Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

Friendly staff, great kitchen (open all hours) and nice rooms.

We arrived late on Friday (train arrived 20 minutes later than scheduled) but Kevin was friendly and got us settled in. He showed us the kitchen etc - even asked if we had a preference for milk!

We stayed in a 4 bunk room and our friends had a double room. The kitchen had bread for toasting as well coffee/tea etc.

Beds had fresh sheet, duvet cover and pillow and the room had a window seat.

Would definitely stay again :)

Stayed: July 2014

Clean, cheap, newly refurbished, and the staff is very friendly.
If you think you can't do hostels and sleep with several other people anymore, but you still want to spend less than £50 per night on weekends, this is the right place for you: a twin room is £40 per person.
They have a two night minimum policy but if they can, they might let you stay for one night only: GREAT!

Two friends and I stayed here in July for 2 nights. We were given a room upgrade (bigger than what we paid for) could see the sea from the window! We checked in in the evening and had a problem with our key so we phoned the contact number and someone was with us within 10 minutes with an extra key and 3 towels for us to use. Couldn't be better service really! The whole building is on the tail end of a renovation, which may explain some unflattering reviews. However we found the room to be spacious, clean and nicely decorated. There's plugs and a full length mirror to use. All of our beds had memory foam mattresses and were very comfy! The bathroom is shared amongst the 3 of us and the other bedroom on the floor - we never had any issues sharing, the bathroom was always clean. The only thing I would say is that the room we were in (3rd floor) was extremely hot so it may be worth investing in some floor fans for summer time!

Otherwise great stay!

Stayed here for 2 nights at start of July. Had a great experience and the manage Kevin was very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Rooms were nice and beds comfortable with a good living room and very conventional kitchen with 2 nice wee alcoves to dine in.
Would recommend this place to anyone visiting Brighton.

Found this hostel when planning a last minute trip to Brighton. It was great. Staff were friendly and helpful. Location is fantastic…approx 20 minute walk to Brighton Pier, 1 minute walk to seafront. Dorms were spacious enough, TV room was good, kitchen was well equipped (Cornflakes, bread, milk, jam, Tea/coffee provided), bathrooms were fine, the place was kept pretty clean, free security lockers were available. I will definitely look at staying here again if I go back to Brighton in the future.
