    One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in! Would definitely recommend the dorm with the pods, so private and comfortable with great facilities. Staff are lovely and it’s right in the heart of Brighton and quiet when you need it to be! Thanks

    Happy Brighton was an amazing place to stay. It was very close to everything and the staff were absolutely wonderful. I had the luxury of staying in a pod which was very comfortable and clean. The only suggestion is that the shower needs to be fixed because it kept overflowing and not draining. That was only very minor and it was all around an amazing stay.!

    My first stay in a hostel and definitely not the last! Ricky (the guy at reception) was friendly and helpful in providing info about things to do, etc. Liked the idea of the privacy curtain and lockable storage under the beds. The ensuite bathroom was surprisingly clean. The location was ideal, right by the water and also within a bunch of shops, cafes, and walking distance to wherever you fancy. The only thing is I would've liked a preference for top or bottom bunk. Recommended :)

    HAPPY has a great location and I really enjoyed how the beds were like individual rooms inside of the dorm. The vibe is definitely one of a large apartment rather than a hostel because there are many long term residents in the hostel. The bathroom was bigger and clean.

    A good hostel to stay in, a good location but not the best of atmospheres. It was decent enough but didn't really feel like a hostel. More of a large shared accommodation. Good for a cheap stay in Brighton.

    The hostel is too expensive for the quality of the service. The room was not clean, the staff didn't give us towels and the internet wifi when we got there and then there was no one in the hostel to ask.
