    Easily one of the nicest hostels I've stayed in. Spotless, airy and bright with lovely bay windows in the bedrooms, modern furniture and clean homely lounge. Incredibly helpful, friendly, chatty and down to earth staff. Excellently priced, with breakfast included. Excellent location in Hove, just seconds walk from bus stop. I would 100% stay again, and recommend to friends. 5*.

    I liked this one bc it has a homey feel but still has a hostel atmosphere. Very cleanly w/ the bathrooms and kitchen. The bathrooms aren't like public stalls, they're private, so you might have to wait or go to another floor. Very secure w/ auto locking room doors, push code at entry and lockers available in lounge. Comfy bunk beds. Friendly staff and guests. Short bus ride from the train station. Down the street from the beach and shopping center. About 15 min walk from pier.

    A bit off the beaten path, Seadragon oozes with charm! The staff helped at every turn. The facilities are clean and well maintained. If you're looking for something a bit out of the city center, look no further!

    This is a pretty solid hostel. It is within walking distance of the town, and the train station. It is also really close to the beach, There was only one bathroom for floor so there was some waiting time to use the bathroom on occasion. The bed was super comfortable and the kitchen was pretty modern and had a lot of supplies.

    Honestly had a good time until my friend brought a guy back with her. The next morning the staff told us that we were not allowed to bring guests by shouting and swearing at my us, both ridiculing and sl*t shaming her by asking what they were doing and making snarky remarks like 'you build any long lasting relationships then?'. Fair enough we might have been in the wrong but no need for this level of unprofessionalism, especially since this was a rule we were never informed of. Not coming back!
