                  Stayed 1 night in November 2018

                  Perfect place to stay if you're on a budget”

                  I chose this place to stay for a night in Taipei as I was in a transit to XinZhu the next morning. The place is clean and the common area (including the shared bathrooms) are very clean and spacious. You can meet people from all walks of life if you stay here as you can communicate with them in the common area (which I have a chance to sit down and chat with some backpackers in the morning). The place is quite easy to locate and there are 7-eleven and Family Mart around the corner. The receptionists are also very friendly. Overall, nothing much to criticize.

                  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.

                  Cleanest dorm ever!”

                  I went to taiwan with my boyfriend last Oct 2019. He wanted to try the Dormitory experience and came across this hostel on agoda. We arrived late in the evening and the place was very quiet and has dim lights. apparently, they have light's off time and they value silence which is for me has advantage and disadvantages. During the morning you can talk like a normal people but the place is still quiet and speaking in a very low voice is like the norm in the place. Superb cleanliness even in the bathroom. They have shared bathroom and one for girls. I just hope we can change the sheets everyday. We stayed 4 nights and they did not change the sheets.

                  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.

                  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.

                  The location is wonderful, near by mrt, near ximending but not too near to be affected by the noise. Small room, bathroom and wc are ok, wifi ok, they allow you to leave the bag after checkout. Free tea and coffee. Noise from other guests can be issue as there are people packing stuff at 2am or early morming. Cleaning is a added point, staffs are nice friendly and speak english well.
