I've spend couples of nights in this Hostel and the staff was amazing :-) ! There is a lot of young peoples from all around the world spending one or two nights, we could meet every hour someone from a different country :-)! It could be a mass, but it's always clean and other facilities are always on too! Great...

The most important thing for someone who was for the first time in London like me is that Clink hostel has a great location - 10 min from King’s Cross station, so I could easily get to the all attractions in the city. It was very clean considering the high volume of visitors that stayed here. Don’t miss the Courtroom...

I stayed at Clink 78 for 4 nights, and everything was okay. I arrived at 9 am so I left my luggage and decided to take a free tour (based on tips) I saw in one of the maps they offer at the front desk. The guide tour picked us up from the hostel, that was nice. Check in was...

We've stayed for 4 nights. Breakfast is included and it's right: toasts, coffef, tea, cocoa and good room to taking it. The place is in a very good location near the King's Cross station and you have also two bus lines (19 and 38) that go over the center of London, just near Picadilly Circus and Green park. The rooms...

I stayed here for a cheap one night stay over in London (which is hard to find). All the staff were friendly and helpful. For instance I saw them giving numerous people directions and tips for places to go. The rooms were clean though I prefer a slightly less brick like mattress. As I was travelling alone as a female,...

I didn't actually sleep here as I stayed in the other Clink hostel, but I visited the bar area and it was really good. Drinks were pretty cheap considering it's London, and had a very good atmosphere, as well as being open quite late! The hostel is in a good location; very near to Kings Cross station and a supermarket....

Most things here are fine. Killer set up, nice enough staff and good bar prices. My dorm smelt like crap and was very humid, even with window open. I understand a dorm isn't a hotel room, but still, was a tad gross. (Also no power point near bed like other hostels)

I stayed here with some friends and we really enjoyed this place. It was clean, not so expensive and it has a great position near King's Cross - St Pacras. I loved the location since it is an ex-courthouse and you can visit a real courtroom! Inside this youth hostel there's a pub, a cinema...everything! I'll come back.

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighbourhood Profile
Clerkenwell
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site of an ancient meat market which remains in operation today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough time wondering through the area's maze of streets and you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.
