Stayed here with a group of friends. I had a twin room, which was oppressively hot when I walked in. I turned the heating off, opened the window and the room was still hot the second morning I woke there. The window was also open because, although the signs were very clear that it was a no smoking room, the...

We were attending a friend's son's christening in Hove and decided to stay the night to make a weekend of it. I chose a double en-suite at the Smart Sea View hostel as it was a lot cheaper than many other hotels / BnBs in the area and was close to the reception. I was a little skeptical about booking...

Stayed here for one night recently, the hotel is quite tired and needs a good clean, the breakfast was cold and inedible apart from the pastries. We arrived late in the evening and went straight to sleep, next morning we noticed that the TV was damaged, reported it to reception when we checked out early the next morning. The hotel...

We stayed in a double room, the room is basic but nice , the bed was really big and comfortable, staff is lovely and they are very helpful. Location is great, shops and restaurant 5 minutes walk from the hotel, and it's right on the beach. I would definitively reccomend this hotel, it's cheaper than most hotels in Brighton. I'm...

Cheap and warm. A good atmosphere. Many young people. You can't rely on the continental breakfast :you get just some milk and cereals, toasts and jam. Anyway, because you pay little money, you can' t pretend much more.

Dilapidated. Lousy service. Breakfast was inedible. The room tired, filthy and the bed was uncomfortable. The wifi is ropy. It is a a poor quality hostel with some dodgy tenants. (thus the need to depand a £10 key depoit at check in)

7 of us stayed here for a stag and if I am being totally honest it was absolutely perfect for what we needed it for. Compared to the other accomm in Brighton it was obviously a cheap hostel not an expensive hotel, so we had an idea what to expect.. and I have to say the expectations were exceeded. Both...
