Very, very comfortable stay!!!
Overall a very comfortable stay!! I got upgraded from a 6-bed to a 4-bed dorm which was nice! Beds were clean and the showers and other facilities were clean too. My roommates were nice and staff was friendly as well. I slept in the basement and I heard that it could be quite noisy and stuffy. This was not the case for me as the room was very quiet and enough air was able to come in trough two small windows. USB ports and reading light above the bed were a big plus!!! Hostel was right next to a busstop and around a 10/15 minute walk from King's Cross station, so very doable. The only thing I found slightly troublesome were the strangely shaped "ladder" you have to use to get to your top bunk, it was quite difficult to go up or down them (especially when trying to be quiet) as the foot holes were irregular and pretty hard to find by just feeling around with your feet. Besides that I would most definitely stay here again!!

Centrally located, inexpensive, good on-site pub.
Terrific, central location. Our private twin room was down a fairly disused hallway, so it seemed like we had our bathroom and shower to ourselves most of the time. There's still something peculiar to hostels, however, wherein people wake up super-early and stand in the halls shouting at each other in French. Dudes, it's 3am my time. Shut the hell up. Aside from that, the Clink was great, and I'd recommend it. Oh, and the on-site bar is open until 2am every night, which is great if you haven't adjusted internal timezones yet and every other place in London seems to be closed. They were showing John Wick last Sunday, which is about all my jet-lagged brain could process.

expected better
The room was tiny (literally just a bed) and one of the outlets and the bathroom door were broken, plus our towels were visibly dirty. It was EXTREMELY loud all throughout the night which made it tough to sleep. The location was good and the common areas were nice but it was not a nice place to stay overall

love the privacy of a cell in hostel atmosphere. Wish the room has fresh air and fresh smell, instead of the remission of 'prison air"

The cost benefit you've been looking for
Click is always my first option. The location, the rooms and the staff are great. It's the best hostel you can find in the area. I've been to some really bad ones and Click is the cost benefit you've been looking for. I can't say about the large rooms, but the ones for 4 people are my favourites. The bar in the basement is fantastic, good for a pint or to join your new colleagues. I'm always staying there again.
