Really liked staying there, the room was clean, as well as the bathroom. There was tv, the wifi was good. The staff was helpfull and frendly. The breakfast is really good, with view of the sea. It is a bit far away from the city center (2.7 km) but i think it pays off. The only thing missing was a... More

After reading some of the reviews of this hotel 1 of our group of 7 decided to cancel and it is such a shame as there were no problems at all. Maybe the hostel side is different but if you book a private room you have a key card to access the rooms. We were on the 2nd floor and... More

I almost cancelled this booking after reading the bad reviews but I'm very glad we didnt. As a mid 30's couple we were very pleased with our twin, ensuite room (219). I'd say its the equivalent of a nice 2 star. The room was clean, had good facilities (lcd TV, Kettle and tea/coffee stuff, nice Bathroom with powerful enough shower... More

I stayed here for one night whilst down in the area. There's no parking at the hostel, however plenty of parking on the streets and oinly about £5 for 24 hour parking. It was very basic but that's what I was after somewhere just to rest my head instead of having a 3 hours drive home the same day. It... More

I don't normally write reviews. But I think people should know. BEDBUGS! I've been itching like crazy the last few days because of these. I just hope that none have travelled with me. Firstly location of hostel was in Hove not Brighton which meant a good 30-40 minute walk into Brighton. The taxi from Brighton train station to hostel was... More

I would say you get what you pay for HOWEVER you clearly don't... at £25 a head we were not expecting miracles but we were given a room in the basement, when you opened the window we were greeted by a lovely brick wall. The 'Hotel' itself is a £8 taxi ride to the pier. Breakfast wasn't edible.. butter was... More

This hotel was £25 pp and we stayed in a 10 man dorm - we didnt expect fluffy white towels and a four poster bed but having stayed in many hostels around the country we thought that this would be at least adequate for our one night stay. Our 10 man dorm was in the basement floor, we did not... More
