A really clean, great hostel. There is a deck on the 4th floor for smoking and a common area on the 2nd floor, unfortunately no one wanted to hang out. Great place to stay, not so much for meeting people.

I was very happy with my stay there. It is clean and secure and the staff are nice. Their instructions on how to find the place are good. I would stay there again if I was in Taipei. Allow time to find Taipei West Bus Station if you are catching the bus to the airport as Taipei Main Station is very big.

I've stayed at a few hostels, but Banana Hostel is by far my favorite. Location is discreet, in a good location that isn't filled with too much tourism, but it's right next to a subway station making public transportation convenient. The place is super clean and the beds are super nice. I stayed in a 16-person bedroom, which sounds like a lot, but each cubby/bed came with a curtain. Strangely enough, it felt more spacious than a capsule hotel too. Enjoyed my stay, would definitely come back.

Banana Hostel is a friendly hostel to stay in. I really appreciate that Wilbur, Joy and Lexi waited till 11pm for me to check in. I stayed in the 16 bed mixed dorm and the bed was comfortable and big. Really appreciate the private curtains as well. Would definitely recommend this to any backpackers in Taipei!

Really enjoyed our stay in the double private room - room itself and shared bathroom were both very clean, comfortable sleep. The hostel was very close to the MRT and other tourist destinations (Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, Din Tai Fung...etc). Would recommend Banana Hostel for future travelers.

Everything was great, one of their staff waited for me to help me check in when I arrived after 11pm. I stayed in the 16 bed room, but large beds, and curtains still provide enough privacy! Free bananas and banana bread is a really nice touch :) Great central location, easy to get everywhere. Highly recommended.

While the it was inconvenient to shift our heavy luggage up and down the steep steps, there were always other very helpful travelers hanging around the common area to offer help. The rooftop is really a good place to have a beer at the end of a tiring day!

Awesome hostel. Great location, friendly & helpful staff, excellent facilities. I stayed in the 16 bed dorm, all the beds are boxed off to give you privacy, and come with your own light and power adapter. Couldn't ask for more.

Oh, this is another Ikea concept hostel. So if you like it, you will feel like staying in Ikea showroom. Overall, this hostel is good, equip with the necessary info that you need (tourism info, transportation, eating out, etc). I like the pantry most. big space, can even cook there. There is a balcony, although I didn't use it but I like how it looks.I do appreciate a lot that Lexi sent me a video with the direction to the hostel, it had ease my way. Keep up the good job!
