    Staff are lovely, but this place is so unclean, random stains on the bunks and my bed sheets had hair/small crumbs and dodgy looking stains. Basically looked used or not properly washed. The shower cubicle in the room had no curtain or door, so anyone coming in/out could see you. The toilet was in a cupboard and I couldn't use it with the door closed.

    It’s an okay place for a night and if you’re okay with being away from the centre but not somewhere I would expect to meet people. It’s not an overly social vibe and gave of more the sense it’s where people live not so much a visitors place.

    I wouldn't reccomend this place at all. When we were trying to find the place, we walked completely past it as there wasn't very good signage. Inside the main lobby it smelt awful. We got to our room and there were no lockers inside the room to put our stuff. It was small and cramped and the bathroom had about ten different old bottles of body wash just left by others. The people that were in the hostel made us both uncomfortable and unsafe. It seems like a community center for the homeless.

    The bathrooms are a mess, there's only 2 showers for the place one of which the door doesn't shut and the other has a ghastly damp/mould smell which makes you hold your breath it's so bad. In the room I slept in, they crammed 8 beds into a room that would usually have just a double bed in. Mattress made my back and shoulders ache so had to lieflat. Couldn't sit up in bed it was too small, and even had graffiti on the bunk above mine saying 'this hostel is a s***bucket' and I couldn't agree more

    Literally the worst service I’ve ever received in any capacity, I’ve never beheld such ignorance and rudeness from someone who is supposed to be the face of a business. It was so bad I forfeited my deposit and went to a different hotel. The atmosphere was disgusting it looked and smelled like a crack house and the man on the front desk was rude, aggressive, had no sense of professionalism whatsoever and at one point I thought he would become violent. Don’t stay here, you deserve more.

    This hostel is in Hove, not Brighton as it says. This means a 15 minute walk into Brighton. The facilities are so bad at this place and is actually the dirtiest hostel I’ve ever stayed in. The staff are rude and horrible to deal with. 100% I would not stay here again.
