    Wow! Would go back and would recommend! Amazing hostel. Incredible staff. They were very accommodating with the storage of my luggage (before my check -in and after my check-out) Hostel was clean and has a perfect location.

    My stay at Happy was exactly what I was looking for; perfect location (close to the beach and pier, lots of public transport options nearby and very close to the main shopping areas), helpful staff, comfortable bed in a quiet room with its own bathroom, and great communal areas and kitchen facilities. The only negative is that the entire place has a bit of a bad smell to it and I could only put it down to the carpets as they looked pretty old and in need of replacement. Otherwise it was great!

    Was a really nice place to stay only thing I would say is that there isn't any air conditioning which meant it got quite hot in the pods me and my friend were staying in but other than that it was a really lovely experience

    Fantastic location a stone throw away from the lanes and the beach. We stayed for Brighton Trans Pride and the hostel had every thing we needed pretty much. People staying were super friendly. It would have been nice to see more staff on site during our stay, as we had to amend our booking and everything was sign posted to call and txt. After several attempts to try and sort this by calling, I didn't find email to be very responsive to solve the issue.

    Overall a good stay. Staff were friendly and the location is great! Good privacy in the pods but I found the beds uncomfortable. Nice to have an ensuite but the shower was either really hot or cold, no in between. Lot of stairs to walk up without an elevator if you’re on a top floor. Kinda wish staff were more available on site.

    Clean room good shower. Location is beautiful backing right onto the seafront and the communal areas were good. Quite pricy for a hostel and paying the money could come across sketchy being a bank transfer but overall decent.

    For £41 this hostel felt like a rip off. If it was £20 then ok, great location, but the fabric of the place was degraded, scruffy, and the sofas stank in the communal area. Depressing! The windows didn't open far at all which also made the dorm room very hot...sadly I won't be staying here again.

    This hostel is on the bottom of my list. I did like the staff, I believe they are doing their best to keep an awful place in order. However, the place was disgusting. Apart from the bed that seemed quite ok, the bathroom was dusty. I got a toilet tissue to wipe the radiator and the amount of dust that came of in only one go was astronomical. There is no fan, so in a warmer night we had to open the bathroom window to get some air going through and this why I don’t think this place is safe at all. I just cros

    only met a staff member by chance as i was trying to get in otherwise you can stay the whole time without speaking to anyone. not a very smooth way of paying final payment (involves a bank transfer then screenshotting confirmation and emailing to get your key, bit of a faff if in a rush) the pod rooms are really comfy and beds are clean but way too small a room for 8 of them and one shared bathroom which has seen better days great for one night but probably would struggle for longer
