I had seen better places for this amount of money in more expensive countries. High humidity, especially in shower. No kitchen equipment. Very noisy during the nights (few people are chatting and doing their business just next to a window of the room. Bring earplugs! Location is pretty good (not so far from MRT). For me it was not hard... More

Luckily I didn't read the other reviews before booking. I loved this place, and Cindy and Anita were incredibly nice. Taipei is a fairly expensive city (for Asia) so if I take this into account, it was a great deal. PROS: Great location. Close to the action but on a quiet side lane. Clever storage in the tiny rooms. Clean.... More

Travelled to Taipei in the group of 10, we thought we could stay in this place because in the picture it look quite decent for a 10pax hence we booked the place. Upon reaching' the taxi driver couldn't find this place due to the location is quite deep inside with small road and small alley night time can be quite... More

I felt obligated to write a review after visiting this place as i see the need to share my dreadful experience. Prior to booking this place, we contacted and were told by the owner that we will be allowed to check in at 12pm on that day if we were to book with them for our 5 nights stay. Glad... More

So we booked this place for our first night in Taipei. Since we'd just arrived, we had no mobile phones or net access but we assumed that we could just arrive and check in as it was after check in time. We got a cab to drop us off and the place was deserted. There was a sign with a... More

Since I use reviews a lot to make my own travel decisions, I felt an obligation to share my terrible experience at the Zebra. I traveled to Taipei with a group of 6 this past winter. Although the location of the hostel is great (about a 10 minute walk to the Ximen train station), I cannot think of another positive... More

Luckily, it was just a one night stay. Upon arrival, I was shocked to be greeted by a cluttered "reception" area. And got informed by the owner, Cindy, that the room is not ready for us. She went ahead to take out the fresh bedsheets and start to spread the bed right before our eyes. To speed things up a... More

We stayed 4 nights at zebra, and we didn't quite enjoy the experience. Personally, i made it a point to stay in the rooms as much as possible and fully utilize the hostel's proximity to ximending. There wasn't enough toilets to accommodate the number of people staying there. Expect cold showers every morning, the heater takes forever to start up,... More

Upon our arrival, the owner, Cindy, was not available until we called her. For a prompt booking, she was obviously not as enthusiastic to welcome us on time. Location was also a huge problem. On the map it looks accessible to XimenDing But if you take the cab in, even the most learned cab driver has no clue where this... More

Don't stay here unless you have a cell phone to contact owner about arrival times, even though website says email is acceptable. We sent the owner 5 emails asking about arrival times and she never responded. When we arrived at the airport we called from a pay phone (which was an ordeal in itself since we didn't have small change... More
