Home Brighton
Reviewed July 17, 2011

Stayed in the 15 bed dorm for a hen do with only 11 of us in there but it was more like a corridor with bunks. Very cramped and would certainly not want to be in the room with strangers. Only a couple of the lockers in the room were working. Then I found a bed bug in my bed and one of the others woke up covered in bites. The staff on reception said they'd had pest control in the previous week but it couldn't have worked. Would only stay here again if Very poor and very desperate. Steer clear is my advice.

Where do I start? Stayed for 3 weeks whilst waiting for home buy to finialise in Brighton. Placed in a 18 bedded room. It stank. Bedding Questionably clean.......Found a used (yes i didn't look that closely) condom down side the of bed and promply told staff to please remove it. they thought I was kidding! "who would be doing that there"!!!!!!!!! On a happy note, some interesting charecters and drunk students.....The bathrooms were clean (thanks to one lady who constantly seemed on the move) Annoying that the Showers were on a timer in which you had to constanly press a button after a few minutes. It needs air conditioning and less beds in the rooms. just a money spinner for those who have little and dont mind the mess and squalid bunk beds. kitchen was a biohazard and tiny. Staff appeared quite friendly and prices are fairly cheap.
