Nice hostel, especially the huge common area is very nice. Breakfast could be a bit better, then again you should eat as little toast as possible and then eat all the local food you can find anyway.


location is very goooooooooooood


Wonderful staff, they were very helpful and fun. Lots of community space, and clean, comfortable rooms. Conveniently located near public transportation..

Double private rooms are definitely worth the price. I slept well and in security. The hostel is within walking distance to Taipei Main Train Station and a night market.


Great , everything is occupied and the place is clean and nice, what's more , access to public transport is very convenient, just within walking distance and you able to get to TAIPEI station ~ I might be staying over again ~ XD


The Homey hostel is convenienly located near the Taipei Main Station. The staff were friendly, and the facilities clean. There is one thing I'd like to criticize , and that's the furniture in the common area. I didn't like the plastic chairs, and I think that more couches arranged in the right way would facilitate more social interaction.

dear guest, yes right area is more social area and left part is kind like for ppl who need private space for using computer or studying. We will consider how to set common area to more comfortable and relaxable !
