    The room (double balcony) was very comfortable, we slept well after a day of touring the city and hitting the night markets. The area is safe, we just walked to Ningxia night market on our first night in Taipei. Its right beside a 711 for anything you need. Will definitely recommend it to our friends and will book there again when we comeback.

    Good hostel!”

    The staffs are extremely helpful and welcoming. We arrived at the hostel way before check in hours, Larry was very helpful with our luggage storage and gives us guidance on how to get to our next destination before we even asked, that saved us some hassle in finding the way. He also explained to us clearly about the late check in procedure if we were to be back after reception hours, which we have also found out later that they sent email with clear step by step guidance. Larry also helped with our reservation with a restaurant that we would like to visit. The room is very clean, not very spacious, but is sufficient for two people. The common area has a very good atmosphere, it's a nice place to mingle with other backpackers.

    I’ve been to Meander Taipei few years ago. Meander 1948 is very new compare to Tp. Staff is very helpful & friendly. Breakfast was not included but was provided for free as Tahoja (coffee shop)’s soft run. Booked a mixed dorm of 4, spacious room and comfy bed. Cons: cleanliness of the bathroom could be better. Thank you, team Meander 1948. :)

    Stay in a beautiful, spacious, clean, mondern balcony room, if i visit Taipei again, I will stay there again. Breakfast is a surprise bonus. Only thing is I arrive after 11:00pm and check in counter is closed. Hotel send out message the same night after 9:00pm to show me how to use password to enter the hotel with image how to get my room key with my room number on it, with images attached what to do. No image attached on my message due to technical issue. I think this system need to improve for late check in. I was very stressed without receiving any images on the way to the hotel because the check in counter is closed and I have no clue how to get my room key at the middle of late night. Even it turns out fine, the stress from the airport to the hotel was no a pleasure experience the least.

    had a great short trip with friends here and we were more than satisfied with Meander 1948. Minor suggestions for improvement would be mirror in bathroom and rugs for the sink and toilet door. we love the common area and the free breakfast (the baked potato was DELISH!). its right beside 7-11 and famous crispy donut shop (you can see the long line of people everyday!). 10 min walk to Ningxia night market, clost to the main train station to EVERYWHERE.

    Overall hotel is so good in terms of location and service! Would like to thank you Larry in front desk is giving us so much good information around the area and he is extremely friendly! Good job! The balcony double room I book is big for me, overall is very clean. The common area on 4/F is definitely a nice place to chill with my friends! Location is also a plus, only 3 mins walk from the Airport MRT to Y13 exit! And it is closed to the night market! Only recommendation is providing 1-2 towels in room next to the sink in room and also provide the soap in room. But the rest is good. Definitely I will come back next time! Thank you Meander 1948.

    First Hostel experience while jetlagged. ”

    Had a long overnight layover in Taipei so I thought why not try staying at a hostel for the first time. I made a mistake of booking a bed in a 4 beds mixed dorm. Not a great idea when you're jet lagged. By the time I came to my room at 8:30pm, the other roommates were already sleeping. Other than that, the facility is clean and conveniently positioned near Taipei Main Station (easy access to the Express MRT train to the airport). The Ningxia night market is also 10 mins walk. Front desk staff was friendly and informative. I'd stay here again but most likely when I'm not jetlagged. Would get a single room if rate is good compared to hotels.

    Newly built hostel with friendly staffs!”

    First of all, I would like to thank all the staffs here for being really handful and friendly. They gave us free breakfast without any extra charges too! The hostel was really near to MRT that goes to Taoyuan airport but a bit far from the main station that goes to other areas. If I have to point out one thing that can be improve is that the cafe downstair closes too fast. Maybe they can sell coffee in the morning and sell draft beers at night and that would be great! And try to get a room with balcony or window because the room without a window that we stayed was so hard to wake up in the morning... and the air inside the room wasn’t good.
