朋友般的親切服務,公共設備、衛浴跟廁所都很乾淨,室內裝潢和整體設計皆經過用心設計,讓視覺上與感受富有台灣文化的藝術氛圍,一走到門口就有種旅遊一天終於能放鬆的感覺,出門在外有這樣的選擇,可以說一住訂終身囉。^___^

What a friendly price with such awesome place! All the public space, toilet, and restroom is quite clean and nice, and u can enjoy lots arts with Taiwan culture. Travelers defenitely can chillout here, it's another lovely home and it will make trip much more perfect! 10 out of 10 for sure.

This hostel has everything you could wish for. It is new, spacious, spotlessly clean, and the facilities are excellent: free, fast WiFi in all areas, a fully-equipped kitchen, washing machine, free fruit, TV, large chill-out area, showers come with shampoo and shower gel, blow-dryers are provided, the hostel is cleaned daily. The bed is comfortable, the bed linen is new and feels great. Slippers are provided as shoes are not allowed inside. Snacks are for sale at a reasonable price.
The whole atmosphere is very welcoming, staff is super nice and helpful, with lots of great tips on what to do in Taipei.
The area is good too, Ximen area is lively, lots of street food (and other food) options, many shops around, a 10-minute walk to Ximen MRT station, which is just one stop from Taipei Main Station. All in all, a very convenient location.
The only thing that may not come in handy is that the hostel is six or so floors high but does not come with a lift. So if your room is on one of the higher floors, you are in for some stairs climbing :-) Also, if you are afraid of heights, some of their bunk beds come with three levels, and the third level is really high up. I imagine that not everyone is comfortable with that, but I'm sure staff would do their best to accommodate any wish with regard to beds.

Room Tip: Pick a lower floor if you're bringing a large suitcase :-)

The staff were warm and helpful. And the hostel is really modern and functional. The location is pretty good where you can do all the shopping within walking distance. Would definitely visit again!

As a solo, long-term traveller on a budget, I stayed at Meander more than 2 months and it was one of the best Hostel experience I ever had. The premise is new, clean, modern in style yet very personal. The owners make you feel at home, and the staff is extra-friendly and helpful.
The perks of staying at Meander includes:
fast wifi, available everywhere from the rooms to the lobby
Fully-equiped kitchen and dining area, with free tea and coffee
Ultra-clean spacious showers with free shower gel+shampoo and the showerhead has a lot of pressure, which is rare for a hostel.
Facilities cleaned everyday, use of slippers everywhere
Great location, close to the subway, Ximending is very central and fun during night & days, whether on weekend or weekdays. It's also safe, has a lot of options for food and is a shopping area, so you will not get bored!
The clientele is very mixed, you'll meet a lot of Asian travellers (Korea, Hong Kong etc) and westerners, some new to Taïwan, some others already settled in other Taïwanese cities and just looking for the best hostel to stay in Taipei. If you are new, the staff will help you get around Taipei and sometimes they organize tours.
Despite being in the youth part of the city (Ximending is the Harajuku of Taipei), this is not a party Hostel, it's a hostel for those who want to explore Taipei, with curiosity and open-mindness. You will be able to relax and refresh, and meet like-minded adventurers :)

I would recommend this place to anyone traveling to Taipei if you don't mind a short stroll to the metro. The nearest station Ximen is 10minutes walk in a stright line down chengdu road. The location diden't bother me at all and overall I think this place is great. I felt safe and the stay was comfortable and clean. The common area is spacious and quite a pleasant design. Wifi is free which was a good bonus.

Perhaps the best hostel I've ever been. The common area was awesome; the decoration is comfortable and inviting, and there's good variety of kitchen supplies. Room was simple but clean and there's locker and socket for every bed. We stayed in mixed bedroom for 10, and there was still very quiet and everyone respected others' sleeping habits. Bathroom was very clean, and unlike other hostels I have been in Asia, there was warm showers available. The staff was very friendly and gave us good tips were to visit besides the most usual tourist attractions. Location was also great, near metro station and very busy shopping area.

I was in Taiwan only for 5 days, and Meander helped make my trip so wonderful and convenient! Everything about the place screamed that it upheld cleanliness and respect. The staff was wonderful. They had tips pertaining to all the adventures I wanted to do while in Taipei and Taiwan and were so friendly. I stayed at Meander two nights, then rode around a little bit of the island on rented motor scooters the next two nights. They held my excess bags at the front desk and I did not worry one bit about them (of course I did not leave valuables, but that is common sense). When I returned everything was just as I had left it and I got to enjoy one more night at Meander! Next time I visit Taipei I am certainly staying here again!

Hello Spencer, thank you for all the positive review. You guys are so cool because you've chosen a local way to travel in Taiwan, which is adventurous but also memorable. Hope you enjoy your staying here, and maybe next time you can plan a longer vacation, travel to other small islands around Taiwan. See you again someday!
