I stayed in a very small single room for about five weeks so those staying in the dormitory part of the hostel may have slightly different experiences. This seems to be the most inexpensive hostel in Taipei. It has to be at least 40 years old too. Some of the bathrooms are in need of some repairs but they were... More

Taipei Hostel is not located on a main street, which can make it harder to find initially. The location does help to keep the street noise to a minimum. Private rooms here with free wifi are a bargain when compared to a hotel room in the same area. If booking a room or space using the shared bathroom, bringing your... More

I stayed here in January 2014. Initially it was VERY hard to find. If you take the airport bus to the Sheraton it's easy enough, but it's confusing because the hostel is in multiple buildings. The reception isn't on the ground floor, so it just seemed to be an apartment building once we went inside. It wasn't very clear where... More

We stayed in a double room with ensuite bathroom in November 2013. These are my comments: Pros: 1) Good Location: Just a 5-minute walk to Shandao Temple MRT Station, which is one station from Taipei Main Station. 2) Cheap 3) Staff was responsive during booking Cons: 1) Poor Cleanliness: The room was not clean. The bed sheet and sofa were... More

My girlfriend and I booked a double room for three nights, including New Years Eve, 7 weeks before our stay. Apparently that was too early, so we were asked to confirm within 4 weeks of arriving. When I emailed our confirmation more than 3 weeks before our stay, the reply was that the room was no longer available! They gave... More

Location pro: near to Shandao Temple MRT, one to two minute walk. Location cons: located in a quiet corner which is quite hard to find. The small alley is dark at night. A bit scary and dangerous for girls. Room pro: Considered as cheap in Taipei, we chose the private room with a private bathroom. WIfi is good in the... More

The hostel is a short walk to the Shendao Temple MRT, which is one stop away from the main station. A bus to and from the airport stops at the Sheraton hotel, which is also just a few steps from the place. I paid 300 NTD for a night at the mixed dorm, which felt like a private room because... More

Showed me a family room the price was three times more expensive than the single room. Afterwards I said I would leave than rather to take the family room, she showed... More
