First time in Taiwan which is famous for its 民宿(B&B). We got an apartment to ourselves, 2 minutes away from the HQ (which is more of a share house). This place was certainly comfortable, clean and cozy. Its literally next to shilin night market and the subway station. The staff who welcomed us was friendly and helped us to the... More

Really enjoyed our stay here! Clean, very comfortable beds, free breakfast, helpful staff, very close to subway. Big shared bathrooms with clean showers. Close to the biggest night market in Taiwan with tons of great shopping and food. Our room was not loud at night though.

I initially booked this hostel for 3 weeks to explore the city and visit some friends in town. However, I caught on a really bad allergy on my second day at Fun Taipei Hostel and I had to leave the country as soon as possible to get my skin treated. They had a 'no-refund' policy which was stated in their... More

Nice room, comfy bed, bring your own towels because the one provided is very small. People were nice and helpful, they organised a day tour for us with Lily (Taxidriver) to Yeliu geopark, Jioufen, Pingsi etc. excellent value for... More

This hostel is very convenient - just 5 mins walk to Jiantan station and bus stop, and a few mins walk to Shilin night market, which doesn't close till late so you won't have to worry about not finding food at night. The vibe in the hostel is nice and their staff are very friendly and willing to help. The... More

Wonderful hostel! Prime location with easy access to the night market and the subway. Less than a one minute walk from the red subway line which gets you to Taipei Main Station in under 10 minutes. The hostel was clean, organized, and cozy. Rooms were on the small slide but all the other features and benefits made up for it.... More

I am doing this review at 3.17am as the noise of people yelling, talking and clapping hands is still going on. They do have rules to keep noise to a minimum at 12 but it is clearly not enforced. When you make a booking, instructions on how to find the place are emailed to you. But when you turn up... More
