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

The location of Banana hostel is phenomenal. Extremely close to the Dongmen MRT, which itself is in a very nice part of Taipei. The hostel was clean, but the facilities had a very industrial feel, at times veering towards prison, what with the 16-bed dorm room and security cameras aplenty (yeah, and there is a staff member that watches them behind the counter). While the staff in general were friendly, I couldn't shake the image of the owner as hostel warden. Wasn't the warmest guy at all.

Friendly place in excellent location. The room was a bit small but all other facilities were spacious and comfortable.

Couple, stayed in the "luxury" double. Certainly the best hostel we stayed at in Taiwan, including two others we tried in Taipei. Probably one of the best Hostels we ever saw! Especially the super friendly staff and the nice area to hang out around the reception help for a great atmosphere and it's very easy to get in touch with the other guests. Nothing more to say, just go there :-)

My stay at banana hostel was really pleasant. The staff is lovely and helpful, the free breakfast in the morning plus free food and water in common area is nice and the dorm is absolutely great ! The disposition is convenient and gives a real privacy (the bed is in a kind of cell, with curtain and inside there is a lamp and two international power plug). Long story short, I liked my stay there and will stay there again if I come back to Taipei.
