          Nice location, easy to find, good for stay over a night and do what you need to do.

          Hmm, I don't really know. I just stayed there for one night. But one thing is sure - if I ever book a room there again, it will not be an underground level close to the bar ^_^

          I don't like the shower room! It's so hot !!! Can Clink78 help newcomer any help with their luggage? To many people it's a long way to the hostel and they feel very tired and their luggages somestimes are very heavy. The price is still very high with current condition of Clink78

          Loved the easy access to the city! The people there were great, the bar downstairs is a really great place to relax and meet people. High quality facilities, although you have to pay for them.

          The small rooms, though expected for a backpackers, No larger lockers in rooms, the one provided hardly most things.

          Fairly Good value for money in a central London location close to the tube. The 4 bed dorm room with ensuite was good, with a bit more room to breath, move around in and to store luggage than the 4 bed dorm room without bathroom that I also stayed in previously. As the latter was very cramped. The ensuite was looked fresh and new and was clean.

          The four bed dorm room without ensuite I stayed in was very tiny - no room to swing a cat really. Rooms and Facilities while basic are clean however. But then for the rock bottom price you can't expect too much.

          Great atmosphere! People were very open and I met several friends who I'm already planning to visit. Over all the hostel felt very young and cool, and was located pretty close to Camden which was an advantage when you went to the clubs there. Next time I go to London, I'll definitly be stating there again!

          Good location - it would be nicer if it would be close to the station but it's OK.

          No wi-fi and noisy at night. If your room is basement and near the bar, you might not have a good sleep.

        • Single

          There were never any queues at the showers, my roommates were the same for almost my entire stay. The location is great as it's only 10 minutes on foot from Kings Cross St. Pancras station and quite easy to find. Another plus is that there is no curfew of any sort. Nothing was stolen from me during my stay.

          There was no hot water one night and the staff sent those who still wanted to take a shower to another Clink hostel on a neighboring street. The mattresses on the beds seemed rather old and not especially clean. But these were minor nuisances in an otherwise great experience.

          Our room was a small cage in the basement next to the bar with a delicious smell of the sewage system: we felt like sardins in a crushed tinbox .... other than that it was nice

        • Couple
          2.8

          Nothing. The room was terribly small and uncomfortable.Anyway we didn't pay less for such kind of room without facilities. I think we were just cheated.

        • Single
          8.2

          The rooms were pretty comfy (you got what you paid for) the prices at the bar were unbeatable, but best of all the was meeting the people who were also staying at the hostel. The bar was the best place to meet people and I met some amazing people! Also, a lot of australians staying in the hostel!

          The showers. The main unisex showers only had scolding hot water that would turn off right after pushing the button and the one hook in the stall allowed for your clothes to get thoroughly soaked. Although, I did find the showers that had cold water there was only one hook in the room and smelled pretty funky, but other than that and the ventilation in the rooms and computer room the hostel was great!

          Very good and fun for the vale of money. It's got facilities, service & fun activities for backpackers. Good for solo travelers on budget. Only things is it's not close to metro if you have heavy luggages, but the nearest station is a big station that can get u to many places.

          Not close to underground. The luggage room key can be accessed easily without identification that can be a safety concern if you have value stuff.

        • Group of friends
          5.0

          The location of the hotel is good. If you like going out at night, you can walk to famous clubs of London just in 15 minutes.

          The rooms are extremely small. It feels like sleeping in a submarine.

        • Single
          6.6

          Proximity to Euston station.

          It seemed over-crowded to me. There were no facilities for making one's own breakfast, which was understandable given the number of people there. However, it meant that someone with a specialist diet had to go without.

        • Single
          10.0

          I'm 51 and had never stayed at a hostel before. I needed to try it this time though when some free lodging I had arranged with a friend in London fell through at the last minute. I was a little anxious, but things were marvelous. Rooms and beds were clean. Guests in my room were quiet and respectful. I really enjoyed the bar/lounge area. It was really interesting seeing the variety of people from a great variety of countries pass through. And while most of the guests were much younger than me, there were enough older guests too that I never felt awkward or uncomfortable about being there.

          No complaints. While it's unlikely I'll ever find myself in London again in the near future, if I am I would certainly consider staying here again.
