Metropolitan Hostel
Ranked #180 of 277 Specialty Lodging in Taipei
Reviewed April 18, 2011

I seriously advise against this place. Their complete lack of service or management almost destroyed our weekend in Taipei. The place per se is OK, the rooms are tiny but new and clean-ish, located in an attractive residential area. HOWEVER, there is only a completely elusive management company called "dayrentking" in charge of running the hostel. They do not read their emails, do not check their bookings and do not even answer the phone (!!) most of the time. Wasted hours checking in even though we arrived on the dot as stated on our reservation. When we tried to extend our stay, no one in charge was at first available, we then had contradictory responses and ended up having to rush back to the hostel to vacate the room. The person responsible for managing the hostel is disorganised, lazy, incompetent, unhelpful and rude. Another half-day lost. Judging from the comings and goings in the morning, the place also appears to be used by the sex trade.

Room Tip: Stay away!
