    beware of room 26


    walking distance to airport express and to taipei main station. entrance is thru commercial stalls during the day and back entrance during the night. tough place to find if you don't properly research the place. stayed three nights. room 26 has awful smell so much that we keep the window open (goodness, it was feb so it wasnt hot and stuffy). hotel is one floor housed inside an old building (which could accounts for the poor sanitation). has simple breakfast consisting of toast and spread, congee, coffee mix, tea bags. self service laundry is available. not cheap and not a very good choice than other nearby properties which are newer.

    Decent place


    This hostel is okay for spending a few nights in Taipei. The rooms are pretty basic but include everything you’d want - light, electric socket, curtain etc. Beds are comfy but very small - not ideal if you’re taller than 5”10. The communal area in the photos is nice and kept very clean, but feels much smaller than the pictures show it to be. Can only fit a few people on the sofa/swing. Location is very close to Taipei Main Station and quite easy to find with Google Maps. Staff are polite and speak enough English to help you out.

    Super comfortable bed!


    Staff were very friendly and helpful, and they provided affordable laundry service. Beds were very comfortable. However, breakfast was average and the hostel was located quite a distance away from the Taipei Main Station.

    Good, but overpriced


    Hostel is good. Location is close to train station, although not in a very lively area - Xiamen is a 10 minute walk. Front desk staff is nice and available 24/7. Dorms are relatively small and no lockable storage facilities available. Beds are comfortable and bunks are sturdy. Individual lights and charging ports are available. Towels cost 20 NTD each. Limited number of bathrooms available, but seemed enough at the time. Internet pretty slow in the rooms, ok in the common areas. Main downside is the price. There area other, better, hostels available nearby for a cheaper price (check Oxygen hostel).
