I stayed here for a few months because of how much I loved The Meeting Place. It is by far the best priced for the quality. I was on a budget and no other hostel could beat the price here. The staff is incredible, and speak amazing English and Mandarin so getting around town or calling a taxi was the... More

Special about this place for me was, that here are many long term guests, staying for several months. It's neither good nor bad, it's just something uncommon. The hostel itself is nice, I didn't find much to complain about. Maybe that the restrooms don't have much flair and look a bit dirty (they aren't!), but well, it's a restroom. Staff... More

This was my second stay at The Meeting Place. Though I didn't get to spend much time hanging out the first time, I was drawn to the soft lighting, comprehensive suite of amenities, overall cleanliness level and warm, friendly staff. Having a bit more down time, I got to know most of the regular tenants and staff on this visit.... More

I first heard of TMP through a friend who had stayed here before and I couldn't have been happier at her recommendation! From the minute I arrived I was made to feel welcome by the awesome staff and was introduced to the other guests who were in the huge, but comfortable, common room which comes with a projector, x box,...

Had an absolute blast there! Great staff, facilities are more than adequate for a backpacker with free wifi, a huge living room and even a cat, making the perfect place to just chillax for cheap. Also close to many well known spots in Taipei (Taipei 101, Raohe night market, Wufenpu clothes market, Taipei Exhibition center etc). Excellent public transportation actually... More

Stayed at TMP for 5 nights but wanted to stay longer! I arrived late at night with no reservation, no money, blocked atm cards and a 1260nt taxi to pay for!!! The staff booked me in, paid for the taxi and another guest lent me money until I sorted my bank out! Communal rooms are awesome big large projector on... More

This was my first of two hostels that we stayed in Taiwan. We left this one to go to Taipei Hostel because it was 50 cheaper per dorm bed. Both have good and "bad". Since I didn't book online at Taipei Hostel I will review it here as well. 1st good at Meeting Place- great hostel vibe. Lots of cool... More

The hostel is a nice place to stay for a couple of nights. There are restaurants and convenience stores around, one of the night markets is 15 min. walking. There is a kitchen where you can cook and meet other people. The lobby is good to watch a movie or relax in one of the couches. Susana, one of the... More

It's alright because it's cheap, but there is no atmosphere in there and the dorms are turned into a real mess by long term guess. The bathrooms are clean but always, always stinky. Good wifi. But the staff barely answer the phone, even during working hours when you can't fin the place...

The hostel is not properly taken care of by the owner. The 10 people mixed room is really too dense, packed so please get other rooms. The bathroom for guys smells especially bad and the shower rooms you can see silicion falling apart. The kitchen smells terrible as well, but the nice thing is that you can always meet people,...
