Stayed 1 night in a private double, many more facilities than expected of a hostel - TV, Bluetooth speakers, safe, tea/coffee, ensuite shower and loo and second basin. Looked clean, smelled clean, felt secure, plenty of electrical sockets, polite, helpful staff. Couldn't have asked for more. Thank you. Will definitely be staying again.

Hostel was okay for a short visit. The shower was pretty dirty and the water wouldn't go down the plug hole which I though was a little yuck. Other than this the staff were really good and the room was larger than I expected(we stayed in a private room with two single beds).

There's certainly a quirky atmosphere at Kipps, a multi floored guesthouse close to all Brighton has to offer. In a private room expect a climb, one flight up to reception then another three flights to the room. Staff are friendly and attentive and always available. Rooms themselves are basic but functional, and if you can cope with the wonky floors...

Stayed here for 2 nights and had a enjoyable stay. We were in a 10-bed dorm and was surprisingly spacious. Ensuite bathroom was spotless and rooms clean. Nice "welcome kit" on our beds when we arrived. Beds came with linens which were changed daily! Great value for what you pay for, really. Also had spare bathrooms available on the 3rd...

I stayed here with a with a friend for two nights whilst in Brighton. Staff were helpful and welcoming. Room was well appointed, clean and spacious, especially for the price. Well located accommodation with easy access to local sights and shopping. Would recommend this to anyone travelling on a budget as breakfast was also included in the price.
