Staff are really nice, always there to help us! They helped us with train tickets etc.. The hostel is clean and near to Taipei 101 and a street market. We met a lot of travelers from around the world. We had a great time!! Thanks to Rice and other staff!!!

So far one of the best hostels I've stayed in. Great location: walking distance to night life area near 101. Staff are really hospitable and helpful as well. The only one cons I could think of is little bit lack of privacy in a shower room.

The hostel here has good location, cool staff, all kinds of different guests, easy to use facilities. What more could you ask for? I only stayed on a weekday but from what I heard weekends are fun here. You'll find some people to go party with if that's your thing.

It is a hostel managed with high quality. The staff is nice. The room is not big, but sufficient and clean for a solo stay. Generally the hostel is clean and with warm atmosphere. We are required to take off the shoes at the entrance and we watch TV together in the common room. Previously I saw some poor comment... More

Looking for a budget accommodation in Taipei, my sister and I finally decided on JV's Hostel. Having stayed there in a private room in the studio apartment, I can say with confidence that some of the worset reviews of this hostel are perhaps over-exaggerated. It must be noted that this is the first time my sister and I are travelling,... More

I stayed for a night in a 4 person private room, and it was a pretty comfortable room, though the curtains could be thicker to block the sunlight streaming into the room in the morning. The location is near to Elephant Hill, where you can get an amazing view of Taipei 101 and the surrounding buildings. The hostel is also... More

One of the best hostels I stayed in Asia so far. Even thou I checked in very late they left me the code for the entrance door and I was able to take a hot shower after 20h or journey :) It's very well organized: leaflets, information for the guest, signs everywhere... The place is located vis-a-vis the night market,... More

I stayed in jv for only two nights, in the girls dorm. The room and the shower room is super clean. The staff are nice and helpful. They gave me a lot of trip advice! I would like to back to this hostel again if i go Taipei next time!

The stay was most pleasant by the friendly staffs at the hostel. Rice and her other colleagues made me feel well at home. The place had excellent decors of past travellers and it just feels perfect to hang around waiting for your next trip out. The rooms were pleasant to stay in and the facilities , etc toilets and common... More

I stay at this place from time to time during my visits to Taiwan mostly because of the atmosphere at this place - everyone is very helpful, they even gave me a locker, so I can keep my stuff inside (toothbrush, towel, laptop charger etc...) and don't have to take it every time form HK. No elevator - get ready... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
What separates us from the rest is the good feeling that you get from staying with us. Besides getting to know our genuinely friendly and helpful staff, you will form lifelong friendships with the other guests that you meet from around the world and whom you might just end up going sightseeing and partying with during your stay here. Many of our past guests stay in touch with us and each other long after they have left Taipei and many choose to stay at JV’s again. ... more   less
