City break

15 August 2010

Liked: Location was handy

Disliked: 1 shower per floor, couldn't get a shower in the morning. Ridiculous. The three bed bunks are like some prison where you can't even sit up on your bed. It was sweaty, no ventilation and really claustraphobic. At almost £30 a night it was a cheek

Liked: They didn't have record of my reservation so I had to stay in a room I didn't book. The showers were clean but the water was either burning hot or freezing cold. Otherwise pretty nice place to stay. No lockers in the large dorms.

19 June 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It needs bigger signs on the front saying what it is. It is in an obvious position but it took me a while to actually work out it was right in front of me. Speaking to others, they did the same. BUT nice hostel, very little space in rooms for everyone's luggage.

Customer review

11 June 2010

Liked: Proximity to centre is really the only good point about this hostel. It was very noisy from other hostel users coming and going at all hours. We were on the 3rd floor and it was VERY hot in our room when we stayed. There was no air con so forced to sleep with the window open. The hostel is on a busy road and we were frequently woken up by people shouting/arguing outside at street level and sirens/road noise. We paid almost £100 per night between 3 of us which is a total rip off for the room and facilities.

Edward Orrock

10 June 2010

Liked: I would not recommend staying in the 18 bed dorms. Yes, its cheap and the hostel itself is fairly decent but with 18 people you can't be guaranteed more than 3 hours sleep a night. Otherwise was a fairly decent hostel. Probably wouldn't stay with them again however as it was a fair way from central areas of Brighton.

Customer review

16 May 2010

Liked: Friendly staff and great location. It was also a bit frustrating since you're expected to make your own bed and there were lots of sheets missing. This isn't the biggest deal for me, I just went to reception and got more sheets, but it was more of a problem when people were coming in at 2 or 3 in the morning, realised they didn't have sheets, then went back and forth and had to put the lights on and spend quite a bit of time figuring it all out while the rest of us were trying to sleep. So don't expect to arrive and fall into bed, you arrive and you've got work to do!
