Top tips for finding Brighton hostel deals

  • Booking a hostel in Brighton comes with several advantages over booking hotels or other accommodations. On top of cutting costs, you’ll have access to the beach and other popular tourist destinations in Brighton without the hustle and bustle of a hotel. Many of the area’s hostels also house shared kitchens, where you can prepare your own meals when you don’t feel like dining out. Another important advantage of booking a hostel in Brighton is the heightened opportunity to meet up with both locals and fellow travelers.
  • Are you traveling with your significant other? Sleeping in a dormitory-style room isn’t the best option for a romantic getaway, which is why choosing the right hostel in Brighton is essential for your vacation. Hostel YHA Brighton has double and triple rooms that can accommodate you and your significant other with all the advantages of a hostel but without the lack of privacy that comes with open, dormitory-style sleeping quarters.
  • Although Brighton is a vibrant city with several different areas to explore, there are two main neighborhoods that house the majority of the area’s hostels: the Brighton seafront and central Brighton. Booking a hostel on the Brighton seafront has the obvious benefits of quick beach access and respite from the high foot traffic of downtown, while central Brighton is overall more convenient and puts you closer to shopping options, bars, restaurants, and clubs on the major high streets in the area.
  • When traveling with a group of family or friends, your choice of accommodations can either make or break your vacation. One of the best hostels in Brighton for groups is Hostel Baggies, which is located on the seafront. This hostel offers both dormitory-style rooms and a quadruple room that can accommodate a party of up to four people, as well as several spacious common areas where you can kick your feet up after a long day of beachgoing and sightseeing.
  • If you’re looking for a cheap hostel in Brighton, you should consider going during the low season. You’ll generally find lower-priced hostels in Brighton in November and January.
  • Hostel room prices vary depending on many factors but you’ll likely find the best hostel deals in Brighton if you stay on a Sunday. The most expensive day for hostel bookings is Wednesday.
  • If you want to ensure you grab a bargain, try to book at least 1 day before your stay to get the best price for a Brighton hostel.
  • The cheapest 3-star hostel in London found on KAYAK in the last 2 weeks was C$ 209, while the most expensive was C$ 209.
  • Don’t know how much time you need to see all the sights? KAYAK users usually book their hostel in London for 3 days.
