    Excellent hostel!!! I will come back... thank you all staff!!!

  3. Sandra From Germany On November 30, -0001

    Everything was fine! It was very clean and hygenic. The 12-person-rooms are not the biggest but you still have enough privacy.

  4. Blandine From Germany On November 30, -0001

    It was a good place to stay but too expensiv .The rooms to small no ventilation never quiet at night

  5. Seow Hwee From Singapore On November 30, -0001

    This hostel is perfect - except for no wifi in rooms and that you have to be careful with closing the dorm door cos it slams shut and u dont want to disturb the rest. Location was perfect (10min walk from king cross), bed and pillow were very very comfy, clean sheets and towel. the showers are so clean omg and good water pressure with hairdryer. Room access needs key card so it is very safe!! Stay here, you wont regret it and you will end up loving it!!!

  6. Johanna From Sweden On November 30, -0001

    Everything was great and we enjoyed our stay. Exept for the shower rooms. They where not so pleasant. The floor around the well was dirty and some had green stuff around them! And the quiet after what ever time it was did not work at all. Peoples where running and screaming in the hallway and no one did anything about it. Except for that we enjoyed our stay. The room were cute and the staff was amazingly helpful.

  7. Laura From France On November 30, -0001

  8. Marloes From Netherlands On November 30, -0001

    Best hostel i ve been so far!! very nice staff, great location and a nice bar!

  9. Gergely From Hungary On November 30, -0001

    The room was clean but very small and simple. I think that some shelves on the wall would be very useful and it would not be a big investment. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the stay in the Clink.

  10. Milcho From Bulgaria On November 30, -0001

    Excellent transport conditions by bus,tube or train! The included "all you can eat" breakfast is coffee,bread,jam and butter. In 21th century 3 Pound for wifi is a charge! Nice kitchen for cooking and fun,the bar is cool!

  11. Anastasia From Russia On November 30, -0001

  14. CHIAO - YI From Taiwan On November 30, -0001

    just the bath water is not so convenient and the light in room is so dark, others are good.

  15. Alessandro From Italy On November 30, -0001

    Good beds, good place and not very exopensive.

  16. Ivona From Czech Republic On November 30, -0001

    Hi there :-) Very interesting bulding, nicely used.The position easy to find, perfect connections for us. The reception desk staff fabulous only we were told to move to the other room in the middle of our breakfast by the kitchen member which we refussed. I understand that breakfast does finish at 10am but is it necesary to disturbe the guests who are still eating and came early enough. Also there was not hot water when we need it and the smeel at the toilet was very unpleasant. The space under each door doesn't give you enough privacy and we were woken up by other guests who came back to the room late night and were loudly talking in the coridor. I think everybody should be said personaly at the desk about this problem even it's written there on the wall. Over all we did enjoy our stay and thank you :-)

  17. Laura From France On November 30, -0001

    I think that Clinck 78 is one of the best places for students in London. It's not expenssive, clean, and the atmosphere is really really good. The clashbar is also a very good idea, me and my friends had so much fun ! I'll come back as soon as possible !

  18. Maxime From France On November 30, -0001

    I have been there 3 days and It´s a very good place to stay in London. It´s only 5 minutes walking from the KING CROSS station. It´s cheap and clean, there is also a bar with a very good ambient during the night. I advice you to go there !

  19. Juan Patricio From Argentina On November 30, -0001

    I friend of mine call it the hostel for snobby people. It's a big hostel, with a lot of rooms that you have to open with a key-card. The best part is the pub-restaurant and the breakfast included. The worst part is the few bathrooms for that quantity of rooms and their small size were there's no place to put your foots. Other bad thing is that if you want to use wifi you must pay aditional 5 pounds. Good idea the think of the private walls that has each bed.

  20. JAIME From Mexico On November 30, -0001

    The espace in the room is so reduced, but in general almost everything is ok!!!!
