      Nice budget hostel close to Taipei MRT station,”

      Me and my brother stayed in this hostel in the first week of February 2018. First off, the location's close but not quite near Taipei Main Station MRT. You have to first go to Taipei City Underground Mall, which connects from the staion and find Z10 exit (Z區) and from there walk south for about 250m and cross the road on the other side where you'll see a signage of Pillow Hostel. Check-in takes a while, have to deposit 100 NTD for the keys before they let you in to your room. They require everyone to remove their shows before entering so they have lockers for you to store them in. The room's not quite what I imagined as it's not really shown quite clear from the picture they provided. There is no door and use a long curtain that acts as a door. Not sure about female bathrooms, but males only have 4 stalls for shower and around 7 for the toilet, so you have to prepare accordingly. Common area is not that big but it's more than enough, they have a computer too that you can use.

      Cheap (early booking) and great value for money”

      This is a very great hostel especially for couples and those who are usually outside to explore the city and the country. I'd recommend this hostel instead of luxurious hotel or AirBnB. We spent 3 days & 4 nights and it was great! The location of the hostel is great since it's close to Taipei Main Station and Ximending (ximen station). We were able to walk to almost everywhere we go, because we like to walk. In the everning it's also close to many many stores. We brought our own towels and toothbrush though since they don't provide one, but it was fine. Also, we checked in at 3am in the morning since we arrived in Taipei at 2:30 am. I think they provide coffee in the morning but we were not able to try because we usually leave the hostel early in the morning for tours. Clean bathroom. Nice clean bed. Great experience! Really recommend.

      I stayed for 3 nights and it was absolutely worth my money! I checked in at 5 pm and had to wait for my turn for check in as the staff were really assisting each guest as she was explaining about the hostel thoroughly to each guest. The hotel is a 5 minute walk to the 228 peace park which is near the NTU station and about 8-10 minute walk to Taipei main station which is a great deal! Also near 711, family mart, and watsons. Thanks for a great stay!

      A 10-15mins walk to Taipei Main Station and maybe 20-25mins walk to Ximending. I love that you will prepare your own bed (giving you a clean bedsheet, pillow case and a blanket. You can get your privacy because each bed has its own curtain. There's a separate shower & comfort room for male & female. There's also a unisex shower & comfort room. a thing though, some of the areas on comfort room the garbage is full. You can also bring food and eat at their pantry plus with a free use of utensils and unlimited coffee and tea.

      Excellent location and particularly good double dorm beds”

      Very serviceable hostel a 5 minute walk from Taipei Main Station. It is located on the 9th floor of a building but the lifts are quick, there is strong wifi and complementary tea and coffee. The bathrooms were particularly clean and modern. The double dorm beds look out on the street but being so high up it is not noisy. It got a little warm when the aircon was off. Its a very minimal place, and the staff don't project any enthusiasm (unlike in SE Asian hostels) but the service suffices.

      I like stay at this place, affordable price. Environment pretty similar with any hostel. Spacious bathroom. Clean almost every time. They provide locker for shoes at entrance and locker for baggage in room. Hot and cool water dispenser. Huge freezer - but, a bit messy. You cant cook but there is microwave to heat. They provide tissue in toilet, shampoo and body shower. Toilet with bidet (I like it so much!) Location quite easy to find. Just exit Z6 from Taipei Main Station, keep to right, 2block away. Staff average English but still manageable. Somebody stay in receptionist at night, quite secure. Common area really silence. I don't care much about it. Limited slipper to walk around hostel, so I decide to keep hostel slipper in my locker shoes bcoz I don't want to find any if I return to hostel (sorry for that). There is umbrella in entrance, which you can borrow. What I don't like, I need to prepare my own capsule. Tight my own bedsheet, and quill.

      Not bad”

      Strategic location, not too far from the MRT station Taipei Main Station/Tao Yuan Airport MRT, walkable to Ximending too. If you dont mind walking some distance, there is a Carrefour at Guilin Road, about 6 - 7 mins walk from Ximen station exit 1. But they could improve more on the ventilation and area for hanging towels in the dorms. The damp towels caused some serious smell in there.

      If you're looking for a hostel, it definitely has everything you need from it, but do not expect privacy as the whole hostel is basically one connected area (except the female dorm). Place was minimalist, clean and straightforward. There was no proper door dividing the sleeping bunk bed area to the common area, we were chided when we had to open our luggage at the common area to keep our change of clothes and toiletries despite being as quiet as we could, we weren't even speaking to each other. Staff was efficient but lacking warmth. Price wise, it is possible to get a private room if you look for something at the opposite end of the Taipei Main Station, Beimen station area.

      There is a walk from the Main Station but it's still a great location. Shampoo/Soap/hairdryer is provided. I liked how the beds had curtains. They give you fresh sheets (flat sheet to wrap the mattress, duvet cover, pillow case) on your first night and you make your own bed and on the day you check out you pull off the sheets and throw them in a bin for them to launder. Each bed has their own light curtains to keep the light out/privacy, and a USB+plug to charge your electronics. Don't depend on them to provide breakfast. There is tea and water. They ran out of coffee beans and didn't buy fresh beans so I went out to buy some in the morning. It's still a good price so I can't complain. Bring your own slippers (shoes aren't really allowed inside) and towels (though towels and slippers are cheap if you decide to rent/purchase those kinds of stuff from them
