Stayed here for a few nights and overall had a good stay. Things are very non traditional right now due to the COVID-19 virus but the full time staff was polite and helpful. They took a lot of steps to help guests stay with peace of mind. Dorms are basic but do have working AC which is great because the hostel is hot AF so the rooms are a nice break in some cool air. The laundry available is good too, with line drying or a dryer. The rooftop is nice but cluttered with a variety of stuff, but the koi pond is a nice touch. Bathrooms are basic but the water pressure is nice a good number of showers and toilets. The dorm beds are truly some of the worst I’ve slept on. Anywhere in the world. They are as hard as a rock and like you’re sleeping on the ground. Staff tried to help soften it but did not much, but appreciated the effort. I could only stay 3-4 nights because of my back. It’s not a comfortable sleep. And no privacy curtains and lockers don’t lock too. Breakfast is toast with spreads and coffee, it’s fine and a PX Mart is close by to pick up supplies. Hostel was cleaned regularly but the quality of the clean varied. Some of it was fine but a lot of it was very poorly, sloppily done, especially in the bathroom. From observing the working for accommodation staff from outside of Taiwan, I’m guessing that’s where it came from. For the cost and location, the hostel is a real value. I would try staying there again when COVID passes because it was a very non traditional time when I was there. But the beds are a big issue for me.

I don't recognise D'well hostel in the featured review by Mike L in Dec 19. I found this hostel well set up and well run. Those of us in cattle class (dormitory) get our breakfast at the hostel breakfast bar. It's nothing special - white bread toast with spreads and tea or coffee. The jam is awful: so little fruit that it is homeopathic grade. But the coffee is real coffee, it's freshly made, and it's free. As for Louisa Coffee I can't comment on their food or this particular cafe but I have found the Louisa coffee consistently good, a cut above Starbucks and 85C. The hostel itself is modern and its facilities very good. The mattresses are thin and the bunks have no privacy curtains, otherwise fine. There are coin operated washing machines and a covered roof area for drying laundry but no basin for hand washing small items. The staff are competent and helpful. Dreary muzak plays all day in the reception/common area which is a good place to meet people and to relax. A rooftop garden provides another pleasant place to relax. Half a dozen koi swim in a tiled pool - very pretty, but oh, what a sterile environment for the poor fish.

1st. Do not accept food from LOUISA CAFE - The so called included breakfast in the ensuite room package consist of a voucher for this disgusting little cafe around the corner. The minced beef in the elcheapo toasted sandwich was poisoned & I have an extremely strong stomach am well travelled and super experienced - as soon as I took a bite I knew something could be up & sure enough. Yuk this is foul. LOUISA CAFE is staffed with a group of young Chinese kids with a chip on there shoulder. Unfriendly & incompetent. The health department should shut it down. The hostel use this incorret premises picture in there online marketing. The room was OK, but the set up was unsatisfactory, no towels in the rooms rather some big paper towel in a plastic bag. I suppose this just get thrown away. My opinion is this is everything a good operator should not be.
