    Really nice hostelOne of the best hostels I've stayed in. Quite large with a fair bit of public space so you have fun to relax when you aren't running around the city. The staff is friendly and it looks like that have group tours and activities, though I didn't try any. The location is also near Taipei Main station.

    Modern and Affordable Place to Stay for Solo TravellersThe facilities are very modern and I love the vibe of the entire place. The rooms are not very tidy although understandable because you’ll have to share it with at least 2 other people. Quite noisy but they provide earplugs if needed. The bed was ample sized and comfy so I never really had a hard time falling asleep. Breakfast is not noteworthy but still a good thing to have. The bathrooms are shared so the cleanliness is not guaranteed. The hostel is near the Zhongshan station where you can shop and dine and your gateway to many of the tourists destinations in Taipei. Overall, I had a good stay and will recommend this to those who can compromise a bit of convenience and comfort to save money for this is really a bang for the buck.

    Alright I had really high hopes for Flip Flop because I saw it mentioned in a few travel blogs. I thought there would be fun events to meet fellow travellers but everyone seemed to keep to themselves and it wasn't a fun, young hostel vibe. Moving around the place was also really hot because everything was outside with no aircon. After showering, you start to sweat immediately because the bathrooms are so stuffy. The location isn't very good either. All in all, there are better hostels with similar pricing that I went to later that I would recommend more.

    Great hostel with brilliant design”

    Great hostel close by the main train station. Immaculately clean and comfortable common areas. I was in a 6-bed ladies only room. While the design and layout of the bunks were great, be aware that there is hardly any space inside the room even to open up your suitcase but overall was great and will stay here again if I come back to Taipei.

    Shared shower and toilet are not segregated by gender. There are 2 toilet stalls and 3 shower stalls per floor, could potentially be a problem if the place is full. Shower stalls are too small. Better to get a room with a private bath. Other than this, the place is great and centrally located. Just a 3-min walk to the metro station.

    Great location!”

    There are two MTR stations near the hostel which is the taipei station of taoyuen airport station and zhongsan station (take around 5 mins walk) There is room for improvement in the service. It takes us around 15 mins to wait for check in. During our check in, there was staff cleaning the window but she just asked us to wait for the staff who is responsible for check in. It is a bit weird that there is only one staff responsible for check in even there are 4 pairs of guest waiting for check in.

    Everything is great”

    Location, staff, cleanliness are all great. Though there was a misunderstanding regarding my booking (system glitch i think) the staff and the manager was able to fix it and upgraded my room with no extra charge to double with garden instead. I love the interior and the place has a unique vibe. Security is a plus factor too. Breakfast is good though i prefer self service like doing my own sandwich rather than someone is preparing for it. From Taipei Main station, exit to Y3 or Y5 to get to Qsquare and then exit Q2, cross the road and walk beside 7 11 and walk further and turn right to get to the hostel. Nearest station also is Zhongshan station. Kudos to Kate in the reception, best customer service. Would definitely stay here again. 👍👍

    Simple and basic but exceptional service”

    Absolutely nice hostel where I would choose to stay again if I ever go back to Taipei. The staff were all friendly and helpful, the hostel is clean and well-kept. It is very quiet area but just short walk to Zhongshan Station and Taipei Main Station (bus and train hub). It is in the middle of many shopping districts: Ximen is about 25 mins walking, Ni xin is approx the same, Zhongshan is only 3-5mins walk . There's a nice, neat kitchen and library and a small cafe where you can meet everyone. I used the 3 bedroom female room and there were plenty of space. The solo room is not a good deal though.

    Besides it’s great location- close to subway, bus terminal and train station, neat facility , and nice airy public shared area.. its staffs are cordial and helpful, all of them! One staff named Sue (the one with long black hair and sweet smile ) gave me timely and valuable tips on where to go, also helped me to call places where I wanted to go so to make sure they are open during Chinese New Year .. all and all, great experience .. couple of things need to improve though, can someone buy some invents to get rid of the mosquitos in the public area? Also coed bath/toilets can be awkward.. even though I understand the reason behind it be to utilize it more Efficiently.

    Cute hotel but too many rules!”

    The hotel was nice and in a great location. But there were so many rules (which is probably typical of a hostel? I'm not so sure) that we were always scared to make a move. I guess it's safe to say that we didn't feel at home. The rooms were tiny, but had everything we needed for just one night.

    Most of the hostels that I have stayed at in the past have very cluttered interiors. This one is like a breath of fresh air, seeing as most of the interiors are very minimalistic. Only suggestion is putting some trash bins in every room. It's very tiring to go outside just to throw some trash. Breakfast were very good too!
