wonderful experience to stay the accommodation. People working there are all kind and friendly and gave me some tips and what to see and eat in Taipei at the time of arrival. The room had 6 beds and really clean and tidy as well as toilets and bathroom. The price was 630NTD per night and 500NTD key deposit by cash... More

I stayed at EE when I first arrived in Taipei for the summer to study Chinese, and it must be the best hostel I've ever stayed in. I would count all the staff as friends by the end of my (rather extended) stay, and they helped make what could have been a stressful arrival and acclimation into Taipei for the... More

As good a hostel as you'll find on planet earth. The staff are extraordinary and will do everything in their power to get you familiar with Taiwan and the neighborhood. Great vibe inside. Good book selection. Have a drink and play mahjong with the staff if you have time. The area has everything you could want (bubble tea, soy milk... More

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
