We felt very welcome at this hostel from the second we entered, Tom greeted us and he's a great guy, he speaks super good english and he armed us with all the information that we needed as soon as we got there. He's a real hard worker too, he's there working hard cleaning the entire hostel for hours everyday, he's really thorough and everywhere is always very clean! Room was great, beds are comfy, air con was great. No negatives at all and 7elelven bakeries and good eateries very closeby!!

The boss was helpful and great. He was so kind enough for letting me get in to the hostel by using password to leave my luggage while he was out(via phone). The room i had is a queen size bed and so comfy. The space is just nice for one traveller to put the luggage. All the facilities are well-equipped and easy to use. The heater for shower just kind of hard to control and luckily is it summer season now. It would be great if there's a small dustbin in the room so it will be much convenient.

Very clean, quiet, comfortable, safe, near to Zhongshan station, well-equipped with locker, air-conditioner, hot shower, washing machine, water cooler and water heater. It's just that there is no standby staff at the hostel.

They have no kitchen to use and the place is small,I stayed in a 2person room and I was done cuz finally nobody came but sharing that room with an stranger would have been a bit uncomfortable.anyways,the location is good and for passing just the night as I did, it is convenient.

It was a pleasant stay at Taipei Happy Family Hostel and I would definitely be returning to this hostel should I visit Taipei again. Manager Tom was really helpful and welcoming towards the guests and the hostel facilities and accommodation factors were thoroughly covered. No regrets at all!

I booked a single room and paid deposite, filled arrival 22:00. I get there by 20:30, ring the bell but nobody show up. I call the host, he said that the room was taken by another one, a bed was still available, but he can only show up 23:30. I am very angry, asked if he expect me to wait outside for 3 hours, then he gave me pw and i enter the hostel. He explained it happened becos I didn't reply their confirm letter, the deposite is taken by hostelworld, dislike hostelworld and this hostel.

The location is good as it is near Zhongshan station. very convenient to go to Taipei station or other tourist attractions. however, it is quite noisy if you live in the room near window because there are loud echoes in the street. the hygiene is average. The overall hygiene of the hostel is good but I found out my leg was full of red spots caused by fleas. I wondered they were caused by fleas in the bed.

Happy Family, the name fits. Tiny hostel with only a few rooms. Shared bathroom doesn't do anything here, since it really is like a family house. Place was clean and nice. Only downside is the loud street.. But since I am used to it, nothing bad. Bed was fluffy and nice, free air conditioning. Easy to find, if you are smart enough to look at a map. Friendly staff. Good stay for us. Outside looks a bit creepy but comfortable inside.

Took a while to find the place; didn't realise there were two outlets: Lane 56 and Lane 135. Regardless, both of them are 5 mins from Taipei Main Station and Zhongshan station respectively. Not much of a lively atmosphere, more of a place for sleep only. Beds were clean and comfortable and showers were clean too its hot water. Aircon provided in the summer!
