    The location was great. Staff were really nice and helpful (especially Faith who was so lovely, welcoming and gave great recommendations - thank you Faith 😊). The shower drains in the B block clogged up and didn’t drain while showering but apart from that its a good hostel. Would recommend.

    Lovely atmosphere and great dorms, almost giving you your own room around your bed. WiFi was a bit spotty, but otherwise the place was great! Nice common room too, and incredibly nice staff. Location is decent: close to a MRT station and Ximending, but there immediate surroundings aren't too exciting.

    Full of bedbugs”

    I swear for being a solo traveler for a long time and frequent hostel dweller I am truly disappointed in this place. I'm not one to leave very rude comments on places and try to see other things that is somewhat memorable on places I've been but nothing could save this hostel. You need to be the one to put your own bed sheet and cover. The blanket (more likely sheet cover) is too thin and can barely cover you from cold. Full of bedbugs!!!! I still have red spots on me as of this writing after 5 days from staying on this place. It's so awful and disgusting. I can't even wear shorts now because of these red spots on me from being bitten by bugs from this awful hostel. Wish there's something I can do about this. You may be a budget hotel but please, at least keep the beds clean and bed bugs free!!!!

    Rude staff ”

    Stay overall good. Thin mattress and not so comfortable. Bed curtain. No toilet paper in the toilets, just outside is one roll so you need to grab some before you go inside.. Not enough toilets and showers in block B. One shower out of service and one leaking leaving you one for 4 dorms full of people. Staff comes in room to start cleaning well before check out time. You can leave your bag after check out but when you come back to collect it you can just take it and leave. Don't even think of using the toilet or washing your hands. They won't let you! You can pee yourself but they just don't care.

    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.

    Thank you for all the feedback and high rates. We will do our best to improve the inconvenience you mentioned. Hoping you can come back and see a better Duckstal!

    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!

    It's a comfy and cozy place for backpacker traveler, the location also very convenient, since it was located near MRT station. The room was clean and comfort, they provide safe locker with electric lock, so you can put your personal belongings safely there. The receptionist was good and friendly.

    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.
