This hostel is a good place to come home to in Taipei. I was with my wife and kid and got an ensuite room. They provided a separate bed for the kid which was nice. Towels and shampoo/body wash was provided
1] Less than 1 year old, quite new facilities with a nice LCD TV in our room
2] The place was quiet at night and allows you to get a good night's sleep
3] It was near enough to the Taipei Main Station if you are going to go there a lot for the HSR, transfers, etc (about 10-15 mins walk). It was actually nearer the Zhongshan MRT station though
4] They provided simple breakfast - toasted bread with delicious spreads and UCC coffee!
5] All the staff were very helpful and spoke very good English
6] They have a kitchenette downstairs where they provide ref, cooking utensils, plates, spoon and fork, microwave etc
7] They also have a coin-operated washing machine
8] 1 shared computer downstairs but they do provide free wi-fi
1] No elevators. It was quite a climb to the 5th floor where our ensuite room was located
2] No reception at certain times (10pm-6am I think). If you are checking in late, let them know and they'll be happy to wait for you
3] Not that much eating places near it. You'll have to walk a bit
4] They accept cash only so bring enough
5] It was a bit hard to find esp at night since the entrance was easy to miss hence I am attaching pictures around the place to help locate it
If I come back to Taiwan I'd probably stay in this place again. It was a nice place to mingle with other travellers too!
