“Clean decent place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012 via mobile

Pros: friendly helpful staff, very clean, free laundry, very basic breakfast for free, good location, small lockers available
Cons: common area is not very comfortable (but there is a nice coffee shop below), 4 bedroom dorm is small and windowless, no secure place if you need to leave luggage, sometimes hard to locate staff.
Bottom line: if you are looking for more social cozy atmosphere that comes with a hostel lounge, or if you need lots of input and info typical of hostels then this might not be the best place for you. If you are an independent traveller simpler looking for a simple, clean, good value place then I would not hesitate to recommend this place.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

Stayed for 2 nights in the 6-bed female dorm. Room is sort of small but clean. Bed is too soft, can feel the wood planks underneath. Room does have A/C though. In total, there are 13 beds in the hostel, 2 showers, 2 toilets & 2 sinks all located on the same floor. Upstairs is a small common room but it didn't really feel comfortable. Hostel offers free use of the laundry machine with a clothes line to hang dry, free WiFi, lockers. Only a few mins walk to the MRT which is so easy to use. The staff was great, very helpful.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

I stayed at Parachute hostel for 3 nights and the experience was good. It was only a few mins from Taipower Station, very easy to be located. The staffs are friendly, even their pet dog is. ^^ The enviroment was comfortable and clean. Except for the bed that is too soft that you can feel the plank, the rooms, common area, bathroom and toilets are all in good condition and clean. I will stay there again if I visit Taipei next time. P/S: the photos posted by other reviews here can be trusted.

Room Tip: If you only need the basic, a bed to sleep and an area to wash up, this hostel is a good choice.

The staff were very very polite and nice, I was so amazed. The rooms were nice and airconditioned very well. The internet is free and fast and there was a lot of free shampoos left by other travellers. The location is pretty good but I had a hard time finding it but only because I can not read chinese..
