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

Looking at the prices for hotels near the Brighton seafront thse is a very cheap hotel and mostly for young people. We had a plesant stay, 3 persons in a familie room for 75 punds. Clean and speacy. The shower only had hot water and the windows are only one pcs of glass so would not come back in winter.... More

This must be the worst place to stay in Brighton. It was me and nine others staying in a room during Pride. Picture the scene when we saw five iron bunk beds that looked like cages (fine), most of them broken (not fine), with grimy, smelly foam mattresses. The lights also did not work in this tiny cell of a... More

Stayed for pride weekend. When I arrived the staff wouldn't let me use my card even though it says on my confirmation that I can use a card so long as I pay the surcharge which I didn't mind, so yeah had to pay it all in cash! We were in the basement room which was really noisy, there was... More

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
