Very clean hostel! Also, the environment of the hostel is super warm and inviting. Everyone, staff and guests, are friendly. I originally thought staying in a 16-mixed room would be cramped, but each guest is allowed a comfy bed with a curtain if you want privacy. Love the setup! I also loved the complimentary breakfast of toast and tea. Perfect for a light breakfast.

had a great time at this hostel. wilbur and lexi are great, its location is very central. just a few mrt stops away from most locations in the city. the beds i have mixed feelings about. they are super soft, but you can easily feel the springs. i still liked it enough to come back for another 2 nights at the end of my trip.

Perfect location, super clean washroom, I lived in 16 beds dorm, and the bed was very comfortable. Kitchen is nice and they provided free self-served breakfast in kitchen. Banana cake was great and I also love the fresh banana they always provide. Staffs are nice and helpful.

Loved Banana Hostel. It's central, around the corner from the MTR and Da Ting Fung (an amazing place for chinese buns), and also a street of cute shops and eateries. Also within walking distance of a night market. I stayed in a mixed dorm room and the bed space was spacious and the showers and toilets were clean. It was a nice place to come back to at the end of a long day.

위치는 좋음, 트윈방엔 창문없고 캐리어 두개 놓으면 꽉참. 욕실과 화장실, 세면실이 붙어있고 좁아서 매우 불편함...

Amazing place to stay! Don't worry about staying in the 16-bed dorm because the beds are huge and have a privacy curtain. The staff is amazing as well!, very helpful and friendly. Stay in this Hostel if you are going to Taipei!

Such a cool place to stay!! Banana hostel feels very homey and the staff is very present and engaged. The place itself is spotless, spacious, and the kitchen/outdoor patio is lovely (not to mention the fresh banana bread made daily for breakfast!) The metro stop is 30seconds away and everything is super accessible from that neighborhood. Overall great experience, looking forward to going back on my next visit to Taipei! BANANA LOVERS UNITE

홍대카페를 연상시키는 인테리어였어요~ 깔끔하고 꽤나 인상깊었고 위치도 mrt에서 5분내로 있어서 다니기 편했습니다. 다만..2층침대는 너무 불편했어요. 2층 침대를 이렇게 높게만들다니ㅜㅠㅠ원래2층 좋아하는데2층올라간거 후회했어욬ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

Didn't have the best start to my trip in Taipei but the staff really helped me out with everything! From ringing the hospital to arranging appointments, I really appreciated what they did and definitely recommend this place. They are all so friendly and helpful. Thanks for everything.

Banana Hostel is a vibrant and wonderful place to stay. It is not directly in the city but 2 minutes from Dongmen Metro station which means that it is in an ideal location to get around and see all the sights of Taipei. The staff in the hostel are very friendly. The décor and style of the hostel has a quirky edge which makes its a comfortable place to stay. The security is good and the breakfast and kitchen facilities are perfect and the hostel is very clean.

Nice and cosy hostel, love the bunk beds in the big dorm

We stayed in a double room where the comfy bed is high under the ceiling and you can sit underneath it. people taller than 180cm need to be careful... you need to know that the double rooms face to a big street which is noisy during the day and even some times in the night, but okay with earplugs. Close to the MRT, 3 stations away from main train station. Joy and her team are really good hosts, providing clear instructions, lots of bananas and fun. A simple DIY breakfast is served in 3rd floor.
