Baggies Backpackers Brighton
Reviewed 19 November 2006

We normally don't stay in hostels. We've had a few bad experiences that really tarnished our opinion of them. Baggies, however, was so great we are on the backpacker bandwagon once more. The guys that ran the place were really nice, friendly and helpful. The private double room was clean, comfortable and warm. The toilet was tiny, you couldn't swing a cat in there, but I like cats and wouldn't want to do them any harm so it was fine. The bathroom was average. We stayed at Baggies on a Saturday night and were pleasantly surprised that it was whisper quiet at night time, no loud hoo-harring like you often get at hostels. They were very accommodating with holding our luggage for half a day before we left. For 35 pounds this was fantastic budget accommodation and we would definitely stay there again.

My husband and I selected Baggies because of its price and its recommendation in our Let's Go book. We immediately understood the vibe of the place upon entering the front door. This is a hippy hang out.

The guy at the front desk was extremely nice and helpful. He does not use a computer so everything is still done by hand (and reservations only by phone or in person). There were people relaxing in the front room watching movies, making food in the kitchen downstairs, etc.

We were only staying one night so this was literally a place for us to crash after a day of driving. We are not bohemian people so we were not particularly thrilled by the 20 year old mix and match Disney sheets. However, the other parts of the room were fine as were the toilet and shower facilities. I do think it is time for them to purchase new sheets. That just doesn't seem hygenic after all these years.

We wouldn't stay there again - it didn't fit our personality. If you're all about the "vibe" and enjoy meeting other people like yourself, this will be up your alley. It's pretty much a stereotypical "hippy hostel."

Stayed: August 2006
