We stayed here @Fun Taipei Backpackers for a week just recently! Found the place from HostelWorld and my friends and I love it! Mostly because the location is so conveniently near to Jiantan MRT and ShihLin Night Market! Price-wise is pretty alright, about 200NTD/RM 50++ per person. Our room has 2 mattresses and even a sofa bed where we took...

It may be noisy or rowdy when you go outside but it's definitely peaceful inside the hostel and the rooms are clean. However, there are no group activities, like walking tours or pub crawls. The front desk is usually left unmanned but it's really great that they wait for you, else, they provide instructions on how to find the hostel...

So whenever the guest feels hungry or want to do some shopping, the excellent marketplace is just below the hostel. I am also impressed with the distance from the metro station, which is...

Cozy little apartment to stay in. Conveniently, each bunk bed has a privacy screen to pull down and a little shelf to store some things on. There is a simple breakfast available (bread/toast, jam, peanut butter, chocolate spread, fresh fruit, and tea/cocoa). Everything is very clean, the wifi is fast, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The location...

Second time I have been here and I absolutely love it as it feels like I am really living in a flat and am part of Taipei rather than a tourist. It has everything I need like a TV, DVD player , fridge , private bathroom and even a reading window seat! And what a location!
