Stayed in a dorm, Sunday till Friday

Never ever thought I'd stay in a hostel. So glad I did. Straight away I knew I had made the right decision. Friendly staff. Great location. Safe and secure dorm, Clean and tidy. Nice communal areas. Considerate guests (no noise or untidiness)

Can not wait to come back.

After finding I had to come down to Brighton at very short notice for a job transfer, I was initially quite concerned about finding somewhere nice and reasonable to be able to stay for a couple of weeks. After comparing different hostels in Brighton, I ultimately settled on Kipps because of the reviews of other guests, and I have to say I could not be gladder of what I chose.
All of the staff are polite, friendly, and more than willing to help with anything they can. The environment and atmosphere are relaxed and comfortable, but secure, with more than enough amenities to satisfy on a quiet day. The place seems to attract the nicest guests, and I have met people during my short stay here that I truly would love to keep in contact with.
The beds in the dorms are more than enough, with enough storage space, shelves, and sockets to let you set the area out as you like. The bathrooms are always clean from my experience and the facilities all work well. The staff do a good job at making sure the entire place stays clean and respectable.
The location is excellent, being a very short walk from most things you'd want to do in Brighton, whether that is a trip to the many shopping areas, a walk along the seafront or any of the parks in the city, or a journey to one or more of the great many bars, pubs, and eateries in the area.
The only actual issue I could think up about this place is that the towel rail in the first-floor bathroom is broken. That is all!
I feel ridiculous rating this place so highly with so few faults, but I am just being honest as to how I see it; I would recommend this place to anybody looking to stay in the area in a heartbeat, and I can only hope I find an excuse to come back!

Kyle, Many thanks for your kind feedback, glad you have found Kipps comfortable, clean, friendly, organised and safe. So great to see you making friends and enjoying yourself at Kipps after a long day at work. Just a quick note about the towel rail, that it has been fixed now, so hopefully all is good now.

Stayed one night in a private double room. Shower and sink in the room. Clean and comfortable with friendly staff. Great location for seeing the sights of Brighton.
I didn't really use any facilities but there was a comfortable lounge room, kitchen and nice little outdoor area.

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
