Essential info

A historic courthouse in King’s Cross is now home to this lively backpackers hostel

London Calling! Clink78 is a lively backpackers hostel set in an old courthouse where punk band The Clash once stood trial. ClashBAR hosts live music and DJs in our basement, taking its name from the famous anarchists. Sleep in an authentic prison cell or chill out in the original courtrooms of this grand Victorian building. Clink78 is a real slice of British history brought up to date with fun and colourful interior design.

Find the hostel in King’s Cross, a buzzing cultural quarter and London’s main transport hub. Emerge from the train station and we’re just 10 minutes’ walk away! Get full directions here.

Clink78 has a great location The most important thing for someone who was for the first time in London like me is that Clink78 has a great location - 10 min from King’s Cross station, so I could easily get to the all attractions in the city. It was very clean considering the high volume of visitors that stayed here. Don’t miss the Courtroom - warm and quite place during the day, but this is the cinema room also, with a witty guy who plays the movies. :) I will always have memories of this place.
