Clink78 hostel, Kings Cross

The hostel is found in what was a centuries-old court house, and many original features remain. The old magistrates courtrooms now house communal lounge areas, guests sit at pews in the TV room and some bedrooms occupy former cells. A 10-minute walk away, Kings Cross St Pancras offers rapid links to the centre of London or, for inter-railers, trains to elsewhere in Britain and Eurostar services to Paris. Budget travellers will appreciate its Zone one centrality.

The hotel was part of the Kings Cross redevelopment and opens directly on to the station concourse on one side, Pancras Road on the other.

Hotel Megaro, Kings Cross

The hotel is situated on the Euston Road, directly opposite Kings Cross Station, an unbeatable location for anyone requiring access to any of the Kings Cross or St Pancras transport links. Matisse-style artworks crawl up the outside of the hotel in a bold myriad of colours and the hotel’s interior is consistently modern: purple velvet chairs in reception; statement furniture in the hallways; high ceilings throughout and yet the boutique nature of the hotel maintains its intimacy.
