Well located near to the main station. We stayed on the fifth floor - not too bad the first time you go up the stairs but gets a bit annoying going up and down as the stairs are quite narrow - there is no lift. Also no bathroom on the fifth floor, so have to go up and down the... More

Dear friend, Thanks for your feedback : ) - We have posted that there's no elevator in the building on our official website, booking channel, and the confirmation email as well. Also remind our guests take this into consideration when packing luggage. Our staff will always help the guests who are with big luggages, if they ask for help. -... More

By email, I told the hostel I would be arriving in Taipei at approximately 6am and they told me their staff hours begin at 9:30am. They recommended going to have breakfast or something until then and then having my luggage stored at the hostel until check in time. I opted to store my bag in a locker at the train... More

Thus, on that day our staff also followed this rule and let you... More

Hostel is very good with a great location ! Super clean, both bedroom and toilet, and does really value for money ! The only thing is that is not a sociable hostel, so i would't recommend for solo travelers. Staff is OK and friendly

The hostel is just beside taipei main station. Its very convenient, 7-11 and mc donald are within 2 minutes by foot. The staffs are friendly and the cleanliness is great. The only complain is the hostel doesn't have an elevator. Thus, you need to carry your luggage using staircase. Besides, you may expect some noise inside the room while people... More

This is an excellent hostel. It is located right next to bus, train, high speed rail. And there is a trendy mall across the street. The rooms are clean. Staff members are friendly and very helpful. We had a great time in Taipei. I strongly recommend this hostel to everyone.

Stylish and spotless, with many thoughtful touches. The staff are really sweet and helpful. One major con if you are staying in a single room: The single private rooms are all on the 5th floor. It’s a drag to have to climb that many stairs, especially with luggage. Also, you need to go down a floor to shower or use... More
