    Sea dragon is a great place to stay for its location. On the boarder of Hove and Brighton, in a more chilled out area. Perfect if you want to dip out of the action. Rooms are basic but clean, light and spacious. The hostel has bags of charm, and the staff are all fantastic. If you need a place to stay in Brighton then check this place out. Thanks SeaDragon.

    I really really enjoyed my stay here! The rooms were very cute and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was clean and very pleasant to use. The only thing that could be improved upon would be to add some lockers in the rooms and perhaps some individual lights/outlets next to the beds. Irregardless, I would highly recommend staying here. :)

    Excellent precautions for Health & Safety (COVID 19 requirements) and as always, high standard of cleanliness. Unfortunate the kitchen/lounge not permitted to reopen yet as per government guidelines; but everything else was commendable as usual (I stayed twice before). And especially, the very, very comfortable beds!

    Very Good

    The staff was very nice, it’s so hard to complain anything about this hostel, but i think i need to share my experience. I had unaccountable bedbugs bite after i lived here because they have a lot of bedbugs in the bed. I didn’t have any idea about bedbugs before so it’s the reason why didn’t ask change a room or run away. When i back home, after shower i just started having uncomfortable feeling with my bedbugs bite, then i checked the information of bedbugs. Now i’m cleaning everything.
