I have just finished 4days/3nights trip with my kid in Taipei. I have booked this hotel after browsing through different reviews & most comments are quite genuine. With this price that I paid for hostel located in Xinminding, I can't asked for more. Like what others wrote on this forum, location is difficult to find for first time and I need to ask one person when I used exit no. 6 at Xinmin station. It takes 5-10mins walk to hotel, provided you have seen the photo that someone took & put on this forum, it helps you easier to find the entrace of the hotel lobby. The hotel was located on an old building, however with the hotel key holders can access to hotel floors. If you don't feel safe to go with those local people, you can always wait for another lift to go up. Breakfast items were mainly local, you can slipped this one as you can save room for better food at Xinminding. Please ask for room on 10/F as people said it was newly renovated. Room size was big & clean, however, not enough place for clothes as no wardrobe. It's ok for us as we used to leave things in suitcase. If you are lucky, they may be able to give you room with bathtub. One main drawback like most hostels, sound proof is bad as you may easily heard the neighbourhood if they wake up early or come back late. If you are buget traveller looking for inexpensive but convenience location & fairly new hostels, this may be a nice place to stay.
