Clink261 is a comfortable, centrally located hostel just 5 minutes' walk from King's Cross Tube and St. Pancras International Station; London’s main transport hub. The hostel offers free WiFi throughout the building and a great-value all-you-can-eat breakfast for £4.

Clink261 opened its doors 20 years ago. It's come a long way since then but it’s still got that laid-back feel that backpackers love. Staying at Clink261 feels a bit like coming home. With a self-catering kitchen, friendly staff and comfortable sofas, it’s a welcoming place to return to after a day of city exploration. The old Student Union building has been brought to life with unique British-themed interiors.  

Clink261 has shared dormitory style accommodation along with girls' only dorms and private rooms. All bunk beds have individual reading lights, a USB/electric port to charge up your devices and a locker (sizes vary from room to room, bring your own padlock). Towels are included in private rooms and available to others for a small fee.

Guests can chill out in the lounge area or cook something tasty in the well-equipped self-catering kitchen. They are also welcome to head to ClashBAR at nearby Clink78 (just 320m away) where there are DJ nights, live music, pool / table football and great drinks deals. 

Reception is open 24/7 and offers discounted tickets on tours and attractions. The friendly team will be happy to help with any questions.
King's Cross is a bustling and creative area of London. Famous gig venue 'Water Rats' is nearby, an open-air swimming pool is just the other side of King's Cross station (only for the brave!). 'Kerb' Street Food Market is held regularly in Granary Square. The British Museum and Camden Market are a 25-30 minutes’ walk away and all of London's big sights are easily reached on public transport. 
At just five minutes’ walk from King’s Cross Underground, Clink261’s location is hard to beat.

Please make sure to read the hostel's Terms & Conditions before booking.
Special conditions apply for group bookings (20 guests or more), please contact the hostel directly.

If you wish to cancel or amend your reservation and avoid full charges for your booking, please ensure you notify us by email as soon as possible and at least 48 hours prior your arrival date notice. Passed this time, I am afraid full charges will incur. Hausregeln anzeigen

    Rooms are tight but each bed felt quite private. bring a padlock to use the lockers. bathrooms (toilets and showers) were always very clean and have been cleaned daily. two pound breakfast was cheap and good. the kitchen is well equipped - and also clean (tho that might depends on the others who use it). didn't have a lot to do with the staff while I stayed for 5 days but when they were regularly friendly to extremely nice. never used public transport and reached everything within an hour!

    Super Lage! Nur 5min von Kings Cross! Super freundliche Mitarbeiter! Zimmer relativ klein und eng , jedoch sind die Betten sehr bequem und man hat am Bett gleich mehrere Lademöglichkeiten , Licht und Ablage . Frühstück für den Preis von 2 Pfund völlig okay :) Alles problemfrei abgelaufen

    We stayed at a 10 bed mixed dorm. There was enough room and you could store smaller bags under the beds and even lock them. There was also a big luggage room, where you can put your luggage on checkout day. The beds were comfy and each bed had a light and plenty of charging slots. Bathrooms can be a bit crowded but that wasn’t really a problem. Overall definitely worth the price! We expected a lot less and thought it was a pleasant stay!

    Im Großen und Ganzen ein völlig akzeptables Hostel. Nette Mitarbeiter, ein sauberes Bett und eine recht gute Küche. Einzige Mängel sind, dass es keine Hauseigene Bar gibt und das die Wände von Zimmer zu Zimmer sehr dünn und hellhörig waren ( eine Nacht kaum geschlafen, da der Nachbar meinte nach dem Feiern noch Musik hören zu müssen). Aber he, es ist immernoch ein Hostel und eig gehören Ohrenstöpsel dazu und mit sowas muss man rechnen somit, naja =). Die Lage ist auch in Ordnung.

    Very small bedroom for so many people. Two beds would have been okay, but there were four. The next bathroom was on another floor with only ONE sink. The Location ist super close to The Station But the neighbourhood is kinda drug Dealer area sometimes. I would have felt More comftorbale if it would not have been that crowded. But thank you anyway, I loved London and therefor it was fine.

    My locker wasnt accessible due to the beds as the room was very Tony, bathrooms weren't nice, the atmosphere was strange in the hostel. Very noisy at night, everybody wanted to stay on its own. But, it is perfectly located and therefore ok for one night.

    Das Hostel ist nicht weit vom Kings Cross entfernt und hat somit eine gute Lage die zu jeder Tages und Nachtzeit zu erreichen ist. Im Hostel kommt leider keine Atmosphäre auf, die Mitarbeiter sind eher langsam und die Zimmer super! eng. Lampe, Steckdosen, USB-Anschlüsse sind aber am Bett vorhanden. Die Toiletten war zwar sauber, aber ständig verstopft!

    Die Zimmer sind winzig, man hat kaum Platz seine Taschen irgendwo hinzustellen oder sich hinzusetzen. Richtig sauber war das Bettzeug auch nicht und die Badezimmer werden immer in den Morgenstunden gereinigt, wenn alles Leute aufstehen. Außerdem ging während unseres Aufenthaltes mehrmals der Feueralarm an, ohne dass gesagt wurde, was los ist. Ich kanm dieses Hostel leider nicht weiterempfehlen.
