    Cool. I did not like the pods. I should have known since I suffer from claustrophobia. I could not fault the staff though. Jack is cool. He went to sell his art In Lisbon. And his dad comes from The Wirral. ‘Go ed lad, make us a nice cup of tea’ That made me laugh. My dad used to say that to me. L.

    Stayed for 2 nights with friends, found the location to be amazing as it was very central and within walking distance of all attractions, especially the pier and beach. Communal area was very comfortable and had all the facilities needed. Staff were lovely and super helpful, would definitely stay again when in Brighton!

    Nice staff and good ambient. Beds with comfortable matress, no metal bed, so not noises, and with a courtain to keep your privacity. Toilet with shower in every room so you don´´t need to move out of your room to have a shower or to go to the toilet. I would recommend to anyone visting the city.

    Friendly, clean hostel, in not too bad shape. The point are a good idea, and give you some privacy and chatting from the light, although the top ones at least are not completely enclosed so some gets in over the top. Overall good value for money though.

    Very well located hostel in Brighton, right next to the Pier and close walking distance to the bus station. Staff were incredibly welcoming and helpful! However, the wifi was not very consistent or strong and cleanliness was an issue. I stayed in the “pods” and there was old grape vines on top of the cupboard and crumbs on the ledge next to where I laid my head. The shower could also do with a good scrub. Nice for a couple of nights.

    Very Good

    Overall, it was a nice hostel. The staff were wonderful. The female dorm we were in had a bathroom that was pretty gross hair and dirt caked in under the sink and mildew or mold in the shower. The pods were incredibly hot. The staff came up and cracked the windows for us so it was bearable but HAPPY should really consider putting mini clip on fans or something in each pod for air circulation. The location, however, was fantastic. Like a 5 minute walk to the beach and pier.

    The only thing going for this place is the amazing location. The kitchen is a mess (there are still NO hand towels), the wifi is non-existent and the place smells musty as the carpets have seen better days. I’m sure this place used to be happy, but now it needs a good industrial clean from top to bottom, and a staff that will give a crap.
