Liked: As soon as I came in the door I was met with a fantastic, warm welcome by Carmin (the manager) then she whizzed around the house being friendly, helpful & explaining everything. Basically herself & every single member of the staff went out of their way to help you. The beds were fantastic, great facilities in general, breakfast was astounding value and then they have themed free (delicious) dishes every night. I've been to hostels all over Europe and this was by far the best hostel I've ever stayed at. Outstanding.-can't wait to return! All the other guests I met were lovely too.

Disliked: There was nothing to dislike-I'm hoping to stay in their brighton Kipps whenever I next get holidays.

Liked: The hostel had a lot of character with a lovely garden to relax instead of having to stay inside! Very spacious communal areas and everything was clean, beds were made to perfection and even had a toffee sweet on the pillow!

Disliked: One and only negative would be the creeky floor boards as I had to get up at 5am most days and had to walk like a ninja not to disturb anyone!
