I loved this hostel! It was in a perfect location right across from the Pavilion. Super well organized and clean - they are honestly constantly cleaning, and it pays off. The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of bathrooms for the dorm: one directly in the room and two across the hall to use which were very nice. Cute and convenient continental breakfast and friendly staff. It is very well maintained and I would highly recommend staying here!

Was close to seafront, but far enough away to be quiet. Room had WiFi and bed was comfortable. Also I only stayed the one night after booking two, which they were fine about changing

We enjoyed the chance to leave and enjoy breakfast on the seaside at The New Club. In other words I cannot rate this property. After travelling Europe and Turkey for six months, this rated the worst. Access to buses network good. Able to take number 1 or 6 to Brighton then 12x to Birling Gap and the Seven Sisters. Network day card 7 quid.
