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.

    Was pleasantly surprised having read some bad reviews prior to visit. My 'heart' said go anyway & glad I did. Initially no exterior lighting but was rectified in 24 hrs. Staff member on duty in clean and well lit lobby was friendly and helpful. The room was small, 3 tiered bunk bed ..adequate (it's a cheap hostel after-all) The 'en-suite' toilet and shower was very 'bijou', but clean & looked new. Breakfast included; nice surprise! Clean bedding,though not sure about duvet cover.Other guests ok

    Great location, easy to find & brilliant value. Not enough sockets in the dorms though, and facilities are extremely basic. Perfect for a cheap break ☺️

    A terrible experience. Too many drug users and dealers at the hotel. And very nosiy at nights between 11 to 3 o'clock. Keep away If you don't like drugs and noise.

    Want the cleanest! And the breakfast included was rather underwhelming! Obviously there’s a nightclub below so don’t plan on staying there if you like to sleep overnight. And it’s down a kinda creepy ally. But biggest and pretty much only good thing is that its right on the beach and in town.

    The price is extremely affordable and close to the beach and center city which is nice. But, the hostel itself is really old, the bathrooms smells like mold, the rooms are gross and the club underneath the hostel makes the rooms shake. I would not recommend staying here, spend a few more dollars and stay someplace nicer.
