Description

Clink261

Clink261 can be found within a former Student Union building in central London. Renowned for its relaxed and welcoming vibe, the hostel first opened its doors over fifteen years ago. Time sure does fly! It feels just like yesterday that we said hello to our first guests. Our smallest hostel has come a long way since then, but it’s still got that laid-back atmosphere that backpackers love.

Staying at Clink261 feels a bit like coming home – with friendly staff, comfortable sofas and regular movie nights, it’s a welcoming place to return to after a day of city exploration. The old Student Union building brought to life with cool Britannia interior design, is just a five minute walk from King’s Cross Underground. A location that’s hard to beat!

From physical distancing meaures to cleaning with increased frequency, we’re doing what we can to make sure Clink261 is clean, safe and fun for all our guests. We’ve levelled up our safety measures, if you fancy a bit of light bedtime reading check them out here.

Great Location

It is really close to Kings Cross, which covers a good number of the metro lines so it's quite easy to get to where you need to go. If you are up to walking, it is only 20 minutes to the British Museum, and...
