Sharehouse 132
Ranked #29 of 241 Specialty Lodging in Taipei
Reviewed January 23, 2011

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

Pros:
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

Cons:
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!

The Star Hostel in downtown Taipei was perfect. Open only six months when we stayed, it looked brand new. The staff work hard to keep it clean all the time.

The living room was very spacious and relaxing. My daughter and I spent a lot of time there just hanging out surfing the web. Everything in the place looks brand new...new floors, new fixtures, new windows, etc.

The location is perfect, right along the train line and among many small Chinese.

I've traveled around many parts of the world and for the vast majority of my time trekking, I've stayed in hostels. Star Hostel in Taipei has made my personal list at one of the top three hostels I enjoyed staying at. This place wasn't a year old when I visited it, and yet the staff members made it feel like they've been doing this for years. They are extremely friendly, kind, speak English, and best of all very informative and willing to answer any of your questions, especially Cloe - go ahead, ask her anything.

The rooms and bathroom facilities are cleaned daily, they have female and mix dorms as well as private rooms with their own bathroom/shower and Television if you need it. Free internet and WiFi is provided and a washer and dryer are at hand for a small fee. You can't help but find yourself interact with other guests especially in the morning when you are enjoying your complimentary breakfast. For me the place felt like home away from home. If I ever make it back to Taiwan this is where I'll be staying. Thank you gals and guys for a wonderful time and an even better experience.
