Seadragon Backpackers, 36 Waterloo Street, Brighton and Hove, BN3 1AY


Seadragon Backpackers is close to the sea front in the seaside resort of Brighton. The kitchen is the focal point of the hostel, where people have been meeting over a cup of tea and a slice of toast since 2006. There's a sunny airy living room and a choice of private rooms and small dorms, some with a sea view. Use the travel guides and maps provided together with the free WiFi to plan you next adventure. Tea, coffee, sugar, milk, cooking oil and herbs all available in the kitchen 24 hours a day and a self service breakfast of cereal, toast, jams and fresh eggs is included in the over night fee. There also a laundry service, just like the best 5 star hotels.

Seadragon Backpackers in Brighton re-opens!

April 16th 2021

Based on the governments roadmap to recovery, we are looking at being able to operate again as a Hostel. We are now accepting bookings for our double and twin rooms from May 17th (in line with the rule of 6) and for all our rooms from July 15th. We are waiting on clarification from the government on communal spaces and sharing of accommodation, so assume these are not available until we let you know.

We will be keeping people informed via our facebook page, so like us on facebook to be automatically kept in the loop.

We are sooooo looking forward to welcoming you all back again for a well earned break in Brighto nas soon as we can.

Booking direct at Seadragon Backpackers for 10% off!

February 28th 2020

Here at Seadragon Backpackers we would like to let it be known that we appreciate those who book direct with us. So much so we offer 10% off for those who book direct with us.

With this in mind why not come stay in Brighton, a lively city very popular with backpackers and free spirits. There’s plenty to do, museums, cafes, aquariums, beaches, nightclubs and everything in between. The facilities at Seadragon allow for self catered folk, we make sure to keep stocked with oils and spices. And if by the time breakfast rolls around you don’t feel up to cooking a tasty breakfast of fresh eggs, cereals, toast, jams, tea, coffee comes as standard in the price of your room. All this and the knowledge that you’ve supported a independent  small business.
