If you want a cheap price, this is the place to go and the staff at the front desk are very kind. However, there were many broken windows, people were smoking inside, the stairs get very dirty as you walk up to the top floor....More
This hostel was awesome for the super cheap price we payed! Scored a bunk bed with a view of the ocean, with clean (nearly new) sheets! Breakfast was simple but super good again for what we payed. Staff were super friendly and there was always...More
Hotsel is cheap for a night's stay in Brighton. The dorm room was ok, bedding clean and bed comfy enough. There also is a choice of toast or cereal, tea or coffee for breakfast, which is included in the price. The guy who is at...More
First thing we saw as soon as we came into our room were flies! dirty windows, the bed, especially pillow cases, smelled of body odor. Nothing was cleaned properly. I had to spray perfume just to get rid of flies and make the room smell...More
This place is without a doubt the most basic hostel I've ever stayed in. Most hostels try and make their communal areas - like the lobby - seem welcoming. Not Hostelpoint. It's essentially an empty room with a desk and a cash machine. Only cash...More

My partner and I lived in this hostel for more than a month, I'll attempt to answer your question. Hostelpoint has three floors for tourists, the fourth floor is for short-term residents, there is a double room on each floor (all of the rooms are in the eastern corner of the building, the windows have views of the Brighton Pier and the sea. If I may say so, few other hotels or hostels in the city, have better views of all the activity going on the beach or blissful blue sea.
At the moment, I wish I was in Brighton, too. But, here is some inside information.
First, the best double room in the hostel, is on the first floor (you could ask for it, they're all the same price). I can't remember which, but the double room on either the third or fourth floor has a very uncomfortable mattress on a queen size bed (you should ask to try out the mattress first, you might be able to choose a room, if there are enough vacancies).
While many hostelpoint rooms have massive bay windows, ones that face the sea (but there are others, that face a parking lot in the back). The following dormitory rooms have windows, that face the sea; they are #15,14 and 13; #25,24 and 23 and #35,34 and 33. I believe the double rooms are #12, #22 and #32.
Also, if you wish to save money, you could rent a two person dormitory (two person bunk bed) including private bath; this option is cheaper than a double room, but it has a view of a brick wall, but it is very quiet, at least. #16,#26 and #36 are the only two person dorms in the hostel.
One last thing, the stairs on the third floor are narrower and more difficult to transverse than the first and second floors, if you can imagine that. You'll get a lot of exercise, but who knows, it's possible, that the children will enjoy it. It puts the phrase "climbing the stairs" into a new light.
You should ask the hostel to give you and your family a tour of the kitchen; fortunately there is a kitchen, which is veryrefreshing. The long term resident backpackers living on the fourth floor, often make full use of the kitchen facilities. I found the majority of them to be lovely people.
Apologies, for my long winded answer. Have Fun, Cheers!
