Perfect place for adventurers...kitchen is always open, any time...very clean!! And owners really care about people!! Best place in Brighton!


A warm clean, perfect place to stay in Brighton


Great room, very clean and nice. The only thing I missed was a bed lamp for reading before bed. Communal areas were also kept nice and tidy. Breakfast was good and with that included in the price that's excellent value. The best part was the staff that were very friendly and helpful, much appreciated! Overall great stay and would definitely go there again!

I had a great Stay in the Seadragon backpackers. Great Location next to the ocean and Close to the main Shopping streets. The rooms are very clean, friendly, lovely decorated and spacious. A very clean kitchen with many facilties and free breakfast till 11am! is available. The only think I missed were lockers, but as I felt very secure in the hostel, this is only a small remak. Definitly one of the best hostels I've stayed in the UK.


Great small hostel, perfectly located off sea front on a quiet residential street. The 4 bed room was very comfortable, really friendly and helpful staff! Kitchen is well equipped and breakfast was just great!


Very clean place, bathrooms were cleaned every morning, well equipped kitchen with some basic ingredients available. Didn't have wifi for the first 2 days which sucked and the "common" area is really just 2 couches across from the reception desk. Pretty basic but what was there was good and clean.

Hi and thanks for taking the time to write about your stay. Our WIFI issues were caused by a faulty router - this has now been replaced so there is no further problem. We'd like to apologise that you experienced issues with it. Our lounge is small compared with other hostels! If a guests priority is to have a huge lounge then we'd recommend not booking with us! In addition to your description we have a smart TV, books plus travel books, board games, corner seating. Plus downstairs, more seating


A really nice little hostel, really clean, comfy beds and great value for money. For £20 a night I was in a room with just 3 others and got breakfast included (some cereal toast and eggs but not bad). It's just a little walk to most of the main spots in Brighton so really good location. It's quite a small hostel and a friendly atmosphere so a nice place to meet people and chat.


Seadragon was a bright and clean hostel with friendly staff. Free breakfast and towels were a wonderful bonus and it was nice that it was a quiet place.

Very good hostel. Positive points: very clean and organized, good showers, free breakfast and nice staff. Negative points: (i) lacks plugs, lamp and shelf for each bed (the plugs are far from each bed, especially the top ones); (ii) it does not organize nothing related to nightlife, but that's usual in England.
