    Lots of good things. The price. The free breakfast. The free food offered by charities. The 3 tv with one with really big screen. The fact that at night it doesn't close. So why those plastic duvet and pillow without cover? So horrible. Why this awful stress of the departure? Why should we put and know a about any code when checking out and have to pay such a high price if we check out before the reception opens forgetting to do it! Why this horrible bed in the female dorm level b?

    I stayed here around 10 years ago, when it was in the early stages of existence. On my return visit I was surprised to see a completely refurbished interior space that was a fantastic improvement. Please try to remember this is a budget hostel, and for the price you pay, everything is good value for money. There is ample hot water for showering, a large kitchen to prepare your own meals, another spacious dining area, multiple refrigerators for food storage, on site inexpensive laundry, free wifi

    With little money it could be more trendy as hostels now are trendy. The bed was not rentable. Impossible to get into. Level b. It was for a child. In fact the common areas were perfect but the bed in the room not something to rent. Beside that it is great to offer this price and hospitality in Brighton.

    The only Hostel open, a dubious entrance and an on line booking that took ages to complete made it an ominous sign. It was an annoyance that the breakfast had been rescheduled to 9 am, rather late. Like many places, maintenance and cleanliness could have been a higher priority. Having said that it was comfortable and I have stayed in a lot worse. The WiFi was good, it was absent at my next place..

    The Hostel is used as a stop gap for people in insecure employment, breakfast is £4.49 per day and the wi-fi bandwidth is not fast enough for several users to stream video at once. The duvets and pillows are made of plastic and are horrible to sleep on. If you can afford to stay elsewhere and it’s in Hove,...

    It is really-really dirty. Thought giving it a try in spite of the negative reviews - was a big mistake. The building-reception was closed at 11pm when I got there - though it was still within the check in time! Thanks God there were a few guys hanging around in the building who let me in and helped finding the person in charge. The atmosphere was creepy with many random people who were actually quite nice but looked like junkies... Happy I booked only one night and even happier not to return.

    Worst hostel ever! Super difficult to get in, Staff with limited laguage abilities, dorms packed, a roommate's bed was partly occupied by a stranger who wasn't even booked into our room, super basic breakfast, facilites not very clean, parking is two blocks away. The problem is that there's no other hostels for Brighton on the website...
