This is a wonderful and homely hostel tucked away in Taipei. Super clean and comfortable, it's easy to see why so many people choose to stay there for a long time. Location is in a quieter part of the city with the night market nearby, easy access to metro. It was a wonderful place to start and finish our time...

Everything about this hostel is amazing. It has a friendly, relaxed vibe. The manager, Dave, is so warm and helpful, and I felt instantly welcome at this home away from home. There's a great common space and, as a solo traveler, it's very easy to meet people and make friends. On top of that, the value is great--the price is...

Tucked a stone's throw away from Songshan Station (Line 3), our stay here was a pleasant one. The manager Dave, immediately introduced himself and made it his mission to accommodate us as much as possible from room comfort, accessibility and just general know-how for really amazing places to eat and things to do. This translated to his staff as well....

As my 4th or 5th time here, this place feels almost like home, especially with the group of long term tenants. Good vibes, spacious communal area, and served by 2 MRT lines and train. There's a good reason I keep coming back here and you should definitely give this place a shot too.

I could live here... It's very well equipped and very social with the space to be alone if you wish. The staff are wonderful, had great conversations and a fun night out. Love the lounge area, gives me that feeling of home comforts after travelling Asia for many months.

Stayed there for one week. Had an awesome time staying at this place, met a lot of great people there. And a special thanks to Pat for making sure my laundry was done before I left. Pat was just super, and made the stay so much better.
