Welcome to our hostel

Our brand new group accommodation in Brighton has recently undergone a huge refurbishment and is now ready to open its shiny doors and welcome groups from around the world. This former hotels central location makes it an ideal base for groups looking to experience everything that this vibrant and unique seaside city has to offer.

School trips are well provided for - the hostel offers large classrooms, a wonderful catered meal service and spacious group rooms. Fully LOtC certified – the hostel also offers teachers free familiarisation visits prior to booking and one free leader space per ten students.

Those looking for accommodation for large groups in Brighton for corporate events– you’re also covered. Large, fully equipped conference facilities are on-site at the hostel alongside a meal service and access to a wide range of attractions guaranteed to make your work trip a memorable one.

Directly opposite the hostel groups will find the iconic Brighton Pier and seafront, overflowing with rides, beautiful cafes, arcades and of course – a million fish and chip shops. Along the seafront is a wealth of unique sea facing cafes and bars, and if you time it right you may even catch some wonderful pop-up live performances in the summer! Located opposite the pier is the famed Brighton Sea life centre - a wonderful educational day trip for school groups. Keep an eye out for ‘The Big Lemon’ or ‘Lemon Bus’ as the locals call it when out with your students – the bus is an environmental sustainability initiative, running solely on chip fat!

The Royal Pavilions, beautiful buildings shaped similarly to the iconic Taj Mahal with stunning surrounding gardens are just a short walk away from the hostel, alongside a number of wonderful museums and theatres including the Brighton Art Museum.

The famous Brighton Lanes, including the quirky, vintage North Laine can be found near the hostel too. The Lanes are made up of several windy, narrow streets packed with one of a kind vintage shops, record shops, cafés, the famous Choccywoccydoodah, bars and lounge areas – making for an unforgettable group day out.

The capital city of London is a short direct train away from Brighton too, ideal for groups wanting to tick Brighton and the capital off their list in one trip.
Why not send our brand new Brighton hostel an enquiry and start planning your groups trip to the seaside?
