The hostel was terribly dirty and the 18 person dormitory i slept in only had one really small room. It smelled awefully inside. The facilities were horrible, dirty and two of the three bathrooms were closed because they were broken. This hostel is embarrising and i dont understand that they dare to ask money for this.

I was really impressed with the welcoming atmosphere. Staff were really friendly, and i felt very safe during my stay. The only thing that was needing attention was the showers. Some of them weren't working, and the ones i used on the 1st floor were quite hard to wash under as the head was so high on the wall. That being said, i would definitely come back!

Was ok but not really quite a kitchen. Expected something a bit more. Toilets/ showers were dirty. Common room facilities were good but not big enough for the number of people staying there. Location best thing!

The best part about Journeys was the friendly staff! It was my second time staying there, and I had a great time :)

Very impressed with the price and the staff were very pleasant, but very disappointed with the facilities specifically the toilets and showers. The toilets where very small, if was very difficult to maneuver yourself in and out of the cubicles. There were also 2 toilets on the first floor which were out of order the whole time, if these were working it would of made a huge difference. I felt the shower room which had shower curtains was disgusting the smell of damp was awful, new ones needed!!

Nice visit. I had 7 bed bug bites . Did a inspection of bed and monitoring trap and could not find any evidence so may be a very early stage of infestation.

Journeys lacks basic security the front door isn't locked and guests are required to wear wrist bands to show that they are staying there. Also, guests can arrive 24 hours a day, a number of guests arrived very late in the night waking myself up due to the level of noise. The staff were some what helpful, but were very sarcastic and rude when I asked about visiting seven sisters. Journeys is a party hostel, affecting how much I slept. The toilets and showers are mixed gender, dirty and broken.

Decent hostel. Bathrooms are usually not that clean but that is more due to the fellow hostelers rather than a lack of cleaning. Set up is good. Beds have curtains. While there are no lockers - my stuff felt safe.

You must clean the walls. I don't want to think about what filth was on them. Also you could benefit from updating your bathroom and shower facilities greatly.

Conveniently located party hostel, close to music venues and the lanes and an easy downhill walk to the train station (getting back is somewhat steep with luggage).

Worst hostel I've been to on my tour through the UK. Room was clean (female dorm, 12 beds) but way too small for all the backpacks and it felt more like being on a boat than in a bed. The showers and especially the toilets were horrible compared to other hostels. One of the male staff members was insulting a girl trying to get in the hostel in front of the guest. Breakfast was okay. So yeah, don't go there if you can afford better. Brighton itself was a really nice city though.

A very nice hostel and a warm atmosphere. Also a very nice common areas where you can get drinks for very good price. Also nice staff, friendly and helpful. Room was nice and clean. The area/location is also relatively ok - a little bit loud because of the main street running by, but overall a very good hostel. Would definitely recommend!

Tiny kitchen and disgusting washrooms but friendly staff and great location.

Possibly the worst hostel I have stayed in. My room smelt like feet, the showers are not built to withstand any water therefore the water was leaking into the carpet outside the bathroom and hence into my room. I stayed for 4 nights and would not recommend anyone to stay here for more than 1 night! I paid over £25 a night (due to a music festival being on) and felt that I definitely did not get value for my money. Only positive quality was the location.
