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

A friend and I went to Taipei for a couple of days and decided to book the Zebra Apartments. Likes: The hostel is within walking distance of Ximending, which is a really great place for shopping, entertainment, etc. I really loved the location and it was easy to get to. Also, I thought the actual rooms were cute and clean.... More
