Liked: Location is excellent. Staff keep it clean even if some of the other people staying didn't. Easy to come and go through side door with your own key.

Disliked: Communal areas shut after 8pm. Which means no secure storage available all the time. Rather expensive for a hostel but for a weekend in Brighton it is the going rate.
