My name is Es. Many advantages to this hostel are already mentioned on and on : the central location, the facilities, the value for money... What I retain from my rather long stay at Kipps, moving from London to Brighton and trying to keep the price down, was the serene environment they created. The small lounge and its back room with two computers giving web access and toys to spend a good time between friends. I enjoyed the guitare in the relaxing space by the kitchen. Cosy memories I will keep ; it still kipps :)

Room Tip: I was in room 7 if I remember well with its en-suite bathroom but a friendly chat with the receptionist should sort all this out.

I stayed here three nights in a private room and was really satisfied with my stay. The room was tidy, modern and felt secure and the location is SUPER central. The walls and roof in the room felt quite thin and noisy but you definitely get value for money!

Staff are super helpful and friendly. It's in a great location at a good price. We were in a shared mixed dorm which was very clean however could of done with an extra mirror in the shared room. The shower was average but at least it had hot water unlike the previous hostel we'd been in. We'd definitely stay here again for a short visit!

Stayed 1 night in a private double, many more facilities than expected of a hostel - TV, Bluetooth speakers, safe, tea/coffee, ensuite shower and loo and second basin. Looked clean, smelled clean, felt secure, plenty of electrical sockets, polite, helpful staff. Couldn't have asked for more. Thank you. Will definitely be staying again.
