Excellent stay, close enough to Songshan Train station to get around Taipei. Had a great time with all the people in the hostel!


Great, the location is good and there is a big comfortable common area


This hostel was really friendly, accommodating, and convenient. The only downfall was that it was difficult to find because the directions say to walk out of the subway exit 4 to the 3 way intersection(which is more like an alley intersection)but there is a 4 way intersection right as you walk out of the subway to the right but the 3 way intersection is to the left. The people were very helpful and some people live there long-term so that brought a different feel to the place (positive for sure)

Thank you for the precious comment, we will fix the direction. It was really nice to having you!


Location is very good. Close to Raohe Night market and other places. Also has bus stop nearby so that can go to Jiufen easily. Laundry service for a box is NT100.


After travelling for over a year, every once in a while you run into real gems like the meeting place Its a hostel where you can make yourself at home: huge lounge space with projector, huge toilets and shower area, soft mattresses with proper pillows and a real office space to work in with super fast wifi What really made a difference to me though is the staff, really youthful mix of local Taiwanese and westerners who are going well above what's required. Oh, they also have a cat!

A big thank-you for your compliment, I can't even find a proper word to describe how moved I am! Yes, we are the best team and with the best guests, which makes here the real Meeting Place. Our cat's name is Schrödinger, hooray!


An excellent hostel for backpackers in Taipei!


this was not my first time and same I usual it was perfect, you never expect that for one of the cheapest hostel in Taipei, good location, good staff and helpful, I will go back again for sure


Had high expectations due to reviews that I've read...and left disappointed. The rooms, showers and lockers are good. What I was disappointed in was the lack of socializing here, hence its name. The long term guys here all stick together and doesn't seem to have any interest in talking with the new short term people. Another note, there is 1 male & 1 female person in charge. If you ever need any help or questions, go to the male, he's way more nicer, open minded and helpful than the female.


I spent really a great time at hostel. Was clean, cheap, and the manager Rafael was very kind and friendly. And really good atmosphere.

Miss you so much Nicolino!!!! Safe trip in southeast Asia and come back soon. Mwww


The hostel is located very near to Song Shan Train Station and Raohe Night Market. They charge very affordable rates in the city of Taipei.


Wonderful location, very near to the night market. Lovely spacious common area for relaxing or party. Well designed and comfortable rooms . Very helpful and friendly staff. Highly recommend.


One of the cheapest hostels you can find in Taipei. Overall I'm satisfied with the stay at the Meeting Place

thank you for a comment and hope to see you again:) Cheers Vanna


The meeting place is good hostel. Staff was very friendly , facilities were good. Night market is near. We were able to stay comfortably.


Sry it took me so long to add this review. First I have to say that the price is really cheap. You can hardly find another hostel as cheap as this one. Second, the common room is really big and well adorned. Besides that, there is also a kitchen and a room for reading or using laptop. The location is great, and will be better six months later when the MRT grean line extension is finished.Atmosphere and staff are also great. I'd like to recommend the hostel to equip each bed of a dorm with a lamp


pretty good and clean place and friendly staff. Nice atmospher and convenient facility for showering and cooking.


Great place! Had an awesome time. Would for sure stay again. Staff were great (if a little up right about the rules- but the rules were few and not over the top) great location. Good little kitchen and a movie night every night! Loved it.


Excellent! This is the hostel where you feel like home. The staff are really friendly and you have a very cozy living room and facilities. It's very clean and tiny as I realized the staffs do regular cleaning and often they organized events and parties open for all. Made many new friends around the world. Strongly recommend and definitely value for money.
