We stayed with them for 3N. We were supposed to check in at 8am but changed plans and told them that we will be checking in at 2am instead. They were very accommodating and waited for us to arrive at 2 in the morning!!!!
Breakfast was simply coffee or tea, with bread/toast and various spreads and fruits, just enough to get me going to start my day.
They have helpful staff, who tries to help you on how to get to attractions or places. The hostel is just a short walk to the Zhongshan MRT station, and other bus stations, very convenient for those on DIY tours.
The room that was given to us was clean and has big windows. The bathroom was clean, towels were changed and toiletries were replenished. Better than some 3 star hotel I had stayed in the past. I hope they keep it this way… clean and homey!
Since this is a no frills hostel, expect the rooms to be minimalist which just consist of a bed/s, flat screen tv, a table and a small space for two people to move around. This hostel has five floors and don’t have any elevators, so those having many huge luggage should take this into consideration.
Overall, I would recommend this hostel to friends who are on a budget and would stay here when in Taipei.
