      So-so hostel...”

      Its a bit far to walk from Taipei main station. Common area is too small and is located at the 6th floor, however, they have an elevator. We stayed at the Private room - double bed with bathroom, and it was ok. The bathroom is large and the water pressure is very good. The corridors are so narrow.

      Highly recommended Hostel in Taipei. Just near the MRT Station and other night market like Ximending Market. The place was so clean from their reception, rooms and specially common toilet was really good. We stayed here for 5 nights at mixed dormitory bed but there's no daily cleaning of rooms. Breakfast will always be the same everyday- loaf bread, egg, coffee/tea. But overall, I still find it a good place to stay.

It is perfect for travelers like us who does DIY trips because because it is a few minutes walk to Taipei Main Station and Ximen Station MRT. The hotel was also located beside National Taiwan Museum and 228 Peace Park. Thank you so much for making our stay worth-it!

      Nice common areas”

      Although it is not right next to metro stations (5 minutes walking distance to Ximen metro and Taipei train stations), I rather prefer this location as it offes a combination of convenience and nice environment - quiet and right next to the park. Male and Female rooms were located at different floors. Staffs are not very proactive but polite in general, but I hope they could have introduced the facilities a bit when I checked in. I like the common areas very much! i.e. the large kitchen and living room. It's nice to sit at the living room with friends or to meet other travelers. The rooftop "balcony" and the little outdoor sitting area definitely added value; you hardly find an accommodation with an outdoor common area in Taipei. One thing they should improve is the bed arrangement - I hardly go to my bed because the ladder (for the upper deck) blocked half of the space.

      Great location, great staff, great facilities”

      Pros: Great location - near the MRT and bus stop, near convenience stores, restaurants and banks. Great staff - very kind, would be glad to assist you if you need help with anything. Great facilities - bed is soft, room is clean, comfort room is clean and with essentials as hair dryer, cotton tips, cotton for face, napkin and shower caps and there is a dressing room where you can dress up and do your make up. They have a common room where you can cook your breakfast or any meal, eat your foods while watching tv. Con: Toilet needs to have bidet as it is had to clean yourself with just dry tissues. All in all, this inn is great for everyone. Would really recommend everyone to book you room here while staying in Taiwan.

      Worth the money but with some disturbances”

      The location is quite good near to Main station and even shops. Facilities are ok, toilet, showers and the lockers. But we bitten by the bed bugs initially I was the first victim but on our last day my husband was also bitten. The staff assisted us to change the beddings and to change room on our last night but we still insisted to stay in our bed. To the staff please prioritize to clean the bed bugs immediately as this will affect your good standing. Thank you and more power. We still recommend your place and we will be back.

      Very Humid Single Room”

      Single room's size is small but sufficient for a few nights, with good housekeeping tidying up room everyday. Good water pressure and drainage too. However, it gets really warm and humid while trying to fall asleep. Some nights are so bad that I woke up sweating. Windows are in frosted glass & permanently sealed, so it's as good as there are no windows as I don't know what's behind it. Coin laundry is available but the washing powder's dispensing case looks really digustingly dirty and unkept. Self service snacks are available with affordable prices though, and common areas are kept reasonably clean, but there are some quite unfriendly staff that borders on rudeness and arrogance. I would rather not return to see those again.

      Great Inn to stay!”

      We arrived at the hotel and was greeted by the staff politely. We left our luggage before check in time so we can start our tour. It was near the Ximen Station 4 beside Midtown Richardson. The first place we saw was the 228 Peace Park. It is also near convenience stores and the best this is it's near the Ximending Youth District. We go there at nights to shop. Very accessible to many places. It was our first out of the country trip of my sister and it was unforgettable. Plus factor is that the breakfast is free. Thanks Backpackers Inn, we would love to stay in here again.

      If I was a solo traveler, it might have been better .”

      The place is very well thought through but it felt everything was cramped up. not practical with 2 active boys. Otherwise compy bed, nice common area with balcony. I would have liked this place if I was a single :) This was the first accommodation ever that didn't provide towels. It maybe a common practice in Taiwan? but The next two places we stayed gave us towels so I don't know. Just make sure you bring some towels.
