Uncomfortable atmosphere, terrible smell of wet socks, cigarettes and sweat in our dorm. We were two girls staying in a 12-bed dorm with really strange occupants and no lockers(!) so we felt really unsafe. There was also a lot of noise from the street outside and since we had to have the window open the whole night (in March!) due... More

This was literally the worst place I have ever stayed in my life, and I have slept on bags of nuts in open barns before! On a serious note, read the reviews. They are all true. We were on the top floor, and I would have thrown myself out, but for the fact they don't allow the windows to be... More

1. Cleanliness -or lack thereof. EVERYWHERE. 2. Overflowing sanitary bins in both the top floor bathrooms. 3. Mouldy, grimey showers that leave water puddles everywhere, as well as a push to start which lasts all of ten seconds. 4. Pillows so thin you may as well not have one. 5. Claims of two large spacious cooking areas .. One has... More

Yes, Journeys seemed to be falling apart in places - including the door locks, and the luggage storage. And yes, the dorms are barracks cramped to the fullest (albeit with curtains effectively granting the bunk-beds some privacy). However, according to a friend of mine who lived in Brighton, all hostels in town are like this :) At the end of... More

The people at the hostel were very cool, a bunch of new friends. The facilities were clean and daily cleaned. The staff were super helpful, and very reliable. They helped when I moved out a lot, and quite fun. Great location, conveniently placed by St Peter's Church and close to Brighton station.

I think we might have gotten lucky with our room. We stayed on a top floor 6 bed mixed room. It was mostly fantastic, I never had to wait for the loo and although the showers were a bit pants, they are fine and hot. Obviously it was a bit awkward with some of the strangers and we very drunkenly... More

After having read reviews on here before our stay, we were expecting the worst, but I had no problem with this place. Toilets and showers were reasonably clean, staff quite friendly, no trouble with fellow guests and ideal location. The room was quite smelly most of the time, though we couldn't tell if this was just how it was or... More

I was massively worried when I read the reviews on here. I took 18 lads on a stag and booked here through amazing weekends. We had the room of 18 which are basically bunk beds stacked on each other but it was great fun being a room with all your mates and it was good laugh. I think people are... More
