Dorms room are so big, have a lot of space, beds are comfortable and clean. Cheap price!


The staff were kind and helpful. However, the mattresses were very thin, so it felt like I was sleeping on the plywood of the bunk bed.


The hostel manager was very friendly and helpful in everything. The hostel was very clean.


It's a small place but very clean, 10-15 mins walk from MRT Taipower building station. The stuff there is willing to help. Only two bathrooms for guests, so you might need to wait a bit when everybody comes back at night. The common area is a bit small.

It is a bit far from the MRT stations, about 15 mins of walk. It is about 5 mins of walk to ShiDa night market, but the night market is sooo small. Overall it's a good hostel if you can walk a lot.


overall speaking is not that bad actually.


Host is very nice and helpful. Half minute walk from 24 hour convinient store and two minutes from night market. Place is clean and facilities are well equipped.


Nice:) We are happy in here.


As there are only two bathrooms with toilets attached, you will have to wait for your turn even if it means you want to use the toilet just to urinate... It would be better if there is a separate compartment for toilet and bathroom usage.


Great location. Not a lot of facilities, but its worth the money! Plus it's very clean.


Very enjoyable stay. Good wifi , ac and clean room. Marie was very sweet!

My parents stayed in this hostel for several days and were really satisfied. Location near Daan Park was really good (for me as I could meet them in hostel in 7 minutes from my place where I live)- 2 stores of 7eleven next to hostel, Shida Night market in surrounding, etc. Staff of the hostel- excellent, helpful and nice all the time we needed something extra or special. If I should once again accommodate someone in Taipei, for sure I would pick Rainbow hostel, it is good choice.

The position is nice , The traffic is also convince to go to any place . Very close two famous night market (師大夜市& 東門夜市) And there is a large park nearby. The hostel is very clean and new !! The room looks so great and staff is very kind ~


Near the Shida night market,10mins from subway. Quite noisy at night, and the power suddenly shut down one night as accident。The receive boy was kind rude。


A very disappointing stay of 4 nights. The location is far from ideal: 15 to 20 minutes walk to the MRT as it's situated half way in between Da'an and Guting station, very inconvenient to go downtown. Then, there is very little space and no decoration, and the atmosphere is often full of humidity (lack of ventilation). Our ultra girly (all bright pink..) double-bed room was not well isolated from outside, with old newspapers blocking the air! Which unavoidably got us cockroaches in. Never again.


It's located in the city in the vicinity of national Taiwan normal university. Excellent location and friendly staff. Expect minimum facilities though.


The staff are great and extremely helpful with everything. The hostel is very close to Guting station which is a convenient line, close to cafes, convenience stores and night markets. Great value for money and a relaxed, friendly and home-like atmosphere. Its kept very clean as well and wifi is fast


The staff didn't manage me to check in, as they were all asleep
