Great value for money.”

The place is clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. Very near to Longshan Temple Mrt station.

Our stay at Duckstay Hostel was good. The place was clean and the staff were friendly. It's very near the Longshan Temple MRT station. So if anyone is taking the mrt there, stop at Longshan Temple station instead of Ximen (found out the hard way). Bring your own towel and toiletries. They do provide soap and shampoo but, that's about all they give. Bring toilet paper with you cos they paper is outside of the cubicle. They don't have individual paper dispensers in the toilet cubicles. Would definately stay again.

Excellent location, great value for money ”

This hostel is very cheap for Taiwan, especially given how modern it is and how close it is to Ximen. The staff were nice and the place was clean. We stayed in a dorm room which had nice big lockers, good curtains on the beds and individual plug sockets. The downsides were that the rooms were very cramped, with little space to manoeuvre and the showers are downstairs from the dorms which made the walk there quite awkward.

The hotel is easy to find and only takes 5 minutes to walk to the nearest MRT. Staff speaks english very well, and is really friendly and supportive. They tried their best in helping me finding the hostel and checking-in at night. The bed is quite small, but clean and private and the locker is really big. Facility is very good with separate bathroom area, toilet area and there is even a really big common room for everyone to gather at night. Cannot complain anything.

Good for price”

staff, location and price

The location of the hostel is at longshan temple MRT which is very near the temple to visit or 10 minutes by walk to the ximending pedestrian area. Also, there are 2 grocery shops near the hostel (Carrefour and Wellcome) and also a 7 eleven and a Family Mart. The staff is great, they're always here to answer our questions and we even went to have lunch twice with one of the staff members! They're always trying to improve the hostel so this was something I liked. The beds are spacious and clean and the common area is HUGE! Only downside for me is that there isn't a lot of foreigners (but they're trying to improve that aspect) and the showers are far from your room, you have to pass the lobby to get to the showers. This hostel is great!

The hostel is very clean and comfortable. The security measures here very strong as we need to use a security card to enter each respective area. The staff here also helpful and friendly. They help me to keep my lost purse too. Only one point to critic is the locker for double bed is the same as single bed. It is too small for travellers with big luggage.

Will not come back again”

I was having a 2 week backpacking vacation in taiwan, stayed in 4 awesome hostel across the island before landing into Duckstay just for a night stay before flying back. And regretted that i didnt go back to the one i stayed before because i was looking for a different environment. Somehow, the risk wasn't worth taking. Here's why: -shared toilet (male and female) shares one toilet roll. Did not replenish in the morning after it ran out. - bathroom is at different level. Need to go 1 level up, pass by the front desk lobby and eventually reaching the bathroom as well as the washing machine. - no free coffee or tea like most hostels do - no telco signal at the underground common area. Wifi strength was inconsistent. - staffs were meh - walls are thin. Can hear noises from the outside - the people here are loud And the plus point: + near to Longshan mrt and bus stop to airport

Friendly staff but facing facilities problems”

Staff here all are very friendly ,they will fulfilled your request willingly and they are very passionate. It is also located in strategy place which just 5 minutes from longshan temple. But then if you're carrying very heavy luggage you will have to climb a long staircase to exit the mrt station. Another inconvenience will be the upper wardrobe, if you're taking upper side of the bunk bed, you might cannot hang your shirt in the wardrobe as it is too high. One more inconvenience will be the bathroom and washroom are separated. Bathroom will be downstair it is not in the same floor. By the way, the soundproof system is not really good over there. If you're staying in room 2, most probably you will be awaked by the door sound. So far two nights I stayed there I was awaked by the door sound and people noise.

Great location walking distance to Ximending, clean and comfortable beddings, modern design

The stay was alright, location was superb and easy to find, big lockers for luggage with key card lock--would def recommend upgrading to a double bed if the price isnt that much of a difference-- the bigger bed is def worth it! Showers had really weak water pressure though and a pool of water would accumulate at your feet. Also the individual toilet rooms had no toilet paper stocked in it--they have paper towels right next to the door though. Also felt really hot in the room at times.. I don't know how they decide the AC temperature though. Another gripe was they wouldn't let me check in early when I arrived around 10AM because my bed was not ready which I was totally OK with.. only to find out later that in my room, there were only two other girls who had been there for several days who told me that they've had the room to themselves. so WHY couldn't I check-in early? Receptionist also made a mistake and gave me a single bed when I had reserved a double bed.. it was easily corrected by just changing the key but I'm still a little bit peeved because I had also sent a special request message through Agoda about early check-in but did not receive a response about it.
