    Pleasant hostel, pleasant stay, though the 4 persons room and the ensuite shower-toilet was very small. The bunk beds are more like children's ones with think metal frames. I also would like to see curtains on the bed and attached reading lamp and charger.

    It was good. Nice staff. Not very clean bathrooms. Nice residents...a few crazies but you get them everywhere. A little walk away from central Brighton, but it was nice to be in quiet Hove for a change. Lost quite a bit of sleep on my last night as some roommates came in at 4 am drunk and make a ton of noise..phones going off loud etc. Nice girls, just noisy. It’s easy to make friends with other guests in a short amount of time. People are friendly.

    OK for one night. Security is generally very good- two unique passcodes (one for main doors and one for room) but with so many people coming in and out of the main doors, it's not as secure in practice. But there's CCTV at the main entrance and someone on site so I guess it's ok! Lockers for storage, but I didn't use them. My room only had one outlet, and it was under one of the bunks. This was ridiculously inconvenient, and could have been solved by providing an extension cable!!

    One of the worst hostels I've ever stayed. It's not clean, the lockers they provide are small and you have to pay for them, the structure of the place is horrible (small bathroom and toilets) One very important information everyone should know: this place isn't just for travellers (with that open and kind atmosphere that hostels usually have), there are lots of weird people that really live there. These people don't care about making noise in the rooms, for example. Don't recommend at all!

    I stayed here for a single night with a friend of mine. Female travelers should not stay in mixed rooms here, it is overall a WEIRD vibe. Walking in, its all men hanging around. The facilities are fine (read run down and slightly dirty), but as a female traveler I would never stay here alone as I didn't feel comfortable (I have stayed at about 5 different hostels, all of which I have loved and felt totally comfortable in). Would not overall recommend, but also the price is good for Hove.

    Terrible horrible staff rude obnoxious and aggressive. I was put in a room with cleaning staff the windows were broken one of the long term staying there p****d the bed. I was told by cleaning staff at 9:30pm laughing at at Comedy show I would be told to leave if I wasn’t quite. The same girl then harassed me for complaining about being spoken to BY STAFF And again threatening me She followed me around the kitchen when I was eating telling me to wash my plates trying to start a fight with me

    No security what so ever- no locker to keep important items. I think this is critical in a hostel so very disappointed. Location is about a 50 min walk from City centre but that is specified on website. Staff are friendly. The rooms are dirty- I wasn’t even given proper bedding to sleep with. The shower was filthy as the toilet and basin. I wouldn’t recommend.

    A very dirty place. Everything was covered in a thin layer of grease and dirt. Overwhelmingly bad smell. No soap in toilets, notably next to the kitchen. Showers too dirty to use. No breakfast, although we probably wouldn't have wanted to eat there. Whole hostel was cramped and dangerous feeling. There was no garden, or it was locked off, bunks were 3 high, descriptions and pictures on the website are misleading. Shall be seeking a refund.
