They allowed us to cancel 1 night since we made a mistake of booking extra night (inform them in advance, of course!). Arrived in their hostel late but they leave notes to follow to reach the studio. Gave their contact number in case of emergency. We stayed 3 nights in the studio, few minutes away from their shared dormitories. The...

Location is accessible from Xinyi-Anhe station (1 stop away from Taipei 101), however it'd be good if you have Google Maps to navigate your way to the hostel. There is also a night market just outside of the hostel. The rooms are great, amenities are well-equipped for the price you pay.

This is one of the best hostels in Taipei. Fantastic location right on Tonghua Night Market, amazing staff including Tina, Lily, Eric and Phoenix, who are more like friends than staff. Extended my stay cos it was so great.

Taipei is amazing, especially when you stay in this hostel! The location is really good (in the middle of a night market). The rooms are clean and in the commen room is a good atmosphere! The staff is amazingly friendly and willing to help you with everything! They made a program, so I could see as much as possible in...

I stayed here for a week. The location is excellent - a short walk from Taipei 101, medium walk from Elephant Mountain, and right next to Tonghua Night Market. For cheap and delicious eats any time of day, the (night) market area gets it done. JV's is within a trifecta of two bus stops and a metro stop that can...

I stayed at Jv's on probably 5 different occasions this year. The first time was last March and since then, I knew this was the hostel of my choice when in Taipei. Very accessible to public transport, night market, and tourist spots. Clean rooms, toilets l, showers and comfortable beds with their own lamp, usb, and electric sockets. There is...

I really enjoyed it when all the guests stayed in the living room just for chill, talked about where to have a night out afterwards or even just some random talks. Somehow guests here all have the chances to talk and meet each other, which might not be possible in other hostels I've stayed before. I met so many cool...

With a night market downstairs, Taipei 101 a short walk away, and lots of bars and pubs very close, JV's Hostel is a great place to stay in Taipei. The staff are very friendly and helpful and made the hostel feel like home. Will definitely stay here again if I return to Taipei!

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
