It is a nice place to stay where you can meet a lot of young people. Beds are very comfortable and bathrooms are cleaned every morning. Staff at the reception seemed helpful. Don't store your bread in the baskets downstairs in the kitchen... mine got eaten by some people

The location is great. The Hostel offers a good breakfast for only a few pounds. they do not check the fridges for stuff that needs to be thrown out.. There is barely space in the fridges left. had a nice stay right close to the sea


Great location and accomodating staff! I was able to extend my stay and keep my same room and bed!

They were amazing and super nice. The laundry service was good and cheap. We met some great people here, it is a place that fosters people meeting each other. The majority of the hostel hung out together. It was still a quiet enough place to sleep well


Showers whent hot and cold.but atleast it was clean.no wifi either.only avalible in groundfloor area?


I booked on hostelworld to stay at the SoBo House in Brighton but was actually in the Brighton youth hostel since it is the same exact thing. It had nothing to do with the pictures shown for the SoBo guest house on hostelworld. A fraud. Will never go back there.

The rooms were hot. Rooms had lockers and towels could be rented. Location is near many bars and near the beach


We stayed here as a group of 11 in a six bed dorm, four bed dorm and with a bed in the 16 bed dorm. The bed in the six bed dorm was broken meaning that two of the beds couldn't be slept in. We were supposed to be refunded one bed but still haven't received this despite emailing directly to chase this. The breakfast options were beyond basis and the hostel is predominately used as a halfway house rather then leisure accommodation, which isn't clear from description on-line.


Hostel was a very nice and rather peaceful place to stay for few nights. Would of stayed longer if I had more timein Brighton. Gets very full and busy on the weekends


The private room were very big and clean. Location was very good, right by sea. The staff was friendly and kind. The only thing we missed was having more cutlery. People doesn’t wash after themselves. But ladies clean the kitchen qute a lot which is good. Maybe some more knives and forks


When we got to our room there was hair over the bed and pillow when we went down to tell someone there was no on at reception. They also stated that there was 24 hour drink and snacks which where empty all the time we were there. We also couldn't get a good nights sleep because of the noise coming from the other rooms I would not stay here again.

place was cheap and the guests and facilities great.


Finding the hostel was no problem at all seeing as it was relatively close to the train station and, I also found out, just up the road from the bus stop. The accommodation itself was practical and pleasant, and the service was truly outstanding. I was not too keen on the heating though, it was VERY hot in the corridors.


I wouldn't recommend this hostel at all! We were shocked about our room which we shared with two other guys. It was dirty, smelly, the floor was broken and we found stains in our beds. And because it wasn't bad enough our roomie decided to bring his girlfriend over for the night - so actually five people on a four bedroom! The reaction of the receptionist wasn't helpful. We hadn't had breakfast there because it was simply too bad and we didn't want to end our trip like that! Never again!
