Eight Elephants is hands-down the best hostel I've stayed at in recent years. The staff was friendly and accommodating and the atmosphere was relaxed. They are also very clean, with a big emphasis on recycling. I would definitely stay here again!

After leaving my hostel booking over the NYE period to the last minute, I had to book a dorm for myself and two mates at Eight Elephants. The reviews were great and using email to book was a snap - responsive, great English, and the PDF they send you on how to get there was beyond helpful. Still, I was... More

The Eight Elephants Hostel close to the MRT-station Guting for me turned out to be an amazing choice! Me and my mate stayed at the 6bed-dorm. When we arrived the staff gave us lots of information about what to do during our stay in Taipei. It was a good atmosphere of helping and living together, even if it was just... More

Eight elephants is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. It's got a great atmosphere and the staff are really helpful and friendly. It's also in a great location for exploring Taipei (MRT, restaurants etc. all close by). I would highly recommend this place to anyone, whether they are travelling through or moving to Taipei!

Having traveled for the better part of the last three years, I've spent time living in places that span the spectrum of hostels. Eight Elephants ranks in the top tier of every aspect I look for in a hostel: good location, comfortable common area, a great social gathering spot and a staff that you'll be sad to say goodbye to...

Excellent location, great facilities (very clean!) and full of the best people (staff and guests). Their website provides really clear instructions on getting from the airport and there are always staff around to help you with anything you need once you're there. The perfect welcome to Taipei.

It was my second time staying with Eight Elephants and was equally enjoyable. The hostel is in a great location and friendly, helpful staff. Would rank among the best hostels I've stayed at and recommend to anyone staying-in or traveling through Taipei.
