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.

Exceptional”

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.
