These are my comments: Pros: 1) Good Location: Just a 5-minute walk to Shandao Temple MRT Station, which is one station from Taipei Main Station. 2) Cheap 3) Staff was responsive during booking Cons: 1) Poor Cleanliness: The room was not clean. The bed sheet and sofa were...

My girlfriend and I booked a double room for three nights, including New Years Eve, 7 weeks before our stay. Apparently that was too early, so we were asked to confirm within 4 weeks of arriving. When I emailed our confirmation more than 3 weeks before our stay, the reply was that the room was no longer available! They gave...

Location pro: near to Shandao Temple MRT, one to two minute walk. Location cons: located in a quiet corner which is quite hard to find. The small alley is dark at night. A bit scary and dangerous for girls. Room pro: Considered as cheap in Taipei, we chose the private room with a private bathroom. WIfi is good in the...

The hostel is a short walk to the Shendao Temple MRT, which is one stop away from the main station. A bus to and from the airport stops at the Sheraton hotel, which is also just a few steps from the place. I paid 300 NTD for a night at the mixed dorm, which felt like a private room because...

Got single dorm for very low price. Room was small, but comfy enough and I slept OK. There are shared bathrooms which are not the neatest, but facilities worked well enough.

It's a great deal, 300 NT$ a night and 600NT$ for a key deposit. I stayed in the dorm room and met some fun and interesting people from around the world. It's close to Shandao Temple MRT station and it also has free WIFI. My only complaint is the toilet stunk to high heaven and was always like the Amazon...

If you know how it is like to live in a hostel, you'll survive here. Almost perfect - location, price, facilities, people. Convenient to everywhere as it is some few walk to the MRT and bus stop to and from International Airport. Convenience stores (there are 3) are the friendly neighbors. If you get lucky, you can make friends with...
