We stayed in this hostel for two nights. The location was very central but without too much noise even though we had a room on the ground floor. The commonarea and kitchen was very bad with restricted opening hours. The bathrooms were extremely dirty and it seemed like noone cleaned them. The was a great amount of hair in the... More

Not worth a stay, the only good part is the location close to the beach, other than that it's not a good hostel, the Hostelpoint is much better. Chose that one instead! The rooms and bathrooms aren't good in Grapevine.

Rubbish lost our booking although I had email confirmation put in different room that had bunk beds, when I booked a room with double bed, the toilet was blocked. Was given a £20 discount because of this. It certain,y wasn't worth the money

The curtain pole was broken and fell down when my friend opened the curtains. The shower head was also broken. The air conditioning was on continuously outside our room. Overall the room was clean and adequate for a girls weekend away. I do feel it was over priced for what it was but accommodation in Brighton is expensive! you get... More

So I went to the Grapevine seafront with pretty low expectations due mostly to the horrific accounts of fleas and blood on trip advisor. Don't listen!!! We had an enjoyable and comfortable stay, found the reception staff helpful and the room to be neat and clean. It had a great location and was perfect for our two night stay. The... More

If you value cleanliness do not stay at this hostel. Our room was not cleaned once over 3 nights and yet different people were coming and going and sleeping in unchanged, sweaty beds. Disgusting. Only positive was the location and the Aussie guy at reception was nice.

We stayed here for 2 nights for Brighton and Hove Pride and I can honestly say that when my friends and I arrived we were expecting the worst thing in the world. There was no need to think this at all! We were greeted by a lovely Australian guy who helped us so much, we left our bags in reception... More

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
