Clink78 is good, a little disorganised with the back office and the staff could be more present when a visitor arrives. Otherwise breakfast could be warm and cooked as opposed to cereal and toast. Clean and tidy

Clink78 is supposedly a old prison, that has been renovated and used as a backpacker hostel. The hostel is huge with hundreds of backpackers. If you want to live in a prison with hundreds of other people, stay here. I stayed in a basement room without windows, just like you'd expect convicts to live. One male and one female bathroom for 50-60 people, again just I'd expect in a prison. The beds are solid and firm, but very narrow and cramped on top of each other with. If you are unlucky enough to sleep between two loud snorers, as I was, good luck with your sleep. There is a bar in the basement that plays loud music, but unless your room is adjacent to the bar, you won't have a problem. The breakfast is basic continental (toast, cereal, a watered-down orange juice, coffee/hot chocolate, cheese sticks) - you can have as much as you want, but there is no fruit, eggs, or croissants. The staff is young and nice, and the hostel is a nice place to meet other young backpackers

My daughter and I stayed one night in a private twin bed room with en-suite shower and toilet. The checking in process was quick and easy, the staff friendly and helpful and the room clean and of a good standard. I was probably the oldest person in the entire building (56) as the other guests all appeared to be in their teens / early twenties (not a problem if you don't mind looking like the oldest swinger in town). I would definitely book again to stay at Clink 78 again as it is central and economical. It did what it said on the tin!
