Stayed here for a cheap booze weekend. The staff were very helpful and welcoming, its seconds away from the beach and minutes from the lanes. The rooms and washroom aren't great, uncomfortable beds and not the cleanest but could of been hell of a lot worse! Basically if you want leisure then get your hand back in your pocket, if... More

We booked this hostel for a school trip with 29 children aged 13-14. When we arrived check in was quick and easy and the staff were very welcoming. However, the children were utterly horrified at the state of their rooms and it was easy to see why. The rooms were dirty, the walls were stained and I would advise anyone... More

I had been in this hostel many times and always a huge welcome from the staff. Fair price and the best location. You are just 1 minutes from the beach and 3 from the lanes. Excellent. I will come back always.

Ok, first the good points: - Check in was quick - View was nice (more on that below) Now for the bad points. - Hostel is located above a 24 hour cafe, which attracts everybody post-bar/club. It's noisy throughout the night, and the window really doesnt offer much sound insulation. Ear plugs or an elephant sedative are essential if you... More

This is without doubt the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. As we walked through the door into our 6 bed private dorm we were met with a disgusting stench. On further investigation we found the stench was coming from the sink, which was filled with sick. That’s right, actual human vomit. After a quick look into the room... More

It's well located, however the staff don't seem to understand what they are doing. We had booked a large room for 12 of us. Upon reentering the room at 3am we were quite surprised to find another random person sleeping in one of our beds, To top things off they told us to turn the light off and be quiet,... More

Went here on a rugby tour as accommodation in Brighton is surprisingly expensive. Rented out 2 dorms and a 4 bed room so we'd have rooms to ourselves. The place is a hygiene risk and a safety hazard. Sloping floors; wonky stairs; a dirty bathroom with rust and mould visible. For the two dorms woth 8 in each - just... More

Very good position and very cheap. For the rest this hostel is the hell. Dirty, smelly and run by rude and lax staff. Kitchen is faulty.....forever!!! Bathroom....never mind! I was undecided whether to stay or go home.

The staff was really helpful and the location of the hostel was good too. Really close to the beach, you just had to cross the road. Moreover, there were a lot of restaurant and pubs. Unfortunately, the windows were not that close and you could hear a lot of noise from the pubs on the other side of the road... More

Our stay started off really well, until on our second day we got a knock on the door and when we opened the door there were 3 men standing outside telling us to pack our stuff and leave the premise, with no explanation to start with. They started accusing us of throwing bottles out of the window on to the... More
