“good value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Cats pajamas is a chill hostel with clean beds and a very secure location. However, there is little interaction between travellers, which I found to be a downside. If you don't care about socializing with fellow travellers, then this hostel has everything you need, and is a great value.

I was been bitten by bed bugs when i was stayed in the hostel. The room and bed was dirty and full of dust. The only good thing to stay there was the location,It's very near to Shida night market, and that's all.

If you are in a budgeted trip to Taipei, this is a good place to stay in. They provide the most basic of basic. Clean sheets, relatively clean rooms. My friend and I stayed at the dormitory on the first night since we arrived at the hostel at 3am. A guest opened the gate for us when we rang the bell, good for us. The staff was nice enough to accommodate us. The only problem with the 8-bed dormitory was the other guest sleeping in the same room. The beds inside the dormitory room were double decked, so yes, if the person below keeps shifting, moving and whatever else he was doing, the person on the top bunk cannot sleep! Argh, you can't sleep in a dormitory with inconsiderate guests :(( so on the second and third days we decided to transfer to a private room, just two people in the room. We had our own bathrooms too so that was good.. The room was big but the bathroom was very small. It is a bit tight for big guys.
The hostel is 5 minutes from the nearest subway train so it was convenient.

This hostel was easy to find with the directions provided on their website. Walking distance to the Power House Station, and many places to get food and of course bubble teas. The showers always had hot water and good pressure and overall a pretty clean place.

I stayed in C.P's for one week and I had the best time there.
Was traveling alone and only met friendly people who brought me for dinners and parties.
Hostel is so clean and cute, bed room I had was minimal but clean.
I highly recommend this place, location is just perfect, people are so nice and you feel just like home... what else would you need.

Thanks for this nice stay!
Miaow :)

In terms of a hostel experience, it gives you everything you could need: cheap, clean, well located, and staffed by helpful and friendly people.

We were given a basement bunk-bed room, which although perfectly acceptable wasn't the greatest in terms of air circulation during the summer months, so I'd recommend you try to get a room on the ground floor. Other than that and for the prices charged in a lively area, there's not much to complain about here!

The place is ideal for backpackers. It is indeed few steps away to shida market. The staff are very friendly. Amenities are great.
