Stayed in a backpackers for the 1st time in my life and was very impressed. Staff were amazing and welcoming. Very convenient to coach station, city centre and all amenities. Overall it was very clean. Breakfast was adequate. Bed very comfortable. Different enteretainment every evening. One suggestion - the 2 communal showers were not very pwerful, perhaps one power shower... More

The hostel was very clean. The staff were very helpful and friendly, they even made us mojitos! Great location, a short walk from the pier and lots of bars and restaurants near by. Breakfast was provided for a small charge until 10:30am Would definitely stay here again.

Came here from 5-7th March with my colleague Stef and 24 students. We were made really welcome and the staff were just great and so helpful. Our thanks go to Angela, Giovanni, Lee and Gaetan who were friendly and accomodating. The rooms were all spotless and the lounge felt like home from home. The little outside space was welcome too....

Kipps Backpackers is one of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed in. We had a double room with our own ensuite. The room was lovely and clean with all conveniences provided - including fresh towels, toothpaste, toiletries, and even complementary soft drinks in the mini bar fridge. The staff were very friendly and helpful and their events seemed like a... More

Hi Thank you for your recent review online. I am sorry to hear you found the hostel noisy, I am not sure why, as the guests were very quiet when you stayed, unless you are talking about the location and the noise from the road.? Enjoy your travels. More

A good location, friendly staff and nice atmosphere. The £80 per night price was more like hotel pricing but the cheap extras such as toothpaste etc shows they are making an effort. We were unlucky to be allocated the room directly above reception and the lack of soundproofing meant we could hear and feel the reception music day and night... More

Hi Thank you for your recent review. We are sorry to hear on your 3rd visit with us you was a little dissapointed. :( I do apologise that the music was loud from reception, when all staff are made aware that music must be turned very low after 10.30pm. I will ensure that staff are reminded about this at the... More

I love small, cozy, and well-run hostels, and Kipps Brighton was one of them. It costs slightly more than the average hostel but well worth it - you get free breakfast, nightly events, and a very hotel-like room complete with coffee makers, tea sachets, towels, toothbrush, and toothpaste which were a lovely surprise. Staff were very friendly. Great location as... More

We stayed in this hostel for one night. The room was neat and clean but we think the price of 100 Euro per night is slightly overrated for a double room. We can recommend it to travelers who love to go out for dinner and explore the city cause it's situated in the heart of Brighton and only a 5-10... More

We stayed in the 'suite'. Very cosy and comfortable. You can hear the creaking floor boards, which makes for added ambience. Relatively basic amenities if you are expecting hotel standard accommodation, but pretty good for a hostel. Definitely recommended for a short stay in central Brighton.
