Getting from King’s Cross & St. Pancras (Eurostar) Underground and Train stations to Clink261:

The closest Tube/Underground/Subway Station to Clink261 is King’s Cross St. Pancras. It’s just 7 minutes’ walk away.

There’s lots of exits at the station – but don’t worry, you can use any one of them. When you leave the station, just make sure 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 – no curry stops yet, though; you’ve got a hostel to find!) Carry on along this road and after about 5 minutes you’ll see Clink261 on your right – look out for purple paint and a big red sign!
