My daughter was kept awake all night by a couple shagging in our dormitory. Cheapest breakfast i have ever seen - squash, instant coffee, toast, margarine, and a plate with jam on it. Made me glad to get home - so that's a plus.

Bit weird. Went twice in one week and had two really different experiences. First time was great! Just what you'd expect for paying £80 or so on a Saturday night in Brighton. No spare pillows which is a shame and had a very hostel-y vibe with lots of teenagers lurking on the stairs, but basically not bad at all. Second...

Stayed here with my mother Mon, Tues, Weds. Room was very warm but super clean and lots of tea, coffee, biscuits. Bathroom also spotless and super shower. Bit noisy in the evening but nothing that bothered us too much, suspect it would be much noisier during weekends. Room felt safe and we could double lock from inside. Lovely breakfast, hot...

I stayed here for three nights....shared a twin room with my daughter. the room was spotlessly clean....there were generous tea and coffe supplies....the bathroom was excellent....the TV worked perfectly...our towels were changed each day!! There is quite a lot of coming and going due to half the building being used as a hostel but that didn't cause us any problems....

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...
