We offer clean and modern facilities such as a self-catering kitchen, a chic internet corner where you can write emails, a comfy lounge to play Wii or kick back and relax in front of its huge plasma TV, a laundry and even a travel desk at reception.

  1. SANG CHUL From South Korea On November 30, -0001

    It was horrible. dirtdy and slow service. you have to wait at least 10minutes for check in

  2. otto From Netherlands On November 30, -0001

    Very cheap hostel considering the very good location and free good breakfast. Sometimes I fell over recharging cables, I am very sorry for that. The internet was a bit slow, and during the evening times it was difficult to connect. The people in the hostel were very nice and I made many new friends.

  3. Stefan From Netherlands On November 30, -0001

    Just bring some earplugs if your in the shared room ;)

  4. Oleksandr From Ukraine On November 30, -0001

    Only stayed for one night, so I didn't have to use the shower which looked rather dirty (as well as the bathroom - although I've seen much worse). Otherwise everything ok for its price. Location is pretty good as well.

  5. Fausto From Portugal On November 30, -0001

    The worst thing in this hostel was the fact that the rooms had no ventilation, so the windows must be open. The only problema is that outside the street is very noisy. Beside that the hostel was ok.

  6. Morgane From Belgium On November 30, -0001

    It was perfect! Very nice decoration and and people at the entrance were very nice and helpful! I would come back and recommend it! :)

  7. KEELY TSANG From USA On November 30, -0001

    except for the hardware everything is amazing (temporarily out of hot water and no head light in the lower level bed....sigh)

  8. Murillo From Brazil On November 30, -0001

    Was amazing, 100m from King's Cross, In front of supermarkets, McDonald's etc... I have enjoyed to much!

  9. Svenja From Germany On November 30, -0001

    Nice small Hostel, very close to King's Cross Station. The staff is nice and helpful. We had a 4 person room, which was quite small, but clean. The bathrooms (shower/toilet) were clean as well; none on the floor we were staying though, only two floors down (they are renovating I guess). The breakfast was rather minimalistic.

  10. steven From England On November 30, -0001

    clean hostel good breakfast close to rail station beds comfy but a bit clostrophobic due to design

  11. emilija From Croatia On November 30, -0001

  12. NANA From Japan On November 30, -0001

    the location is so good. but every night people who stayed at same hostel was too noisy... i felt bad. therefore, the laundry was broken... kitchen was darty.... i never want to go

  13. Jana From Slovenia On November 30, -0001

    very nice zimmer in dormitores. they were all very quiet, nice and did not make noise...nice maps...

  14. Wataru From Japan On November 30, -0001

    I had really enjoyed at the hostel. It was very funky a clink!

  15. Babette From Netherlands On November 30, -0001

    location near King's cross is great, loads of busses and underground lines nearby. Room and kitchen (very nice large one) were clean, bathroom unfortunatly not. Small rooms, with 1,80 m beds, so if your tall, that will be a problem.I didn't quite get it why there was music in the hall from app 8am -11pm. The walls are thin and you definitely need earplugs! Ask for a room away from the street, wich is busy and there's a club across the street. Nice for a few nights, not if you'd like to stay longer. It would be nice if all the staff could speak proper English.

  16. Gianluca From Italy On November 30, -0001

    i think that Clink261 is a good hostel for young people, students and children. The rooms are clean, kind staff, good position, (is near King Cross Station). But the men's bathroom would be to renovate...

  17. Eduardo From Brazil On November 30, -0001

    Well, despite of really good staff, I didn't like the way of beds are placed in rooms. You pratically will spleep with face to face to other people.

  18. Antoine From France On November 30, -0001

    Good hostel, that's my advice for you, don't hesitate! Very cheap, London is not so expensive as we could think... Staff is cool, it's clean, what do you want more? A great and stylish kitchen with a small living room, TV, computers.. ;) and breakfast is good too! Thanks a lot, see you soon!

  19. Matthew From Australia On November 30, -0001

    Friendly staff, comfortable beds, friendly vibe, great central position. What more can you want? Will definitely be back.

  20. Anne From Germany On November 30, -0001

    This is a great place to stay! The hostel is well, it's safty and the staff is really friendly (thx to Richard for the nice entertainment during the good breakfast!) :o)
