The staff are super friendly and helpful. The location is great - really close to the MRT station and also Shilin night market. The room was BIG, much larger than we were expecting, and really clean. Also, since it's back a bit from the main road, it's quiet and peaceful. It's a very secure location, we felt really safe there. Would definitely stay again!

We had a lovely time in our private studio apartment. Close to MRT, helpful staff and nice touches to the rooms (IKEA bedspread, big windows, wide selection of English TV shows)

There are two "branches" of Fun Taipei Backpacker, one (The main branch with counter) is located at Shilin night market, and another one takes about 5-8 mins walking distance to Shilin night market. Both branches near to Jian Tan MRT station. We've booked two rooms ( 1 double bed & 1 family), both rooms are clean and comfy. The family room is big enough, everything is good except there are some ants in the room (on the table). Host are kind and friendly, and we enjoyed our stay here.

Hostel was very cheap and dainty.However,the bed was very noisy because of a plastic sheet. Overally, it was worth the money.

Pros: good location just 3min to MRT station, which takes 5 stations to Taipei main station; many places for breakfast and dinner in surrounding, especially Shilin night market Cons: just a room or rooms in a normal house, with no reception and staff at location

Everything is good but i think there is room for improvement. Example we can take extra towels. I stayed there for 1week with my boyfriend but only 2small towels for the entire week. We have been using the same towel for one whole week. Overall i am very satisfied.
