I was staying at this hostel with my girlfriend for 2 nights. The staff was nice and we really liked the chilled and down-to-earth vibe there. We got a tour through the building which I - personally - liked a lot. Other pluspoints are the daily events the hostel organizes to bring their visitors together (cocktail nights, spanish food evenings... More

Very impressed by Kipps. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The facilities were decent and the whole place was very tidy and clean. It is in a great location in Brighton. The courtyard was a lovely suntrap and was a great little place just to sit and chill. Very good value for money and I would recommend staying here.

I stayed at Kipps with a friend for one night whilst in Brighton, and we weren't disappointed. The price of one bunk bed was rather inexpensive (about £13) and towels, shampoo and soap were all provided. The beds were comfortable and there were various toilets on our floor (one in our room, shared with 8 others) to avoid clashes. Everything... More

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
