Girls toilet is clean but male toilet is dirty. Overall it’s good but staff wasn’t that friendly. Need to put your own bedsheet, pillow cover and BLANKET COVER . The bed / bed sheet is rather noisy if you move around on your bed.
Is located among one of the floor in the building”
Considered expensive for the type of staying. Each room is separated by partition like big paper box with curtain only (no any door). Even next bed whisper also can be heared. Very small space for luggage storing. Shower room is very small as well without hanging place.
The location is really good. 10mins walk to taipei main station, 15mins walk to ximending. Right smack in the bustling area with bus stop nearby to other areas as well. The place is clean but it can get a little noisy when people are using the bathroom. Also, the shower room is really very small.

my stay was just fine. Clean room, accommodating staff, with fridge too so you can store food and microwave to reheat it :) Convenient location since its in bet. Taipei Metro Station (2 blocks away 5-8mins walk) Ximen Station (10mins walking)
the location is great. the room is clean. but, the bathroom is located in the centre of the female dorm. omg, the bathroom door makes such horrible noise in the middle of the night. when opening and closing. u wont get any sleep, b coz of that. and next morning, the same thing happens. as soon as the 1st person uses the bathroom, u r awake!! no need 4 alarm
It dont have private room so clients have to keep silent and light as much as they can to avoid disturbing others while moving. From my bed to bathroom was quite far, my bed was in the end of alley. So it was a little tired of moving to wash off and try not to make noise.
Best hostel experience ”
Pros: - Nice location, 5m walk to Main Station (which will be reallg useful) - Has tons of food shop, milk tea shops, 7/11, many other attractions - Easy to find - Has elevator (hostel in 9th fl) - Nice, clean and comfortable bed, even for 2 - Big bathroom and seperate for male and female - Nice common room - Has PC for use - has locker Cons: - suitable for short stay, long stay will make you feel uncomfortable -
Love It ”
The staff on that day was really really nice!! She explained and introduced me around the hostel. She's really helpful 👍👍😊😊 and it's near to Taipei Main Station, very convenient. Comfy bed and tho the living room is a bit small but very homey 😊😊
Thanks for your sweet comment! We'd very love to receive you soon. Welcome back anytime!
Within a short walk to Taipei main station, Family Mart / 7 Eleven and Ximending. Dorm bed is good enough. Strange to me that all the guests are required to change the covers of bed mattress, pillow and blanket by themselves whenever they need to and upon check-out.
Clean and within 10 min walk from Taipei Main Station”
Hostel is clean and staff is friendly. However, staff is lack of the knowledge on commuting to the airport but very willingly to find out from me. Also, the check - in time is after 3pm but I was there early and I am able to leave my luggage at the open luggage rack.
-The staff are helpful in helping me with directions -Bed is comfortable. -It's my first time to make my own bed in a hostel and remove the pillow case, etc and surrender near the counter before check out. I expected when i arrived, i will just sleep.
it was worthy”
it was near the main station plus other main attractions and metro subs the ximending is also near a 5-10min walk , their alot of local foods and shop near sa hostel the staff friendly and accomodation but during myb3rd night there was an employee or staff that was yelling i dobt know what was that but it keep was awake early in the morning .. plus the aircondition is quite hot ✌ i wish it was a lityle bit cold. anyways it was a good stay
Observation after 5 visit”
I have been here for 5-8 times, I would say each aspect for scoring is average in pillow but I still choose here as my first choice. Below are the pros n cons I found - Pros 1. Arrange what I request, not every hostel can do that, big plus 2. No noisy when someone on upper deck is moving. Deck is strongly build 3. Noisy management is good. Sign everywhere for silenceness and even it’s pack n full house, low noise 4. Big locker for big luggage 5. Very cheap supplements and with tiolet paper a must. (Some Hostels no refill) 6. Walkable to Taipei station for early flight bus transportation 7. Takeoff shoes when enter, less dirty Cons 1. Pack n hallway with luggage always 2. Not too clean for tiolet as many guests 3. Allow kids/family booking which l highly recommend to set rules forbid 6 yo to come 4. Not very close to xiemun, walk need 10 mins which is bit far for me 5. Need self put on/off bedding pillow/blanket cover, if so, allow checkin 1pm n checkout 12pm
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.
Good point for location only- Need to improve more”
Prices: Pretty high for dorm Location: Near MRT, HSR, Ximending Market, Local food Stores Cleanliness: minus for this, dirty & bad smell, the sheet is also dirty, seem it is not changed for new guests Staff: Not friendly & useful, only anwser when you ask...c’mon you are working in hosipilities, need to be more active Facilities: Dryer not available at bath room, if you want to use, you need to ask- and it works not well, no tower, no toilet shoes &&& Please arrange how to keep lugguage more safely. Lugguage put anywhere outside, no name tag, no key, what happen if some customers take wrong luggage?
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.
The rooms have no dors only curtains so you ll hear people speaking and going in and out all day long, so it's definitely not the place to have a good sleep. I arrived at 2 am from the airport and then i saw that i have to make my bed what usually i wouldn't mind but when arrive late from the airport the last thing you want to do is your bed, and the worse thing was that the pillow and blanket cover wasn't even soft so you wake up every one because the cover make so mach noise when you do your bed.
Honest review of this hostel”
1. Location- About 10 mins walk away from the Taipei Main Station and the bus stop is just infront of the hostel so it's convenient. 2. Cleanliness- I wouldn't say it's dirty, but it wasn't that clean either. You can see the dust on the computer beside the long table where you will dine and stuff. Bathrooms were okay. (but please be mindful that it's a co-ed bathroom) Bidets were awful! The pressure was too much that it will hurt you. 3. Bed- This one is great since the bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean. (you have to make your own bed though). 4. PLEASE BRING THE FF: - slippers as shoes are not allowed inside the hostel. (10 TWD if u want to buy a pair of paper slippers) - towels (you have to rent 20 TWD if u dont have one) Overall: The location and the bed were just the + of this hostel. The staff weren't that accommodating as well except for that one girl, which I forgot the name. Anyway, since it was cheap I guess you just get the price that you've paid for.
Good location. It's about 5-8 minutes walk from Taipei Main Station exit Z8 (recommended) or Z10. The receptionist is very nice and helpful. Bed is comfy, but have to put the pillow case and bed sheet on myself.
Staffs were nice and accommodating and the place is situated just 5mins away from Taipei Main Station. The place is a little small and can be found in a small building. Lockers were provided for each. In here, you need to do bed making for your own bed in which most of the people I met here are quite surprised to do it and so am I,but it is not a big issue. It is good for short stay around Taipei.
