Everything great, beautiful hostel, gorgeous area, lovely staff and were very accomodating and clean
Very very noisy room 4 due to traffic
Lovely location and view, friendly staff, and the pods were very cosy and homely. Great location, being so close to brighton and yet such beautiful countryside. I would absolutely stay here again, just keeping those other things in mind so that I'm not caught off guard. The self catering opportunities are great, and the breakfast was lovely too, great value for how much we spent.
I don't want to blame the yha for this as it was more my misunderstanding, but just so others are clear, the pods just have the beds in them and one socket, may be worth bringing an extension lead. The bathroom is in the main building, and I'm sure the shower is too but we had to leave in a rush. Also be aware the breakfast finishes around 9, and we were caught our by sleeping late. Not so much what we didn't like, more points to be aware of
I stayed in a pod. It was warm and cosy. Everything was clean and comfortable. The staff were very welcoming and I enjoyed a lovely meal in the cafe.
My husband booked a pod by mistake.
The camping pods were comfortable and warm. The shared facilities were clean, spacious and secure.
The camping pod lacked security, the keys were often “jammy” in the door.
