Lonely Planet review

This fantastic 500-bed hostel is housed in a 19th-century magistrates courthouse where Dickens once worked as a scribe and members of the Clash made an appearance in 1978. Rooms feature pod beds (including storage space) in four- to 16-bed dormitories (there is a female aisle). There’s a top kitchen with a huge dining area and a busy bar in the basement.

Parts of the hostel, including seven spooky (and vaguely claustrophobic) cells converted to bedrooms and a pair of wood-panelled court rooms used as a TV lounge and an internet room, are heritage-listed.

Our independent authors have visited Clink78 and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Hampstead & North London.

Description provided by property

Clink 78 is a stylish backpacker hostel which is oozing with character and history and is packed with friendly staff looking to make your stay an enjoyable one. Clink78 combines 200 years of history with a quirky and colourful interior and is located in the old Magistrates courthouse on Kings Cross Road. Clink78 is unique in its appearance and is in the perfect position to connect travelers to no less than six tube lines, the national rail network and the Euro Star to Europe.

We believe that Clink 78 has everything a backpacker needs all under one roof. Chillax in our TV courtroom, catch up on your world affairs in our internet courtroom or cook your self up a budget backpacker banquet in our self catering kitchen. We offer a mixture of private rooms and dorms, and most private rooms and some of the dorms have their own bathrooms. We also offer Girls Only dorms and Girls Deluxe dorms for even more luxury.

Freebies include:
A Continental breakfast
Bed linen
A Luggage room
A Towel for everyone who books into a female deluxe dorm or private rooms.
A London walking tour
A London map
Safety boxes

If excitements your thing then our small, but perfectly formed, travel shop can send you off on your very own London adventure. When you return, dust your pack off and head down to our famous basement Clashbar which brings you 7-nights-a-week of pure entertainment, fun and frivolity. It's great value and the perfect place for a recap on the days events. Feel free to wash them down with an ice cold beer or glass of wine :)

Please make sure you read our terms & conditions before booking.

See you soon!
