Hostels to Stay in Brighton England

Every backpacker uses word of mouth of other travelers to find themselves a good hostel to lay their head at night. This blog is going to look at a few of the best options in the lovely sea side city of Brighton, England. Nicknamed “London by the sea” Brighton is a spot that shouldn’t be overlooked by travelers. Brighton has enough size to have lots of varied restaurants, clubs, and shops while not being overwhelming in scope like London. Also, Brighton has several universities adjacent to it and has a young, vibrant population. Some of the best hostel options include:


Kipps Brighton
76 Grande Parade, Brighton, England
Just a stone’s throw from the attractions of Brighton – including the pier, the shop laneways, the Royal Pavilion – this hostel has been described as more like a hotel than a hostel by former guests. Beds are made daily and a fresh towel is provided. With a great common room to watch movies, hang out, and meet other people from around the world. Once you’ve made friends there’s a fully licensed bar on the premise to mingle.

St Christopher’s at The Palace Hotel
10/12 Grand Junction Road, BN1 1PN, Brighton
St Christopher’s Inns have become somewhat of a chain of hostels in the United Kingdom, but it does mean that you are offered a fairly uniformed good time. This isn’t the old school uniform, these are wild times down in Belushi’s the bar attached to each St Christopher’s inn. Your beds will be comfy enough, but I’m guessing taking part in a wild 80’s/ 90’s theme night will be more fun that sleeping.

Journeys Brighton Hostel
33 Richmond Place, Brighton, Brighton, England
Housed In a former live music venue, the pressure point. The Journey Brighton Hostel offers a unique experience for travelers to party in an old venue then fall into their beds to sleep. Granted, other guests’ reviews of this place show that it may not be the cleanest. Party versus clean will have to be the choice to be made here.

SoBo House Brighton
10 Seafield Road, Hove, Brighton, England
SoBo hostel offers budget accommodation and the chance to stay long term if you so choose. The latter being as choice that if you are having fun in Brighton you might be pretty into. The cons, are that the hostel – according to user reviews – could use a deep clean, and the staff id over worked and not as friendly as they could be.
