Clean and Cozy”
I noticed how often they clean the facilities in a day. Bunk beds, sheets and curtains are all clean too. The staff are friendly and accommodating, One thing im not happy about it though is that I had a hard time looking for the place because there's no signage of the hostel at the lobby or outside the building. I had to look around several times. Thanks to the hospitality of one security guard from a nearby Gym who escorted me to the place. :)

Very good”
Rooms were very clean however the bathroom was really dirty and it could stay dirty for days (very clearly dirty floors with lots of hair!) without anyone cleaning it. The toilet paper also ran out -constantly- in several toilets in the bathroom. The staff was a great mix of both in-polite staff who didn't say hi, to some nicer staff greeting you happily - the volunteers were mainly happy. The location of the hostel is amazing, and it is about 500m from Main Station when coming from the airport, and a little bit further to Taipei Main Station MRT. However there are two other MRT stations close by as well. There's also a night market just around the corner. For the price of the hostel, it's very worth it mainly for the location and also comfortable beds. During my stay, the bar holding the curtain for a bunk bed broke and I free fell down from the ladder while climbing down. They did not attempt to put up signs to warn from holding on to the bar.

Good location and value for money”
The location is near the Taipei Main Station, just a 15-minute walk and near a night market. Rooms are okay, staff are friendly. The only problem we have encountered is that it has no Starbox Hostel Sign outside the building, and we had diffuculty looking for the hostel.

Fun and Laid-back environment”
Good area. MRT Zhongshan is only 5 minutes away. Staff is friendly. You get to meet nice mix of travelers from the around the world. I would only wish if they could get a fan for their shower rooms as it gets really hot and humid.

Great place to stay with very reasonable price”
The place is hidden in 4th floor of a building (right above Starbucks) there's no sign of a hostel or its name board or anything. If we were not asking 7-11 staff that time we won't find it. But, overall the place is really clean, the bathroom even it's shared, was super clean and comfortable, the staffs all are nice, the breakfast also good enough to start your day. Thank you Starbox Hostel!

Except the escort need to go upstairs”
Good location. Nice beds. Showers are a little bit too humid and stuffy. Great lounge. But, I do not like the fact that guests need to be escorted upstairs because the residents of the building do not want to see or deal with the foreigners. The management of the building has a sign explaining at the front desk. It is not easy for the staff and the guests. Even if you just went to convenience store for 3 minutes, they have to come down to take you and accompany you. It is also very bad for the environment and for that poor elevator.
