Liked: Very cheap for Brighton. Good wifi and control over who enters the building

Disliked: Dark, dirty, smelly. Beds aren't very clean and comfortable. Basically what you get for paying such a low price to stay in a very expensive city. Location very close to sea, and close to bus to city centre. But quite the long walk
