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!
