Very nice hostel, well located near the main station, a lot of nice sightseeing spots and convenient metro stops. The facilities are new and clean. The staff was very friendly.

I always stay at Banana Hostel. They have great beds, sheets and blankets. They're rooms and bathrooms are clean and the place is very peaceful. The staff is welcoming and helpful. Best of all, the location is amazing. It's very close to the train station. In just a few minutes you'll get to ride the red line - which I think is the best line for tourists. It takes you to the tourist places like Shilin night market, Taipei 101, Daan Park, Chiang Kai Shek Memorial. Perfect station for tourists.

Banana Hostel was great! It was really value for money for a private room for 2. The location was great - a short walk to CKS Memorial Hall, and the MRT was accessible to many places in a few stops. Toilets and rooms were clean, the staff were friendly and gave us lots of recommendations for food around the area. The only problems would be that the walls are quite thin, so we really had to watch our volume at night, and there is no elevator access and lots of steps. Would definitely recommend :)

Clean and quiet. The designed of the bunk bed is a little bit high, climbing up and down was scary. I was staying female room, I couldn't find the switch of the light, turned out it is inside the buttom of bed, no one find it so I have to ask the help in the middle of night. Not good design but free bananas for breakfest was awesome.

Hostel Banana is a definitely a place to be in Taipei. Its location is perfect, very central, right next to the metro station and close to one the coolest area of Taipei and not far from a small though convenient night market. The dorm is unusually comfortable and offers a lot of privacy, having single cells with curtains. The entire place is rather small, but very cozy, the cleanliness is also very good, all the rooms are being cleaned every day. Very safe place indeed. Highly recommended!

Great, clean hostel that is simple and easy. The dorm room was set up in a nice way with 16-beds, but each in their own private cubby. Not too much environment in the way of people chatting, but chill.

The hostel has an industrial design where walls / floor decorations are left unfinished. Bananas pictures everywhere. There isn't much of an atmosphere. It is mostly run by foreign students in exchange for temporary accommodation, and I wouldn't say the owner / manager is particularly friendly. This is an OK hostel, quite central. My problems is with the beds: the mattresses are the cheapo sink-in type, really uncomfortable. Overall not too bad if you can just sleep anywhere.

The best possible location in Taipei if you are a foodie. The hostel has a very modern / industrial feel to it. Strong Wifi and A/C. Highly recommended

Dorm room door is not locked so security isn't super, no lockers in room and so bags are just under the bed but a small locker for valuables can be provided. However, beds are huge and comfy, aircon strong, and thick walls between beds! Will definitely come back!
