This is a wonderful little hostel with some very accommodating and friendly staff. It's a bit out of the way (either a bus ride or a 15 minute walk to the nearest MRT station), but other than that, it's a perfect place to stay while in Taipei!


This place is immaculately clean, it has everything you could possibly need and has staff that will help you with anything, whenever you need it. We have stayed here for an extended period while we looked for jobs and it could not be more welcoming and convenient. I recommend this place to everyone as it perfectly represents the friendly and considerate Taiwanese culture.

- this was the second time i stayed in this hostel, the 4-beds room was good with big window, but the three-beds room is not that good. - Should not walk from Taipower stn, instead, take any bus from Guting stn, just 3 bus stop away, its faster.


- The place is clean, staff is quite useful and friendly. Quite near to Shida night market but quite far from MRT station except you know how to take a bus. - The wall separated each room make by wood not concrete, quite noisy if someone hit the wall accidentally. - Worth for money, good to stay.


It would be good to have a computer with internet at the hostel. And it's much much easier to reach your hostel from Guting than from Taiwan Power Building station!


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.
