You can't find a better location other than this. It has everything that you need: cleanness, cosiness, information, convenience, and craziness (if you expect). International power socket, In-locker power socket, first-aid, hair dryer, hair straightener, guided tour, and breakfast. I really see them progressing in the past two years and I really enjoy staying with them.


Homey is a great hostel. Conveniently located close to the main bus station so getting around is easy. Staff was very friendly and the main hall felt open with plenty of seats and things to do, everything from looking at the computer, reading, playing cards or boardgames and meeting people. Cleanliness in the bathrooms could use improvement but it's a large hostel with lots of travelers so I can imagine that it is difficult to keep it completely clean 24/7. Overall it was a great stay.


The location is near taipei main station, ningxia night market and there's 7-11, mcdonals and kfc around the corner. The staff is very friendly. But the breakfast is a bit disappointing, it started from 8.30. The shower and toilet is mixed gender, but very clean. There's no more staff after 11pm, so if you need their help, do it before then.

I appreciate for your review to tell us this problem. few month ago, we upgrade our aircondition. It was solved by lower down the temperature setting. :) by josh


Convenient and the price reasonable.Very crowded - had to wait 10-15 minutes for a shower in a bathroom that was not well ventilated. They did provide 2 hair dryers. The common room was always busy with people, which was nice except for after 10PM when it was still noisy through two sets of doors from inside my room. Bed was comfortable, but I had a severe allergic reaction to the dust. Security: did not have to pass front desk to get into hostel or to rooms, so maybe not that secure.

Thank you for your review. we did following job to improve: 1. four hair dryers and ventilation fan was added to the bathroom right now. 2. the soundproof door between looby and room was set to close automatic. 3. all woolen blanket is change to blanket to prevent allergy. 4. we have security guard on ground floor and CCTV in common area. the door locker is secure and can't be copy. the most important is we have good guest! :) by josh
