    Would highly recommend Seadragon's - brill location, helpful staff, comfy beds, feels secure, and all the basics covered (including towel and a 'help yourself' breakfast). Have stayed here twice and can't imagine staying anywhere else in Brighton!

    This is a lovely little hostel very close to the beach and not too far to walk from the train station. Staff were friendly and gave a quick tour of the building before I went to my room and let me know another guest using the room was arriving late so I wasn't surprised. Felt very safe as a lone female traveller getting in and out of the building using the app and coded door. Would definitely book here again

    Really loved our stay here, the only tiny gripe is the distance to Brighton centre, but honestly, for the price, we didn't mind walking half-hour here. Facilities were great, kitchen was above what we expected, added perk, dartboard!! Coffee machine was a hit + free breakfast perfect :) Rooms were really comfy too, would have prefered to made our own beds to make sure the covers were clean, but no massive issue. Not a huge atmosphere here, but you're in Brighton, go out for that :)

    This is your typical, grotesque hostel, but the most disgusting feature is the attitude of the man who runs it, Joe. Now, I didn’t know self cleaning was hostel policy, so I gave no thought to cleaning my plate. Upon discovering that I hadn’t cleaned up, Joe decided to stay 3 hours after his shift in order to have a go at me in person. He humiliated me face to face, like a schoolteacher telling off bad kid (“In my 25 years of hospitality, I have never…”) It ruined my stay and perception.
