Great mix of Asians and Westerners, travelers and students. Feels more calm and sophisticated than the usual hostel, but still throbs with adventure and spontaneity. The central lounge is inviting even if you don't spend much time there, while the "quiet" room is a great space to de-compress. The dorms can get a bit chaotic, but I always slept really well. The Songshan neighborhood is conveniently near the City Hall bus station. I'll definitely stay here when I come back to Taipei.

Loved TMP - staff was lovely and it has an unbeatable atmosphere. Nice powerful showers too, and really close to the underground and a night market.

Honestly not sure why this place is well reviewed. Decent location near two subways. Reeks of sweat, AC is central and turned on by the staff, meaning it's only on from around midnight to 4 am. Besides then it's brutally hot, even the common room is too hot to be in until midnight. It's so hot it's difficult to sleep at night; be prepared to wake up in your sweat. Longterm stayers own this place and aren't friendly, leave a mess of beer bottles, etc. Stay elsewhere.

Cant complain at the price. Good atmosphere.

Good value for the price. However, the hostel smells like STANK! The dorm room especially! It would also be nice to know who's on duty at the front desk.

The Meeting Place is a great place to stay, and really makes up for its name. During my stay Michael cooked twice for everybody (for free). They have a very comfy common area, and a quiet study room as well. Distance to mrt station is very convenient, nightmarket, 7/11, hilife, you'll find everything around. If there's something to improve, it would be the cleanliness in the shower room, but then again it's an incredibly cheap price for a night. I can recommend this place!

I strongly "dis-recommend" this hostel. First of all, the sanity is really poor. In the hallway of the hostel, there's a trash box piled with stinky, smelly thrown away clothes. Also, in the room, they don't offer air-condition during daytime and even morning(just after 12AM to 4?), so it's really humid and smelly inside. Furthermore, there's like "Western hippy's bunker". I think the half of the guests are long-term stayer, so you can easily be outsider especially for Asian people.

Indeed a great place to meet new people! Due to its cheaper price, you can meet many travelers from all over the world and they're generally nice. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Cleanliness might be a slight issue because there's some smell in the hostel and some of the bathrooms aren't that clean. Good internet connection tho!

I love The Meeting Place! It's near to the Songshan MRT station, all the staff in TMP is nice! The room is comfortable and clean. People here come from different places, you could make lots of friends here and you may join them to visit. It's really nice!!! If I will visit Taipei again, TMP definitely would be my first choice.

Feels like a university dorm, with open spaces inside and outside to socialize -- and a quiet room for those who want to study or meditate. Electric anti-mosquito lights are a great help. Bed spaces are adequate and there are plenty of sockets everywhere for recharging devices. I slept really well for 8 nights thanks to cold aircon. The Irish guy at reception is super friendly and helpful. Looks like a good place to live for a few months if you're a student. Only gripe: could use bigger lockers.

The meeting place is definitely the best place to stay in Taipei. It has a really relaxed and social atmosphere just like Taipei. It's clean and cool with a social and busy common area. Big thanks to Jenny for being amazingly kind and printing the thousands of forms I needed. Definitely left it last minute but she helped :) Michael is definitely the life and heart of the place and goes out of his way to make sure everything is amazing. Until my next trip take care guys

A great wee hostel. Top atmosphere and friendly staff, Mathilde and Michael even went above and beyond to the point of doing a communal snack and booze run for the guests. Mathilde even shared some of Michael's Guinness :D. Close to two of the train lines and also a pretty cool night market. All round pretty great, definitely the atmosphere and friendly staff make the place!

Stayed at this hostel at the recommendation of a friend, and I'm really glad I did. The staff were super welcoming and helpful, accommodated my late arrival and greeted me with a smile. Ben, Matilda, Michael and Kat did a great job making me feel at home. This place is a bargain and a half...the least expensive place in Taipei, but it was clean, had towels, comfortable beds, and a great location one block from the Metro. If I return to Taipei I will surely stay at the meeting place again!

Where to start? I've been traveling for almost a year now and the Meeting Place will go down as one of, if not my favourite hostel. Michael, Ben, and the rest of the staff (I'm so sorry I've forgotten the names of the ladies who worked there) made Taipei a fantastic stop despite my being under rather some stress at the time. Their advice helped me make the most of my stay, while the hostel was clean, with a great atmosphere, easy to sleep and socialize, great food nearby. Can't recommend enough.
