Stayed at Smart Brighton Beach for The Great Escape Festival. Exceptionally clean compared to other hostels we've stayed in before. Location couldn't be better, just off the seafront between West Street and Middle Street. Will definitely be staying there again.

This hostel is a super great value for the money! The location is amazing-right by the water. 5 minute walk to everything, and super friendly staff! My only complaint would be about the bathrooms. There were two bathrooms (sink/shower/toilet) in the 21 Bed Dorm. Seeing as there were up to 21 people in the room at any time, I think there should be another option! At least having a washroom in the lobby to just use so you don't have wait for people to finish showering would be great.

The location is near to the beach, pier and the local markets, which save a lot of time to travel, but it is on top of a club, which is super noice at night, you may not sleep well at night

Great location, really clean with friendly staff especially Richard the security man! Great value for money, would strongly recommend. The hostel is right above the walkabout so music is playing into the early hours of the morning (I stayed for one Saturday night) so need to bare in mind if you're a light sleeper.

The room was clean and secure. Location good. Communication via email with questions was patchy - had to chase up after going over a week with no reply. Unhappy with the 5% surcharge for paying with a debit card, which isn't mentioned in any of the T&C's. Also, room card deposit was advertised at £5 - we were charged £10 and this also had to be cash, which again we found no mention of prior to arriving - difficult and inconvenient for large groups.

This hostel is located directly over a nightclub. I don't expect much when paying 25£ per night but a bed that is 6 foot long is to short and as its an enclosed bunk I could not stretch out at all. To put it bluntly regardless of facilities at least being able to sleep is expected!!I am taller than the average person but it still made comfort difficult!! However until 3:00 am it was not important as the music from night club literally vibrated the whole room and all the metal bed frames in it!!

I would like to have seen lockers available to lock up medium sized valuables like a laptop.
