    Happy taipei hostel is surely the best place to be at! 1 min walk to Shilin Night Market ! Beside a big police station ! Less than 5 mins to mrt station ! Many taxi and buses around! For me, I don’t need a luxurious or grand place to stay at. I just need a place to sleep. Hence , happy taipei hostel is the best place to be at! Cheap , friendly staffs , cozy , security , location , what more? I HAVE BEEN STAYING SINCE 2017 and this is my 5th or 6th time here!

    Even though the hostel is quite hidden, it's in a good location (next to one of the most famous night markets) and has wonderful and helpful staff. The room was nice, although there are no curtains in the beds, which most hostels in Taiwan normally have. Doing the laundry is FREE, something new! A nice and chill hostel, very international atmosphere. I very much enjoyed my time in this hostel!

    Fantastic little hostel, for the price, one of the best in Taipei. Location in Shilin, very close to the famous night market. Spacious dorms with comfy beds and individual curtains, clean and organised separated bathrooms, different floors with different common areas with free tea, interesting design and a nice vibe of travelers.

    Big issue is as it has no sign on the doors or name above it. Took me long time to find it. Number of the building on the Google is wrong and hostel wolrd website has none. apart from that the hostel was nice, lots of seating area to mingle, for the price was good . Offers free washing clothes with provided washing powder and plenty of space to dry the clothes. Location is close to centre by train. Plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants around.

    This hostel was in a great location - close to Shilin Night Market and train station which made getting to other parts of Taipei super easy. Staff organised a super easy late/self check in for me which was great. A lot of stairs - be aware if you have a large suitcase. Beds were a little noisy and they common areas were quite loud - echoed into the rooms. Other than that would stay here again for sure!

    It’s on the cheaper end, it seems to be aimed at long term travelers, the location is good, and the beds are nice. The problems are: 1. Exceptionally weird check in experience. 2. The room I was in smelled terrible. 3. The bathroom had visible mold. 4. The towel rental is extortionate (most hostels in Taipei charge 50ntd for a large towel) 5. The bathroom was so small it was hard for me to use it. I’ll probably stay here again, but it’s definitely not my favorite hostel in Taipei.

    A very okay hostel! Beds are comfy enough, faculties are decent and there is a common room. WiFi didn’t reach my room and there was only one single bathroom for my floor which had at least 12 beds between 3 rooms. The bathroom had a funny smell but was clean. The showers were on a different floor but also were clean. I felt like the room had a good amount of space. The common room was ok, I mostly hung out there to get WiFi. The hostel is a very close walk to the Shilin night market & metro.

    PROS: great guests - quiet/respectful, sociable, several cozy common areas, 2 free washing machines & plenty of outdoor space and hangers for air drying, relatively clean, near MRT & night market, staff is very responsive (and understanding to me when we had an unexpected medical issue) Cons: older/worn down building & facilities - price was a bit high considering this, no coffee, bed & pillow not very comfortable, towel & locker cost extra, difficult to find & so is the OK Mart where you meet !
