    Cheap and cheerful ! The staff sometimes let you stay in a dorm with fewer beds than you have paid for.Quite often there is some free food available in the evenings -cakes ,bread ,pastries My only gripe [this time] was the fact that there was no bath or shower in the en-suite,and how busy it was at reception at 9pm on a sunday night -perhaps a sign of success !

    Brigton is lovely place but hostel is so depressing. Place is not close to city centre, in the night time hostel around is so quite. I don't feel in safe. Breakfast and close the beach is positive things. And staff is helpful. For the stay 1 or 2 night it's all right.

    The staff were all very nice but the hostel felt dirty, the beds were not comfortable and there was very little space. The location was also a bit out of the way.

    You get what you pay for. The bedding is provided on arrival & you need to make your ownbed and insert the duvet and pillow cover by yourself, which is not convenient if you arrive late (in a room with other people sleeping) and tired. The breakfast was OK: bread, cereal, milk, tea, juice (from squash I guess), toast (self service) and cake; no fruits. The checkout is also done independently from the reception, which was not clear. It is not in front of the sea as I think it says in the website.

    The hostel has a feeling of a homeless hostel with many guests staying long term. The staff are friendly and seem to try there best but don't come with expectations of it being a 'travellers' hostel as it's more a living hostel for those who can afford cheap rent

    Both the staff and guests were friendly, however, the atmosphere was bad and there was a heavy feeling of depression throughout the entire hostel. The whole place could do with a refurbishment. There are only x2 toilets and x2 shower cubicles shared between 30+ guests that were very filthy. I stayed in a mixed dormitory, and whilst the rooms were clean no one had any bed sheets or pillowcases. There were no mirrors or lockers in the rooms. Cheap but not value for money.

    terrible first night. The place is like nothing on the site. Very dirty. Put in a 6 bed Room. 3 bunks in 1 with 1.5 ft between each bunk. Like a chicken coop. The duvet and pillow are like crunchy plastic. There was no space to put any of my stuff. Ceiling flooded onto the floor at 2 Am water everywhere and We all had to change rooms didn’t sleep at all. Demanded refund and wouldn’t give it to me but did however put me in a nicer room after complaining. Don’t stay here! Staff were friendly.
