      Super close to King's Cross Station. Bathrooms could do with cleaning more often, I wouldn't recommend staying in the rooms on the basement floor (uncomfortably hot and smelly as a consequence) and close to the bar. But overall, a nice hostel, great kitchen to cook in, good breakfast and friendly staff

      Great bar and really friendly people. Good place to stay if travelling on your own and wanting to meet people! Beds are satisfactory but ensuites are poor, better to use communal showers/toilets (as whole ensuite floods after one shower). Good value for money. Would happily stay again.

      Was an easy hostel to get to as it was right by the tube station straight from Heathrow. Hostel mixed up our reservations with another random Barclay that was due to arrive so we had to get a private room as there was nothing left. They fixed our reservation once the other barclay arrived but other than that the place was nice, quiet and clean.

      During my time in London I stayed here. The people were lovely and very helpful at explaining all the attractions of London and how to get to them. Every morning breakfast was provided with a range of cereals and toast, coffee, tea, and juice to choose from. The rooms were okay but at times it was very loud, which is what you would expect in a hostel! The bathrooms weren't to great but were bearable, although at times they seemed to need a good clean.
      Overall my stay here was very good and I would stay here again

      Clink has been a great base to explore London, for the price the comfortable clean dorms and common areas, location and free breakfast are fantastic. The only problem is that because it is so large (700+ beds) and caters to a lot of families and especially groups of highschool children, it doesn't provide the same opportunities to meet many people. Otherwise the staff are really friendly and helpful, the only issue with the facilities is that the wifi is expensive.

      I was only there for 1 night and a total of 8 hours but it seemed like a pretty cool hostel, heaps of people milling about. Amenities were good and all bedding was supplied. I think it cost 28 quid which isn't the cheapest but if you have the money then this would be a good place to base yourself!

      Clink was a good value for my money. It was close to the Tube and bus routes to downtown and close to restaurants. It was clean and nicely decorated. Internet was 50p per 15 minutes. Large tv room. The breakfast was included in the price (toast, ceral, tea, coffee, hot chocolate).

      Something a bit different, good price and friendly staff. 5-10 minute walk from Kings Cross Rail and Tube Stations. Plenty shops, little Cafe's Restaurants and Bars nearby. (Recommend the Italian at end of the road as they do take away Pizza's tho if there's a group of you try haggling for a discount to sit in, we did - 20%.
      Has a bar in it and Internet Access. ( top up at the box on wall in reception)
      Used it a couple times as seems to be pretty consistent and not to lively.
      The Dorm beds with partitions are a nice feature..

      I loved this hostel! It's cheap by London standards, close to Kings Cross which has great transportation day and night. The hostel is very clean with loads of hangout areas, a bunch of computers and even a bar with drink specials and events planned every night. You could seriously never leave the hostel and have a great time. The bathrooms are clean, as are the dorm rooms and the breakfast is great, lots of variety as well as a large kitchen to cook your own food in after the breakfast crowd leaves. Security is pretty good, you need a key card to get into the dorm area. Overall, I would absolutely recommend this hostel to anyone visiting London.
