Clink78 is a unique hostel housed in a former courthouse where Charles Dickens worked and The Clash stood trial. The hostel combines 200 years of history with cool interior design and modern facilities. Just a ten-minute walk from King’s Cross Rail Station, there’s easy access to no less than six tube lines, the National Rail Network and the Eurostar. The hostel has a lounge, a well-equipped self-catering kitchen and a bar (open 7pm til late) which hosts live music acts and DJs.

Free Wi-fi is available throughout the hostel and a continental breakfast is also included. Laundry facilities are available and there’s also a TravelSHOP where guests can buy discounted tickets for tours and attractions. Guests have their own key card to access their room and the main door of the hostel. The reception is manned 24/7 by friendly, multi-lingual staff who are always happy to offer tips on the city.

Clink offers a mixture of private rooms (single, twin, triple and prison cells) and dorms (from 4 to 16 beds) all of which are clean and comfortable. Innovative ‘Pod’ beds mean guests have their own reading light, USB socket and handy, small head locker for personal belongings. En-suite bathrooms are available in most private rooms and some dorms. Towels are included in private rooms and are available at a small cost for other room types.

Camden Market is nearby, along with Regent’s Park Zoo. The British Museum is also in the neighbourhood and St. Pauls Cathedral and the Tate Modern aren’t far away. The trendy borough of Hackney is within walking distance.

Special conditions apply for group bookings. Please contact the hostel to book for groups of 15 or more.

Please make sure to read Clink78’s terms & conditions, particularly our policy on bringing children into the hostel, before booking.
