Hostel is only a couple of minutes away from Kings Cross Station. Rooms (i stayed in the Female Dorm) were actually big enough for luggage and you have your own locker (don't forget to bring a padlock). The showers (best I have seen in a hostel) and toilets were for females only a well and absolutely clean. Staff ( i was welcomed by Mike) were really nice!

Generous breakfast!”

Location, great staffs, breakfast

I stay in the room with four beds and i think the room is quite small. You may get lost in this hotel since the hallway is like a maze, but i think it is kind of unique experience since this place is formerly a courtroom. The breakfast is the best part of the hostel; bread, wholemeal bread, cereal, jams, butter, milk and OMG, i just love having breakfast here, its like a party breakfast!!! The number of shared toilets and shower room is adequate as i never have to queue for shower or using the toilet. The only problem bothers me is that, our room have a small window that we can hear the noise from the basement bar at night (especially karaoke night). me and my roommate have difficulty sleeping at night because of this.

Nice little quirky hostel close to King's Cross. We had a twin en-suite for a night, the room wasn't very spacious but was enough for one night. There weren't any curtains to the big window and the road was a little noisy and no hooks to hand coats or handbags. Inconsiderate neighbours waking up early and talking or shouting in the corridor was not ideal. But hostel was very clean, staff friendly so would recommend.

I booked two weeks in Clink and most of the time is terrific, the room is clean and the staffs are very helpful. But there's only one thing confusing me, one morning an elder staff dragged my quilt and shouted at me “check out!” , without any asking and confirmation, I explained it was not my date to check out, TWICE, then she finally realized she mixed up, I could understood but maybe she should be more patient before she find out the truth. Generally, it still a good experience when I lived here.

Cool atmosphere, worth the price”

I can really recommend Clink78 to young London visitors, especially in groups and without luxury standards. Situated in an old justice building, the hostel has a cool atmosphere and is bustled with groups of young travellers. There is a hostel-own bar downstairs - which, however, did not affect our sleep in any way. Breakfast was free. You can get an (admittedly tiny but completely sufficient and clean) double cell for a price you pay for a 12-dorm at other places. The hostel is a bit off the City center but reachable within a reasonable time from all major spots in London. The staff was not super-friendly but helpful. Only negative point: Getting warm water in the shower was a bit of a challenge and took patience (3-5 min). If that does not put you off and you want a cheap, clean and cozy stay in London, go there.
