The best hostel I've stayed in. - bedrooms and bathrooms are impeccably clean - the guys there are so friendly - they hold activities like movies every night and tours - you have a mini locked cubby to put your belongings - you get mini curtains around your bed so it's more private - there is so many leaflets and maps available to help you out - so much effort goes in to the production of this place and it absolutely pays off!!

Staffs are friendly, but the room is full of bad smell.

Enjoyed my stay, appreciate the fact that some of the staff members tried their best to bring the travellers together for a social gathering/meeting in the evening.

This is one of the best hostels I have stayed in and I have traveled quite extensively throughout South east Asia. These guys know what there doing it's centre around a good location, hot showers, great common room, fast wifi, free breakfast, you feel like home such a friendly atmosphere. They need to add an elevator though, a bar upstairs and offer some tours other than that great place to stay I highly recommend it.

If staying in Taipei on a budget this is a very nice hostel with excellent staff. Great location as it's only 1 stop away from the main terminal by subway. The staff is super friendly, helpful and accommodating. You won't regret your stay here.

A great hostel in the Ximen area of Taipei. One of the largest common areas I've seen in any hostel, very friendly staff, good facilities, free tours, movie nights etc. Some nights they even had free food and alcohol! Ximen area itself is cool, with a lot of indy type shops and some good local food; the nearsest MTR station is a 5-10 min walk from the hostel. Would definitely stay again if I'm back in Taipei

Darts in the common room, fresh fruit for breakfast and cleaning staff that exceeded every standard I ever imagined. Do not miss the evening walking tour of the local neighbourhood on the day of your arrival. Warning: lots of stairs.

This hostel is amazing! The staff are so friendly and the entire place has a very warm and inviting feel to it. The curtains on the beds are fantastic; there are, universal plugs on every bed and a light. The beds are comfortable and there are secure lockers in the rooms. The free breakfast is fantastic and a great way to start your day. I have already booked my second stay here!

After staying at Meander Taipei, it feels almost wrong to call it a hostel as its standard and quality is way beyond that of any hostel you can think of. Usually when one reads a review that says the staff is friendly, one thinks of plastic smiles and constant pandering but at Meander they are so much more than that. They are helpful, happy to answer any questions you may have. They're informative, can advise on so many things to do in Taiwan. They're friendly, you'll have great time with them.

Perfect hostel! There were tons of activities such as movie nights and tours of ximending.... even foosball competitions! Coming from Singapore this was a tremendous bump up from all the hostels of South East Asia.

One of the best hostels I have stayed. Extremely friendly staff and other travellers. The big common area makes it easy to get to know other travellers. Very comfortable beds (unless the top most bed..), free breakfast, movies every night, walking distance to MTR, many shops and restaurants close by.. Excellent hostel! I would definitely stay here again if I come to Taipei!

I think other hostels should take notes on Meander. It's the best atmosphere. It's so easy to meet others. The common area is massive and makes you want to just hang out there. Free breakfast and movies every night are such great ideas. Some of the movies were meh- but that's really the only complaint. Maybe offering top bunk at a lower fee... Really an awesome hostel

Loved this place. A bit far from MRT but has the best atmosphere out of any hostel I've been to. Huge common area, where anything goes. On my first night, they held a birthday party for a guest and played Spirited Away. It was awesome meeting new people over the free breakfast or while hanging out. The staff is super friendly.

I really love Meander Hostel. The location is very strategic and easy to find. The staffs and the people here are very helpful and friendly. There's nothing I do not like about a meander. If I were to go Taipei again, I would definitely choose Meander.
