Slightly unusual youth hostel as it is above a heritage and information centre but the usual warm and comfortable accommodation and an equally warm and friendly welcome from Carol who is a font of knowledge about the locality and also about other nearby youth hostels, including some of their history. The hostel is self-catering only but there is a cafe... More

A very well run hostel with excellent facilties in a south coast town with good swimming. A quiet alternative to nearby Brighton and a good first-stop option for foreign visitors flying into Gatwick airport, an hour away by train.

The hostel warden was very helpful and friendly. The youth hostel is in a fantastic location. There is very little free parking but car parking is free overnight but you have to remember to get a parking ticket at 08.00.

Mid summer holidays I decided to take the children away for a night. Booked a family room with bathroom for a bargain price. Was very impressed with the staff on arrival, was given a tour and settled in asking if we needed any local knowledge. Everything as I would expect in our room and bathroom. Fantastic location near to town,... More

What we like about the YHA is reflected in the Littlehamton hostel. Comfortable accommodation, helpfully located, with well- equipped kitchen and really interesting visitors. Because our family has special dietary needs to meet, self-catering is best for us and the kitchen is well appointed. As hostels go, Littlehampton is smaller than some, but the rooms are comfy and the support... More

You pay for what you get and more. Certainly converted to YHA accomodation. Well situated. Very clean; attentive and friendly service from Len. Well run and managed. Communal kitchen well stocked and tidy, as was the dining/lounge area. Rooms are adequate, en-suite shower good, and comfortable beds. An excellent family option, thank you.
