Liked: the location and the color of beds

Disliked: Had mushrooms in the bathrooms (I have pictures) the bad hygiene and management of the horrible hostel. the man shouted me several times just for asking. is racist about Spanish, I cheated and haggled with the price (which I think is not legal) and especially with uneducated people. For the rest good, clean beds, good breakfast, kitchen (when the manager wants to open it, because it does not meet the schedule) is clean and complete. Please let's stop at the foot of the hostel manager. Thanks

Liked: Many toilets and clean, free wifi, power outlets at each bunk bed, many seats in the common area, a communal computer, free storage for your luggage

Disliked: Small kitchen and a single small fridge, the showers are kinda bad (but manageable with hot water), they shut the only common area at 2am because they have a bar license - so if you just want to chill after a loud evening at the common area - good luck.

Liked: Love the rooms! Curtains around the beds make them very private. Personal plug point and light. Nice clean linen. Beds don't squeak. Great atmosphere. Great location right by North Laines and close to the seaside and London Road. Good breakfast...nice coffee and chocolate cereal = a luxury.

Disliked: Showers aren't very nice, but bearable

30 July 2013 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The staff was very friendly and kind and knew what was going on around the area. There's a great atmosphere in the TV/game room which makes it even more easy to get some new friends. The breakfast had both white and brown bread and three kinds of cereal so there's a bit more to choose from than other places.

Disliked: They could have cleaned the rooms and toilets/showers a bit more. In the shower room it got really moisture because there weren't any air circulation and it also smelled a bit of moisture. The toilets is really small to get into. The lowest bed in the is really low.

Liked: friendly reception

Disliked: the pillows - i have never seen a pillow as thin as these, i did ask the maid for more but i didnt get any. shower areas need mats down as there is no dry area to get dry. the ones i went to use i had to cross a pool of water in and out of them. ladders on the beds could do with being a softer tread as its not comfy on the feet climbing up there. a table or some shelving in the rooms would be nice too

Liked: It's location to the city centre was great. Also happy that they let me shower and drop my bag off when I was very early before check in time.

Disliked: The showers really need sorting out. Water spurting in all directions and a flooded floor aren't ideal.

Liked: Good location. Staff were helpful. Nice lounge area.

Disliked: No wifi in dorms. You have to put in a code to get in the dorm which is a bit tedious. Sleeping on top of a triple bunk though they do make it as private and comfortable as possible. Some of the drains were blocked in the showers.

Liked: Bedding was comfortable and the hostel is located very close to Brighton Pier and The Lanes. Drinks are cheap and it was a good temperature inside the dorms. Staff were generally helpful

Disliked: 3 bed bunks and the rooms were very crowded with hardly any room for our bags. We only stayed for two nights but had to change dorms for the second night also they could do with more hooks in the shower.

Liked: beds had curtains -> more privacy

Disliked: Bathrooms VERY dirty, staff 'checked' every two hours but failed to notice that e.g. hand drier didn't work, toilet was smelly and wouldn't flush a few times, door knob had fallen off (was locked in for 5 minutes before managing to get out...), etc. Dorm was way too cold for spring time and also quite dirty. No room for luggage, no reading lights.
