Clashbar: our late-night hostel bar

Clashbar is the heart of our hostel’s social life: a cool, welcoming space with DJs, games and quiz nights, and good value drinks. We often have live bands playing here too… if you’re in a band yourself, check out our Stay & Play scheme!

Clashbar is open til late down in the basement at Clink78, but Clink261 guests are welcome too.

Clink78’s old police cells have been converted into two-bed rooms, but maintain the original features (except… you can get out when you like), making them an affordable but very unusual place to stay in central London!
