Happy Family Hostel II
Ranked #512 of 585 Hotels in Taipei
Reviewed 24 December 2012

This is a backpacker style hostel which is full of humanity. Both the owner John and helper Mike are so friendly that they claimed they let the last-minute tourist to stay in the living room w/o charges in late night. John also offer a low-floor room with a double-decker bed for my mother who has difficulty in climbing staircase so that my brother can take care of her and stay together w/o extra charges.

Others in brief:
Free wifi and PC, washing machine, drinking water, hot shower, living room with sofas to meet and chat with friends from around the world, balcony, NO lift just staircase up to 5 floor good for limb muscles! A convenient store just down stair, 10-min walk to multiple transportation stations (MRT, buses, taxi), luggage safekeeping.

Room Tip: Be sure to contact them before 11PM prior checking-in. No toiletries provided.

The hostel is close to the Taipei Main Station and the bus terminal. You can get to anywhere in the city with a short ride.

The service is excellent and the owner/manager is always here to help. Both John and Mike are very knowledgeable on local attractions and events.
