28 January 2011 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The staff/owner was fantastically friendly. We overslept and missed the 11 o'clock check out and he was very understanding and lovely. The Location is fantastic for Brighton, right in the center of the Laines. Great place to stay, very central to everything in Brighton. Sink in bedroom was very useful as the rooms do not have en suites.

Disliked: Nothing major really, the pillows and duvet were very thin so I was quite cold but the sheets were clean and the bed quite comfortable so can't complain really. There were no lockers in rooms but there may have been a lock up or something at reception.

Liked: The staff was extremely accomodating in helping me get my bearings in the town when i first arrived. The rooms were clean and the beds were pre-made.

Disliked: The common bathrooms often were dirty, probably because so many people shared a bathroom.

Liked: I liked everything about this hostel: The staff was very forthcoming and friendly, the central location was perfect for a walk in the city and at the same time just a walk of some minutes away from the beach. The hostel had everything a hostel basically needs and was very cheap. Perfect!

Disliked: Nothing.
