Stayed at Eight Elephants for 4 Nights from 14-18 Sep and its a really great place to stay. The staff are fantastic and really friendly, the dorms and bathrooms are clean and its just a few minutes away from a metro station which makes it great base for sightseeing, there is a 7 eleven right near the hostel and its...

Before returning to my country, a friend of mine had told me about that place. He had forgotten to tell me "It is a real paradise" haha I decided to stay over there for three days and two nights, and I admit it, "I loved it!" Managers gave me a warm welcome, the place is really clean and has everything... More

My girlfriend ans I spent just under two weeks at EE & DD and had a fantastic time. The staff is extremely helpful and outgoing. We were introduced to many local restaurants and even advised what to order in Chinese. Also, the vibe in the hostel is great. Many of the visitors and staff typically hang out together downstairs and... More

Just returned from staying at Eight Elephants for a long weekend. This was my first time in Taipei, which turns out to be (a) not so simple to navigate without being Mandarin speaking and (b) much easier to navigate with the friendly - and proactive - guidance of the Eight Elephants' staff. For example, my coach bus back to the... More

Now that I finally decided to write TA reviews, I can't leave out my favorite hostel of all time! Stayed at EE/DD during my entire 3-month-stay while studying Chinese in Taipei back in summer 2013 and never regretted it. Very friendly, hard-working & helpful staff, wonderful atmosphere, always clean, fast wifi and great location almost next to Guting MRT station.... More

First and foremost I think it's the staff that make the place, they're all super friendly, hard working and really helpful. The environment they have managed to cultivate there is really warm, and friendly. They really know to take care of the guests, introduce everyone, and make EE feel like more of a home than a hostel. The place is... More

The Eight Elephants/Dreaming dragon is the perfect first stop for anyone coming to Taipei. It is located in a great area, and close to the MRT so that you can explore the city. The place is both clean and safe. What really makes it however, is the incredible nice service. The employees will help you find the tourist attractions, but... More

Of all the hostels I have stayed at, this was the best. The staff cultivated a friendly, supportive and clean community environment. It is also in a great location--really helpful in orienting newcomers to Taipei. The spaces were well managed and the prices were more than fair. I would highly recommend this hostel whether you are a student or tourist.

I stayed here for two nights and would definitely recommend it. The common area is really cozy and welcoming and the staff is both helpful and friendly. The air conditioning downstairs (dormitory and sitting room) is great but upstairs (showers and kitchen) lacks air conditioning, which was uncomfortable in mid-august. The hostel is in a prime location, about 2 mins... More
