      One of the best hostels in Taipei”

      First time in Taipei and had a the best time at Meander. Big common room to hangout, great staff, clean toilets and showers. This hostel also is a hub for social backpackers. Every night there seems to be an activity happening and the common area can get very lively especially on the weekends. Best part is the staff, I want to thank Nadia and Claire for being so helpful and giving great customer service. The staff at this hostel seem to be very happy with their jobs and it shows. I am planning on staying there again.

      Friendly, enjoyable place to stay”

      Stayed here twice on my first visit to Taiwan. The hostel is very clean, and the staff are friendly and helpful. There’s a large open area on the ground floor to eat and socialise. The water pressure in the showers is deliciously strong and the heated toilet seats... Each individual bunk space has a shelf, a light, two plugs sockets and two USB outlets. There are privacy curtains on every bed. WiFi connection is strong and fast in the rooms and the common area. The mattresses are foam and a little soft / lacking in support. Breakfast is free, but is very basic and the same everyday - there is a large fridge and a microwave so you can cook and keep your own food. Enjoyed my stay and will return

      Very good hostel!”

      I had a pleasant stay here. 5-10mins. walk to Ximen Station and Ximending area where a lot of shops and food stalls are located. The staffs are awesome! Very friendly and accommodating. I stayed in a 4 bedroom en-suite female dormitory and the bathroom is very clean. During the first night of my stay, I found out that my luggage's handle was broken causing me to buy a new one. Good thing there's a shop at Ximending that sells luggage and bags. I had to ask the staff of the hostel to dispose my old luggage upon checking out and they gladly helped me. Overall experience was great! Had fun during my 2 days stay in Taipei.

      Nice staff but small and humid room”

      The location was great. The room was small and humid but was quite clean. The staff was really nice and friendly. No 24-hour reception. Toiletries and towels were provided. No elevator to the second floor. There were a nice common area and a kitchen. We were told to take off our shoes. It was totally fine for us but the provided slippers were uncomfortable.

      Very small double room. Lift only start from the 2nd floor, imagine you have to carry your luggage from the 1st floor. No room service; when I asked for room cleaning the next day, the reception replied that they will only do that when they have time! Shocked!!! No matter how long you stay, you have only entitled 2 bottles of mineral water, once finished, you have to go down to the lobby to refill the water. Not even a paper cup provided in the room to drink water. Distance 15 mins walk from Ximending MRT station. With this price, you can get many other choices in this area!

      Recommended if you travel solo. Location is good, it's a shopping and eateries district, required some walk about 10-15mins, distance from MRT Ximen station 750meter as showed in google map. A bit problem if you have big luggage. Need to climb staircase for one floor level first then only got elevator to the upper floor. You will be welcomed by helpful staff. I stay in a female dorm with attached bathroom, they clean the room and bathroom every day, it's very clean. Bed is very comfortable like hotel bed. They provide simple breakfast with toast, bread, porridge, fruits, oatmeal, tea bags.

      Excellent hostel ”

      This hostel is the best I’ve ever seen. The staff at Meander go above and beyond for the guests. I stayed in a 4 bed female dorm with en-suite bathroom. The bathroom was clean as was the room. We each had a small locker in room. Charging ports, light, and privacy curtain for each bed. The public area of Meander was also clean. Breakfast was simple, but nice. They had a wonderful walk providing directions and suggestions on where to eat and sights to see. The staff were also incredible with recommendations. There was a warm environment at this hostel and they made it a great place for solo travelers to connect. They also highlighted one excursion or event daily, such as hikes with their staff or explorations of nearby temples. I was sad to leave Meander at the end of my stay. It is about 10 minute walk to Ximending Subway Station, but also there are several buses close to the hostel. I used both and was able to get around easily on public transport.

      Best hostel in Taipei!”

      The hostel had a very good location and was very clean. There were only 4 beds in the female dorms so the room wasn't cramped. Their staff is also very friendly. I needed to book a dinner reservation since I didn't have a local number. Thank you so much, Claire for calling! It's a great hostel to meet people since there's a common area for everyone. My hostelmates and I went karaoke-ing and it was fun! Will stay here again when I return to Taipei :-)
