Aptly named Clink78 occupies a 200 year old courthouse that has been totally renovated and turned into a contemporary hostel that you will love. Situated in up and coming Kings Cross, which offers easy access to the rest of Central London, Clink78 is filled with plenty of facilities including a bar, TV lounge, well equipped kitchens, payphones, wireless internet access and a fax machine. There’s even a lift so you don’t have to worry about struggling with your backpack!

If you stay in one of the centrally heated dormitories at Clink78, you will be sleeping in one of the old courtrooms! If you opt for a private room, you could be staying in one of the old police cells! Whatever room you opt for, you will sleep in a high tech pod bed and be able to take a hot shower in the shared shower rooms. As you’ll find tourist information here, as well as a 24 hour reception and 24 hour room access, you’ll find it easy to plan your stay and explore your surroundings.


There’s plenty to see and do surrounding Clink78! You’ll find tourist attractions like the London Canal Museum and the British Library nearby. Afterwards you can relax in Camley Street Natural Park, or head to the bars and restaurants of trendy Upper Street in nearby Islington. You can even walk to the British Museum and Covent Garden Market from here. To explore the rest of London you should make the most of Kings Cross St Pancras Tube Station a few minutes’ walk away from your hostel.
