Place was well located, walking to mrt ximen station, and ximen shopping district is relatively fast (abt 7mins walk). Room is relatively spacious. The one we booked was a 2 storey apartment for 3 pax. Basic equipments are around. The overall of the unit is rather old. Probably some furnishing has to be done. Abit dusty too.

I got to stay in this hostel when I visited Taipei Feb of 2012. The best thing about it is its location, walking distance from Taipei Main Station which is a good thing cause buses from the airport stop there. It can be challenging to find at first cause its in one of the inner alleys but the direction the... More

This hostel is conveniently located near the Taipei Main Station which makes travelling to other provinces from Taipei hassle free. We stayed for several nights in this hostel but traveled to other provinces in between. We left our luggage in the hostel's luggage room during our absence and everything was intact upon our return. The rooms and shared toilets were... More

The hostel is neat and tidy with superb location. Guests have to share common toilet and shower room but they are clean and in good condition. Free and fast wifi assess. Reasonable price as a hostel Cons: only 2 toilets on each floor, have to queue up in the morning

The hostel is located near Ximen MRT which is a very good location near the Ximendi night-market and lots of restaurants and bars. The staff is very nice. We booked a room for 4 and get a room in the building next door to the hostel. The room was big and clean with everything you need. The price was reasonable... More

I had a great stay. I arrived fairly late but the desk person on duty was attentive and friendly. He helped me carry my bags to my room and gave me a small map and transportation advice for my flight the next day. Everything was clean and quiet. WiFi worked great. The air conditioning in my room was a godsend,... More
