As most people have commented, the Hotel itself is fine for the price. Me and my girlfriend stayed one night. The double room was tiny, the TV was useless and the sink was in the room, not the toilet. You wouldn't want to stay in a room that size for long- but it's adequate and clean plus the staff were helpful and let us check in early.
The street it's on is called Hastings East, it runs all the way into the city and it's about a 20 min leisurely walk with some good pubs and cafes along the way near the city end. Closer to the hotel it's like pretty rough though and anybody who is remotely put off by that should really re-consider- there are drug deals, people shooting up and prostitutes all visible- plus a mass of homeless to navigate. I'm not exaggerating and i've lived in rough areas before. Although, and i stress this is only my experience, we didn't get hassled by anyone.. that can be more about how you conduct yourself or just luck. We walked into the city along the street 3 times, and the last trip we took the parallel street and avoided all the craziness, just because it made it quicker than sidestepping everyone. The pub connected to it is probably the best in immediate proximity, and we tried a few.
So- cheap, clean budget hotel, but odd location.
