Now Taipei was amazing! Only problem was trying to find the place (tip:look for the house number that texted to you). Also, due to it's small size, the noise from people walking around is louder than normal. Overall, staff was great, facility was clean, and it was a 1~2 walk from the nearest subway station. Definitely recommend!

If you'll visit Taipei for the first time, I'll definitely recommend this hotel to you. The location is accessible to MRT, Airport, Fastfood chains, local eateries, Convenient Stores, Starbucks Coffee Store, and among others. The staffs are all accommodating to their guests and good english speakers especially Brishen. They make sure that all comfort rooms are always clean as well as the common areas in the hotel. It's really a value for money to stay at Now Taipei.

Perfect location only a few mins walk to train station, restaurants, and markets. But watch the guide video to know where the hostel is located because there is no sign. If you take a the airport bus 1819 it will drop you very close to the hostel. Very clean dorm room and shower rooms with soap and shampoo. Staff was very friendly and informative. The breakfast is very basic. Cons: not a very social hostel. They gave me a stinky pair or slippers upon arrival. Definitely would go back.

Enjoyed my stay at the hostel. Found my way easily from the youtube video links; location is within walking distance to zhongshan and taipei via the underground shopping streets. The alley leading to the hostel is a little dark and isolated at night. The dorm beds were segregated via curtains which was less claustrophobic and i liked that the beds were not creaky. However, with curtains, lights and sound pass shine through easily so less privacy from roommates.

Amazing location with wonderful cafes nearby. Hostel is clean and neat, instantly felt like a second home and a comfortable place to live at. Staff is very friendly from the start, thank you Emily for all the local tips on cafes and recommending places to go. Sleep is not hindered despite people drinking late in the night at the pantry during Christmas as the doors are thick.

The staff here especially Brishen is extraordinary friendly and helpful. Besides the lovely girl provides best recommendation for eating around. Other than this, this hostel is perfect considering atmosphere, infrastructure, cleanliness and location. I'm a fast walker so it takes only 30 seconds to go metro station. I will definitely visit here again and I even invited them to Shanghai:)

I spent 4 nights at Now Taipei and had a great time. It is a small and calm hostel (perfect for travellers from overseas who struggel with their jetlag...) and is perfectly situated, at the junction between the modern and the older districts. You can do a lot by foot, or take the metro around the corner. I definitely recommand the Hostel.

Everything about Now Taipei was great! Centrally located and easy access to the MRT allowed me to get to any of the popular tourist spots within 20 minutes. It was far enough from the main road which allowed for a peaceful sleep in an overall pieceful atmosphere with a helpful staff. I would definitely recommend Now Taipei to anybody seeking an affordable and enjoyable getaway to Taipei.

Had a cool vibe, staff were nice and willing to help and answer questions. The room size was good and I like how they had lockers and the hostel was very clean and provided us with slippers to walk around in.The price was very good for a group of six. The butter bun spread was so good.

Just 2 stops away from the walkable distance to ningxia night market and two oyster omelette places that I absolutely love, so yes, location wise this was great! Great service, nice big lockers, night light and socket next to dorm bed. Extremely clean toilets. Very quiet... I suppose slightly claustrophobic as there is no window in the dorm rooms but I guess that is a tradeoff for such quiet rooms!
