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 :)

Very bad place. The guy working there is rude. The place is dirty. It's overpriced for what it is. The windows are filthy. Bathrooms dilapidated. Avoid if at all possible.

Try not to cramp too many bed bunks into one room. It was hard moving a medium sized trolley in, and what more a larger one, leaving me no choice but to leave it at the reception area for the night.

This is a very nice hostel located close to the Brighton Pier and right in the city centre. Narrow hallways and a friendly staff. The only thing I have to put them out on is that the rooms were a bit moist, making it a bit cold at night. Also my window was facing a nightclub so the possibility of having a window open at night involves some noise. But overall a good and reasonable stay! Thanks!

Lots of noise from the bar opposite on the Friday night which made it difficult to sleep.

Narrow stairs, carpets may need replacement, friendly staff at front desk and cleaning. Excellent location near the waterfront, although some noise comes in from neighbouring bars. There are no lockers. Large bags can be left in reception area, smaller bags can be stored in the office, but may only be retrieved while the front desk is open. Or else leave them in your room.

I think the commun spaces (kitchen and living room) could be opened till later. Anyway the hostel is excellent in global terms. Thanks

Brilliant location. Mid-week stay so had 4 bed dorm to myself. Room was nice with great view of the ocean, bathroom facilities were fine. Very close to food and bars. Can be very noisy until the wee hours, even early in the week. Security is the only issue, the front door did not close at all, and the bedroom door lock was a bit loose.
