Best value for money in Taipei”
Travelled around Taiwan for three weeks and LivePal is undoubtedly the best value for money hostel. Good location - MRT/TRA, Wufenpu clothes market, Raohe night market and eateries. Shampoo, bodywash and handsoap is provided in bathing areas. Free hot/cold water, tea/coffee available in A/C kitchen/common area. Rooms are of mixed variety - bunks, capsules, not all rooms have lockers so be sure to book/request one with lockers. Manager was very nice in upgrading me to room with locker when requested.
Basic and clean”
Near Songshan station and Raohe night market. Each dorm bed has its own tv, light and foldable desk. They also have a locker to keep your bag while you're out. They also provide slippers so outside shoes are not used inside the room. There's only 3 shower and 3 toilet (per floor?) and towel is not provided (but not really an issue if you wake up early). All in all, a good and affordable place to sleep at while in Taipei.
Close to a lot of cool places”
The bed was pretty uncomfortable but everything else was great! 5 minute walk to Rahoe Night Market and the Wenhu Shopping District. Clean bathrooms and rooms. Something weird about the showers, though: the shower heads are mounted on the wall but only at like chest level.
The hostel does well with accommodating late arrivals - I arrived at around 11pm and I had an envelope waiting for me with all I needed. Toilets / showers are a bit messy but ok. The shared space on level 1 has chairs to sit on and a basic kitchen. Good location, very close to Songshan station.
Great location and price for solo traveller. Suitable for those without obsessive cleaning disorder.”
Value for money, and great location as it is very near wufenpu and raohe night market. The room is very small. Difficult to move around if someone else is packing their luggage. As there were many people staying at the hostel, toilets and showers were used very frequently by other travelers. Ventilation was not working very well... There is definitely a need to improve on the cleanliness of not only the washrooms but also the dorm rooms.
Taipei Livepal Hostel is a Bait-n-Switch”
Taipei Livepal Hostel will list as the lowest fare hostel when you search. But when you check-in, they hike fare on you and ask you to resolve it with the website where you booked your stay. There are cockroaches crawling around the water fountain, cups and dishes. I recommend people stay away from this hostel.
If you are a solo traveler (especially female) I really recommended this place. the place near Wufenpu so it's really convenient for women who want to shop for clothes with the cheap price
Staff not helpful. Room has no ventilation and bed is too small. ”
I won’t stay here anymore as the staff are not helpful. Not telling right direction to bus stop which is actually straightforward. And I wanted to book for Starbucks taipei 101 but they dismissed it by saying they cant help calling. I have my Taiwan no yet the male rec. said to me the cafe no is not in use. I wnet to Taipei 101, i was informed no money to call. They should’ve told me that so i can reload. I eventually did thanks to other Taiwanese. I’ve been to many hostels. This one makes me wonder why people think is good. Bed is too small and more importantly has no ventilation. Thus your clothing would get smelly and even the toom is not comfy due to this. Overall, I rather go somewhere else next time.
Nice Hostel, Tiny rooms, thin mattress”
Nice clean hostel Order a second mattress to sleep otherwise it is too hard to sleep Friendly hosts
It's okie to get by. a lil bit old and not very clean, internet is very slow. Not a no go, but there are surely a lot more better hostel choose than this one.
nice place for travel alone”
Nice and clean room, good for privacy. near public transport and night market, no worries about food.
staff is nice and helpful”
you have home feeling when live in this hostel. washroom is very clean and bed is nice!
Very nice place!”
The staff is very friendly and helpful, clean room and good facility. highly recommended!
Very well equipped facility with reasonable price, and very considerate service attitude ”
There is a sprayer in the WC! That's pretty awesome since I seldom see toilet equipped with it as in my original country. Besides, the socket is UK type which is more easily compatible.
Very near to Raohe night market, Clean and friendly staff! Except that I gotten a broken lock for the locker. Other than that, would definitely go back again!
Superb Location with Good Food & Market Around”
The location is very near to Rao He Night Market and Wu Feng Pu (Clothing suppliers market), very good location for solo traveller .
Pros was that the one night stay was inexpensive and clean. However, the cons were that the hostel charged my credit card without my authorization when they stated on the website that they won't, and only needed my credit card information for booking purposes only and there is no need to be concerned as they will not charge for booking purposes. No service (worse than poor) when I arrived, no one was on staff even when I clearly mentioned that I will be arriving late that night. Thus, I distinctly rate it a 1 star for lack of service.
Great location, next to Songshan Station and my favourite night Market, Raohe. Clean and comfortable stay, thanks:)
Cheap and nice”
Staffs were friendly. It was about 230 NTD and clean enough for single man. Very close to the Songshang station and Raohe night market.
Good inhouse rule to protect privacy”
Facilities was overall good, double deck with curtain cover and light, mirror next to bed, and even TV, staying rules were good which get every customer s privacy protected.
