Liked: Only good thing about this hostel was that it was only about 20 minutes from downtown brighton

Disliked: Everything. The reception staff was rude an not helpful. The girl gave us all the wrong door codes, had no idea what bus to take into brighton, they were very uneducated. Hostel was old, run down, dark and depressing. Not worth the money at all
