“chicken and bacon bed!”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

We stayed here in a 15 bed dorm for a hen party night. It is what it is to be fair, it was pretty cheap and we had a bed to crash on. Only complaint was the cleanliness. I was on a bottom bunk and when I got into bed I found an old sock and a half eaten chicken and bacon wrap down the back of my bed. Doesn't equate to very thorough cleaning of the rooms. Bit limited on the toilet/shower facilites as well but it is a hostel.

Stayed May 2012, travelled with friends

Nothing more, nothing less. Bit of a mix up when I first arrived - I was allocated a bed that was already in use, but this was soon resolved. Only complaints would be that the room was very hot and stuffy during the night and the hiked up prices for new years, it would have been much better value for money at the usual price.

ok if you just want basic accomodation with no frills. The bunk beds are better than most hostels with pull-blinds but make sure you identify the right one - they are numbered rather randomly which can cause confusion especially as they are triple bunks. Some noise at night and rooms are a bit stuffy but could be worse. Basic facilities at the hostel including common room with large TV screen and reception. Tiny ktichen so cooking is worth avoiding. Large free luggage room downstairs but staff don't monitor it. Very good location minutes from shops, cafes and restaurants and 6 mins from sea-front too. Never tried the breakfast but its basic by all accounts.

Room Tip: If you want a ground level bunk bed make sure you ring ahead and ask or at least mention at check-in...

I spent one month at the journeys, and I really enjoyed my stay. The location is really great, good and free breakfast, clean room and bathrooms, and the staff is very friendly and helpfull.
I've been in several hostels in Brighton and Hove, and for me that is the best in town and I would recommend it.

Decent triple bunk beds with curtains, lighting and plugs, and secure door access. Shared shower rooms were a bit strange (have to keep pressing a button every 10 seconds). Free breakfast. They restrict eating in rooms but is fine in their main foyer/lounge. Okay TV. Wash up after yourself. 10am leaving time. Windows were a bit hard to open. In a convenient location for access to the local bars and town, but very hard to find parking in the area around.

Spending one month in this hostel, we conclude that the atmosphere is very welcomed, the staff is nice and close to the guests. If we stay a long while, relationships can be created (we prefer the week than the week end). Nevertheless according to the rooms, there is not enough places for the luggages especially in rooms without shelves and it is often warm. The location is good, not far from the center.
Thanks all the staff and Tobby's great dj !
