    Great hostel! This place is about 5 minutes from the beach and has lots of shops close by. They offer free breakfast and have cooking facilities. They're very secure, with the door code changing daily and having key cards stored on your phone. I also really liked that they update a what to do in Brighton list daily so you can find fun events there. Definitely recommend staying here!

    Decent enough for a couple of nights. Staff were friendly and the kitchen is stocked very well. Close to the beach, and a high street, which is always a plus!

    The bed was comfortable and seemed to be clean, also before our stay, the contact worked well, I always received a very quick and friendly response. The hostel is small but could be cosy. However, our room was not clean and there was litter under the bed. The bathroom ran out of toilet paper on two evenings and there was no new paper anywhere. The kitchen was not clean so we preferred not to try the breakfast. Therefore we did not feel very comfortable overall.
