I booked out a 12 bed dorm at the Smart Sea View for my birthday and first ever trip to Brighton. It was one of the few places available and there is no denying that it is in a great location. Very nervous about the reviews but since we weren't going to spend much time in the room I thought... More

I only stayed for one night and was in a single room, so my experience can't speak for everyone. I had no trouble with anything here though. The place itself looked a little shabby but my room was pleasant and clean with a modern en-suite bathroom, TV, and a window overlooking the beach. I was expecting a bit of noise... More

I stayed here for one night on Saturday after a night out in Brighton. The people on the desk didn't seem very friendly or welcoming. The bed and room were fine, although the other people staying in it were quite loud in the morning and left the floor in the room and bathroom very dirty and covered in sand. This... More

We have booked a bedroom for 6 but when my two friends and I arrived the guy at the reception told us that we can't get all in one room if we want to stay in a bedroom for 6 people. So he suggested us to split up and that one of us (we where all girls) should sleep alone... More

We booked this as a group of lads and I had no idea what to expect. It is an old building in need of a huge amount of work to bring it up to scratch - probably too much work. The place is scruffy, cheap and cheerful. The outside is in need of even some tidying up, there were beer... More

Room was on the bottom floor first problem is that the windows didn't lock, and we were just down a short ledge - so easy for break ins, only one iron throughout the place! Then there were problems with the cards - we had to change this twice, then the bathroom shower leaked all over the place - for £58... More

I booked this room for my son as he wanted a cheap place to stay. He said that he would have preferred to stay somewhere else as it is not very nice! I went to the reception to ask if my son's booking was on the computer and they couldn't find him and were huffing and puffing as they looked.... More

This hostel was definitely the most disgusting hostel I have ever stayed at. I stayed for one night with a group of friends and we shared the same room with bunk beds. After seeing the comical triple bunk beds with little to no space to sleep in, the ceiling leaked water all over the electrical socket we had plugged our... More
