    Really friendly, homely vibe. Rooms were clean, good layout and plenty of facilities. This hostel is also in a great location - 2 minutes from the sea, a co-op opposite and a 10-15 mins to the Lanes. I would definitely stay again!

    We enjoyed our stay for 2 nights here in this excellent little hostel, which feels more like a guesthouse. The manager was very helpful & friendly, and the free breakfast was perfect :) The only thing I would add is lockers in the rooms.

    Really enjoyed my stay..Arrived around 4pm, made to feel very welcome. Shown around, small, but nice and clean, with a homely atmosphere. There was a small problem sorted out efficiently by the Seadragon team, and a special thanks to John, who was all over it like a rash. I hasten to add the problem was outsde the control of the Seadragon hostel..What is a definite, when i'm in Brighton again, first port of call for lodgings and base....Seadragon.....Brian

    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. :)

    Small building but well compensated with not too many people able to stay at once. Bathrooms can get a little bit cramped if there's a full house but the bathrooms themselves were very well stocked and maintained. Staff were friendly. Located a bit of a walk away from the main tourist attractions but definitely still in walking distance of the main facilities and attractions of the city.

    Basically my main issue was with the booking of the bed. It was advertised as an individual bed in a 2 person dorm. For me with a problematic knee that told me that this room would have 2 separate beds in and not be bunks. I arrived and was told that I would be on the top bunk meaning I would have to suffer getting up and down with my knee. I explained to the guy that it said individual bed and he said that's what individual meant. It doesn't mean that at all. Individual means separate.

    There's not much choice when it comes to hostels in Brighton.. so we decided on this one. A lot of people staying in this hostel were long term residents in there later years of life 40+ so atmosphere wasn't great. Security wasn't great either - we came back to our room a couple of times and the other people staying in the room had not properly shut the door. Showers were terrible - either freezing cold or burning hot. However we did enjoy the free breakfast.
