The breakfast was amazing. The bed was extremely comfy as well. The laundry was free. The only thing was that the main rooms, which were well furnished, wasnt used much.

Wi-fi's speed not that high. Nice common areas, some rooms are new and nice but too small, some very big but do not look that new. The bathroom is too far away from some rooms and some toilettes rooms too small, but cleaned.

A little hard to find, but the hosel is a wonderful, home-like base in the heart of the Shilin area (great for food and on the red MRT line, so convenient for all your sightseeing). The staff are very friendly and speak English perfectly and the hostel has everything you need. The free breakfast from 8.30-10 am provides an opportunity to meet other guests and make plans for the day. After booking two nights initially, I stayed for 6! Taipei and surroundings needs at least a week.

Pros: - Good level of privacy due to the curtains around the individual beds, - Friendly & acommodating staff very happy to help in any way, - Good location, very close to the Metro, Shilin night market and other attractions, Cons: - Tricky to find as there was no sign outside & we didn't receive meeting point email until after we had caught our flight, - WiFi could be a bit temperamental, but was faster late at night & during the afternoon when there were fewer people around.

Rating based on hostel, not the residents (which was rather great during my stay). The bed is comfy enough, squeaks a bit, soft linen and good block out curtains. Good shower rooms, and clean. Wall is indeed a bit thin, and room is smallish. Common room is rather nice but not used. Most socialising is done at breakfast. Free laundry and breakfast includes rice and noodles. Close to station. Overall it's a very good place to stay in Taipei given the alternatives

Fantastic stay and was in a great location. The atmosphere was fine but many visitors didn't visit the lounge area so it was difficult to meet people. The breakfast was a perk, but once the first batch of food ran out, noone else got any of it. It should be restocked and check on every now and then so people can get the breakfast included in the price.

Great place! Good stay other than a few things. Bed was clean, although not comfortable, no type of back support. I ended up with several spider bites at this stay. Walls are thin, so you can hear people from the bathroom besides the females dorm. Otherwise, cool spot. Check in friendly, staff orderly, free laundry, basic breaksfast like fruit, coffee, white bread w pb.

Good: Near Shilin Night market, excellent facilities including kitchen and bedding. Helpful staff. Neutral: Bedroom and hallway is tad cramped. Can be improved: The communication between the staff and guest can be improved. Could consider giving the map straight off instead of the staff receiving the call to fetch the guest.
