3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed here for just one night in between trips and I would say it was average at best. The rooms are extremely small, I was in a six-bed dorm and there was only one small little window so it was very hot and uncomfortable. I was on the top bunk which didn't have a traditional ladder to it but... More

Upon arrival to our room after a long day of travelling we were greeted with a hot and stuffy room, with a tiny, minuscule window that provided no ventilation. If you like showering in an airport toilet, this is the place to stay. Room is disgustingly ,narrow, suffocating and crammed with two bunk beds. On a summers day this sweat... More

Totally happy with my stay here. The rooms, common areas, and bathrooms were clean and inviting. I had wifi in my room which was fantastic. The location is great. A short walk from KX station where you have access to the whole of London. The only downside is the rooms are really tiny. I was in a 4 person dorm... More

I've been traveling in many hostels across europe & uk for 3months... this was one of my least favourites. Room of 12ppl...it was tiny. Seriously, way too small for the number of bodies. There's no space to put your luggage anywhere... people have to put most of their belongings on their beds (even when you're sleeping). The bunks are touching each... More

I went to stay in this hostel on an educational trip with the CCAD in Hartlepool for a weekend away and I thought the accommodation I stayed in was terrible. The rooms were small with bunk beds fitting 4 people in one room and it felt too crammed in. I couldn't sleep very well at the hostel. The toilets and... More

Good hostel with nice guests and friendly staff! Its just 10 minutes walking from the underground and the clash bar was very good. Very good if you travel alone, friends are easily made! Breakfast was good too! The hostel is very central located:)

Clean rooms, water in the common showers was a little hot, but bearable! Overall good for the price! Great service, helped me call a cab to the airport! Quite near to king's cross station. Rooms are a little cramped but still had a good sleep!

I had a good time here, it's quite social I'd say. Free breakfast is decent and the staff are very nice. It's close to one of the main train stations, so it's easy to get around from the hostel. I would come back again.

Stayed here a few seperate occasions, each time was great. Loved the staff, the common areas, the beds and the bar! Only downfall was a couple of gross showers Breakfast was basic, but all you need. Kitchen area was also good. Could have been more powerpoints, and WiFi.. But hey, forced me to mingle! So thumbs up!

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.
