    The capsule itself was impressive, with the blue lights and the TV screen, offering a wide selection of channels to see with a headphone. The capsules are quite sturdy, but definitely not sound proof. Not recommended for light sleepers

    A hostel in a capsule ”
    If you have a budget for your stay in Taipei, hostel or air bnb might be your option. But often I need a personal space to rest, meaning with no random stranger coming to you to chat up. This capsule accommodation is suitable for solo traveler like me. It is located in Ximending, Taipei (near movie street). But check in have to be at another building.. I was there early around 7.30am and the recept is locked. Is good to take note of the contact and call them. The staff gave me a passcode to leave my baggage inside the lobby first and come back after 8.30 to check in. Staff brought me to another building across one street down. The hostel is at level 3 and is armed with security passcode, and the room of my capsule is armed with another set of passcode. To me it is safe, as it prevents other travelers to enter your room. There are 4 - 6 capsules in a room, stack up two in a block. Mine is on the floor level, which is easier for me to get in and out. The capsule is also secured with a door card to lock and activate the capsule power and AC. The room is big enough for my cabin baggage, my backpack and myself. There are two USB charging points, mirror, small tv with a headphone for volume, two small hooks to hang your clothes or bag. The aircon temperature is moderate. It is comfortable to sleep and relax. But if you have fellow roommates that comes in and out of the capsule pulling the door, it can be very annoying as the capsule is not soundproof. Therefore some very loud snoring can be heard too. The common bathroom is clean except for the water temperature is pretty unpredictable. The price for this capsule is really affordable but I hope there can be a better methods of storing your luggage in a more secure manners. Although men and women room are different, but they still use the common bathroom. It will be better to separate as it might be uncomfortable to see some men watching the female guests coming out of the shower room.

    Fun for a short stay!”
    I traveled with my aunt for a one night stay and we had an upper+lower capsule/bed. The capsule beds are good for privacy but, it does not block out noises well, even when you enclose yourself inside it. You can hear the showers even from inside the capsule. So, it is fun for a short stay and for the experience! The shared spaces (toilet, shower stalls, kitchen space/dining+living room) were clean when we arrived. I am not sure if there is daily housekeeping because by the next morning the kitchen trash can was full to the brim. When I used the shower that night there were hair in the drain. There were a small group of young females chatting loudly and entering/leaving multiple times that night. So, the experiences varies because it really depends on who your other fellow housemates are when you stay. The location is great because it is a short distance from Xi-Men Walker. The only annoying bit is the check-in location is a (long) block and a half away from the actual living space. We walked a lot the entire day and were lugging/hauling stuff so, we were tired from having to walk in search of the check-in location and then having an employee walking us towards where we just came from to show us how to access the rooms and etc.

    Disappointed”
    The staff were friendly, the place is generally quite clean and the location is convenient (10 min walk to Ximen MRT). However, there are lots of room for improvement. The dormitory is located on another block of building and the lobby and lift seemed run down. The ventilator in my capsule had malfunctioned and it was a bit stuffy inside so I had to leave the door of my capsule opened all the time. Besides, the safe box inside the capsule also was not working. However, I'm very disappointed with the dishonesty of the owner. He gave me a so-called "HSR 25% discount card" and I found out that it was fake when I presented it to the HSR personnel at the Taipei Main Station. Hence, I will not return to this hostel ever again..

Es gibt morgens kostenlos Kaffee und kleine Snacks. Man fühlt sich wie zuhause. Es ist auch eine Waschmaschine vorhanden. Vor allem ist alles sehr sauber.

    安いので利用しました。”
    一人旅で泊まるだけなので安いので利用した。地下鉄駅からは、10分くらい、近くにコンビニは沢山ある。レセプションはチェックインが重なる時間にはいるが、それ以外の時間にはいない。だれもいない時間にチェックインする時はデスクの右側にある非常電話を使い、係員を呼び出す必要がある。(最初はこのシステムにビックリした。) チェックアウトの時もレセプションには誰もいなかった。トイレに行くときや部屋に入るときはドアロックを暗証番号で解除する必要があるので、暗証番号のカードは持ち歩かなければいけない。レセプションに誰もいないので助けてくれない。カプセルですが、プラスチックが軋む音がギシギシして五月蠅い。
