    It served us for the one night that we needed. The Beds are a bit tight in length for tall basketballers.

    It was perfect for my needs. I am a woman on my own in my 60s and I visit my son's and granddaughter every month but it's not convenient to stay with them. It is a very large hostel and people from all walks of life were present in the eating area. But everyone kept to themselves and was respectful. The staff were lovely. I loved that my bunk was completely enclosed with a curtain, it felt safe and private. I will definitely be coming back.

    First time at any hostel - traffic noise kept me awake because no double glazing, thin and firm mattress - as I had the dorm to myself I put another mattress under mine and an extra pillow under mine and then it was comfy enough. Later when the road was quieter I got some sleep. Clean but a bit tatty / basic but very nice staff - all in all though I don’t think I’m a hostel lover and that’s no reflection on the hostel

    Very basic hostel, bit of a walk to the pier. No age limit on guests, had a few homeless looking people in the room. Booked it because everything else was full. Lived up to the other reviews.

    You get what you pay for. 24 hr reception makes the place feel secure. Rooms are super basic, we took our own pillows and sheets- would recommend doing this! The quilts looked abit grim! We had a room on the top floor so lots of stairs to climb is you have heavy luggage! It’s a long walk into central Brighton (30 mins) and cabs are between £9-12 per journey. 8 girls staying in one room was always gonna be a laugh, no noise complaints and staff seems friendly.

    The biggest let down was the facilities, the kitchen was so poorly equipped I went out for dinner rather than trying to find clean and usable utensils to cook and eat with. I was lucky to find a pan, bowl and spoon the next morning for breakfast. The room itself was clean, staff weren't very friendly throughout the stay. Atmosphere in the room was quite frosty so I tried to be out as much as possible. Overall, if you need a bed and somewhere to store your bag, this will do.

    They don’t have a working card machine and it seems like it’s been that way for awhile. If you book in a group you only get one room card which seems strange when it’s a group if three or more. We found hairs in our ‘clean’ sheets we were given upon arrival and the beds are very uncomfortable. It was fine for one night but it’s not in Brighton it’s in Hove, so don’t be fooled by the name like we were.

    Probably one of the worst hostels I have ever been. The price is kind of cheap but I wouldn’t say it’s a good value for money. There isn’t any common area where you can chill or meet other people. NO LOCKERS in the rooms. The door of my room didn’t close properly. There aren’t many toilets and the shower is a kind of storage closet. Moreover, there aren't the kind of vibes you usually get in a hostel.

    They charged me despite having to go hospital for an awful emergency so couldn't make it. No good will or decency from this hostel, they just want to make money. Won't book again
