It's a supper nice hostel, i would like to recommend it to traveler who want to find a warm home during your trip. The reception girls are very pretty and nice, they helped me to make my travel plane in Taipei. They told me where shall i visit , where is the best place for local traditional food and which way to go. The hostel is very close to the subway station ,although it may takes some time to find it for the first time.It is also very quiet and clean, you can find every thing you want there

Many of the rooms are very loud, the room next to the kitchen has absolutely no protection against the sounds of cleaning, talking, the washing machine during the morning. Room could also use a little more proper hanging space to make the room possible for a long stay. Shower, toilet facilities are pretty good. Showers are good but could use better heads with better angles. Toilets... I loathe those spring-loaded toilet seats, but it isn't a deal-breaker. I would happily return.
As far as hostels go, this is a good one. The staff were incredibly helpful and knowledgeable, giving detailed maps of the local area as soon as you arrive and a brief summary of the city of Taipei. Facilities are average (two loos, three showers and three separate sinks) but they do offer free tea and hot water. Only downside was security - lockers are upstairs, away from the group dorms, and your dorm door is left open all the time. Staff also come in, clean, make your bed, so keep them safe!
Staff was really nice and helpful, place is nice and clean. Can get in touch with a lot of travelers and meet new people. It is located in a very convenient area where you can get almost everything. Ideal for students due to its proximity to the universities.

This was a pretty good hostel and the people who were staying there and the staff were great, but it was so loud! I realized that the noise was completely out of the hostel's control because it was the neighbor's radio and some stray cats that were making all the noise, but it was still a little annoying when I was trying to sleep. Otherwise, great proximity to the MRT, close to a 7, coffee shops, and breakfast places, and a wonderful lounge area to hang out and meet new friends.
Really friendly and helpful staff! Great security and location was perfect! Best beef noodle place around the corner!
We are touring on bicycles and this was no problem to keep them at the hostel, which is also on the ground floor. The staff are very helpful and relaxed. We liked the location - plenty of good food around and close to the MRT and the riverside. The hostel was easy to find - we'd use it again if we came back to Taipei.
