We booked a double room for one night. On arrival we booked in and were told that our room was on the 3rd floor....only accessible by stairs - not quite what we needed after a long, hard day. The room floor sloped meaning that to lay in bed the right way around meant that feet were higher than head. The...

I was sort of impressed by this place. Me and three mates were in Brighton to go clubbing for the night, so we needed a bed to sleep in - and this place provided it for £25! So very efficient in that respect. We booked two rooms, each with bunkbeds. The room's were both ensuite and had a window (albeit...

Went on a stag do with 10 people. The place is in a good location, close to Vodka Revs, and Komedia Comedy club and opposite the waterfront so you actually get surprisingly good views. The place is as you would expect a cheap hostel to be, a bit run down, but good enough for what you need, the rooms were...

Great position, cheap as chips and about as unpretentious as it gets. Went on stag do, 8 of us shared a room, breakfast is tea/ coffee, toast and jam or cereal and sort yourself out. Bedding looked pretty clean, and bed ok. Comment before that the top bunks are pretty low spot on. First time in a hostel so didn't...

For convenience and affordability it's not bad, but don't expect great quality. The room was bland and the bathroom smelled unpleasant, although the beds seemed quite clean. The top bunks are annoyingly low though, and I knocked my head a few times being in the bottom bed. Sharing with up to 7 other people also means that you're very dependant...

Our room was dirty, there was mold in the bathroom. As of the bedding, there were blood and other bodily fluids on the sheets, we complained to reception but the situation was not addressed. The decor was all ripped and unfurnished making the area look scruffy. The Breakfast was one choice of cereal and one choice of spread. There wasn't...

We read great reviews online for this hostel, so we figured it would be great to meet our needs of just a few nights' stay. The staff were friendly and straightforward, and the location is very good, however that's about all the positive things I can say. They put the three of us, all young girls, in an 8 bed...

Stayed for one night with friends as a cheap bed for a night out. We had a leak which we discovered at 17:00 reported to reception. From which nothing was done. We were then woke at three in the morning by what I can only described as a water fall coming through the ceiling. When the repair man was called...

Hostelpoint is a great hostel for a few days. It is relatively cheap and you get what you pay for. The facilities and the rooms are quite basic but they do the job. The location of the hostel is perfect as it is at the coast and you can see the pier from most of the rooms. There's no parking...
