Came for a night out in brighton with some friends. The location was slightly far from the centre but quick to get to by cab. Very affordable place and very accessible. Was a perfect simple hostel for our short stay here and we all enjoyed it.

Super nice people and we're more than accommodating on check in time (we showed up at 5pm when our check in was earlier). The rooms were fairly clean and the place was filled with codes to get into places which is always nice!

Friendly staff, great location and a great price! Would stay here again. Good atmosphere and amenities and you get what you pay for. Close to the sea and in a safe area of Brighton. Lots of floors but an overall good building and great place to stay for a night or two.
