Perfect for Solo Travelers!”

I was impressed with how Sleepbox Hotel accommodated me during my stay in Taiwan. This is the first time that I have stayed in a hostel and I didn't have high expectations. They ultimately exceeded my expectations I have no regrets staying at Sleepbox. The location is very good as it is very close to Ximen Station and NTU Hospital Station. The room is also clean which is great, however, they didn't have a personal fridge at the room where I was staying. The staff are very kind and they always say Hi whenever I see them. I will definitely recommend this hostel to my family and friends and will also consider booking this hostel again when I visit Taiwan.

Great location, Helpful front desk, great experience. A BIG THUMBS UP! ”

I am a solo traveler from the Philippines and it is my first time to travel internationally and all I could say is that I am very satisfied with SleepBox Hotel/Hostel. This hotel is located near the Ximen Station(Henyang Street about 3 blocks away)/NTU hospital station. Either way you can easily go to this area. I stayed there for 3 nights and I am really satisfied. The front desk is so accommodating and is very helpful. They can also speak good English. Also, I requested for a charger and I felt relieved when they were able to provide me one. And they just ask you to leave it in the tiny box right after you use it. I love the experience in this place and I highly recommend for people to go here! :) I was able to sleep well and I felt safe. The room is also secured. I love the interior design of the place including my space. You can also heat your food and they provide free water too. Over-all experience was awesome! I would surely go back to this place in the future.

Location was perfect!”

Hostel is near Blue and Red Line. 15 mins walk to Taipei Main Station. Also theres a 7eleven, Starbucks, Subway, and other restos near by. It 2 blocks away from 2/28 Peace Park where you can go/jog in the morning. Wi-fi is reay fast, I appreciate it. You can leave your stuff while waiting for check in by 4pm. Cons - No towel included. Had to rent for NT$100 Capsule is not sound proof. You can hear other room mates. Whenever you need to go up especially if you're assigned to upper capsule, it is really noisy, the capsule itself. No water refill atleast. Do not stay in the living area - I have a lot of mosquito bites 🙁

Twin with Shared Bath - good value for money!!”

Stayed at this hotel for 7days & 6 nights. The room was small although I would think its enough for us to sleep in and keep our luggages. Shared toilet&bath were clean. Shampoo and soap provided. They also have hairdryers. There are towels, slippers, and toothbrush for rent/sale. What we extremely liked is the location!! It’s a walking distance to Ximending (which was our favorite shopping place), bus stations, ATMs, MRT, Taipei Main Station, 7eleven (really good preheated foods!), drugstore (needed to go for my allergies!), and a lot more!! There were some mosquitos in our room although, they didn’t really bite. WiFi was extremely fast!!! For food souvenir shopping, there was a store near the hotel on way to Ximending! They offer better price than the what the night markets sell!! Also, not much people in that store since the location. I suggest looking around the hotel for shopping food souvenirs.

Convenient and cozy”

As a frugal traveler, sleepbox is good choice for a hostel if you're staying in Taiwan. It is conveniently located near exit 4 of Ximen Station. It is only 5 minutes walk once you exit. It is also walking distance to two attractions the President's Palace and Freedom Park. All basic amenities are available. The beds were nice and comfy. There's also a laundry area for those staying longer. Staff is very friendly and they could also book your tours for you.

Small room but worth it.”

just 3 blocks away from exit4 of Ximen MRT, the place's very accessible to everything in Taipei. Hole-in-the-wall eateries are just a few steps away. Facilities were very commendable, well, except for the busted night lamp we had in the room. WiFi is operational. The girls manning the reception area were very helpful! just had 3 concerns though: 1. CheckIn time starts at 4pm; we arrived in Taipei early in the morning so we really just had to hop around different areas for the meantime to pass time. kinda hard to explore the city immediately on the first day without having to rest first (they allowed us to use their showers though to freshen up, but had to stay at the lounge afterwards to wait); 2. security's lax, anyone can come and go as they please. arrived 8am and nobody's still around. I can go literally anywhere in the hotel and do "something" and leave without getting caught(I think its their culture, which I admire. I can leave my bag open and I can be assured nobody will touch my stuff); 3. that big guy in the reception area that speaks English. I asked him if he could help me translate something, he just said "I don't know," told him I don't read Chinese and that Google translate doesn't help much, he just brushed me off and said "I don't use that." he's evidently chinese, he talks Chinese to the other employees. I just wanted him to read for me what the card I was holding says. tsk. (I apologize for the long commentary) Aside from these 3, everything went perfectly well!

Very clean restroom and i like how the rooms have high ceiling which gives more space to the compact room. Staff were very helpful and they even have refrigeration and water refilling station in the pantry. A bit of walking distance from ximen and taipei main station, but it is located in a rather busy street.

The hotel is very accessible to MRT Ximen Station Exit 4, maybe 5 to 15 minutes walk from there., It is also very near to GaKuDen Bakery, which is the meet up place for Klook buses going to Yehliu, Shifen and Jiufen, as well as Ximending shopping area. We went there around 11 AM, and opted to pay NTD 100 for early check in. The staff were very nice and explained that the room we availed (double room with private shower) only had private shower, but the toilets were shared. The room was nice and clean, with hot and cold water options. The stairs for the bunk bed however, cannot be secured and locked so you need to be careful when going up the bed. You can also use the pantry and you can refill your water bottles since they have a water dispenser that's free of use. Check out is a breeze, you can drop off your keycard at reception desk. Overall, would recommend to anyone staying in Taipei.

Good Hostel”

My second choice of hostel in Taipei, near Taipei Main Station and walking distance to Ximending. Rooms are a lil bit small but clean. Design is good and have a common area on the basement, too bad they dont have breakfast included in the booking unlike other cheaper hostel nearby. Staffs are so so, can speak English. We just had a little problem as the airconditioning on the room of my friends is not working when we arrived late night and had to search for the staff to fix it, and the staff is not that accommodating/friendly maybe because she is already sleeping and we had to disturb her. Then they just moved in to another room. We hadnt checked the other room because when we got there, the room is still being cleaned so we just told the other staff that we will just go to the other room when we get back later at night so that we will not waste time waiting. Anyways, the staff apologies to us.

That's why i have coordinated my concern through my tour reservation so that to avoid any no show to my tour. Justin and the other guy are too kind for their guests.

Conveniently located near an MRT station and several restaurants and shops. It was spacious and comfortable. Good common rooms with free WIFI throughout the hotel. Good value for money.

This property was awesome. I stayed 2 nights with my cousin after we traveled from South Korea & I stayed in their capsule on my last stay in Taipei after my cousin flew back to Australia. We surely needed a good place to rest. The capsule is made of plastic, so you gotta be careful not to disturb your neighbours as the material sounds "fragile", anyways, the bed was nice to sleep in. This property says it all. Valued for money. And don't fuss about things since you paid for the price. I recommended this property to my friends and relatives as well. Thumbs up!!
