Extremely dirty, hair on my pillow, a used tissue in my bed, I'm sure the linnen was not changed. Disgusting. Three bunk beds, old, structure so noisy that it woke me up with every turn. No curtains on the beds like it shows in the pictures, no privacy. The shower was flooded, hair everywhere. Hair in the sink. Toilettes so disgusting, I rather turned around and walked away. Difficulties with checking in due refurbishment works. No alcohol licence, but own brought drinks not allowed either

Best Hostel in Brighton staff helpfully long term patrons are trust worthy cleanliness is the best I have seen I thought Sobo was clean but here the staff are constantly on the go. If in brighton and need a hostel stay at Journeys Hostel, first then try other places I can guarantee you will be back at journeys...

I was booked to stay and ended up cancelling a little over 24 hours before because I heard horrible stuff and didn't want to risk it. Brighton is limited for good hostels unfortunately.

3 bunk beds high! Very close quarters and cramped dorms. Individual powerpoints. Each bunk had own storage shelf for luggage but nothing lockable. Toilets separate from showers is good, toilets are a bit mank and showers were ok but too hot! Free luggage storage and basic brekky. Atmosphere great in bar/common area and staff really friendly. Overall good location and good for partying

Had long stay residents up to 3 months so rooms stank of feet and were filthy. Shower floors flooded and stained toilets with no soap. We didn’t shower as we didn’t want to catch a fungal infection. Arrived back second night and came back to find people in our bed, hostel had removed all our stuff from the bed and given beds to someone else. Were given other beds but hours later were woken up as we had been given someone else’s beds, drama ensueud! Horrible experience, DO NOT STAY

This takes dirtiness to the next level. Hair on pillow case on arrival, room constantly stank, showers which flood. Decided to leave one night early.

This was the worst hostel any of the 7 of us have ever stayed in. The 18 bed rooms were stuffy and it's necessary to leave the window open to the noisy street. There's better places to stay for the same price. At least the staff were nice.
