Otherwise known as "London by the sea," Brighton is the perfect place to book a hostel. Boasting a lively, young population in a southern UK setting, Brighton is teeming with entertainment, shops, restaurants, bars, and clubs. There are also fantastic festivals pumping even more life into the city over the summer months.

All of the Brighton hostels are perfectly placed near all that the buzzing city has to offer. You’ll be just a stone’s throw away from all of the tourist attractions, from the magnificent Royal Pavilion and its gardens, the Brighton Pier, and the remains of the eerie West Pier that burned down in 2003. The city now also boasts its very own "Brighton Eye," with great views of the surrounding area. Whilst strolling the seafront, make sure you pick up the ultimate souvenir, a piece of Brighton rock!

The Brighton Lanes are the perfect place to pick up an unusual gift or one-off garment, with a large array of boutique and secondhand shops. When lunchtime hits, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to cheap and tasty food, if you can afford to stray from the kitchen of your Brighton hostel. Vegetarians will have a field day, as the city is bursting with veggie restaurants, from all-you-can-eat Indian meals to salad bars and organic cafes. Non-vegetarians, make sure you sample the local dish, fish and chips.

For party-goers, Brighton is the perfect place to dance or drink the night away, with plenty of clubs lined up along the seafront that are pumping until the very early hours, catering for all tastes -- pop, rock, indie, gay, straight. One of the joys of Brighton is that there's so much going on, but yet everything is so close. So whether your Brighton hostel is located along the seafront or in the town centre, you’ll be able to stumble home within ten minutes.
