***THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW CLOSED***
Brighton with its famous nightlife, thriving multicultural restaurant scene, bohemian chic shopping outlets and general laid back vibe, makes one heck of a weekend away. Although it's famously renowned for its seaside attractions and wild nights out, the architecture of the town centre together with the prevalent vibrant art scene, makes it one of the UK's most all-round exciting and unique cities.
It's no surprise then that YHA have now set up camp in the area, by opening up a brand new hostel in Brighton's bustling town centre - just a pebble toss from the pier and famously cool shopping district, The Lanes. The building where the new hostel is set was formerly the Royal York Hotel – one of Brighton's most grand and historical buildings. Now, the building has been transformed to include a trendier edge to the decor and bohemian touches to the communal areas, whilst still paying utmost respect to the underlying historical heritage of the building, making it one of the grandest settings for a YHA hostel in the UK. There are 51 rooms in total - 17 of which are double rooms (ideal for couples) - and they all come with their own en suites. There's even a premium option, which includes a king-sized double room with extra luxuries like a roll-top bath.
YHA Brighton doesn't officially open till 17th November 2014, but it is currently taking pre-bookings. So if you fancy being one of the first people to ever to stay in the new YHA, then have a go at entering our competition below.
