    Cool vibe at this hostel. Really liked the honor system for the beer in the fridge and met some really interesting people during my stay here. Additionally, there are many toilets and showers, which in a hostel, is much appreciated. Finding the place was tricky, though and the single private room is right next to the kitchen.

    I stayed here for two nights, and had a good experience. To be honest, I had expected a lot more after reading all the glowing reviews. The hostel doesn't look impressive from the outside, and I wouldn't have found this place without the step-by-step guide on their website. Staff was helpful and friendly though, and gave little tips on good... More

    This is my first time to experience hostels in my own country, and it really impressed me. Eight elephant is a small but warm hostel, and it really makes you feel like home. Staffs here are really hospitable and easy-going. Plus, the whole atmosphere is quite relaxing. I sat on the sofa and talked with travelers from all over the... More

    Great stay at this hostel with really friendly staff. The location is great at this end of the city and is close to many attractions and the main railway station. Stayed in a twin room and it was spacious enough and clean. Entire hostel was spotless.

    On my third trip to Taipei, I decided to stay at the Eight ElephantsHostel with a friend. This was after all one of the top rated hostels in Taiwan (from Hostelworld), so my expectations were high. Arriving in Taipei on a midnight, this was not the most easy to find hostel (we hailed a taxi from Taipei Main Station). In... More

    Stayed here for 2 nights. First impression: very friendly and helpful staff. They welcomed you by providing a map around the hostel, highlighting some of the tourist attractions. Toilet and room are very clean. Location wise is quite convenient, 3-5 min walk to the metro. It might be a little hard to find the hostels becoz in taiwan it's considered... More

    Eight Elephants is a great hostel in the Guting area. It is easy walking distance to many sites such as Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial, Shida night market and Daan park, as well as being right next to the Guting MRT station. The hostel itself is very clean and has all the amenities a good hostel should, such as wifi, helpful staff,... More

    Worth of finding! Helpful staff, give you map and show you the taipei highlights plus you get a small map of the surroundings. Very handy! There is a small kitchen, fridge and you can also make your laundry here for 50NT! The showers are good functioning with hot watter, the sheets are clean. Perfect.

    I've been here twice. Always the best choice if I have a short-time trip to Taipei. Small, warm and clean. People work here are all nice and sweet.
