Great Budget and Value for Money Stay”

Friendly and helpful staff, cleanliness and location

I stayed at the Here There Hostel on Saturday, 2 May, 2015. I was looking for a good cheap hostel, centrally located for one night stay before I did the Taipei 101 Run Up. I found exactly what I was looking for with this property. I had a hassle free booking through Agoda, where I got an excellent rate. I was booked into a 16 bed dorm, but was allocated a bed in a 6 bed dorm room, which suited me perfectly. The property is centrally located in the busy Ximen area of Taipei, although a busy area, the rooms are situated high up and are quiet. No more than a 5 minute walk from the Metro Station. Friendly, helpful staff who could assist in English, with good local knowledge. Very clean rooms and communal areas. Had warm water in the shower and very little noise in the room, with black out curtains for a good nights rest before a good run the next morning up the Taipei 101. Excellent value for money. Close to many restaurants and shops in the area. Free fast WIFI in the rooms. Bring your own towel and toiletries or you can rent and buy from the reception. I rated the food/dining as a 3 but I did not eat anything from the hotel. I would happily return to this property.

Very private 'rooms' for a hostel”

Loved this hostel, the beds are capsule-like so there is plenty of privacy, but there is also a big lounge area if you want to socialize. Everything was cleaned regularly, and they had a water dispenser for both cold and hot water. Lounge had books about the area and what's happening. On a full night, our room had maybe 16 people, and access to 3 showers and 3 toilets. Front desk workers are always nice, and speak great English. Ximen isn't my favorite area of Taipei, but it has pretty convenient access to anywhere else you want to go through the MRT, which is a 2 minute walk from the hostel. As one of the cheapest hostels in Taipei, this place is a great deal. Would stay again.

I really enjoyed my stay in Ximen Corner Hostel. The place was nice and neat. Receptionist is very accommodating and amenities (play room, tv etc.) were all available during my stay there and what I enjoyed the most is it is within Ximending Night w/c made it very accessible to different places and stores and you can tour around the nearby places at Night. Will definitely be back! :)

Location, Convenience, Staff”

Ximen Corner Hostel is a stone's throw away from Ximen station. It's affordable and convenient. The only downside is how a lot of travellers that are looking for transient stay (before leaving for the airport usually) end up staying here - hence, early morning alarm clocks. I booked a bedspace and am a light sleeper, so it was a bit bothersome. Nonetheless, it's really up to you. They sell earplugs - that might help. The space is generally clean and not too noisy considering it's in the middle of the night market. They have a helpful staff, nice lounge, comfy bed, strong showers, a washing machine and dryer, an arcade, hairdryers, an elevator. No bidet but plenty of restrooms. Nearby go-to establishments: Ximen Red House, Longshan Temple, Mala Hotpot, Ay Chung (noodles), graffiti park. Must also visit: Jiufen/Yehliu/Shiufen (out-of-town tour), Hua Shan Creative Cultural Arts Park, Museum of Contemporary Arts, Chiang Kai Shek.

Location, staff and facilities ”

Booked and stayed both on their bunk and private room double. Staff is very friendly and willing to help. I even called them to check out the exact location before entering my flight. Upon arrival check in process was fast like they have prepare and know who you are and what room to direct to. They even go extra mile to talk to you make sure your stay is pleasant, and recommending eatery and place of interest nearby. Facilities is standard but sufficient for travellers like microwave, water dispencer, etc Location is super great as its located 2mins walk from ximen mrt exit 6, just take escalator up and you will direct seeing watson which is 60 meters away and hotel just next to watson. Its also convieniently located in middle of ximending pedestrian area which allow you to go down and walking or buy supper. Even its in middle of crowd, hotel is safe from noise because is located in 4th floor, i experience no noise at all. Hotel also able to help arranging transport to airport with very min cost at 300ntd, i do took their transport and get a private car, ride was smooth with 45mins to tao yuan. Check with the staff of the airport arrangement prior check in so they can check and book that for you. Car to taoyuan is vendor not belong to hotel 7eleven is located just 2 shop away from hotel Eartery is all along the alley and ximending area. Con is only if stay for more than 4 days in private room you will need to inform for cleaning as the cleaner are not auto cleaning your room everyday although they will help you on throwing away rubbish in your toilet rubbish bin Overall its a very pleasant stay in this hotel and will def coming back to stay in taiwan.

Great value for money”

We absolutely loved our stay over the weekend during my birthday celebration in Taipei. We checked in quite late ( 3am ) so we didn't fully appreciate the location when we arrived. But the moment we started our day for touring around, we were so surprised how well located this place is. It's right in the middle of the busy Ximending area but it's located on the 4th floor so you won't hear the noisy and buzzing activities below. The XIMEN blue MRT line is just a 2 minute walk away, and the grocery, Carrefour is just a 10 min walk away. The staff was super helpful and friendly, and the lounge was so convenient for us since our flight was at 11PM. Since we checked out at 10am, we went shopping, went around the whole day and then we fixed our things in the lounge and was even able to freshen up and take a shower. I think the only inconvenience for us was the walk from the breakfast station to the lounge so we can sit down and eat. But everything else was lovely. Would definitely recommend this place if you want to explore Taipei!

toilet smells but all other things are ok. fair for the price”

our previous hotel check out time is 11am, and with our flight being 4Am next day, we just just needed a place to stay for a few hours to rest and have shower before going to the airport. looked for a cheap place nearby and saw ximen corner hostel. this is located near chengdu road on the 4th floor of building. location is very near the MRT exit 6, with nearby 7/11 and ximen shopping district. lots of food and shops nearby. as for the room, we booked for 2 double beds in a mixed 4-bed dorm room. one is located on the lower part, and the other is on the upper bunk. bed is quite big, with charger sockets and light inside. there's a curtain for privacy and aircon is cold. only thing i didn't like is the toilet smells. nothing that a deodorizer can't fix though, so i hope the hotels spends more on this. water pressure is strong in the shower. no toiletries provided so bring your own.

near to ximen MRT from exit 6. I stay 3 night in ximen corner hostel for couple mix room from Thursday, Friday and Saturday . It's good only when you stay during weekdays because fewer people. The mix couple available for 8 person in a room with 4 double bed that need share same toilet and aircon. Only us in that mix couple room during Thursday and Friday . No cleaner clean the toilet also after we stay for 2 nights. There are 2 couple move in during Saturday. So 6 person need to share the same toilet. Another couple stay on upper bed on Sat. Because i stay in the bottom bed. It's super noisy and annoying when they sleep on upper bed because there are a lot of sound when they are moving. Wifi become slow during weekend . Bed also not a good quality bed. Breakfast provided with bread, package coffee and tea. No toiletries and towel provided in the hostel. You need to bring your own. Only good for short stay Put my luggage in hostel last day for temporary without charges .

Excellent location!”

Ximen Corner Hostel - great location, right at the heart of Ximending, just 1 minute walk from Ximen Station Exit 4. Love the theme and design of the hostel. The bed, pillow and quilt were very comfortable. There were also a curtain available for each bunk bed, giving some degree of privacy. Breakfast are toasts and coffee. Staff are friendly and very helpful! There are room for improvement. I'm not a big fan of the toilet. I could hear businesses of others, which is unacceptable. I didn't like the shower room in dorm C - the opaque wall did not work for me.

I chose the Ximen Corner after an actual Taiwanese friend suggested it. And it was exactly what I was looking for! 100% recommendable, great location in a very charming and touristic area of the city surrounded by many restaurants and shops. Clean rooms with nice and intimate beds. Best thing were its common areas where one can relax and make new friends with the other guests, just like me and my friends did! Definitely worth its price!

Called before arrived in Taipei to ask for direction as I will be arriving in wee hour and their staff very assisting and directing the way, room is fine, lighting a bit dull but acceptable they even have mini fridge for usage. Location is super super great as its only 1-2 mins away from exit 6 xi men, when you go up from mrt you will see watson and hotel just in alley right next to watson. Hotel located in crowded shop area pedestrian walk in ximending but dont worry for noise disturbance as hotel is isolated enough on that. Staff were friendliest reception i ever met, they even recomended and talk to you to make sure your stay is pleasant. 7 eleven just 2 shops away from hotel. Hotel can also help you yo arrange for airport transfer if needed. Overall its a pleAsant stay. Recommended to everyone who looking for affordable yet good location to stay

It is located at an small alley beside Center of ximending, so it is convenient but still quiet at night. It is very spacious and private as hostel dormitory standard. One room has 6 seperate spaces with a big bed and with bathroom inside the room. Beds and bathroom are very clean. Clean and good location at this price, that's all you can ask as a backpacker.

Great hostel location”

Location, bed, a/c

Its located in the heart of Ximending, the hostel is on the 4th floor which occupies the entire floor. Pretty cool concept (probably nothing new by now) - they have a few rooms which houses 6 ~ 12 pax of single + double bed with attached bathroom and individual locker each which was just nice to fit my hand carry luggage . Even when the room was fully occupied (12pax) there was still more than enough space to move about, probably because half the travelers only returned after midnight. The only thing that wasn't great is since the A/C is on 24/7 and all the windows can't open, there is no fresh air circulating the place.. Can you imagine entire day out and you're back in the room, sweaty clothes and wet towels after shower etc, now x12 of that and imagine the smell of the room! Kinda funky, musky, damp smell..

Location, Room and Service

This hotel is centrally located in ximen area, less than 5 minutes walking once you exit the metro station. easy to locate and you can always cut short by entering 7-11 and exit the other door. The service was OK, the people in front were very helpful and they speak good English, met new guys from all over the world here. Book a double bed dorm even if you travel alone, the price is not that far from the single ones, the bed was cozy and huge. you can put your things on the bed.
