Great hostel. The lift is a little..shall we say..snug. Not good for people with claustrophobia or issues with small spaces. Otherwise, I have no complaints. Super location, close to King's Cross & St. Pancras! Staff are excellent. Will stay again.More

Close to King's Cross station. Everything at Clink is set up to flow well, so it's easy to source what's needed for first time guests. Relaxed. Efficient. Comfortable. A convenient base for travel through UK and Europe. Capacity approx. 180 guests
