For the price very comfortable, clean, chic even. Nice sized room, friendly staff, very well located. Basic breakfast but nice enough. Water pressure in showers quite low but that was the only minor complaint. Would happily return again.

Hard to find anything reasonably priced in Brighton on a Summer Saturday, but this fitted the bill nicely! I went for a single (not ensuite) at £48 which was right at the top of the building, with toilet/shower (shared with 2 other rooms) next door - plus other toilet/baths on other floors. My room had a wash basin, tea/coffee making, TV, WiFi (although I did not use), plenty of drawers/hanging space, room safe, chair and full bedding etc.

Breakfast was included in price of private rooms (£2,50 extra if in Dorm room). Consisted of help-yourself juice, hot drinks, cereals, apples/orgnages, toast and various spreads.

A self-cooking kitchen, lounge and bar available.

Situated right in centre of Brighton opposite the Pavillion, between rail station and sea.

Would recommend.

Only minor gripe was thta I was asked for photo id when checking in, but had not seen any reference to this when booking on-line. I think this needs to be made clear - as someone who does not drive (hence no driver's licence) this was a bit awkward.

Room tip: I found hostel itself quiet, but some unavoidable nouise from revellry outside in this buzzing city.

It's a lively place to drop in for a few days
The staff is wonderful, guests are usually friendly, there's a good vibe all around, etc...
There's a lounge area where you can make friends really easily, a kitchen to cook your own food, etc
Would recommend!
You won't regret it!

My school class and I stayed in this hotel for the last couple of days and when we arrived everything looked nothing like on the pictures!!
We were so many that we took up all the rooms but still the hostel overbooked itself so there was a lot of trouble!
My room that I shared with two other girls was so small that we couldn't even open our suitcases. The bathroom was mouldy and the rooms upstairs overheated!

Not satisfied at all!

The only good thing was service, breakfast and the location.

Hi, Thanks for your feedback, and we are happy that you enjoyed Brighton, in regards to the point you raised in regards to the size of the room, it was your school's request to convert the room from twin to triple so that it can take the number of students and to minimize the cost. Not sure what you mean by the hostel was overbooked as every one has their own bed, there was no overbooking issues and no trouble that you claimed. We keep our bathrooms always clean and tidy and if we see any sign of moulde we treat it immediately. Your teachers were very thankful and praised the hostel and the service we provided and they assured me that there were no problems what so ever, I am not sure what is your intention by claiming the above, hope that you speak to Kathy or Christian your teachers.
