Perhaps this is a lesson for myself and pals but what a prison like experience this place proved to be. Ended up sleeping in the car. Had a room with Santa wrapping paper covering window. Enough said.

Its a no frills basic accommodation. We wanted a night in Brighton. We stayed in a twin room that had all we needed. It was clean and we had a good nights sleep. Buffet breakfast. The word smart though seemed out of place.

My room smelled of piss for most off my stay. Stayed and worked in quite a few hostels, this is without doubt the worst hostel. Poor management, but reception staff were nice. I would not recommend. Brighton has many other options.
