Tucked between the pebble beaches, the salt-washed piers, the bohemian cafes of the Laines and the fish and chip-scented promenade, hostels in Brighton are your chance to explore one of England's most happening cities without forking out a packet. They might be focussed on keeping costs down, but there's nothing cheap about the contemporary interiors and whiff of nautical charm that inspires many of the places in this category. In fact, it's possible to bag hostels in Brighton that offer plush double rooms with ensuites, not to mention shared dorms that are both contemporary and clean. A host of other establishments channel the city's youthful energy into retro-chic common lounges that have guitars to play and happy hours to get through. Some might even have a coveted location overlooking the sloshing waves of the English Channel.

Why choose hostels in Brighton?

In a town that's known for its vibrant nightlife scene and resident student population, a hostel could be the perfect way to experience things. The reason? Start with the on-site bars and drinking holes. They're imbued with touches of English Pop Art and wall murals, have plush sofas and ranges of South Coast craft beers up for grabs. They're also where you'll meet, mingle and make friends with travellers from all around the planet, and where organised pub crawls could begin come the evening hours. The upshot is that hostels in Brighton might just be spot on for young, outgoing backpackers, solo travellers and groups who are keen to hit the clubs and pubs that stretch between Brighton Pier and the North Laines student neighbourhood.

There's also plenty to be said for the range of extras that comes with a hostel in Brighton. You might want to ditch the walking shoes and try a bike instead. Or, perhaps you're keen on a hop-on, hop-off tour of the stunning East Sussex coast. It's normal for reception desks in hostels to organise activities like that, along with evening cook-ups for guests and more basic things like airport transfers. It's also true that lovers of regal English design will find loads to like about the buildings that house hostels in Brighton. They could be steeped in Victorian style, with rooms boasting high ceilings and original fireplaces from the 1800s. Or, they could be handsome Regency homes with one face looking out over pebble beaches and the sea.

Exciting jaunts to Brighton and beyond

Most people will seek out a hostel in Brighton that's within walking distance of the city's mainstay sights. The upscale YHA Brighton could be the perfect pick in that regard. It's just steps from the twirling carousels and arcade games of the Palace Pier – now a veritable symbol of the whole town and the East Sussex coast. Days in that area are sure to be particularly memorable, what with the SEA LIFE Brighton aquarium, the people-thronged promenade and oodles of chip shops to enjoy just metres from Brighton Beach. Meanwhile, stays like Kipps Brighton Hostel offer a ticket to the less-explored parts of town. Bedding down there will put the vintage clothes emporiums and vegan cafes of the happening North Laines district right next door – a must for foodies, shoppers and students.
