Trip Type:
Relaxation / spa

Liked: The staff was really friendly and helpful

Disliked: The cleanliness of the place can be really improved. Our pillows were spotted with make-up from previous visitors. The matraces could also be exchanged in the near futurs. one shower wasn't working at all and the mixing tap of the other shower was at the outside. However, it was completely unnecessary, since the water was either cold or extremely cold.

City break

Liked: The location was fantastic

Disliked: Lots. The showers were always breaking down, the toilet paper was rationed if there was even any there, the bins were always over-flowing in the bathrooms, the rooms were tiny, you could feel the springs in the beds, the windows were either held open by a block of wood or a piece of cardboard, and the staff weren't the friendliest ie. rude (smiles are illegal so it seems) and swearing on the phone whilst I was at reception. Another hostel feeding off its location. Stay somewhere else.

Liked: Ideally located in the Lanes area between Brighton Station, the Pavilion, old town & the beach. Friendly and helpful staff, cool area for meeting other travellers, fully equiped kitchen with free tea & coffee, and the opportunity to cook own food. Small dormitories with plenty of personal space.

Disliked: Nothing comes to mind
