I feel old and snobbish writing this review, but I guess my time to stay in hostels has come and gone with the years. For some reason when I saw this so highly ranked on tripadvisor under hotels (did I misread something?) I assumed it would rise above the standard hostel and be comparable to a hotel. Believe me it... More

I lived there for almost two weeks, which has been a great time and an amazing experience, as well as a good place for meeting people from all over the world. Actually I don't know what to start with. Maybe, first of all, the fact that it is highly convenient, a couple of minutes walking from amazing food in the... More

The hostel is not located in the direct center of Taipei but the underground is in 5min walk... The only bad point of this Hostel which is a big flat is that the bathrooms are being used by at least a dozen of people (could have been more) and is quickly no more clean.... Otherwise staff is kind and helpful... More

This is one of the friendliest hostel that I've stayed in Taipei. The receptionists were very friendly and provided me with great information on local foods, night markets, attractions, etc in the area. This hostel is also within a short distance from the MRT Guting Station. Make sure you take exit 3 from the Guting station, walk straight and make... More

This was a great hostel. Close to transportation, one of the famous night markets, and had a nice, family/friendly atmosphere. I was here on my own but met many nice people who I often ended up going out with for meals or sightseeing. The rooms were okay, a bit small but comfortable and clean. The only complaint I have about... More

It was my first time staying in a big city on my own for 3 days. I've been to quite a few countries, but never alone, so staying here was really comforting and safe, especially since I didn't know Taipei at all. And the only Mandarin I know is 'What', 'I don't know', and 'I don't understand.' I chose this... More

I stayed here for 2 weeks and is one of the better hostels I have stayed in. Excellent location near Shida night market, NTNU and 5 min walk to two MRT's. The manager, Nikita, is very accommodating and helpful. I stayed in a 6 bed female dorm, but the most people in the room during my stay was 4. This... More
