Brighton Hostel

Hostel Brighton

Welcome to our hostel

YHA Brighton hostel is based in the heart of the vibrant south coast city of Brighton; only a few minutes’ walk from the beach as well as transport links. This Brighton hostel is close to the famous Brighton Pier, the cool shopping district The Lanes and the varied nightlife the city has to offer.

All rooms have en-suite bathrooms and some rooms have excellent sea views. We have free Wi-Fi for YHA/HI members. There’s also a bar, restaurant and lounge areas to relax in. We even have some amazing premium rooms on offer, with king-sized beds, scenic views and roll-top baths.

YHA Brighton sells a range of attraction tickets, as well as water sports available nearby. We can also help with bar crawls and ideas for a night out. The South Downs National Park is on the doorstep of Brighton if you fancy getting out into the countryside.

Hi Margit, Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. As all the rooms & dorms here are en-suite there are no lavatories in the hallway. However, there a number of toilets downstairs on the ground floor! :) We hope to welcome you again soon! Kind regards, Max YHA Brighton

It would be a pro to foresee safe parking or garage for mototcycles.

Hi Arthur, Thank you for leaving feedback and choosing to stay with us. In regards to providing parking we simply do not have the facilities due to our city centre location, one would advise travel by coach or train especially since the coach park is right next to the hostel: it's excellent value and convenient! We look forward to welcoming you again soon. :) Kind regards, Max YHA Brighton

The bathroom in Room 309 was very cold. Not sure how you could heat the room though
