    Really can't say enough good things about Happy! Exactly what I was looking for! The facilities were great and the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Special shout out to Kevin the receptionist who went above and beyond to make my stay comfortable and gave me lots of hints and tips about the area so i will definitely be staying here again when i visit Brighton!

    Had the BEST time at Happy Hostel. Lovely pods to sleep in, great communal area and the best location spot - so close to Morrison’s, the beach front and fun bars. Special shout out to the most welcoming and helpful staff: Kevin, Jose & Bruno. Had so much fun at this hostel and met so many like minded people. Can’t wait for my return!

    The best place I have ever stayed, my first experience admittedly of a backpackers hostel, however I've stayed in many places. A beautiful environment, so comfortable and welcoming. And the community vibe. The staff are friendly and helpful, particularly the manager, he really went the extra mile and deserves amazing credit for his kindness and the good work he does there. Anybody coming to Brighton to visit will have an amazing time at happy should they choose to stay. LGBT+ No1 Accom ******

    I stayed here for one night with a group of friends and it was exactly what we needed. We had planned quite a busy weekend away so just needed a place to crash and this was perfect. The pod beds were actually very spacious and comfortable, meaning we all managed to get a decent sleep. Also we were only a short walk from the pier which was great. Would definitely recommend for a few nights if visiting Brighton with friends.

    Very good staff who let me check in a little bit earlier. Quite clean. Excellent location in the heart of Kemptown and near to all of the tourist attractions. Doesn’t have a bar but there are plenty of them just around the corner in Kemptown High St. Cleanliness is about average for a hostel. Would definitely stay here again.

    Bed wasn't clean had lot of hair and the cubicle is made of wood(not the strong one) so if a person turns around it makes a lot of noise. The bathroom can be kept clean.

    25th September I arrived at Happy Brighton with my party of 6 to find the room I had reserved and paid a deposit for 4 nights for had been double booked. The staff member at Happy tried to help us find alternative accommodation but was unable to at such short notice so eventually let us have an unsuitable flat for no charge for the first night only. The next day he managed to find a hotel room for us. We had to pay a lot more money than we had budgeted for and our deposit has not been returned.
