About Seadragon Backpackers

Seadragon Backpackers is located in a residential district of Brighton, just a pebble's throw from the resort's ever popular beach. Helpful staff, peaceful surroundings and extensive cooking facilities make this down-to-earth hostel a favourite amongst backpackers and weekend visitors alike.

There are six guest bedrooms: a twin room, a private double and four four-bed dormitories, all of which feature memory foam mattresses, Victorian floorboards and a place to sit. Each floor has its own (shared) bathroom facilities.

Guests can relax, watch TV and read in the stylish and airy living room. A large well-equipped communal kitchen is available for residents to cook in. Free Wi-Fi is accessible throughout.

A free buffet-type breakfast is provided for every guest until noon. There are several local supermarkets, cafés and bars located very close by.

Seadragon Backpackers is just over a mile away from the town centre and Brighton Pier.

Positive Reviews

Location is top-notch.

Being away from the town centre means this hostel can provide what many other Brighton accommodations are unable to – a little bit of peace and quiet. That's not to say that it's isolated though. After all, the beach is just 30-seconds walk down the road and Two of Brighton's most popular pubs: The Robin Hood and The Lion & Lobster are located within easy staggering distance!

Free breakfast is a nice touch.

It may not be much: eggs, jams, breads, cereals and hot drinks; but it's available all morning and it gives you enough fuel to get out of the door and find something a little more substantial. The availability of unlimited tea, coffee and milk throughout the day is most welcome too.

Staff are very helpful and knowledgeable.

The fact that all of the hostel's staff are born-and-bred Brightonians means the reception area is an absolute goldmine of local knowledge and insider information. If you want the lowdown on something – anything – to do with Brighton then this is definitely the place to come!
