SurfinTaipei can work as a starting point for Taipei, but only under certain conditions. Firstly, the hostel does not have any heating and the windows are often open, so wintertime is not ideal. Secondly, the hostel can be difficult to find, especially at night, which means I would recommend another hostel if you will arrive late in the day. The staff is lovely, but the buidling is not: I spotted a mouse during my stay, nonchalantly chalked up to Taipei's rainy weather and the building's age.

Great stay with all basic supplies provided (hairdryer, shampoo, etc) and fully equipped kitchen. It is really a 30 sec walk from NTU Hospital station, excellent location within a very happening area - a lot of local food and shops (range from Daiso to H&M) can be found around the hostel. It is not far away from Taipei Main Station (about 10 mins walk)

Hostel owner was so kind, and make us comfortable. Moring beverage was also nice and the location is between main station and NTU Hospital and Ximen. 7 minutes from each station.

The location was very convenient, with clear directions from the staff, and very secure. Unfortunately their showers didn't work properly, at times didn't have hot water, and were not in good condition. They didn' have individual lights in the beds, so dorm rooms were difficult to sleep in if someone turned the light on. There was a lot of street noise. They also seemed understaffed, with no one their in the late afternoon, early evening, or night time. But, it had a nice atmosphere.

Location: Convenient location near the MRT station, basically it's an inconspicuous white door next to a bubble tea shop. If you know the walking route, the hostel is also near to Taipei Main Stn! Staff: Helen, the staff at the hostel, was very friendly and helpful! :) Other comments: It would be good if the bunk beds are safer as there was one bed which had a ladder that was not attached to the frame. This 'detachable ladder' meant that climbing up to the bed was a little precarious.

Nice place, Helen was really friendly and helpful. Could see from the mementos left by other guests that this is a nice place and is well-liked. I would go back again :)

Fantastic location and friendly helpful host! Definitely recommend to our friends traveling to Taipei... Easy access to MRT, local food early in the morning, coffee joints till late night, convenience store across the street, bank ATM around the corner.

TaipeiTaipei is a place I will definitely stay in again! I love the location and the simple design. Rooms are comfortable and more than enough space. Get the room for two on the top floor! That was awesome. There is a small kitchen if you would like to get free coffee and make something. Chill on the couch each time you come home and just talk about your day. You don't feel like you are in the city in the hostel but once you step out it is as if someone just dropped you in the middle of it all.

Staff is friendly, circumstance is warm indeed with a sense of affinity and location is very convenient. Evn though the place is small but full of provisions in need. The only disadvantage is, the staircase is slope, hence its hard for carrying luggage.

Good location, but no staff after 6pm, so you get the door code and check yourself in, pay in the morning. Rooms are clean. Beds are hard! Bathroom floor is slippery when wet, dark, and has a step in a funny place, so just be careful. I would stay here again.

Great hostel in Taipei. I've stayed at a couple of different in hostels in Taipei before, and this one is easily my favorite. The staff are super friendly and easy going. They do a great job of keeping the place clean and helping to make your stay comfortably and enjoyable. I love the large common area on the first floor. It has a feeling of living in a house with couches to relax, tables to use for your laptop, and lockers, tv, fridge, kitchen, etc. Highly recommend you chose this hostel.

This hostel is a good price, great location very close to metro red line and only one stop from main station. It is definitely the most down low entrance I've ever seen to a hostel (basically one tiny white door in between many restaurants and all kinds of activity going on, BUT the hostel is still super quiet and has a cozy feeling to it) I stayed just one night in my own single room and it was the perfect choice before flying out of taipei.

Awesome hostel with a great location and very friendly and helpful staff. We arrived two Days late because of a big typhoon, the hostel was kind to move our reservation two Days without any fuss and also help us reschedule/rethink the rest of the trip, including tips for day trips and so on. Convenient location - walking distance to a lot of places, otherwise close to two subway stations and several bus stations. Lots of restaurants, incl typical Taiwanese breakfast places, just down the street!
