nice shared rooms not far from most major bus stops and shops. The beds squeaked with every movement made which makes it difficult to sneak in when everyone else is sleeping lol.

There is a kitchen area to cook food and whatever, I'm sure there was a washing machine but I'm not too sure, never needed it.

Also space downstairs to chill, watch tv, play games. Its a fine place for long and short stays.

Room Tip: all the same really

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!
