Came here for an overnight stay for my sister's hen party. It was over a bank holiday and all other hotels were too expensive at over double the price of Smart Sea View. We stayed in the hotel section rather than the hostel. From reviews were expecting the worse but as only there for 1 night took a chance. All... More

One night stay at twenty quid per person can't really be argued with when on a budget. I was expecting cheap and cheerful. However in reality it was cheap and grim. Upon arrival a rude receptionist greeted us and gave us our bedding for the evening, which we had to bring down ourselves in the morning. The A4 print out... More

Stayed here as a group of 3 girls, for a 2 night trip in Brighton - Comedy Festival and night out! Staff seemed helpful enough and were happy to help. We booked via booking.com and annoyingly it says that there is free car parking - there isn't!! You have to pay £5 a day and get up at 9am to... More

This is one of the cheapest places in town. I've rented a bed in a dorm with 15 beds per room. Shared the room with some heavily wasted students, with bottles of vodka on the floor and loud music all night. Well, that's what you get if you stay in a cheap dormitory, so just be aware what you're buying.... More

This just has to be one of the worst hotel I've had the misfortune staying in. I know it's cheap and it's in a good location but the standards of hygiene and maintenance are just unacceptable. The breakfast was meant to be continental but I'm trying to think what continent would be applicable. Our room was so poor it had... More

This has to be the most dirty disgusting place ive eva stayed. One night was clearly wayy too much. Firstly the receptionist was arrogant and rude. He checked us into a dirty room that clearly hadnt been cleaned or bed changed since the last resident so after he went and checked because for some reason he didnt believe it hadnt... More

Firstly, everyone should note that this hotel is in Hove, not Brighton. It's a pleasant half hour evening stroll along the prom to get to the 'action' but definitely a cab back!!! Secondly, 'parking available' is advertised but it transpires that there is not a dedicated hotel car park but pay and display street parking to the side and rear... More

The beds weren't clean so we asked for a new room. In our new room the plugs did not work. Far away from Brighton town center. The hotel looks like an old labyrinth. At least the staff is really nice and the breakfast is ok. But if I have to go back to Brighton I would not stay in this... More

We stayed in the "hotel" rather than the hostel rooms. I found it clean and the beds to be very comfy. Not much spare space in the 3 bed room but it was ok. Breakfast was basic. As long as you don't mind waiting for luke warm sausage, beans and scrambled egg then you'll be fine. Plenty of groups of... More

Stayed here for a stag do and feared the worst but it was actually ok. Had a twin room, bed was comfy, breakfast had variety. Not worth the money paid but was peak season and for only one night. Windows are a bit thin and let quite a bit of noise through but for the purpose we used it for... More
