We arrived with a note on the front door with our names and a nice little message. and our keys were on the office door. The staff... More

Was only going to stay for 2 nights but stayed for a whole week instead. Amazing staff (lily and Tina!! <3), good vibe, and close-but-not-uncomfortable-quarters to mingle and meet travelers. Average facilities which could be better though, I'm always bummed when there is small and a bit old-looking showers like there are here. Beds are comfortable and it's a great... More

This Hostel is just great! The dorm room we stayed in was spacious and the beds pretty comfortable. The common area is a really nice place to relax on the couches and to meet other travellers. The Tonghua night market where you can indulge in awesome Taiwanese cuisine is just around the corner and also the Taipei 101 where you... More

The hostel was very clean and had a great atmosphere. The staff were as helpful as I have ever seen in a hostel; in particular Tina and Eason were happy to help us with everything (from directions to personal development). They taught us a number of mandarin phrases that helped us throughout Taiwan. 감사합니다.

I absolutely fell in love with this hostel. JV's has a lovely common room where its easy to meet new travellers, as well as having a lot of helpful brochures, maps and sight seeing information. There is a washing machine, kitchen and water refilling station which is also super convenient. The location was also really great, right next to a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
What separates us from the rest is the good feeling that you get from staying with us. Besides getting to know our genuinely friendly and helpful staff, you will form lifelong friendships with the other guests that you meet from around the world and whom you might just end up going sightseeing and partying with during your stay here. Many of our past guests stay in touch with us and each other long after they have left Taipei and many choose to stay at JV’s again. ... more   less
