Though the staff was really friendly and helpful, our room was on the third floor of a rickety firetrap. The room felt filthy and drafty, and we didn't have any direct access to community rooms or wifi. Though it was directly on the beach (and over some nightclubs still blaring music at 7am) it was seriously overpriced for what it... More

It's a hostel, it's cheap. After reading reviews I was expecting the worst. It isn't as bad as made out, obviously it's not the best but you can have a good night sleep. The people in our room were lovely and the staff were very cheerful and friendly! Would definitely stay here again. Also it is so close to the... More

the kitchen was awful, the rooms and hallways were tiny, the rooms weren't very clean,and it was very noisy. I slept in it and that was it. But it was what I was expecting for the rate I payed. If you want to getdrunk And party this is the perfect place to stay

It's hard to think about what was good about this place, the money we saved on the rent might quickly be used up by fancy cafe costs which are required to recover from the atmosphere. Totally confused as to why all the social areas close at 9pm, leaving me to sit on the stairs to catch up on work in... More

After reading the reviews we were apprehensive to say the least, but we figured a few nights can't be that bad. And it wasn't. The "reception" area and layout are definitely sketchy. We had to walk around to a different entrance to get to our rooms, which meant no WiFi access. The stairways smelled and were cramped. However, the actual... More

My friend and I were attending an event in Brighton and needed a cost-effective place to spend the night. Seafront hotels were out of the question so we considered hostels. I made our reservations through hostelbooker.com. The customer service was deplorable. Be careful if you need to check out early: reception doesn't open till 9 AM. We got lucky that... More

This hostel is never going to get great reviews, but look: if you need a place to put 9 blokes on a Saturday night after a stag do, then give them a ring. They were willing to negotiate on price and yep, the room we got was a bit dodge, but we just passed out and bailed next morning to... More

me and 3 friends stayed here over the weekend and paid £20 pp per night which was a reasonable and the cheapest price in Brighton. Of course you expect nothing great for what we paid and honestly for our age group and for the reasons we were down there, we couldn't ask for anything more then what we got! we... More

Seriously overpriced. Staff wouldn't take multiple transactions for a group as they couldn't be bothered - in their own words. The room was disgusting, most of the ceiling was covered in mould, the beds still had left over wet wipes on them from previous guests cleaning their faces. The floor was filthy, the bathroom was torture, and all for £30... More

Some things in life should never have a chance to exist. This hostel is one of them. After seeing my mother’s face after she checked in I knew it would be bad. She said it was really bad. My sister said it was terrible, but I could never imagine it would actually be THIS BAD?! By far the worst accommodation... More
