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.

Unfortunately, the lift at YHA Brighton is currently out of order. Apologies for the inconvenience.

The YHA in Brighton is wonderful. It’s walking distance to many of the attractions: Brighton Pier, Pavillion, Old Steine etc. Staff is extremely helpful. The room that we stayed in is sensational and really a good deal.

My room, 207, was across the street for a nightclub smoking area with load noise plus blasts of music whenever the door opened kept me awake until 3:15 when I went to the lobby. No one in the room could get any sleep. Being in a central location, I expect some street noise but this was unacceptable. The hostel has decent common areas but if you can’t sleep, nothing makes up for it. I will not be going back?
