Location is is far from the city but easy to get to from MRT train. There is NO signs to locate the premises, hence very difficult to find. Customer service, well she is in training and she needed to ask her manager about simple questions.In the 8 bed dorm, the room was huge with air-condition and a balcony. Beds are OK, not the most comfortable bed but the room and sheets are clean. Free washing machine and kitchen and a fridge. Showers are small but clean and HOT water.

Happy Taipei hostel is a lovely place to stay. Everyone was so friendly, the rooms are small but really clean, so as the bathrooms. The public rooms are modern and clean as well. I stayed here for 6 nights and it couldn't have been any better. The hostel is right next to shilin metro station so it's also a good place to stay if you want to do some day trips. A big plus point is the awesome breakfast and the free washingmashine, adapters etc.

Great location cuz you're super close to the MRT Subway and it's only a 2mins walk to the biggest night market in Taipei. We went to the night Market almost every night. Great breakfast menu (not just coffee and bread) which included a salad, fruits, and other warm food.

We were very happy with our stay at happy Taipei. Very friendly staff and great location / facilities. The only thing I would suggest is to make the hostel a little easier to find. We loved the hostel so much that we booked another night for our return to Taipei.

I would give this hostel a 100% if it wasn't for the fact that there was a miscommunication with the cleaners which lead to a few of my things being thrown out. There needs to be better communication between staff and cleaners, but beyond that, it was fantastic. I extended my stay despite the snafu.

What an amazing hostel! Staying at Happy Taipei was one of the best hostel experiences ever. It's located right next to the famous Shilin Night Market, the staff is superb and everything you need is included in the price (e.g. washing machine and breakfast). I highly recommend Happy Taipei and will stay here again when returning to Taiwan!
