Location was good and the reception staff were helpful and friendly. Also good value for money. We would return based on this.
The chips in the cafe, woodlice in the camping pod and the camping bathroom was damp and uninviting. If these areas could be improved it would have been perfect.
Lovely location, friendly helpful staff, good value
The room is was very close to the road so it was noisy
Felt like a hotel not a YHA
The room was tiny. Slept four bit you couldn't actually have four people standing up in it at the same time.
VERY small room. Much too noisy as close to main road. Rooms needed in the main building, not just dorms.
comfortable, friendly helpful staff
I liked literally everything! Utterly in love with youth hostels again - and south downs in particular! Amazing buildings and location, too! Felt completely safe.
the female dorm got a bit hot, but actually this didn't matter at all. Noisy drunk people in the night.
Liked all except small bedroom with 6 bunks and small windows, became hot and stuffy.
Loved the building, clean dorms and kitchen and also the location for visiting the South Downs.
Clean Staff lovely Beautiful setting
Noisy road Extremely basic Toilet in granary down a flight of stairs through a locked kitchen door Not very well designed space if travelling with younger children as you would be too far away from them at night
Location and price. Helpful staff. Clean and modern facilities.
One person in the kitchen/ restaurant doing everything. Too many roles for one person to cope with consequently a slow service. Not her fault, she did an excellent job under difficult circumstances.
Beautiful remote countryside
Lovely location, right next to the train station. Clean, comfortable and green. Highly recommended!
good service, clean rooms and toilet.
quite far from everything and the kitchen closes soon and no other food is available if you do not buy it in advance (we arrived at 8:30 pm after a long trip by bike and no food was available...)
Lovely location and convenient in terms of proximity to rail station and South Downs Way. Friendly staff. Facilities and cleanliness of a high standard.
Beautiful setting, helpful and friendly staff, Our little wooden igloo was warm and clean and perfect for our night away together.
Excellent cafe. Slept like a log - very comfortable. Showers clean and hot. Self catering facility excellent.Easy access to rail station. loved my stay!
- A very rich Full English Breakfast at a small price; - The location in a restored farmhouse
- Two 'basic' services were very expensive. The wifi is 3pounds for hour while the towel can be rented at 7 pounds each for night. Too expensive for a youth hostel.
The facilities for this type of accommodation were of a high standard. In particular, our experience staying in the pods was excellent. It's the perfect mix between staying in a tent and a hotel room. The comfort of a solid and cozy shelter, but with the camping feel of sleeping on the floor, well air beds on the floor! And instead of unzipping the tent, you can open up the solid, double glazed french doors to the open air. The distance to the wash rooms and other facilities is not far, and easy in the middle of the night with a well lit path. The on site cafe is a little farther but still very close, and both the breakfast and dinner were good quality and tasty, with friendly staff. The most convenient part is its location, and access to all the wonderful things you can do in the area. Would definitely recommend!
The view out of the pods isn't the greatest, but definitely it does not spoil the experience. And there are not many facilities for young children, though I do understand that YHA is aimed at older children/younger adults, so did not expect big playground areas. But really, it did not affect our stay.
clean, good facilities
longer wait that I anticipated, for my meal.
Relaxed family atmosphere. Great breakfast served up by friendly staff.
No food available on site but had a great meal at the Plough and Harrow in Litlington on YHA staff recommendation.
cleanliness friendly staff quiet lounge location
dorm was far too hot and impossible to get enough fresh air in to change that because the windows only open a small amount, due to security I would think. Do need air conditioning for the summer months. everuone found it difficult to get a good night's sleep due to this problem.
The staff fab, especially the catering staff, very friendly and accomodating. Good value for money, we then went for a walk along the track, simply stunning.
The room we were in, was above reception, so alot of noise from banging doors, would stay again, but in a different room.
Food, superb and amazing value. Wonderful showers and very clean throughout. Kept the character of the building while offering modern facilities.
Our 6 bedded room was very small and smelly (old trainers) only had a small ceiling window, which on a hot humid night was unbearable. However when we asked to change the staff were very helpful and understanding and swopped our room for one with 2 opening windows.
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff - particular thanks to Isabella. Watching the swallows feed in the evening was fabulous. Both dinner and breakfast at the Cafe were lovely too.
Maybe the camping loo could have been a bit closer to the pods for those night time trips......
Poor signage to hostel on Lewes to Newhaven road. Tried to call the emergency number to advise of difficulty to find site before lock out at 10pm. No response from number. Not good gir an emergency contact.
