About the hotel
Clink261 is a warm and welcoming hostel located in Kings Cross - London’s most well connected transport hub and its newest cultural quarter. It is a rather glamorous boutique hostel which offers an intimate atmosphere combined with a personalised service. Our hostel has a very British feel; it’s draped in Union Jacks, a picture of the Queen adorns our walls and a cosy fireplace invites you to exchange stories with fellow travellers.

We offer clean and modern facilities such as a self-catering kitchen, a chic internet corner where you can write emails, a comfy lounge to play Wii or kick back and relax in front of its huge plasma TV, a laundry and even a travel desk at reception.

Overnight stop in the Capital
Room was comfortable, clean and secure although the room I stayed in overlooked the main road leading in and out of Kings Cross, so was a little noisy.
Windows could have done with double glazing. Wi Fi access not great, had difficulty connecting on my Sony Experia smartphone, despite being given the pass code by the reception staff. As I needed to leave very early in the morning, to catch a train from Euston, I was not able to take the included breakfast, which was to start from 07.00am. It would have been good if a packed breakfast option was available, which could be ordered the night before and ready for collection on check out. I appreciate the logistics of setting this up, but maybe something to consider for the future.
Shared bathroom for boys on the floor I stayed on, was a little on the small side, and with three showers, and just two cubicle toilets, it did not leave a lot of room to dry oneself and get dressed. Bit pokey, I found.
Nice communal lounge downstairs in the basement with communal kitchen. Would have liked to see coffee and hot chocolate provided, instead of just tea and fresh milk as well as as powdered milk, sine people prefer fresh milk.
On the whole, a good stay in a very central location which was really easy to find only 5 minutes along the road from Kings Cross station. I will stay here again, as good value for money. I hope my constructive comments are taken on board at some point in the near future.

EXCELLENT VALUE IN CENTRAL LONDON
Ideal for a single man or woman staying in London overnight.
£23 for bed and breakfast in a dorm, friendly staff and clean and hygenic surroundings only 100 yards or so from Kings Cross St Pancras
Checked in at 11.30 at night, place was quiet and serene. One of the room mates had a slight snore but nothing a set of ear plugs couldn't resolve. Breakfast was continental, simple but effective. So £23 for a bed to sleep in and breakfast with friendly people, or £100+ for a travelodge with no breakfast and people who barely nod at you as they walk past you in the corridor
