Stayed here with my boyfriend twice in Oct/Nov 2014. Great stay friendly and welcoming staff. The staff were very helpful and provided us with a map when we arrived and pointed out great places to eat and a few places to visit. Managed to find our way round pretty easy on the metro. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Shared... More

Had a lovely stay here with my boyfriend, friendly and welcoming staff. We were given a map on arrival and the staff told us some good places to eat nearby. Great location, found it very easy to get around on foot and using the fantastic public transport. Clean rooms. Nice relaxing atmosphere. Shared bathrooms were kept clean.

I stayed in the single room at dreaming dragon. It's very quiet and allowed me to relax after long days of traveling around. The staff here are excellent in every regard and very friendly. I stayed at 4 different hostels in Taiwan and Eight Elephants/ Dreaming Dragon is my favorite.

Was in Eight Elephants hostel for 5 days and really enjoyed my stay there. While the hostel itself its not that big, the staff more than compensates this fact with such niceness like no other. When you come to this hostel for the first time, you enter as a tourist, then you stay as a guest and finally when you... More

My husband and I stayed for one night. We booked a double bed room. It took us a while to find the hostel, but it's located in one of the most vibrant areas in Taipei. Staff members were super friendly and the hostel is very clean. I did not expect some stuff they provided, such as towels and small treats.Overall,... More

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. If you’re there... More

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.
