THE STAFF IS AMAZING. They are really kind, helpful and eager to help you. They make a quite a team of nice people. Disliked: Compared to other hostels around the world I have stayed at, formosa 101 has the best value for money.

Overall, It was a nice hostel. the staffs were so friendly and helpful. the only things I dissatisfied is noise. there is a lounge on the 4th floor and people keep talking after midnight, also, you can hear street noise. however other things are great. if you are backpacks this hostel would be the best.

At first, it was hard to find this hostel but once we got to know where it is it was such a good place to stay because there was a night market beside the hostel and we could find the bus and metro very quickly and conveniently. I had a good time with my friend. Thank you for your kindness.

I and my boyfriend booked the room in JV's hotel for three nights. We were arranged to stay at the first floor. The room was ok. however, a bit smelly and humid. The bathroom was clean and they offered washing machine in the bathroom that was very nice but no place to hang up the cloth to dry. One positive... More

I loved staying a JV's hostel! The only staff member I met was Rice, but she was incredibly helpful and sweet! She took guests out to popular night markets, helped us book train tickets, and showed us around town. The whole place was very clean, and very nice! We did have a very hard time finding this place, but this... More

I have spent 5 nights there, everything was cool, many showers in the building, located just next to a night market. The crew was cool, helping me to send postcards and to find the direct bus to the airport ! Cheers from France, Hugo

The atmosphere there is nice and you can meet people from different countries easily. The staff led us to a beach today and there was lots of fun. I love JV's hostel. What's more is that, I forgot to book one more day to live but actually I needed it, the staff just arranged for me and tried their best... More

The location of the hostel is very good, metro station and night market are within walking distance. The staff here is experienced and approachable, especially Rice, serving the guest with all of the passion she had. Perhaps the facilities here are not as new as other younger hostels in taipei, but I believe that the service of JVs hostel is... More

The staff was aamzing, and the hostel is located very close from Taipei 101, so you can walk there or take a cab if there is no more MRT, as it will be fairly cheap. The showers are very clean, the guests respectful, and a cleaning lady cleans the rooms every morning.

Stayed 4 nights in a mix dormitory. Very strategic location all is within 5 to 10 mins walking distance, next to a night market and no problem looking for food. Rooms are clean, comfortable and cheap, nice environment with very fast internet connection. Host Rice is very friendly, she is the encyclopedia of my trip, if you have no plans... More
