I have been in Kipps during 2 weeks, in a dormitory shared with 9 more people. It is totally clean, quiet and safe. The staff is nice and always available to help the guests. The daily events allow the guests to meet each other and to create a friendly atmosphere.

I made my way down to Brighton just before Christmas and out of all the hostels I've stayed at, this is by far the most welcoming and comfortable! As soon as I entered the building, the staff were so helpful, they helped me with my luggage up the stairs to reception and checked me in straight away. I stayed in... More

I was attending an event at Brighton University and booked well in advance being 'a poor student'. As a result, I got excellent rates but was very nervous, having never stayed in a dorm or hostel previously. I need not have worried. I would have like an accessible 'list of rules' in advance - maybe a consideration for the owners... More
