Staying at Happy Taipei was an awesome experience. The staff is super helpful and gives recommendations/directions. The free breakfast was AMAZING- fresh fruits, toast, rice + sausage plus free tea all day. It is in a great location close to the MRT and tons of restaurants and street vendors.

I had never connected and made friends with so many people at a hostel. The hostel itself is spacious with 2 main common areas for socializing and the location is very close to the Shilin market. (like 100 meters away close) Staff was super helpful and it's very easy to get around on the MRT.

Great place! Really clean, nice showers, comfortable beds that fit a 1.9-meter-tall giant like me. The limited desk/check-in hours are kind of annoying and it didn't seem like a very social place (did not see anyone hanging out in common rooms at all for three days), but would overall very much recommend, especially at that price and with such a convenient location.

This place was great! Everything was super clean; the bathrooms & bedrooms are spacious. They serve a great breakfast--fruits, veggies, rice, salad, bread, peanut butter, jam, Nutella, coffee, & tea. The staff is extremely sweet. They offer free laundry service. It's also located only 5 minutes from an amazing night market. Will stay again!

Was a nice looking hostel and the staff were very helpful. Wished it had been a bit more social but it seemed like there were quite a few people staying there to work. Was a very good Location.

Hostel is on the second floor with steps leading up. Only stay there if travelling light. Staff were friendly. Location right beside Shilin Market and near to bus stops and shilin station, very convenient for travelling with buses straight to various places. Rooms are relatively clean but slightly small with less space for luggages. Beds are with curtains. Facilities are pretty standard, most people keep to themselves.
