I showed up to the hostel not having any specifics plans of what I would do in Taipei and I made a plan for myself in a few minutes with Chunky. There are delicious food options nearby and it's easy to get...

There are free snacks in the main area, free breakfast, and there is one bathroom per dorm, which is nice. The beds were quite comfortable for...

Perfectly situated close to Taipei Bus Station, Taipei West Bus Station, Main Train Station and Taipei Metro Station. I would certainly go to Chunky's guest...

We booked a dorm room as there were no probated left. Rather than being in bunk beds though we were able to sleep in a room with mattresses on the floor and room dividers so we could push our mattresses together which was nice of them. The place was nice and up together and Chunky is very helpful with any...

I think most important thing of hostel is host's service mind. In unfamiliar country, tourists feel difficulties of language and traffic info and etc.. I can't speak Chinese so I felt difficulties while traveling but chinky became good supporter in Taiwan he helps lots of things whenever I ask something so I felt comfortable while traveling.
