Only 2 plugs in an 8 person room. Apart from that it was fine.

Hostel smells, the bathrooms smell of urine and the bathroom on our part of the hostel didn't even have a basin to wash your hands.let alone brush your teeth. .There is a sink in the room but is squashed in behind the beds and impossible to access. The wifi was slower than dial up. The location is good ... however the down side is you get kept up all night with the shouting and domestics outside on the street.


It was a good stay. Perfect location, walking distance of everything. They only thing is the value of money. £30 per night for an averge hostel without a bathroom with in the room and wifi was a bit shakey.

I've really enjoyed my staying in Brighton and people at the hostel were very nice!


Had to pay quite a high price for 2 days and also had to pay for the whole weekend ( minimum2 nights ) ,comparing with other people who paid £80 for a whole week. Glad though that@ the end I was received £20 back( my warranty paid in advance) , eventually I decided to stay one more night as felt tired to travel back to London , had to pay another £10 which was cheap, indeed. Lovely staff, Laura was very nice by calling me in time with details about my arrival , was brilliant, lovely staff. X

The staff were very rude and unwelcoming from the outset. The room is very basic and completely overpriced for what it is. The window didn't close properly so the room was freezing at night. They refused to give us our deposit back because apparently we caused some leaking to the floor below using the shower, CRUMMY PLUMBING IS NOT OUR FAULT AND WE WERE ROBBED OF £40!! I strongly recommend you pay a couple of pounds more and choose one of the many other hostels in Brighton.

only one working shower only 3 toilets rooms were dirty windows wouldn't shut properly heating didn't work properly overpriced


The staff was great, and the location is excellent, even though the water in the shower was either boiling hot or freezing cold. I still advise you to go if you can't spend a lot of money in a place to sleep :)

Clean and well located, People at at the reception not really kind. I was in the 8 bed dorm in the roof and there was no wifi as in the lounge room, really poor, but good value for money.
