Really great hostel with a friendly atmosphere! Kevin was extremely helpful and has some great recommendations, will be back in the summer time without a doubt!

This was quite a nice hostel - the room was large, they provide a towel, and the breakfast was good. It's not right in the centre of Brighton, but the middle of town can get pretty rowdy, so that's probably a good thing! There didn't seem to be much atmosphere, but I was only there for one night, and it was winter.

Hi and many thanks for your positive review of our hostel :-) At Seadragon we are optimists all year round and consider March to be Spring not Winter! In fact, we're so desperate for sunshine that we'll take 9 degrees and call it Summer.. On the dates of your stay (A Monday night) we were 90% full, but with only 6 rooms here, if most people are out and about enjoying our awesome rowdy city the hostel can be a quiet place. The optimist in us will always see that as a positive aspect. Kevin

The hostel is in an amazing location, a stones throw from the beach, and the Pier isn't far either. It's also very near a shopping centre which has a vast selection of shops. The staff were so friendly and welcoming, we couldn't have asked for more. There was such a relaxed atmosphere, all the guests were chatty and engaging. The hostel was spotless. This hostel is amazing value for money and I couldn't recommend it more. The facilities are simple yet modern.

About as close as you'll get to a 5 star hostel.

Good hostel. Nice and quiet room. Staff were friendly and helpful on the phone. And there were plenty of oats and bananas provided for an early breakfast for Brighton Half runners.

Cosy clean place to stay, with good facilities and an informal relaxed atmosphere. I though door hooks could be provided for the toilet/shower room to hang clothing on.

Seadragon is a lovely little hostel with very accommodating staff - our stay in the private room made it feel more like a b&b than a hostel :)

Seadragon backpackers is fantastic and feels like a small bit of home comfort away from home. Everyone is very friendly and so helpfu. The majority of the time I had my room to myself this place is great for a break from your average hostep. It is cosy, clean and welcoming, somewhere you feel like you can relax. Also it is an easy walk into the centre of town it isn't hard to get anywhere in Brighton from here. There is great music nearby Walmer Castle, Green Door Store and delicious food near

I just stayed a few hours but i like this place. Especially staffs, they all were smiling and try to help travellers anytime. I think only one inconvinience is location. I think it's a bit far from brighton station.

Hi and thank you for your feedback. We think we are in a great location! Within a ten minute walk of the main centre of town but still surrounded by restaurants, shops, late night convenience stores and many others. Bus stops around the corner and of course thirty seconds to the water and beautiful promenade. Whilst it's true that you can choose accommodation closer to the station, with that comes the extra noise from late night revelers and most likely higher rates :-)

I liked it so much the first time I came back on a repeat trip to Brighton. Slept like a baby on a soft soft bed. Kevin remembers everyone that comes through, because he's awesome like that.

Me and my friends stayed there for two nights. The staff was super nice and gave us loads of advice of going around in Brighton. We liked it a lot especially the lounge, so nice to chill out and talk with friends.

Friendly staff, SUPER comfy beds, a small sitting room. It's a bit difficult to get in to the shower in the place, with one bathroom/shower on each floor for two rooms each. Great kitchen facilities. It's good enough that there were a lot of people staying long term.

Great place. Rooms are quiet and clean, mattresses are comfy, dorms also have seating areas + shelving which is useful. Kitchen has everything you need plus breakfast stuff is always supplied. Bathrooms on each floor kept clean, good water pressure. Staff were very helpful, manager is nice, overall no complaints. Would stay again.
