I stayed there for a night before meeting up with friends. Overall, its ok. However, the staff need to pay more attention to detail. I booked a single bedroom. However, the room is very small and can only fit a bed and a table. The bed is less than 180cm because I cannot fit myself in since I'm 180cm tall.... More

I said I'd 5 star the 8 elephants; I am a man of my word. Stayed at this place back in 2013 when Sara was the boss, now I am sitting here in 2015 next to Ben. Despite me forgetting to book a reservation through email, EE was quick to accommodate me as I was knocking on the door and... More

The hostel was great is really make me feel like I was at home. It is really hard to find because it is located in a back alley. The skilled staff knew our names and gave us little presents as we were there during Christmas. They were really trying to get us involved and invited us to parties. We stayed... More

I'm not quite sure what it is about me that I tend to like the lower end hostels and hotels. I feel like this is super value at about 30 usd per night. It's a little more for the weekend and a little less for the weekdays. I had a single twin room with bathroom facilities down the hall. There's... More

We really enjoyed our stay at 8 elephants. It was a very clean and accommodating hostel. While a little hard to find the first time, its in a great location once you know where it is. We had a private room with three people. It came with our own bathroom and AC unit. For the price, it was definitely worth... More

Stayed here with my boyfriend twice in Oct/Nov 2014. Great stay friendly and welcoming staff. The staff were very helpful and provided us with a map when we arrived and pointed out great places to eat and a few places to visit. Managed to find our way round pretty easy on the metro. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Shared... More

Had a lovely stay here with my boyfriend, friendly and welcoming staff. We were given a map on arrival and the staff told us some good places to eat nearby. Great location, found it very easy to get around on foot and using the fantastic public transport. Clean rooms. Nice relaxing atmosphere. Shared bathrooms were kept clean.

I stayed in the single room at dreaming dragon. It's very quiet and allowed me to relax after long days of traveling around. The staff here are excellent in every regard and very friendly. I stayed at 4 different hostels in Taiwan and Eight Elephants/ Dreaming Dragon is my favorite.

Was in Eight Elephants hostel for 5 days and really enjoyed my stay there. While the hostel itself its not that big, the staff more than compensates this fact with such niceness like no other. When you come to this hostel for the first time, you enter as a tourist, then you stay as a guest and finally when you... More
