This is my first experience of hostels in Britain and its been brilliant. We stayed here for 3 nights in a 10 bed dorm and loved it. The staff are friendly and helpful. The place is clean and comfy with wifi throughout and access to computers, TV and games. Breakfast is a snip at £2.50 for cereals, toast, fruit, scones... More

I have stayed here twice and have had completely different experiences. First the positive: staff were absolutely lovely and my first (private) room was great, which was the reason I booked for another stay. My second stay here was less than impressive. I was given a room of a completely different standard - old, tired, with crumpled bed linen and... More

Very centrally located and clean. Lot of rules (like you can not stay in the dorms during the cleaning hours 11-14.00), but still I liked this hostel a lot compared to the giant, but spiritless Smart Hostel Brighton beach that I stayed before. Dorm rooms here were comfy, well wifi'ed and very welcoming (check out my pic:). It felt kind... More

Hi Thank you for your comments and ratings. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We close the dormitory rooms down, so we can clean the rooms.

Had a brilliant 3 night stay for Wildlife festival. The hostel is really lovely with great staff too. Lovely feel to the place with the bonus of an outdoor terrace where we ate our breakfast each morning in the sun. Rooms and facilities were excellent and location perfect too. Definately coming back next year.

This hostel was fantastic, easy to find and a short walk from pretty much everything. Kipp's was super clean, comfortable and had everything you need. Even a mini fridge and a safe in the rooms. We noticed they had laundry facilities which we didn't need to use but thought it was great, and a communal kitchen with use of your... More
