Happy is the absolute best hostel I've ever stay in! The staff is beautifully caring and funny, the sleeping areas are convenient and practical and the shared rooms are kept clean and fully equipped! I travel as a young woman on my own and I also felt very safe and at home at the premises. I only stayed for three... More

I spent 2 nights at Happy Brighton. Below is my review with all the main points that I usually look for when researching hostels. Staff: Alex is the most accomodating host. He obviously goes above and beyond, it makes the place feel like your crashing at a mates place. He's extremely helpful! He gave us a tour of the hostel,... More

Perfect location by the sea just 5 minutes away from the station and the Lanes, yet on a quiet street. The pods are fantastic! Once you close the curtain it's like having your own little private room even though you're sharing with several people. The 8 pod female-only room has a spacious en-suite bathroom and surprisingly I never had to... More

I went to this hostel with 3 other friends and it felt like home. The pods we stayed in were clean and comfy and the room was spacious. Spent a lot of time in the living room/kitchen where we met a lot of amazing people (who we are already missing so much). You can watch movies, listen to music, or... More

It was clean and comfortable. The location was really convenient, close to the seafront. For what I got I felt it was really good value. The staff were absolutely lovely and the whole stay was great, I would absolutely recommend and would stay again.

I stayed 2 nights in a shared pod-room at Happy Brighton in August. The host Alex is very welcoming and nice, and he showed me around in the building. Alex also answeres emails quickly if you have anything to ask prior to your visit. The pod room is not very spacious, but there is enough storage space for luggage and... More

It took me so long to write this review,because I didn't find the right words to describe my stay at the Happy Brighton. Before I went there I looked at the reviews and I couldn't believe why everybody had just positive reviews of it. Because normally this can't be true but after I checked in Happy I totally got it...

I stayed at Happy for 5 nights in August. It was the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in and I’ve stayed in over a dozen. Alex, Alice, and Alex’s dad were all helpful, friendly and efficient and could not do enough to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The facilities are great and cleanliness was superb throughout. The large... More

We stayed at happy Brighton for one month and we couldn't have made a better decision. The place was very clean and the common area had an excellent environment (mostly because the people who were there were very kind and open-minded). You can chat and meet new people while having a nice dinner made in a very well equipped kitchen.... More
