    Nearby was night market and accommodation arrangement to be improve”

    It's locate just right beside the night market. Accommodation arrangement to be improve. When I check in, my locker was used by other roommate, so the staff ask me to use another locker. The next day, I saw my luggage was being removed out and someone was using my locker. (Meaning someone overtake my locker). I sincerely felt it's not secure and by right the staff should firstly unlock the locker for my check in.

    Nice hostel and location”

    Clean hostel and breakfast was included which consisted of a hot drink (no coffee) and bread and eggs. The hostel was clean considering the amount of people that was there. The room contains A LOT of beds. The room is huge and split into 2 sections 12+ beds on each section. This made for a sleepless night as the lights were on until late and many people coming in and out. There was also a lot of noise from the common area. This is expected from a hostel but this was one of the worst sleeps i had during time in Taiwan and perhaps of no fault of the hostel, was just too many people in the room for me. Still recommend as the location is great (10 min walk to taipei main station).

    Decent hostel in a very nice building”

    My main complain on this place is that it's not honest in how they sell the rooms and that they should be more strict with their policies, the rooms are actually separated by a curtain and is in fact one huge room subdivided into smaller rooms but you can hear anything in the next "room" and man it was noisy. It's the first time in my life as a traveler where I've been in a hostel were they let families with a baby and several small kids stay. I didn't have a good night sleep on the first night, luckily no babies on the second one, but still, the fact itself that they let them stay was off-putting. There is also the issue with having someone pick you up each time, I thought I wouldn't mind but as other said, but when I wanted to go at 2 am to the convi store I felt like it would be a bother and ended up not going, it is in the end rather annoying and easily solved, just put a reader in the elevator which you activate with your room card and it only allows you to only choose floor 4.

    Pro : Good for solo or group backpackers Spacious, neat and clean 10mins walk to ZhongShan MRT Starbucks and convenient stores nearby Bathroom and shower room is clean Bed is comfortable and clean They have curtains for you to have your private time Staffs were very helpful and friendly Cons The room is shared so noise have to be kept to minimum Location of aircond is not very ideal but thankfully we got the breeze Have to wait for the staffs to pick you every time we have to access the lift You have to be quick with the lift if you are travelling with a group of people, cause it will not hold open for too long. Overall it was a fun and great experience. Would recommend and come back again!

    Fun stay in Taipei”

    Staff was pleasant and the common area had a good vibe to it that made me wish I had more time to spend here and socialize. The rooms were clean and people were good at maintaining the quiet hours. The location was pretty cool with a view of a major intersection, but the entrance was hard to find as you have to go into a small lobby to call the elevator. Once we did find it the directions made sense and the elevator attendant took us up. Breakfast was pretty simple but I don't mind since it was included. I'd stay here again and recommend to anyone on a budget who enjoys the capsule hostel concept.

    Perfect place to stay in Taipei”

    This place is perfect. First, the staff are all very, very nice. Made friends with a few of them namely Adam and Richard who were both very accommodating. Secondly, the location is very good as it is near the metro. Facilities are spotlessly clean. Lots of bathroom stalls, hair dryers, and cute curtains with cat design. In all of my travels, this is the best hostel I’ve stayed at.

    perfect spot but you cannot enter by yourself”

    its a bit crowded and more or less a hotspot with a perfect spot in teipeh. but the entrance policy is not recommendable at all. as you are in a house and use the house elevator the concierge has to call someone from floor 4. you always have to wait for that person to come down pick you up. sometimes takes ten minutes. you always feel akward.

    Many hostel around Taipei station I have stayed b4, pillow, angel etc. I like this because It’s quiet and hostel give what your request for. I hv back injury and can’t stay in upper deck n they offer me a lower deck n provide a deck far from entrance for what I requested. These small request matters to me, I love it. Again, angel hostel is the worst! Don’t ever visit again

    Very clean, cosy, staff were helpful, spacious. Value for money!”

    Everything was good, minor drawback is that hostel is a little difficult to locate, and it's a little time consuming to go up. It's inside a building and you cant go up by yourself. The guard at the 1st floor will need to call someone from the hostel to fetch you from the ground floor everytime you go up.

    Good value for money”

    The place is walking distance to Zhongshan Station MRT. You can also walk Taipei main station for the airport train express. The hostel offers included breakfast of ham and egg sandwich with seasonal fruits and a hot orccold drink. The reception is also cozy where you can dine or chat with friends, watch tv while surfing the web. As per the toilet and shower, it’s shared but there are enough shower and toilet rooms. You can also wash and dry your clothes with a fee; towel is also with a fee of 30NTD with a 50NTD deposit. It is a good value for money though you there is a need for air freshener in the rooms. If ever you come early or leave late for check-out, you can leave your luggages in the reception area while you can go tour aorund taiwan. Thank you strabox hostel.

    Average hostel for a quick stay”

    Value for money. Not as expensive as other hostels but I have stayed in other hostels which are better. This has all the basic amenities but lacks the vibe. WiFi is free but didn't try it. Free breakfast consists of coffee/tea and egg sandwich. Whenever you go up to the 4th floor where this hostel is situated, you need someone to pick you up at the lobby. At first it felt too much of a hassle but then you will get used to it. Upon booking, I requested for a lower bed and it was confirmed. But upon check-in, the staff gave us the higher bed. Good thing it was rectified immediately because the lower bunk was still unoccupied.
