The hostel has a great location (near St. Pancras station), staff are very friendly, the bar downstairs is amazing and open everyday (and it doesn't disturb other guests), and breakfast was pretty good as well.

I came with a group of people for a training in London and we stayed in the hostel for two days. The rooms are really really small and narrow, but considering we were already familiar with each other it was okay. In general, it was a very clean and quiet hostel. The breakfast is very good, with quite a few...

Thanks a lot Stella! Great tips as well :-) We do have hand soap in the toilets in the corridors and also sell soap and sleeping masks at the reception if you don't want to bring it yourself! Hopefully we see you when you're in London again! Kind regards, Laura, Guest Experience Manager

Having stayed at the ClinkNOORD hostel in Amsterdam recently, I was expecting good things from this place and it didn't disappoint. Close to Kings Cross station and therefore convenient for travelling to Central London and beyond, with a good cheap friendly bar (free half pint on arrival), excellent breakfast options and good bathroom facilities. My only nag would be than...

While I was staying in a London, I was lucky enough to stay at Clink78 and be apart of Clink's artist program called Stay & Create. Stay & Create is part of ClinkCreative, which is like a short artist residency. Clink values creating a creative centric community around their hostels so they have several programs for artists, writers, and musicians...

I have to say that I had a great time here. All of the staff were friendly and accommodating. Had been emailing Ana a few times to arrange for 4 different reservations of different friends to all be put in the one room and she was an absolutely pleasure to deal with. The room (10 bed dorm) was spacious with...

It is a very good hostel; excellent value for price. The location is great, tube station is placed nearby. For such a big hostel, it is really clean, both dormitories and bathrooms, but you need to pay to get a towel and a padlock. The breakfast was good also and the hostel has a good service (bar, food, kitchen, free...

The staff did not tell me of places to visit like other hostels I have been in. The room had an odd smell. On top of that I was in a small dorm and one person vomited on my bed. I could not sleep in my room for the last night. The showers do not give much water and you...

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.
