Exceptional Location, Service, and Facility”

Our room was completely different from the image, but everything exceeded our expectations. It locates in the center of Ximending walking street, 2 min from the Ximending station and 0 min to any necessities. The room is super clean and spacious for one located on an old street. The staff is really nice and supportive, they lent us umbrellas since the weather was rainy. Really worth the price, recommend everyone to stay!

Nice place for the backpacker”

I chose capsule accommodation. The location is in a lively area, it is very convenient to walk and travel. Overall, it's pretty neat. The owner is nice to communicate with. The sound insulation is poor, but its what the hostels are like, isn’t it? The bathroom and toilet are also quite tidy. The overall environmental cleanliness is the part that impresses me the most.

Stayed 24 nights in December 2022


Great option for solo travelling, as I am out everyday doing something I do not need a big space and so a capsule hotel was a perfect cheap option. I was worried perhaps it will be noisy but everyone is pretty respectful at keeping things quiet by a certain hour. The staff were absolutely lovely (especially the cleaning ladys). Communal space was kept tidy and is useful equipped with washing machine (30twd per load) and a boiling water tap (for hot drinks and cup noodles etc). I would only suggest you bring bug repellent as I got bit a few times by mosquitos but it wasn't something that irritated me too much.
