Important To Know
Wheelchair access: Limited wheelchair access (some common areas and/or some rooms).
Clink78 is an accessible building for guests who are wheelchair users. Due to the lay out of the building, guests in wheel chairs have a separate entrance into the hostel. This entrance is located down the left side of the building, along Great Percy street, opposite the Boris bikes. This is the second door on the side of the building. There is a small buzzer that guests need to press then a member of staff will come and help you in. In the hostel, we have an elevator which goes to all floors apart from our girl’s only section of the building. As our building was built over 200 years ago, we are unable to change the layout of the building to incorporate an elevator in this section. On the ground floor of the building we have a disabled shower and toilet, fully fitted with emergency alarms and handles. When making your booking with us, please can you get in touch with a member of staff in the reservations team so that special arrangements can be made in regards to your room allotment so we can give you the most accessible rooms and beds. You can contact us at the email address provided on the booking email confirmation sent.
