I've stayed here a number of the past few years and this stay was by far the most relaxed, welcoming and enjoyable;I didn't until I checked out that thehostel has been taken over recently, which has been a very postive one as far as I can see; pleasant, professional and friendly staff remained so even at a very busy period,...

This is a small hostel and as such I found it that bit more homely than many. Plus it is well equipped with a games room! Free sweets, stored luggage, scented water and ready made beds were appreciated!

We were a group of four staying in two private double rooms. Location is great. 5 minute walk to the pier, shops and restaurants. Convenience store also close by if you need anything. Check-in was easy, although we turned up 45 minutes early and were denied check-in despite the hostel being almost empty. They did allow us to store our...

I was in Brighton for a conference, and most single accommodation was either out of my budget, or already taken. First time around, I came across the dormitory option at Kipps and didn't feel secure with the concept (although, it emerged that several other conference attendees took this option and were equally enthusiastic about Kipps). Anyway, I ended up taking...

The title above says it all, what more do you need? The location is fantastic, just a few minutes from the Royal Pavilion. Parking is available in the street with a 24-hour voucher that you can purchase from the hostel. Our room had a shower but not a toilet. Recommended!

Kipps Backpackers is an outstanding place to stay for anyone (of any age) who enjoys a social and fun atmosphere. My friend and I stayed for 6 nights in a ten bed dorm which we shared with people from all walks of life, and had a fantastic time. As it is a hostel we assumed to bring our own towels...

As a travel writer I've stayed at hundreds of hostels in 77 countries all over the world, so I'm well qualified to say Kipps is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at.

I had such a great stay here, I was gone from the hostel most of the time, however the staff were very friendly and welcoming. They helped me out for finding things to do and places to see. Unfort. didn't really meet any fun backpackers but that's always a hit and miss. The place was very clean as well.
