I have just returned from a weekend away in Brighton, where I had a one night stay at this hostel. I will most definitely not be returning and I do not recommend. Firstly the hostel wasn't all that cheap and I feel rather conned. The place was dark and gloomy and felt very damp! the beds where poor and the... More

Possibly one of the worst hostels Iv ever stayed in. Only thing going for it is how cheap it is. Entire place smells of damp, mold and stale cannabis smoke. It's situated over a restaurant which is open late and well lit which impedes a good night sleep. There's also across the street are numerous late night, night clubs which... More

Stayed here over the weekend for a festival and it was one of the best hostels I've stayed in. All the bad reviews made me a bit nervous of what I was going to walk into but there was nothing to worry about. I can't speak for it you stay in a shared room but the private room with ensuite... More

I stayed here for two nights. And I'm kind of grateful it was no longer. The room was tiny for 8 beds. I stayed here with 7 other friends so i didnt mind on how little room there was if your a solo traveler you do not get much room at all and your very much in other people's personal... More

I found this hostel by accident and aside from being cheap, the room was actually really lovely and I met some really amazing people there. It's a good location, not too far from all the buzz in the city. The members of staff that were working on the front desk were absolutely wonderful and helpful and added bit more charm... More

This us the type of hostel that is conjured up in the minds eye of people who incorrectlty assume that ALL hostels are grim, cheap, dirty and noisy. This hostel is grim, cheap dirty and noisy. From the dirty linen and unfitted carpets to the single glazed dirty window with torn soiled curtains, this really is the worst hostel I've... More

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
