I had a perfect stay at Clink78. I entered the building and fell in love with it immediately.... I like the athosphere, the staff is friendly and the rooms are clean and tidy. You can chill, thrill and socialize there, it is all up to you. That place is very stylish, the corridors are painted in different colors what makes... More

Nice room... nice atmosphere...nice breakfast. I didn´t like the noise.... people Knocking on the doors and making noise.Our room was near the bar and the laundry ( very noisy).The building was very nice( an old court)... near the underground. They kept your luggage after we made your check-out for free.

I travel a lot and I never take time to write reviews. But my stay at Clink 78 was so uncomfortable and left me feeling so taken advantage of that I need to say what I think. i choose it because the ratings were acceptable, but I made a mistake in not reading the reviews in detail. I stayed in... More

Cool, laid back atmosphere in the hostel and really has a space for everybody! Yo can chill in the old courtroom converted to a wi-fi room or if you want to be in the party just head downstairs to the bar and get funky with everyone else who is staying there. I made great friends at this place and still... More

Everything war fine. Clean rooms and facilities, food, nice people and a great location. Furthermore the included bar in the basement was awesome. Breakfast included everything you needed, the kitchen was for own use at lunch time. I couldn't ask for more!

We loved the price and location of this hostel. You get what you pay for: we had a very small room with only our bed and a sink, however it was decorated simply but nicely and was just what we needed for the night. Service was good at reception. Our room was for 2 but could actually have slept 3... More

Good location - close to major stations. A half hour stroll will get you to the river / city . Stayed in a cell which are obviously small but unique. Toilets and showers are clean. As hostels go it is spot on.

Considering it is a hostel that is bang in the middle of London we were really pleased with both the cost of our stay and the facilities. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Kitchen had good facilities and the bar was a great bonus! Will definitely be back soon!

Great for one night stay after event at Hammersmith Apollo when too late to travel home from Euston station. Recommended by a friend. Clean room with ensuite, friendly staff, nice atmosphere, a unique opportunity to stay in a former prison cell!, simple but good breakfast included.

Good facility conveniently located. However, the guests are not the most proper and the cleaning service is not the quickest to intervene. Vomit all over the corridor one night and a big poo in the shower the other morning are the unpleasant surprices we had during our stay.

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighborhood 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.
