Getting from King’s Cross & St. Pancras (Eurostar) Underground and Train stations:

At just 10 minutes’ walk away, the closest Tube/Underground/Subway Station to Clink78 is King’s Cross St. Pancras.

There are a lot of exits from the station, but don’t panic! Whichever exit you take, just make sure that Euston Road is in front of you and King’s Cross and St. Pancras Stations are behind you.

Cross Euston Road and then take a slight left down Gray’s Inn Road (you’ll pass a Tandoori restaurant on your right – but don’t let the delicious smells lure you in just yet!) Continue along this road and after about 5 minutes you’ll see our smallest hostel, Clink261 on your right. Not long to go now.

Carry on walking up Gray’s Inn Road. When you reach a set of Zebra Crossings, turn left down Acton Street. Walk along Acton street for a couple of minutes and you’ll reach a junction. Clink78 is right in front of you. It’s a large Victorian Courthouse building, so you shouldn’t miss it!
