So far this is the best hostel I have stayed in Taiwan, great location, breakfast store and convenient store in the back alley, have MRT station and a famous night market near by. It has 3 lovely common area that you could use: Huge TV room, study room and a kitchen table, and you won't hear any noise in the bedroom. This hostel is very similar to some Hostel in Europe, I would definitely recommend it to all the travelers in Taiwan!

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.

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!

Loved this hostel. The staff are great and so are all the people staying there, particularly the long termers. I spent many a lovely evening sitting outside and chatting with the various residents. A very chill vibe throughout and a lot of cool people to meet - it's definitely well-named. Rooms are comfortable and bathrooms are clean. They also provide everything you need (even shower slippers, which I always forget to bring with me!) I will definitely stay here again if I come back to Taiwan.

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
