Funky budget accommodation bang in the centre of Brighton.
Old Steine Brighton East Sussex BN1 1NH 0845 371 9176
The flagship Brighton YHA venture is riding a new wave of hostelling, with a spruced-up central Brighton hotel that offers funky, comfy accommodation on a budget in a location that many of the pricey global chains would kill for. Housed in a rather fine Regency building, the hostel is just a minute's walk away from Brighton Pier. You can still pay by the bed in dorm rooms and it's great value, but they have a wide range of private guest rooms too. Overall it's a large place with over 150 beds in all but that doesn't mean you shouldn't expect a warm and friendly welcome. Choices range from three- to eight-bedded rooms, with a mixture of bunk and regular beds, to 17 boutiquey private double rooms with en-suite bathrooms on the top floor as well as 12 'premium' rooms with sea views. The building, too, is great, and has a café and bar, and a kitchen for diehard self-caterers – plus a movie and karaoke room. If you're looking for a hostel city break with a difference, YHA Brighton could be just the thing.
You will find us less than a minute’s walk from the world famous Brighton Pier, two minutes from the Prince Regent’s magnificent Pavilion and three minutes from the medieval Lanes shopping area.
Brighton is famous for its liberal values and forward thinking attitude. Here you will find an abundance of independent boutiques, quirky pubs and comfy alternative cafés.Aside from the three major festivals - Brighton Fringe, Brighton Festival and Brighton Pride, there is a year round programme of entertainment from alternative comedy through camp cabaret to contemporary art. And if you need a stylish base for a trip to London, Brighton is fab for groups and just a quick and easy drive down the motorway!
