myself and a friend traveled to Brighton for few days and was recommend this hostel for what reason i dont know why location was not central at all and it had no redeeming characters so to speak. but what did make up for our experience were the people staying in the hostel. we stayed in the 20 bed mixed dorm, and were the only two females which i have to say bothered me a bit at first. Most of the men in the room were Spanish workers. (which my friend loved as she is from Ecuador and Spanish is her mother tongue) We were invited out with a group of young men who lived at the hostel for extended periods they made up for the whole trip genuine gentlemen, who saved this hostel and whole trip for us.
The hostel its self wasn't very clean not enough storage or plugs in such big rooms i had to sit in the corridor to charge my phone and i was soon told i wasn't to sit there. Breakfast was one loaf of bread and one box of cereal this wouldn't even cover the room i was in.
if you are looking for a cheap bed not fussy with location and a long walk and maybe a slice of toast in the morning this hostel is for you.
Wouldn't recommend the hostel it's self but the people that stay there seem very friendly.
