“Really enjoyed our stay in Banana Hostel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

Banana Hostel is conveniently located, clean and comfortable. My boyfriend and I stayed here our first night in Taipei and we loved it. Also, there is free home made banana bread, bananas and breakfast! Definitely recommend this hostel!

I will be really, really honest with you!
The banana hostel is the nicest, cleanest, prettiest ad definately the most charming hostel I ever stayed in!!
Lexi and Wilbur were great hosts and I never felt like staying in a hostel but more like at a very good friends house who is really keen on making the best out of your stay!
The hostel is located very well in the center of taipei and looks more like a small private apartment. The furniture is all new and so are the mattresses. More a hotel feeling than a hostel!

i got to know some really nice people during my stay because of the familiar atmosphere.. And we shared our travel experiences, had a little party (ask WIlbur for his gangnam style dance!) and it was just nice coming home in the evening feeling like returning home!
I cant tell how amazing and different this experience was, I totally loved it and was absolutely sad that I had to leave!

Also awesome of course the fact that you get free Bananas, breakfast and the best banana cake!!
If you have the chance to go to this hostel, visit taipei! Its a great place - al;most as great as the hostel!!!
