“Lienert De Muylder”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

I spend my lasty days in Taiwan in FFH and had a warm welcome.
Good advice to visit citycenter and other parts of town.
Atmosphere ini the building is friendly and all visitors respect the rules of the house: clean hostel and a good sleep as a result!
location is super!

The Location is great, 5mins away from the train station and MRT. The hostel overall is really neat and tidy, the beds are comfortable and are all equipped with a locker and reading light which is really convenient.
But most of all, i would like to say a big thank you to all the awesome Staff working there… I must say it's definitely the best hostel i've been to so far!! i would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable accommodation when travelling to Taipei!

Ok, no matter it is for the solo traveller, groups, or family, as long as you are on tight budget, this is the place to choose for sure.

Location: only cross street distance from Q square 京站時尚廣場, everything seems stone through, Metro, Bus Terminal, Fast Train, Food Stall, Book Shop, Museum of Modern Arts, etc. could not describe more as it is just so convenient.

Staff: Friendly, Well Organised, Warm Heart. (Don't feed them with food and drinks :) )

Sleeping: Quiet, Peaceful

Secure: Indeed, you need to have e-key to enter into the main entrance and residential area. They also have female only floor for secure consideration.

Atmosphere: Depends the time you stay there as this is really a place for international gatherings, Fun, Happy, Cozy, Cool,

Price: For this location? It is very reasonable lah!

Cleaness: Please do take off your shoes before step into the hostel. They do clean the whole area regularly. (Don't make it mass and be a guest could respect the hard working staff)

So many lovely faces I could not forget in my entire life, Ruby, Jasper, many more lovely guys.

We stayed in Flip Flop hostel 6 bed dorm for one night before heading to Taichung. It's a little bit small for 6 people but very comfortable. It is ok for me because all I want is to have a comfortable bed to sleep and not having a party in my room. The location of the Flip Flop hostel is great, where it is very near to 2 different train station with only few minutes walk, the staff is very friendly and helpful, got a warm welcomed by the staff at there and even draw a map for us to show the direction to the nearest night market!! Wireless, hot water, public computer.. whatever basic facilities you could named it, you could find it there.. It is clean and nicely decorated. I like the wall decoration very much. It is one of my favourite hostel in Taipei. Too bad we only stayed at Flip Flop Hostel for only 1 night. But it is really a great hostel and I would like to stay at there again if I am coming to Taipei again!!

I booked a room for two when I visited Taiwan in July 2012 for about a week. Stayed at FFH for the 1st night before traveling to Chiayi. It is indeed located very close to Taipei Main Train Station. So location wise, it's pretty good. But because I brought two large suitcases, I felt that the room was quite small for me to reorganize my belongings. Staff are friendly and helpful.
