Best to stay in Taipei”

This hostel is highly recommended if you want to stay in Ximending area. Walking distance to shops, Ximen MRT station, and very near to Taipei Main Station and West bus station (express bus going to Keelung, Taoyuan Airport). The place is very clean, and got cute decorations :) The pantry, common shower area and toilet are well maintained. The hostel is a good place to sleep since it's very quiet and relaxing. This is the third place we saw/stayed in Taipei and so far, the best one. We stayed in one of the backpackers room, simple yet beautiful. The staff was also accommodating. Next time I visit Taipei, I will surely stay here again. The price is not so expensive and the stay is worth it.

Good value for money”

Good location, clean and comfy

A very clean and comfy hostel with great design. We stayed in the triple room. There were 2 doors with different passwords for room access, which is a good security feature. Though staying at the second floor, we could easily access to the hostel-C located at the third floor which had a common room, water dispenser and laundry facilities. However, it would be better if a curtain could be added to separate the shower and the toilet. The room may be quite noisy with the windows opened, but once the windows are closed, we could sleep soundly. Overall, a nice place to stay in ximending. Will consider staying here again if I go to Taipei again.

cozy and charming”

Plus point Number 1: Easy access. Location is everything. Hostel is around 2 minutes walk to the Ximending Night Market and less than 10-minute stroll to Ximen Station. Lots of food stalls across the street.. Plus point Number 2: Early check in. We arrived at 9am and were told that check in time is still at 1PM but the front desk made us sit and wait and 3 minutes later, we were already being led to our room. Plus point Number 3: Free upgrade!! Yey!! Booked a twin room but assigned to a room for quad sharing. The room is in 3rd floor, there's no lift but no one's complaining. Why? The room is big, so cozy and charming with its mint colors. The balcony is another bonus.

great hostel!”

The place is so cute and we have been upgraded to a larger room good for 4 people eventhough there’s only two of us. And the thing we liked the most is that it is very near to Ximending Night Market. Also, there’s a great breakfast place just right across the hostel and they open as early as 5AM to feed your hunger while the rest of Ximending is still asleep. The staff were fast to reply to emails whenever we have questions about checking in. Highly recommended!

WORTH IT!!!”

PROS: -3 min walk to Ximending Night Market -near mrt station -near main tourist landmarks -accessible 24 hr convenience store/food establishments -very accomodating:our flight got delayed multiple times and we dont have place to stay and freshen up (they allowed us to take shower with just a minimum fee) and use the public lounge -free coffee/tea/nuts/creamer at the pantry -very accommodating staff WANDA & NINI!!!Wanda even guide us on the next bldg to take the shower. CONS: -old building -no elevator -front desk is not 24 hrs. -no telecom -no housekeeping (everything is self service) we even get the garbage bag at the pantry and manage our own clutter. But, we still enjoyed the stay because everything is within reach and accessible. Will definitely book this place

Friendly staff and fast check in ”

Stayed here during a transit. Right opposite 7 eleven and family mart which is convenient. Abit of walk to the train station, near a breakfast place where they sell yummy buns and soya milk. The place is quite noisy with streets, cars and construction. Room is quite bright as there is only blinds with no curtain. Street lights are bright at night and you can hear street noises downstairs. Room is clean, they provide basic amenities and small pcs of towel. Cool air conditioning and comfortable bed. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Price in Taipei is on the higher side, can't complain much but its quite expensive for a hostel in Asia.

Amazing stay but”

We checked in at 2 am, the reception was closed so we had to self check in. They gave us the wrong map! Turns out that they had 2 buildings, we were trying to access the one they gave us for almost an hour at 2am! We were already so tired and sleepy. So we tried to google and turns out they had two building. So after an exhausting hour of trying to open the gate on building A, we went to Building C, some blocks away. THE ROOM ASSIGNED TO US WAS OPEN WITH TRASH AND DIRT. The bed was undone. but it didn't smell funky or what. We were so tired that we just slept and complained through email, even sent them some photos. That morning we went to their reception, they apologized and it was ok since their linen smells nice and the cr, and facilities were amazing. They said to just send them a message if we want our rooms cleaned when we go out. And so I did messaged them the next day while we were on tour, they replied ok too. But when we went back in the evening, THEY DIDN'T.

Please enforce hostel rules when guests check in & put signs to remind them in all areas.”

I stayed in one of the 4 capsules room in the larger building 3/F. TV in capsule unit volume is weak even I turned it to loudest volume. People throw tooth brush in the bathroom & sink area after used. Some guests did not turn off air conditioning & fan when they are not in the room. Microwave is kind of dirty. We have cigarette smoke smell in the common area the first 2 days. Microwave is kind of dirty. It would be nice if all the problems could be solved. How to educate guest is also important for future business. Staffs are kind and clean the place everyday. Location is pretty good and convenient for shopping. Many restaurants around & not far from metro. I would recommend this hostel for other guests.

In the heart of Ximen area I stayed here in a capsule room with 3 others for 5 nights (the first 2 nights i was alone in the room). It was really a great experience. Sleeping in a capsule is my new favorite. They even have a TV in it. Everything was very clean. Showers were also good and clean. They provide towels in a box to use. Only problem was that towels were not enough for all the people on the weekend, but I always have my own one anyway.
