I am giving my both thumbs up. I was only there for one night.The Owner here. He is not just friendly but incredibly nice. He picked me from the station and given me great tips on what to do and see. The place was very clean and nice. Its also quiet at night as you won't hear motorcyclist noise. Its really worth the monies.

Felt very much like a home to me. The warm hospitality of Chunky, the owner, as well as friendly atmosphere with other guests made me enjoy my stay here. The location is perfect, 3-5 mins from the MRT/Bus/Train Station. There are plenty of good food around (ask Chunky about the sushi, beef noodle, and donut!). The bathroom is clean, the facilities are excellent (anything you need!), and they have food for you all day long! The bed is quite comfy, and the wifi worked well. A wonderful place!

Thanks for the hospitality and keeping the accommodation clean all the time! Location was central and convenient -- and the map that the staff emailed me in advance was helpful in finding it.

Taipei City Home is the best hostel I've stayed at in Taipei at this price range, and I've stayed in most of them. The location, while initially hard to find, is great for travelers. Chunky, the host, is awesome and friendly. Plus the beds had foam mattresses and latex pillows like whaaaaa. Only downside is there are few bathrooms relative to the number of beds; I wish they would add more guest sinks/mirrors in the hallway to gainfully use that dead space. Overall, amazing!

Stayed here for a long weekend in a group of four guys. The location was easy to find and very convenient for travelling around the city. The staff were very helpful and recommended some good local food in the area. I would highly recommend this as a easy place to set up camp to travel around Taipei.

Great hostel! Good location, information/advice, and facilities. (kitchen, free laundry, etc.) Staying at Chunky's hostel feels like visiting an old friend. He and his family even cooked a huge traditional meal for all the guests on Chinese New Year! (for free!)

Easily one of the best hostels I've stayed at to date. No wonder it was #1 during my search. Chunky is a gracious and helpful host. The showers, room, whole house is immaculate and comfortable which is very important for me. Also met tons of great people during my stay here. Shout out to Terry and Mimi! Stay here and your trip to Taiwan is sure to be amazing.

Chunky and the other staff were all friendly and super helpful in planning our trips around Taipei. The location of the hostel is excellent - the train station, bus stations, and metro are all nearby. There's also a couple 7-11s and a bubble tea place with an English menu around with corner. Our room was really clean and the beds were super comfortable. My only complaint is that the hot water ran out after a few people showered. Also, there were a couple of rogue mosquitoes in our room.

Really comfortable guest house style place. My room was extremely nice, with a Japanese-style bed and lots of wood furniture. Chunky and his staff were great and extremely helpful when I needed anything.
