“Nice Room with shared bath, Friendly Staff, Excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

We stayed there for 3 nights, The room is clean, modern and functional. The bed is comfortable. The bathroom is shared but we like it ! we have been worry about this but No problem in actual stay. Good Wifi free in our room. The staff is friendly and helpful. Provided me a free skype call to contact another next stop hotel. We used to stay in their domitory also but we feel its very low privacy and I feel not comfortable (For myself). The location is excellent, closed to main street. MRT Main station and High speed train station just few steps from the guesthouse. We have a good stay here and we will come back again.

Positive:
1. Location
It is so close to the airport bus stop! When I alighted from the bus, I could see the tall Cosmos Hotel in the skyline and I walked in that direction easily to look for Cosmos commercial building (where Nihao is located). On my way to the airport, I took the airport bus at the Taipei Bus Terminal and the walk from Nihao to the terminal took me less than 5 minutes. There are so many restaurants at the Taipei Railway station eg Hanli (original Taiwanese bubble tea brewer) and La Mian are highly recommended.

Negative:
1. Whilst I was staying at Nihao, the other occupants in the 8 female dormitory were terribly inconsiderate. The problem is they do not understand the etiquette of staying with other people in the same room e.g. blowing hair at midnight, turning on the room's general light till 1am (while all other occupants were asleep), chit chatting on the phone for half an hour at near-midnight, and keeping the phone SMS mode to an annoying signal that beeped every other minute.
2. There were rubbish under the bunk beds.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, a 8-beds female dormitory may be unsuitable for you.

We are a group of 4 and stayed in a family room on 4th floor, their check in desk and common room is on 11/F.
The apartment is just next to the exit M3 of TAIPEI Station, the location is excellent. There is a 7-11 just a few blocks away. Food and drink can be found inside TPE station. The room is just enough for 4 persons, it is clean, comfortable but no fridge inside the room. The only problem we found was the broken showerhead in the bathroom, the water ran out from the conjunction of the showerhead and the pipe. For budget traveler, we have no complaint at all. It is highly recommended.

We stayed in the Family Room for 3 days.

Pros :
a) Excellent location. 2 min. walk to Taipei Main Railway Station. Metro entrance & convenience store is almost outside hotel building. No problem when it rains. Lots of shops nearby.
b) Modern and clean rooms.
c) Reception spoke excellent English & free PC for Internet access.
d) Area around hotel building is lively and safe.
e) Excellent value for money.

Con :
a) The rooms are in a commercial building, not a proper hotel. They used the various lots in the commercial building and converted it into hotel rooms. Other lots are offices. As such, it is deserted at night.
b) The bathroom towels were not changed daily. We had to exchange new towels at the reception. I guess it was "self service".

Will definitely stay there again.

It has the best access to MRT exit by about 50 meters in the middle of the city area, post office, banks, eatery, underground mall, other kinds of transportation; bus station and a railway station. Very practical if you want to enjoy Taipei and hop onto a train or a bus out of the city.

Staff are super friendly and speak very good English. Accommodations are new and clean. Living room area is very cosy, you can actually enjoy hanging out in there. Spacious bed that doesn't make quirky noise with a nice fluffy blanket. What more do you need?

Easy access from the hotel, near the Taipei Main Station MRT, Bus Terminal and other train services to outskirt. We stayed in the Family room (5 person) and dormitory for lady (4 person). Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Incase you are going to stay here next time, just look for 天成饭店 signboard from the Taipei Main Station, the entrance exactly next to the hotel to a corporate office block is where this hostel located.

About 5 mins walk from the hotel, you can find a place where you can store all your luggages at TWD17 (about MYR1.70) per luggage per day. We stored our luggage here for 2 days and it cost us only MYR3.40 per luggage. Remember to keep the receipt for collection purpose.

Family room is very suitable for friends and family of 4-5 person, comfortable and more private if you are not use to dormitory style. LCD TV, coffee & tea maker, hair dryer is available for your usage.

The location is extremely convenience! It took me 5 mins walk from Taipei Main Station to Nihao. Awesome nice and friendly staff. They will help you to solve and introduce the place and food you got to go and try in Taipei!

But, this Hostel does not provide any towels and we have to rent it. Overall, it was a pleasant stay.
