Located in London, England, the Clink78 hotel hosts guests in restored prison cells. This stylish London hotel captures both the traditional concept of youth hostels and the modern amenities fixated in modern design. The 200 year old courthouse is classified as an English Heritage building due to its front entrance, reception, 2 original courtrooms and 7 original prison cells. Guests can choose from sleeping in designer dorms featuring pod beds, private rooms, or even authentic prison cells. The hotel also features some famous sets and locations that guests can check out, including the TV lounge Courtroom where The Clash were on trial and Internet Courtroom where Charles Dickens was inspired to create Oliver Twist. A one-night stay in a cell costs around £50, but Clink78 also offers hostel options which runs at £9 per night in a dorm-room styled suite.
