Liked: Nothing

Disliked: - The room/bathroom/toilets/sheets and kitchen were disgusting (we found a mushroom growing in one of the showers!)- Many shower rooms were out of order, the whole hostel was under works to fix bits and pieces, with plaster and work tools all over the place. When we arrived we found the whole content of one of the bathrooms (toilet, shower cubicle and pipes) that had been ripped out in the corridor to get to our room, with water and dirt everywhere.- The heating in the room wasn't working - we had to ask the manager to give us a small electrical heater- The staff was barely polite to us, looking clearly annoyed as we asked for help and advices.- The other guests were insultive, rude and almost threatening to us, as we were a group of girls.- The general atmosphere was more the one of a homeless refuge than a youth hotel.

Liked: Really friendly staff in good location.. free breakfast is a plus.I may be a bit harsh overall I did have a good stay here. I am English and this was my first time in a hostel on home soil.

Disliked: I could smell the room before I opened the dorm door. The smell of B.O was unbelievable! Can't sit up in bed unless your on the top bunk out of three or a child.I dont think any hostel in the uk is value for money

Liked: Good location, friendly staff, location, luggage storage, 10 minute walk from beach

Disliked: This hostel seems to attract an older crowd, did not see one younger person when I was there. We were suppose to spend a night but ended up just storing our luggage. I would avoid this hostel next time and stay somewhere else in Brighton.
