Renovated in May 2017. Homey Hostel Taipei is located less than a 10 minute walk to the center of Taipei's mass transport network, Taipei Main Station. Guests can easily take the MRT for a day trip to the waterfront town of Danshui/Tamsui or visit the famous Xin Beitou sulfur hot springs. Those looking for something closer to Homey can walk just 10 minutes to visit the historical Ning Xia Night Market, join the tour to scenic Elephant Mountain, or walk 5 minutes to the Museum of Contemporary Art. Social travelers can often find new friends in the common area and participate one of our many weekly events like our food tour, dance class, or family dinner. A typical morning starts with our guests sitting in the large common area chatting over a cup of coffee. The friendly atmosphere makes Homey an easy place to make friends with visitors from all over the world. You can enjoy warm toast and fresh fruit prepared by our staff. There's also plenty of natural light from the full wall-to-wall glass windows. Your security is our priority. Every guest has their own key card and locker. There is a security guard on duty 24hrs a day on ground floor, as well as security monitors in the common area. We highly value the importance of a clean facility, therefore every bed is sanitized before a new guest checks in. Every bed sheet is disinfected and ironed in the laundry house before delivered to the facility. Common areas are cleaned multiple times throughout the day, and we also have a full time house keeper on staff. If you meet her, kindly give her an encouragement for her hard work. We always want to make sure that our guests feel comfortable, so please make sure to let us know if we can do anything to make your stay more enjoyable! Homey meets the standard of the strict fire regulations of Taiwan. Every room door and wall is fire resistant. There is a smoke alarm, fire escape instructions and emergency announcement systems set up in each room. Furthermore, two escape stairs, fire hose and escape slings are equipped on every floor. We do everything to ensure your safety. 《2015 TRIPADVISTOR CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE》 《2014 BOOKING AWARD OF EXCELLENCE》 《HOSTELLING INTERNATIONAL MEMBER, YHA》

Hostel location is good for access to Taipei main train and bus stations max 5 min walk. Rooms clean, beds long enough for tall people '1,90m' just more shelving will be better at bed area plus close to wall sockets. Breakfast nice as I like the congee with coconut band peanut. Also like shower with window. Rooms could get a bit stuffy without Air Con as no window 'in the one I slept' but overall nice hostel with cool common area. Defo recommend.

Loved my stay here! The staff were super friendly and helpful. The facilities were modern, clean, and safe. Each bed has a locker with a built-in combination lock that can accommodate a large rucksack or small suitcase and has two hangers for clothes/shower towel.

I really like this hostel. It’s very convenience for go to every place in Taiwan because it’s near Taipei Main Station. There are many restaurants around accommodation. The room and toilet are so clean and They provide breakfast for their guests. However, I think it’s a little bit difficult to find the hostel because the sign too small. Although the room is so clean but I feel itchy because it has a lot of dust in the room and sofa at the reception.

Bed room is clean and comfortable. Staff are friendly. It would be better to separate the female and male on the shower and washrooms. Observed the boy was eating and lying near the receptionist area and the place not looked tidy and clean

homey is the best. Very safe, very clean, good kitchen and common area. Great staff, great environment to either meet people or introvert by yourself. Five minutes from taipei main station, so there’s quick access by metro to anywhere in the city. Great street food nearby. Highly recommend!!!

I had some issues with this hostel. They like to book big groups of mainland visitors or long term visitors. They have some kind of discount for long term stay. This makes the hostel crowded and not social. One morning I walked in the lounge to find three guests sleeping in the rafters in the common area. Very strange. If you're a backpacker, you might feel out of place here since there didn't seem to be many solo travelers at all. There is free breakfast of congee or white bread. No fruit or protein, kinda disappointing. The kitchen is small for the number of people using it. The lounge was also fairly crowded on weekends. I enjoyed the city view from the lounge, the big glass windows are nice. The rooms were clean but a big issue is that the lockers are so small that your luggage surely won't fit. I ended up locking my backpack to my bed post and leaving it out. The lockers are only big enough for a mid size backpack and shoes. Wifi was strong everywhere in hostel. I used the laundry on site which was convenient and inexpensive. I stayed at Star hostel for a few nights as well. Homey and Star hostel are a block from each other. I found Star to be better in basically every possible way, so consider that when deciding.
