The location and cost of the room cannot be beat. You are walking distance from shops, the pier, and restaurants. Alex and his father were really excellent hosts. I would HIGHLY recommend booking your next stay in Brighton at HAPPY!

The 8 pod female-only room has a spacious en-suite bathroom and surprisingly I never had to...

All bedrooms have private en suite shower rooms and private lockable storage. At HAPPY there is the option of a bunk bed or a unique, private sleeping pod. Our sleeping pod rooms offer great sea views and the pods themselves have private lockable storage, black out privacy curtain, laptop shelf, individual power supply and LED light. A stone throw from the beach, in the heart of the city, tucked away in a private little street, HAPPY Brighton couldn't be better located to help you get the most from this quirky, beautiful and interesting city.
