Overall a good stay. If you are looking for somewhere to just flop after a day wandering around seeing the many things Brighton has to see, it's great for what you pay. There's a nice colelction of different shampoos and conditioners in the bathroom too - so if you forget to bring your own, like we did, then you should be able to find something that suits you better than those godawful hotel shampoos. The chairs are very comfy and the kicthen would definitely be suitable for a short stay if you wanted to skip on eating out (there's several supermarkets less than 10mins walk away).
There are a few issues that could be improved upon though: The crockery wasn't entirely clean for one, neither was the top of the microwave but I can write that off a small slip up. The staircase is narrow with quite small steps and the road outside gets very noisy at night so light sleepers be aware - but that's hardly the owners fault. More significantly however: the shower leaks in a few places so the floor is obviously water damaged which I expect will get worse with time. But the most significant issue is the inetrnet: it's atrocious 2005 era potato internet that is clearly a single connection for all the flats and likely has a few locals leeching off it too. We tried to stream stuff in the evening but it was hopeless with constant stuttering. The room has netflix but that wasn't any use for us.
Still, it's mostly clean, well located and comfortable - worth staying if you're on a budget.
