I stayed there one night in February, and I was pleasantly surprised by how reasonably priced it is, considering it's also very well-maintained. Pros: - quiet, always clean, huge lockers - stylish "boutique" design - very central: 3 minutes walk from the Zhongsheng MRT & about 15 minutes from Taipei Main Station - staff was attentive, organized & polite -...

We stayed here for three nights and were really pleased with our stay. As many other reviewers have said, the location is great - a short walk from Taipei Main Station. It is also really easy to find as all the buildings are numbered so just follow street until you reach building 132! Ring the buzzer and they will allow... More

Long overdue review. Was in Taipei alone for a week in Dec 2013. I was so glad I booked Star Hostel and not anywhere else. It's the ideal place for any solo traveller who's there to chill but doesn't wanna be left in complete solitude. 👍LOCATION Firstly, the location was central. 5-minute walk away from Taipei MRT, Taipei Railway Station,...

Quite enjoyed by stay at Star Hostel, it has a great location which is about 10 minutes walk from Taipei Main MRT station (red and blue line) and 2-3 minutes walk from Zhongshan MRT Station (red line). Staff were extremely accommodating, friendly, and they can speak English fairly well for us to understand. They're well knowledgeable in the area too... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Star Hostel. Great location (about 5 minutes away from the nearest train station), friendly and accommodating staff (one of them even helped us look for a place to get drinks), and clean rooms. Their room rates include breakfast (toast, fruit, and coffee/tea) as well. Will definitely go back :) TIP: Don't bring heavy luggage,... More

The staff speaks good English and is very helpful. Good knowledge of the city. We just don't like the fact that you have to climb stairs because it is a hassle when you have a lot of luggage. Location of hotel is very good, right outside the bus stop

Stayed in the female dorm for 4 nights - room was well maintained, albeit a little small (i think there is a larger dorm room though). Staffs were friendly and service was good! Excellent location - easily accessible from Zhong Shan & Taipei Subway Stations (both within walking distance); very central. Oh, and I loved the steamed dumplings served in... More

We stayed in a private room (private bathroom) for two nights. The staff was very welcoming and nice! Our room was large for hostel standards, and bathroom was clean and looked new! The best thing about this hostel was the breakfast, this was the only place during our Asia trip where they served whole wheat bread and four types of... More
