I had the pleasure of staying here with some friends over the magnificent “Brunswick Festival” weekend (great place to pick up some sunnies for the Brighton rays). In the run up to our trip we had read some slightly mixed reviews but any preconceptions were quickly dispelled by the friendly staff who greeted us on our arrival. It is true... More

My friend and I stayed here for one night and that was enough to haunt us forever. We shared with a fair few others, which was fine but I do think they should really look at who they are putting together. I think there are better prisons than this place. Staff are rude and I think at £25 a night... More

I booked a room for 5 days with my boyfriend. It was an amazing room really big and we had every day breakfast voucher for free. The staff working for the breakfast was really kind and nice. The people from the reception was really good as well. We really felt confortamble. Really clean hotel and super organized. The hotel was... More

The hotel is average at best but was adequate to serve the purpose we required of it. However, shortly after coming back to the hotel room from some celebrations in Brighton that night (not drunk hooligans as you may be thinking), the fire alarm went off. The one in our room had been activated, some deodorant or something had been... More

This place was terrible from the moment we walked in. We paid over £440 to stay in an 8 bed dorm which looked like a prison bunk room. Included free with our room was air conditioning which came from the window pane being broken but unfortunately it didn't stretch to giving us any towels. We asked about towels and we... More

This is a hostel, and not well maintained, at that. The exterior is not encouraging when you arrive, and you immediately begin to to consider the options if the vibe continues inside. While the reception guys are OK, the vibe is that whatever you booked, there will be extras - £20 deposit for a key, +5% if you pay by... More

I stayed during a weekend in Brighton and I chose this hotel to spend The night. Despite The staff at reception was very kind, i got quite upset at my arrival. The location of The hotel is more than perfect, and I wanted to surprise my boyfriend with a room with sea view. I was told previously by email that... More

We stayed at this place as a booking through a stag company, and after reading reviews of the place we were skeptical, however as a low cost place to get your head down it served a purpose. We were told by the booking site that it would be 100 cash deposit but when we arrived that had gone up to... More

After reading some of the reviews I was dreading staying here. We booked this hotel to stay after the London brighton bike ride. I had a double room and my friends had a room for three. Both our rooms were perfectly fine and considering we stayed out late and didn't get to bed til 4 am I had a great... More

Booked a 12 bed dorm for a night for a stag do. Staff were impressively responsive and helpful beforehand, by phone and email. The hostel itself was fine - seemed clean enough, not noisy, no undesirables hanging around. In short: it had beds, which we successfully slept in for a few hours. It is a good half hour walk from...
