We're all about socialising, exploring and sea views at Smart Brighton Beach. When you're not out walking along the beach (it's so close!), take up a seat by the window in our lounge and watch the world go by at the old pier. Our outdoor terrace is great for afternoon beers in the sun, while the downstairs bar and club is where the party starts – the perfect place to meet new travel buddies. In the morning, we'll help cure any hangovers with a free breakfast.


Find us on the main road that leads down to the beach. We're a minute's walk to the shoreline, where you'll find laid-back bars during the day and buzzing clubs at night. Spend an afternoon in the arcade hall of Palace Pier (an 8-minute walk away) or get lost in the winding streets lined with shops and quirky café-bars in The Lanes (just 6 minutes away). From Brighton Train Station, walk straight down the main road for 12 minutes, and you can't miss us! Trains from Gatwick Airport arrive here too – it takes about 30 minutes.

Rooms and Dorms

Get to know new people in our mixed dorms with shared or en-suite bathrooms. These all have lockers to keep your backpack in. There are private rooms too, with extra space and their own en-suite – ideal for couples and friends. Choose from a double, a twin or a family room. All beds have fresh sheets and you can hire towels from us!

Extras and activities

We'll make your stay super easy with a 24-hour reception to help you check in and out – even if it's way after everyone else's bedtime. There's a place to keep your luggage too if you don't want to carry it around after checking out. Not a morning person or here for the nightlife? Snooze that alarm – you can arrange a late check out. We've also got free Wi-Fi so you can keep in touch with your online followers.

    Generally, it wasn't too bad, my concern was that I wasn't expecting to see bunk beds in the dorm, which was uncomfortable. Other than that it is located in the central part of town which is good and is very cheap which makes it very worthy if you are someone who isn't fussy. Staff is very pleasant and welcoming.

    Good location and the staff were very helpful. The only issue would be the other people in the dorm - stayed in a Saturday night and the other people in my room were up partying all night and early into the next morning

    No stand out complaints. Not an amazing hostel, not overly clean or overly friendly staff. But I would say you get what you pay for.

    Shared 'secure' storage is a joke, it is a closet with a tone of peoples c**p stacked in it without a light. The fresh sheet where nice but the comforter smelled and I used my coat as a blanket. Bathrooms are small but actually very nice. They are in a full wet room and easy to ensure they are clean. Sad but that is the best part about this place

    This place was disgusting. It was unclean, the kitchen was a state, when I asked for a clean kitchen towel the receptionist gave me a soaking wet stained bath towel. The kitchen was unusable because it was so disgusting with piled up dishes etc. I got bloody bed bugs while staying! The place was essentially for homeless people so the level of safety wasn’t there. There was also no way to lock up personal belongings. In the middle of the night there was a domestic abuse case. I could go on.

    Booked this place to save money, but it was absolutely not worth it. The kitchen was tiny and lacked pretty much everything. I don’t think they wash their duvet covers, so I slept on top of it with all my clothes on. Many of the other guests where likely living there, so it was filled with shady types and the top floor smelled like weed. I’ve been to many bad hostels in my life, but this was by far one of the worst ones. I felt unsafe, unclean, and unwelcome. Wouldn’t ever book again.

    Almost impossible to sleep. Really loud bar downstairs, which was playing music until really late even on a Monday. Mattress really uncomfortable, pillow was super thin. No plug sockets near the bed, only one near the door which was really inconvenient. Packed in like sardines, no privacy, smelt bad. Spend a bit extra and go somewhere else.

    Although location was fantastic, staff were apathetic and as female guests felt extremely unsafe and uncomfortable. Rooms were small, crowded, dirty and smelly. After ten minutes of arrival we left and relocated. Would not recommend for any female solo travelers. Unless you are a sketchy person would not recommend this place.

    I need to have the attention of management.First of all, the location is great , stuff is helpful , facilities were clean and etc... over all, the price of the room was reasonable but How can someone in the management thinks that renting rooms under a bar/disco is a great idea? ( load music ended at 3am) Clearly I see owners dont really care about customers service. The hole idea for a traveler is to stay in a hotel/hostel and "rest". moreover, the check out was at 10:00am. Crazy...
