    Beyond my expectationStaff 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!

    If it gets busy, it gets crowded”

    Smaller than its sister on Chang'an West Road. The public area/lounge/check-in counter/pantry is quite small; it can comfortably fit only about a couple dozen. Beyond that, it gets a bit cramped (and noisy). The staff is young, cool and very hospitable (and their great OOTDs are a combination of メンズノンノ meets Numéro meets chuvaness). A-ok!

    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!

    The places smells so good anywhere you go. The place is clean and has a cozy environment. I just had a little issue with the slight shaky beds with no curtain and a weak AC but still acceptable. That must've explain the low price.

    Good location, opposite Q Square which can easily accessible to Taipei Main Station (MRT, High Speed Rail & Bus Station. It's a hostel, so do not expect service like 5 star hotel. It does not have lift. Be prepare to carry your own luggage upstairs. However, the staff on duty that time when I checked in has offered to help me carry the luggage to 3rd floor. Thank you & bravo to that staff. Shared bathroom is clean. Basic essential items like shampoo, body wash & hair dryer are available. Can enjoy hot pot - Haidilao even during midnight as it's located on the 4th floor of Q Square.

    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!
