Clink78 is full of cool spaces and useful places that we reckon you’ll love:
ClashBAR: late-opening bar
ClashBAR is the social hub of Clink78. Our basement bar is a great place to meet other travellers, have a drink (great cocktails!) and maybe even a little boogie. With live music, DJs and plenty more events, you’ll find something happening at ClashBAR every night. Opening hours: Sunday-Thursday 6pm-1am, Friday-Saturday 6pm-2am.
TV & film lounge
Sometimes you just need a good movie night. You’ll find the Clink78 TV & Film Lounge – complete with comfortable sofas and a large projector screen – in one of the original, wood-panelled courtrooms. Now, who’s bringing the popcorn?
Internet & PC lounge
Got to email your mum whilst you’re away? No worries! The Clink78 Internet & PC lounge has everything you need to keep in touch (or watch funny videos on YouTube). There’s plenty of internet-access terminals (£1/30mins, £2/an hour) and free Wi-Fi to hook up your own devices. You’ll find the PC lounge in the very courtroom where The Clash stood trial. Rock ‘n’ Roll! Go ahead and admire the original features whilst browsing the internet to your heart’s content…
Well-equipped self-catering Kitchen
The Clink78 kitchen is modern, well-equipped and plenty big enough for you and all your friends (old or new)! An all-you-can-eat breakfast (coffee, tea, juice, toast and cereal) is served up from 7-10am. There’s lots of great local restaurants nearby but if you feel like cooking up a delicious, budget-friendly dinner in the kitchen then it’s available for guest use from 12pm – midnight daily.
Open-plan dining and seating area
The open plan dining area extends from the kitchen and into the basement area of the hostel. Vibrant wall art and photography gives the area a relaxed and artistic feel. Sit and enjoy your meal with friends around one of the sturdy wooden tables or find a quiet corner and settle down with a good book. There’s even board games available if a night in is on the cards!
The on-site TravelSHOP is here to help you make the most of your stay in London. If you’re after discounted tickets to top London attractions like the London Eye and the West End then the TravelSHOP is the place to head. TravelSHOP staff are always happy to share their favourite London spots too, for a more local experience.
8am – 7pm, every day of the week
Free all-you-can-eat breakfast every morning (cereals, toast, tea, coffee and juice).
Staff at Clink78 love a chat and they’re always more than happy to answer any questions about the city or help you with your stay at the hostel. Clink staff come from all over the world and speak many languages. This means you can almost always find someone that understands you when you need it most!
Running out of clean underwear? Don’t fear! Clink78 is geared up with washing machines and dryers (£4.50 per wash, £1.50 / dry) for all your laundry needs. You can even borrow an iron, if you’re feeling ambitious!
Secure key card
You’ll be given your very own key card when you check in. Love your key card and keep it safe because you’ll need it to access your room and the hostel front door!
Clink78 staff are there for you, day or night! Reception is open 24/7 so there’s always someone around if you need help.
Lots of clean bathrooms
Clink78 has plenty of showers and toilet facilities; some single-sex and others available for everyone to us. All toilets and showers have their own doors and secure locks and are cleaned regularly. En-suite rooms are also available to book if you prefer a bit more privacy.
