    Perfect hostel”
    Friendly and helpful staff who give lots of good recommendations for both sightseeing and restaurants. The hostel also does some activities. They had a super nice, very clean yet cosy and chill common room/lobby with a big TV, sofas, restroom, small kitchen, washing machine (but only cold water in the washing machine!), computers and an automat where you could for example buy beer. Easy to meet people in the common room. You could party there all night without risk of disturbing others who wanted to sleep. Every morning very basic breakfast was served or free. The hostel was seven minutes from the Ximen station. It seems to be a very popular location. The entire facility was very clean. I lived in an all girls dorm room for six. Barely noticed the others. The beds had a draper so you could pull it out and the bed became your own little cave-bedroom. The bed had power sockets and USB-portals. It was already made when I got there. There was a small safety locker each in the room.

    The hostel does not have night security. One Traveller sharing the same room as me brought his friend back. Kinda shocking to me. Total lapse of security. Please look into this for the safety of your guests going forward.

    Clean and helpful staff”
    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.

    Perfect for backpackers, great for families.”
    As a former world-travelling backpacker with extensive experience I would have loved this place and would have remembered it forever like I remember certain other hostels still today, many years later. The best point is it's easy to meet fellow travellers. The hostel also provide plenty of advice both personally and all over the walls. They also have a huge range of walking tours their staff take visitors on to show them the sites of Taipei. I think they also had some more extensive tours but not sure. They had all the facilities you needed, a clean room, and it's in a great location. The staff were also extremely friendly and helpful. Perhaps most backpacker hostels are like this all over the world these days and I'm just out-of-touch but I'd be surprised if there are many as good as this one. Even though now I travel with my family, we still met lots of young people to chat with and we really enjoyed our brief stay - wish we could have stayed longer.

    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 :-)

    The staffs are super friendly! They will give you a brief guide of where to find delicious food, attraction points(such as night market) that surrounds the hostel on your arrival day. They even have a list of top food/night market/attraction points (with clear direction) pinned on the wall, pretty awesome! I enjoyed the simple free breakfast there too. It is probably the best hostel i ever stayed and I will definitely choose this hostel again if I go back to Taipei!

Gave them a call on emergency line and spare key was provided within 15 minutes by the volunteer worker. Beds are good and bathroom facilities were clean. Staff are very nice and helpful. Walking distance to the Xinending shopping area and MRT station.

    Overall, it was a very comfortable stay at Meander Hostel. Their triple room may be small but it’s well maintained and clean. Breakfast is quite simple but sufficient to start your day with full of energy. The staff are also very helpful - always wearing good smile to all their guests. I was coughing and a bit unwell and I appreciate it when the reception asked me if I was ok and if I need some help. Such a kind gesture! The hostel is also very close to the MRT and night market, so it’s very convenient for food, shopping, transport and lazy stroll around Ximen during evening time.

Helpful staff.. nice big space on the main lobby and kitchen area.. spotless.. lots of room in the bedroom.. seperated dry amd wet area in the shower room..and they put a lot of detail on it.. nice strong hot shower.. you could hear the door sound and people outside a bit if rhey are loud.. but that's normal right... just bring your earplug.. breakfast could b more better but there're more food u should try outside in Taipei anyway...

Besides, everyday they organize a short trip to let us know more on taipei. I think this is a very good service for those who never been to taipei. Overall I would recommend this place to others !
