The room was ok although really cold. Toilet and the sink were in different floors, which was difficult. The kitchen was horribly untidy and disgusting. It smelled like weed everywhere. The location was the only good thing.

The kitchen and living area were very dirty and no one cleaned them during my stay. Similarly bathrooms. Besides, the number of bathrooms for such a large hostel was not enough.

Worst night sleep ever! The room was situated above a restaurant called 'buddies'. It was open the whole night with people starting fights and cars beeping throughout. It was still going on at 0700! The room wasn't anything special and was boiling hot. Beds were uncomfortable. No where to put bags or clothes. And had to leave the entrance for the kitchen. If you don't plan on sleeping or staying in the rooms for much of the night then this would be ideal otherwise look elsewhere!

The value for money was clear but even so the kitchen was horrible the floor was so sticky that and nothing felt clean. You had to hire cutlery and plates and pots which was not clear when we booked and was a further £10 deposit which seemed silly because the kitchen was so dirty anyway. It was a great location but you get what you pay for.

Perfect location - right in town and overlooking the sea. There were 6 of us who stayed in a 6 bed hostel. Everything you need for a short weekend away. Restaurants and shops nearby. Room was clean although shower was a bit rubbish. You could have a basic quick shower but the water supply wasn't that great. I would definitely stay here again.

Unbeatable for its price and location. However, you have to expect some draw-backs, e.g. there was only one toilet in the corridor and the sink for washing hands afterwards was only back in the room.

Staff were friendly and helpful, bed was comfortable, room and bathroom were good (although room was up more stairs than I thought possible for one building and each floor has at least one or two doors to go through between stairs, so a bit of a mission when you're on the top floor) but perfect place if you're just after somewhere cheap and comfy to crash. Amazing location. Only real complaint is no bin in the toilet of an all female dorm, which wasn't ideal (because, y'know, periods)

My partner and I stayed in a twin for one night and it was reasonable. Room had two small single beds, no funature in room. No towel in small bathroom, there was soap. 24 hour cheap restaurant next door, hostel reception closed early and few people about, no atmosphere. near a pub. Located in central Bright and 20 minute walk to train station and near the beach. Only one heater in room and not working at night, so cold in December-March.
