Once a separate town to neighbouring Brighton, Hove is now a proud part of the city of Brighton and Hove. Yet, it still retains its own distinct charms. Hove is very much the genteel side of Brighton. This isn’t to stay it doesn’t offer its own vibrant cafes, bars and restaurants: it just does so with a touch more class.

Hove is also, mercifully, much less hilly than its cosmopolitan partner, which makes it much more gentle on the feet.

If you are looking to enjoy the genteel side of this city, or for a quieter bolthole to escape to when the night-time revelries are over, then a hostel in Hove offers the perfect option. What’s more, whilst much of the city’s accommodation prices seem to edge ever higher a hostel in Hove will allow you to enjoy all the fun of the seaside without needing to break the bank.

Hostels for the South Downs

If you are planning to hike in the South Downs then a hostel in Hove is ideal to enjoy the area’s restaurants and bars after a hard day’s walking. There are fantastic trails, suitable for those on foot or those on their bikes, all over the hills that surround Hove. Of course, you’ll need to drag yourself away from the lure of the beach, bars, shops and clubs first!

Hostels for the sea

The long seafront promenade that runs between Hove and Brighton, and beyond, is testament to the importance of the sea to this coastal city. Get your skates on to enjoy it like the locals do!

Hostels for history

It was the sea that first led to Hove’s development into a rather swanky, and highly desirable, residential area. In the 1780s, the deliciously decadent Prince of Wales began visiting Brighton with his mistress. From this came the oriental fantasy in stone that is the Royal Pavilion. This can be easily reached from your Hove hostel.

It also gave rise to those beautiful Regency squares that characterise Hove’s seafront. You will find some rather elegantly converted Georgian mansions on the seafront that now serve as luxury hostels, with ensuite facilities, sea views and marvellously, extravagant decor.

Hostels for sightseeing

A stone’s throw from Hove is the latest attraction in the city. Known as the i360 it offers panoramic views from on high of the surrounding city and countryside. Enjoy a cocktail as you take in the scenic views.

Hostels for shopping and eating out

One of Brighton and Hove’s main draws are its eclectic mix of independent traders, craft stalls, designer boutiques and high-end jewellers. Head towards the North Laine area of Brighton, a short walk or bus ride from your Hove hostel, to experience shopping at its quirkiest. Or, head into the Lanes themselves for swanky restaurants and bespoke jewellers. In Hove, itself, George Street and Church Street offer a stunning selection of shops that are surrounded by a fine choice of dining options.

Hove’s charms

Those gorgeous Georgian squares, the pebbled seafront, the expansive promenade, the upmarket shops, the wide range of excellent restaurants and the cooler-than-thou nightlife are all what makes staying in Brighton and Hove such a joy.
