The room was clean but plumbing needs to be sorted out in the bathrooms. Our toilet didn't flush at all in our ensure room so we had to use communal toilets. Bit annoying as we had lashed out to get a private room after months in dorms. We were a bit annoyed when we arrived at 4:30pm and were still unable to check into our room when check in time was 3. Otherwise not a bad hostel.


The worst hostel that I have stayed in BY FAR! Crowded rooms, I could feel every spring in the mattress, so many drunk people always, and because one person didn't wash their dishes, the oven was turned off for everybody for more than a day!! The bathrooms were absolutely disgusting constantly, and they had the worst food organization system, leaving the fridges to smell so rank with yellow slime in every one because of rotting food. Overall I will never go back, and tell everyone else not to.


Location is a bit far from Brighton Pier (40 min walk) , but it is easy to get a bus there. Staff are helpful but don't know much about what to do and were to go in Brighton. Love the all night food!


It was good value and a good central location. Great for just passing through on a one or two night stay. Cleanliness was generally good and staff were friendly. Would probably stay here again. Thank you.


I arrived in the reception area to be greeted by a smell of sick. The room was little better with a large patch of damp on the wall. The television didnt work properly nor did the shower. There was no bath mat in the bathroom therefore when you exited the shower the floor became a wash of water. The bed was uncomfortable and had springs digging in my back all night.
