Great Location. Nice Staff. Highly Recommended.”

I went to Taipei amid the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak in Mainland China. The staff of Flip Flop were so caring that they provided their customers with free surgical masks and alcohol hand sanitiser at the reception. The facilities are always clean. There is just one thing to take notice is that there is no lift, so if you come with heavy luggage, please consider this point carefully. The location of Flip Flop is less than a kilometre to the nearest exit of the Taipei Main Station, which makes travelling around Taipei and Taiwan pretty easy. I would be here next time I travel to Taipei.

Fall for Taipei”

They have been so generous from the start. I needed to go on a trip at 9am and they kept my things safe until I got back at 9pm to check-in. Also, I left my shoes the day I checked out but they kept it for me until I returned after 2 weeks to Taipei. It was clean, quiet, a minute walk from Taipei Main Station, close to Tim Ho Wan and lots of convenience stores and fast food chains, and the staff were lovely. Would book again if I ever visit Taiwan in autumn season again. It is a perfect resting spot for solo travellers!

Great Place!”

I only spent here one night, I wish I stayed longer. One guy from the staff showed me around a night market and helped me getting the Easy Card, another one suddenly talked German to me - they really made my first day in Taiwan extremely nice! Apart from that, the hostel is awesome. The beds are comfy, the washing areas were clean, the common space felt really nice and the whole style and design was really creative. I would definitely come back!

Beyond my expectation”

Staff is very friendly and accommodating. The location is very accessible - near 7eleven, McDonalds, malls and most importantly the train station. It's very easy to locate, which is very helpful for first timers. The room is very very clean, and cozy. I didn't expect that much, but yes, it was worth it. If I were to come back visit Taipei, I'll still choose this hostel. It provided me the silence, comfort, and privacy that I needed during my stay. Highly recommended!

Friendly Staff and Comfortable Bed”

What I love about this hostel is their friendly and accommodating staff and their comfortable bed and blanket. They have free tea offered to guests. They offer a locker huge enough for a luggage, and they also have a smaller locker near the bed. It is near the Taipei Main Station and Bus Station. I will definitely book this place when I visit Taipei again!

One of the best hostels”

Location is really, really convenient!! The common area and room were clean and comfortable. Hosts are friendly and helpful too. I was impressed with their pantry as they are very organized and thoughtful. By the way if you enjoy meeting new people they have activities that you can join when you are there. They also allow us to store our luggage (we are travelling around Taiwan) for a much affordable rate (better than keeping them in MRT stations as they charge per hour). The only downside is they have 5 floors and no lift. You gotta bring up your own luggage all the way to your room. Would definitely come back to stay!
