The place is very convenient The manager, Michael, is very funny and friendly. It is fun to be around him. :) The staffs there are generally very helpful, but I like Mitch the most. As I spends most of my time there around him and the chats with him makes me feel very comfortable, like a brother or something. :) Although is just a short few days but it is definitely unforgettable I hope I can go there again soon

Good cheap place. Very basic, not free tea coffee brekkie, etc. Clean. Dave was only a housekeeper but wound up being like the receptionist for me by answering all my questions. Thanks!

I always like staying at your hostel. Michael especially is very great host and is always interacting and having fun with the other backpackers. Whether it's suggesting great places to go or drinking with us at night, he was a valuable part of my stay at the Meeting Place

Average hostel with a big common room in the center. The staff were very knowledgeable and had plenty of info on the city, and were eager to help. Within walking distance of the MRT & Raohe night market.

Good place for meeting new friends. But have to pay attention if you do not like too open and free space between men and women.

Great and friendly atmosphere! I felt comfortable instantly. Staff is great about helping you in any way. If you like meeting people while traveling abroad, I definitely reccomend The Meeting Place!

Every time I'm in Taipei I stay here. I've stayed a few nights at AirBnB locations, above a coffee shop, and at other hostels and The Meeting Place is my FAVORITE. Easy-going, social, clean, friendly staff, and located close to the Songshan and Houshanpi MRT stations, The Meeting Place has it all. And a cat to play with! Wish I could have stayed even longer. You'll enjoy your stay here =)

The cost of the hostel gave me low expectations, but we got way more than we expected. We received great service, the location was perfect because it was next to one of the best night markets and everyone was friendly!!

Good location and easy to get to now that the new MRT line is open to SongShan station. Close to Raohe nightmarket and wufenpu. Hostel has a great atmosphere and as the name suggests, it's a great place to meet people!

There were many Americans teaching English and staying in Taipei. It seemed to me that the hostel was like a meeting place for them. I didn't see any Taiwanese unlike other hostels. Staff was nice, but guests staying there very long were not so friendly to short-term guests. Their location is close to MRT Songshan Station as well as Songshan Railway Station. Because this information was not provided by the hostel, I walked from Houshanqi, carrying heavy backpacks, and it was very tiring.

Hi, I am sorry to hear you didn't have a great time with us. However, I want to thank you for your feedback as we appreciate all comments which help us to improve our service. The issue with the directions from Houshanpi has been updated on our directions. This was because Songshan MRT station had only opened a few days prior to your arrival. I hope the next time you are in Taipei you will consider TMP to stay and I will strive to ensure you have an amazing stay!!

The best backpacker hostel in Taipei. Allow me to explain: -Clean beds, showers, bathrooms -3-minute walk to the green line Songshan station to get to anywhere in Taipei that has an MRT station (everywhere) -4-minute walk to the Raohe Market where you can buy all kinds of foods and clothes -Staff is incredibly friendly, helpful, and their ENglish is perfect (almost all native-English speakers) -They have a common room with a projector screen and a great kitchen Stay here. Period.

这是一个非常适合自助背包客的客栈。首先它的位置非常好,从松山车站或捷运步行不到10分钟,出门3分钟就是基隆河成美桥,可以在桥上眺望101,或者在岸边公园散步。松山车站旁边就是饶河街夜市。客栈内有一个很大的客厅,一间安静的阅读室,有厨房,炊具餐具一应俱全。寝室在一个相对封闭的空间,非常安静。住在这里的基本上是在台湾学习中文的老外,有的一住就是半年。
