My partner and I stayed for 1 night and as it was our 1st time staying in a London hostel we were a little nervous and unsure of what to expect. However, this place exceeded our expectations! We were so relieved to find that it was clean, friendly and safe. Although there was some noise outside (it is on a main road) we couldn't hear it from our dorm

Service was good. I will recommend Clink 261 to my friends and family
Nice place to stay with friendly staff and good facilities. Clean beds and bathrooms, and a simple but good continental breakfast provided
I really liked this London hostel, because it was close to the city centre and relatively cheap. Beds were clean and environment agreeable and friendly. The only problem that I had was due to my key card that didn't work well. However, this was a minor problem and I would stay at Clink261 next time
Hello Clink 261! I thought the services during my stay were very good, and the people at the reception were very nice and helpful. I appreciated that I didn't have to bring my own bedclothes. The rooms downstairs seemed very pleasant to me. However, I would've liked that there were more electrical sockets in the bedroom (or perhaps I just haven't found them!), and that the showers were cleaner. All in all : a very nice stay and great memories
