Nice place, great location”

I'd say this place is a great bang for your buck. I wish the sign had been a little more obvious (I wasted about 15 minutes walking around the intersection looking for it; turns out its on the 12th floor of one of those buildings). The place itself is quite clean (bathroom and beds). It's a little tight, but for the price it is a good value. It's very close to both Ximen and Beimen stations (as the web page indiciates), as well as Taipei Main Station (only about an extra 5 minutes walk past Beimen station). I was very thankful to be there, since everything was so close and accessible via MRT. Ximending was also nice to be close to - I walked through that area pretty much every night and did a lot of good window shopping and found good food there. Overall, I would recommend this place to a friend for sure, given the cleanliness, location, and price.

Best toilet among all the hostels' I've ever stayed! Contrary to some of the reviews here, I found the living space to be of just right size, probably because I only had a backpack with me so I didn't need much space. The only con was that the smoking area is beside the female dorm room. Although the room is enclosed, I could still smell cigarette whenever someone is smoking. But for the price I pay, along w the location, facilities + cleanliness of the place, I highly recommend this hostel!

I’ve booked to 3 different hostels during this trip. All has excellent ratings. But out of three, IPLAY INN is my favorite. It’s very near the ximending walking district but it’s not crowded. It’s not noisy and it’s very clean.

Value for money!”

Stayed in a private triple room with my family for several nights. It was quiet and clean room. And then we decided to extend but the place is packed so we moved to mixed dorm. We love the capsule type of accommodation. The only concern I have is the room stinks a lil bit cause of the guests’ stinky feet but iplay Inn is definitely highly recommended.

This property is listed in the heart of ximen coommerical district and 13 minutes walking distance away from Taipei Main Station. The bed itself was a modern private square. A spacous locker was provided with swipe card access. A common area with free ice coffee/tea and snacks provided me with an opportunity to relax and talk to others after a day of exploring Taipei. The facilities are cleaned and designed with young travellers in mind.

Good stay. ”

Pros: 1. Close to everything; shops and restaurants and about 5 mins walk to Ximen MRT station. 2. Staff are friendly and nice. Able to speak english well. They allowed us to leave our luggages even after check out which was very good considering we had an evening flight. 3. Provides simple breakfast. Unlimited coffee and tea. 😊 Cons: 1. The double deluxe room is just enough for 2. Not too small but not big. Price is a bit high. Maybe because it is in the center of Ximending. 2. Closet was provided with only 3 hangers. Could have provided hooks in the walls. 2. Could improve in the housekeeping. Total stay was okay. Besides, all we need is just a comfortable room to sleep to after a long and tiring day exploring, must say that the hotel was just fine. What mattered to me is the behaviour of the staff. They were really nice and accommodating.

A good budget stay!”

Am a person who don't require big hotel rooms & find a small space much more cosy and "safe". Just to note that I had a very big luggage (those that stands up to waist level) and once you open it down on the floor, there's minimal walking space. The toilet bathing space was also really small and water will spill out if you're a messy showerer. But I am definitely in love with how cosy it is with the bed by the corner. Summary - if you're looking to stay budget, this is a good hotel in good location. But don't expect luxurious toilet and big walking spaces.

Good value for money”

It's at the end of the night market area, which makes it close, but not too noisy at night. I liked that you pass by the night market from the train station to get to the hotel since there's lots to see. Only downside is the lack of shower curtain, meaning the entire bathroom gets pretty much drenched when you take a shower.
