Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The hostel is located not far from Taipei main station which means it's very convenient in terms of transpiration and accessibility. It's right next to a busy street though. This means the noise is very noticeable but ear plug helps a lot. I love the architecture of the building which has a very interesting flavor of the old style building. The renovation and the design of the place is very thoughtful and considerate. The shared toilet and shower room is spotless clean. It's so clean i feel i can walk around with bare foot like i was at home. The breakfast portion is a bit small but it does not bother me.

Clean hostel, stylisch breakfast room but not so comfotable for the legs. Coffee could be better! If room would have window it would be much better. Staff is friendly and location is good in walking distance to metro.

Very expensive and not for claustrophobic. The room was dirty and the smell was unsupportable! Run away!! You can find much better in Taipei for the same price. I really don't recommend this place ...

Great Hostel. Already have been there at the beginning of my stay in Taiwan. Close to the Taipei Main Station. From there you can explore the city very easily. Very clean and friendly staff. Booked a twin room and it has been superb.

The hostel is very close to Taipei Station so you can Take the subway, busses, or trains anywhere around the city or around the island. I was extremely satisfied with the accommodations as well. There were plenty of options for breakfast each morning, so I got to try something new each day!
