I came to HAPPY Brighton with the intention of staying 5 days; that was February 2016, and in February 2017 I finally turned in my keys! HAPPY is a place you can come for a weekend away and have all the comforts of home, or a place you can make your home. It's a special place in a incredibly convenient...

The managers and people who stay here are both super nice and friendly. I love the welcoming vibe of this little community~~ the rooms are lovely and very considerate of guests' needs (almost too nice for a hostel in some way). I highly recommend it to anyone who looks to have a good time in Brighton.

I stayed 2 weeks in this hostel by my own and I have to say that it's got everything you need. It's super clean (rooms and commun spaces both), tidy and well organized (for exemple tthose little boxes that you can use to put your dry and fresh food in ). The hostel is designed like a "real home". You...

The place was great to stay in and so close to town. Being in a pod gave me my own space which was great to have! It sits in a quiet area of Brighton which is great if you like an early night. Owner was super helpful and greeted me when I arrived.

I am a freelancer and in December 2016 I was struggling to find somewhere inexpensive to rent in Brighton. I came across HAPPY Brighton when I resorted to AirBnB to find somewhere affordable to live. My first interactions through Alex, HAPPY Brighton's owner, were pleasant as he answered my questions clearly and quickly; I think it was the same day....

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With years of travelling experience HAPPY Brighton was started with a clear vision - to offer affordable accommodation in a super location, with a sociable travelling environment, whilst still having total privacy and security. HAPPY Brighton offers 24 hour access to communal spaces that include our dinning room, combined cosy lounge/projector cinema room and a fully equipped kitchen. All bedrooms have private en suite shower rooms and private lockable storage. At HAPPY there is the option of a bunk bed or a unique, private sleeping pod. Our sleeping pod rooms offer great sea views and the pods themselves have private lockable storage, black out privacy curtain, laptop shelf, individual power supply and LED light. A stone throw from the beach, in the heart of the city, tucked away in a private little street, HAPPY Brighton couldn't be better located to help you get the most from this quirky, beautiful and interesting city. HAPPY Brighton is a safe, fun & cosy 'home from home' for all experienced explorers, young travellers and casual roamers. ... more   less
