Really nice place to stay for young people, really close to the beach, to some nightclubs, to the city centre. The loandlord is really nice, the common rooms are pretty and comfortable, everything needed in the kitchen. Just interesting to note that it is a hostel and not a flat as me and my friend though.

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!
