Sharehouse 132
Ranked #33 of 265 Specialty Lodging in Taipei
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Stayed in the female dorm for 4 nights - room was well maintained, albeit a little small (i think there is a larger dorm room though). Staffs were friendly and service was good! Excellent location - easily accessible from Zhong Shan & Taipei Subway Stations (both within walking distance); very central.

Oh, and I loved the steamed dumplings served in the alley near the dorm; 福大蒸餃, be sure to visit! :)

We stayed in a private room (private bathroom) for two nights. The staff was very welcoming and nice! Our room was large for hostel standards, and bathroom was clean and looked new!
The best thing about this hostel was the breakfast, this was the only place during our Asia trip where they served whole wheat bread and four types of fresh fruit! (grapefruit, peaches, guava and tasty apples!). They also had great art hanging on the walls!
Location is close to Taipei Main station, and it is in a lovely part of town. Shops are all around.
Would definately stay here again if I visit Taipei.

Star's location is excellent very close the MRT, the service was friendly and it is well maintained. The rooms had everything you would need, good internet connection, places to charge your electronics. The breakfast is very healthy which is very important to me. Star is the only place I'd stay in Taipei.

I booked a single room and stayed twice for a total of about 7 days. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The common areas were spacious and clean. Especially the lounge area near reception. Good internet connection and also a computer in the lobby for those without their own with a great connection. Breakfast was healthy. The location cannot be beat, walking distance to the metro, one stop away from the central train and bus stations. The neighborhood is quite posh with a Louis Vuitton store across the street. There is also an artsy film house in a colonial building with beautiful outside sitting area / cafe / garden just up the street. Staff arranged for a mango shaved ice party one Friday night. Although I am not always extroverted, I had a great time, met many friendly fellow guests, and had wonderful mango shaved ice. Taiwan is one of the friendliest countries I have ever been to and the friendliness shines in this clean, budget-friendly hostel. I would definitely return.

I stayed here for 6 days with 3 other friends for a holiday in Taipei. We all agreed that the accommodation, cleanliness and service were excellent. Our only nitpick was that our 4-person room was slightly small but considering the price, it was quite reasonable.

The hostel also happens to be a in a great central location close to public transport to travel to everywhere in Taipei (just ask the very helpful staff for directions). There are also many interesting shops and great food in the vicinity of the hostel that are helpfully highlighted on a map in the common area (again, just ask the staff).

Definitely recommended for anyone looking for a comfortable and enjoyable stay in Taipei on a budget.

We stayed here on two different occasions. The first time was great! The room was well appointed especially for a hostel with a good shower and clean bathroom. Internet worked well and we could charge all our electronics.

Our second room was not so good, although equally well appointed. However, there were ants everywhere (walls, bed, on anything you left on the floor). Thinking this might be because of that room's proximity to the outdoor patio but not sure. If you can request a room, maybe don't get 503!

Other than that, this hostel is great. The staff are very kind, the location is central, right on the Zhongshan MRT station, and the common room is very comfortable. The breakfast is also awesome!

I must say that this is a very nicely decorated and cosy hostel. The staff are very friendly and the place is very well maintained and clean. The only downside about this place is the noise. I was put in a room that is near to the communal toilet and shower area and for the whole night, you can hear people showering and going in and out of the toilets. So if you are a light sleeper like me, make sure you bring along your ear plugs. Overall, it was still a nice experience even though I did not get much sleep.
