Liked: Fantastic location if you are in the seafront building. Just cross the road and you are on the beach!

Disliked: The shower was very difficult. It was in an enclosed cubicle with no light so it is dark when you have a shower. Also you can only switch the shower on and off from outside the cubicle so it is difficult not to get water everywhere!

Liked: I loved the location because it was right in the middle of the night life and near lots of good places to eat, especially the 24 hour cafe which proved useful after a night out. The room was quite basic but everything was very clean and the beautiful seafront view was greatly appreciated.

Disliked: It was very noisy at night but that was expected because of the great location and we already knew this would happen so it wasn't that big of an issue.

Liked: The staff were nice. Clean. Cheap. Good location.

Disliked: £30 key deposit was a bit much. Surely £10 would be more reasonable. Very, very limited showering facilities. No place to lock valuables from memory.

Liked: It was in the best location so close to everything.

Disliked: Noisy at night as club just outside and windows aren't double glazed. It was ok for us because we were going out at night clubbing but if you intend on having an early night could be a problem. But I loved the locations and our room was next to the street and right opposite the club. and no parking but that just Brighton in General ok if you have a car but we went in a van and couldn't fit in most of the underground parking

07 April 2014

Liked: Location, that is all

Disliked: disliked paying a hotel price for a below par hostel, awful showers, signs around telling you to keep your own stuff safe etc no responsibility of the hostel is a bit disconcerting, bad smells in corridor, mould on ceiling, wifi only in a little shabby reception which had no where to sit.... squeaky beds, awful pillows.... Not trying to be harsh, I stay in alot of hostels in more run down places than the UK and this was probably my worst
