Really enjoyed my stay here. Probably the most comfortable and clean hostel I've stayed at. Staff is friendly and helpful, and Yong Kang St, with its shops, restaurants, bars etc is right nearby. My only gripe was that the place was really quiet and low-key, so if you're looking for a place to party go elsewhere. Perfect if you're just trying to take it easy or travelling with friends.

Comfortable hostel. Great beds, individual 'pod-style' with their own light and universal plugs. Close to the metro. Breakfast included which was good.

You guys are doing an awesome job. One of the brightest, most comfortable, best set up hostels I've ever seen, and definitely the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in. Keep up the good work, Banana. We will be back if we ever make it back to Taiwan.

Convenient. Good location and value for money. There's free breakfast too, self- serve. Clean, everything you need is there. Strong wifi too. All in all worth the value. Will be going back when we travel again to Taipei. :-)

This is second time to stay, but they are always friendly, clean, good atmosphere, and very good location. It takes only three minutes from station, so it is very useful. I want to appreciate for their frexible service. Their banana cakes are also good. We really enjoyed staying in Taiwan and Banana hostel. Thank you.

The location was fantastic, which is very near from Yungkang Street. The staffs were very kind and friendly. We've stayed at the private room, it was a little bit small, but has many facilities, even TV. I love the interior of Banana hostel, which has a lot of humourous idea. If I have more changes to visit Taipei, I'm thinking of visit again !!

Love everything except that the bunk bed may be a little high and hard to climb up.

The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the local culture and life. They will give you honest advice on where to go. They are also very open to any topic of conversation. Everyone there is like family. The location is super easy to find and convenient to supermarket and other shops. The atmosphere is also very chill, I got to meet with people with all backgrounds. There is plenty of privacy even in a 16 dorm. BEST STAY! THANK YOUUUUUUU :)

Very nice hostel! Pretty hard to find but it is totally worth the search!! Clean beds, nice warm showers, nice roof top, good breakfast, etc etc. I am very positive about this hostel! I also really liked the neighbourhood it is in, because there are a lot of nice little shops en not like the commercial big shops you have everywhere. Also a nice park you can chill in!

I had a one night stay there and enjoyed it very much. The hostel is located about 1 minute from Dongmen MRT station. Staff is very friendly (especially Joy) and everything you need is provided (Towels, linen, toiletries, washing machine, kitchen etc). Big bonus for free bananas and weekend banana cake! Beds are comfortable and I really liked that the room had a window for fresh air. Very minor downside is the pincode entrance (easily breachable but also means you don't risk losing the key).
