Liked: great position - couldnt ave stayed anywhere more central, less tan a few mins walk from train station. hostel was well organised, staff were friendly but not too helpful, i was a bit nervous when we arrived as a man came to reception and told the workers that he'd had his wallet stolen from te room. breakfast nwas literally just cereal and toast. overall an ok stay, except for the showers and te fact the toilets are multisex. te showers were either too cold or ot and you ad to keep pressing a button to keep it working, or it would turn off.

Disliked: as stated above

Liked: It was in a great location! So close to everything - although this isn't too hard in brighton. overall - not a bad place, its cheap just don't expect friendliness here

Disliked: The staff didn't know the area - where any services were (ex. internet - they don't have a computer and have no idea where there's an internet cafe), where to go out etc.. The lights stay on at least in the 18 bedroom dorm so on the bottom two bunks its fine but on the top the lights are glaring you in the face all night.

Liked: the promotional material and signs and general asthetics and colour scheme was nice. I met some great friends there. There were a good amount of power points for laptops.

Disliked: The kitchen is not "fully stocked" as promoted, besides being very cramped, it had one pot,one pan, no can opener, little cutlery for entire hostel. There were no lockers in rooms either and rooms very very cramped. no reading light either. Showers would block constantly and would run out after 30 secs so you had to continually push the button. Breakfast consisted of very limited selection of cereals and thin bread with 2-3 jams. Internet continually cut out. counted 4 showers in entire hostel, no way near enough for amount of beds.

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
