Amazing host! Great hostel! I only put "good" in security, because you leave your shoes by the entrance, which MAY be a little iffy...

The hostel was a little hard to find at first but it was not far from the MRT, so the location was great. There are also convenient bus routes and sightseeing around the hostel. Danny was a great host and very helpful in recommending things to do, places to go and where to eat. He was also helpful in arranging ways for people in the hostel to hang out together, which was great for a solo traveler like me. Other than the small bugs I would see every now and then, it was a great stay.

Really nice place. Danny is very helpful ...and so is Bob, his most frequent customer. Good location, near to lots of clubs and pubs. You need to specify your ETA as there is not always someome around to let you in.

Danny was amazing. He made this stay totally worth it - kind, welcoming, genuine. He sat me down and gave me things to do in Taiwan and for my trip later in China. The hostel is spotlessly clean and welcoming. Beds are comfortable. About a 10minute walk to the metro. Would absolutely stay at Socket again.

It's just not bad but not good. I cannot complain the socket hostel, but cannot give complements.

I'll join everyone else in saying Danny is a great host. Location is good, 15 minute walk from Sun-Yat Sen Memorial hall (MRT station as well), the hostel was a bit tricky to find initially, but don't let that put you off staying, you get used to it quickly. It's got great security, and the bathrooms have good privacy, the rooms are nice and clean too.

希望在双床房内配上电视机,或许可以增加点房费,但是对于喜欢观看佛经节目和新闻节目的房客,会是一个很好的便利条件。

Such a good hostel! The manager is super nice and will help you with almost anything. His knowledge about Taipei will help you quite a lot in terms of maximizing your trip.
