I stayed here solo, there are great resources and it has an atmosphere conducive to making friends if you try. Breakfast was pretty decent. Location was good as Kings Cross is such a major station. I got a little lost a couple of times trying to find it, but I blame that on the London's streets and myself more than...

A good surprise. Very clean hostel everywhere:the bedrooms, bathrooms, toilets, kitchen.

Having been here for so long earlier in the year, I felt I seen lots of groups come and go but I am happy to say the Hostel remained consistent throughout. Beds are ok, but I would say few of the rooms I stayed in were a bit cramped and had a funny smell, but that may have been other...

Clink 78 is in a great location off the beaten path in a very cool building. Steps away there are delis and restaurants and places for coffee and breakfast, both usual and unique.

When it comes to hostels, you kind of know what you're getting into... So, for what it is, this place is great. I stayed on the 5th floor (far above the basement lounge) in a 10-person room; my roommates were quiet and I slept like a baby. The bed was comfortable. The 'dock' area downstairs was great for doing a...

The location of this hostel is great and it is possible to meet funny and nice people from different countries. I had book a 8-bed dormitory which has small space but clean. However, some of roommates are really noisy even it was 3am.

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.
