HAPPY Brighton stays true to it's name. It is by far the best hostel I've ever stayed in (and I've had my fair share!). Perfect beach/city centre location. The staff make you feel so welcome and offer to help with the little things that make your visit and travel plans run that much smoother. Alex printed out my friends flight... More

Alex was very welcoming and helpful. The location was perfect and just a stone's throw to the sea front. The whole place was clean and had a really nice atmosphere, especially in the common room area/kitchen which was organised and had everything you needed. The rooms were also really funky (the pods offered privacy and comfy/clean bedding). Alex was just... More

My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights. We stayed in the pod rooms which I would definitely recommend! They're spacious and have plug points to charge your phone. We only met Alex briefly (his dad checked us in- also a great guy) but he seemed genuine and rather chilled about checking out times and keeping our bags in... More

I booked this hostel as a lone traveller for a few days in Brighton. The location was fantastic! Couldn't have asked for better- it was right across the street from the beach and pier, just a few blocks away from Royal Pavilion/Museum/shopping/great restaurants and a central bus area, and just a 15 min walk from the train station. Hostel was... More

Had a really awesome stay with Alex and Alice in Brighton. The location of Happy is perfect, close to the shops, north lane and the beach, really easy to get everywhere on foot. The hostel has a really homely vibe and everyone is extremely welcoming and helpful to people traveling by themselves. I made friends with some of the people... More

Alex is very welcoming and his father as well. They're all very helpful if you need anything or have any questions. The location is great and not too far away from the train station or the beach. You won't feel alone there as a solo traveler. I'll definitely return to this happy hostel for another happy stay!

I cannot recommend this place enough both Alex and his dad checked me in they were both friendly, helpful and welcoming . I asked to be upgraded to a better room and they obliged. The hostel itself is very clean and contemporary. I slept in a pod and had a great night's sleep. The location is a stone throw from... More

I stayed in Brighton for a short time and HAPPY was a great choice that was well worth the money. It's only a short distance from the Pier and most other hot spots in Brighton. The rooms were very clean and everyone was very nice and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this hostel to other travelers.
