What used to be a former courthouse, Clink78 is now a vibrant and lively hostel that’s about 15 minutes walk away from the King’s Cross St. Pancras station (yes, the one with the Harry Potter’s platform 9/34), comes with free breakfast, a selection of all-female dorms.
Another one of Clink78’s features is its very own hostel bar, Clash Bar – which is inspired by the fact that the punk band The Clash used to stand trial in this former courthouse. The bar hosts live music and DJ nights, along with a good selection of cheap beers and fun bartenders.
While the Clink78 hostel is not heavily designed, the areas were kept clean, well made up and gave a funky, hip and young vibe yet not being noisy because the hostel bar is tucked away down in the basement which made sure that the rest of the building is not affected by the ongoing parties.
The Clink78 hostel also offers private rooms for those that would like to enjoy their own personal space at an affordable rate.
