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!

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.

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.

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

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.

I just traveled 389 days and back to Taipei. I felt lucky that I chose this hostel to stay. The staff is the soul here. He makes this place a real "Meeting Place" Very clean. Choose the 10 dorm beds room in the corner. There a big window inside the room. Very clean and comfortable common area. A good kitchen. I like the movie night. 5 mins walk to MRT.

Thank you Willy! Guests are the real soul of TMP. I enjoyed your travel stories which gave me courage to explore the world again. I can't wait!

The staff is extremely nice and welcoming which made the experience a comfortable one. The Meeting Place was a great place to come back to after a long day of exploring the city. My group stayed in the 4 person private--the beds were comfortable, wardrobe useful. Sweet, simple, convenient :) Reminded me of a summer camp kind of experience. What can I say? A few nights here was really fun. I would recommend for short stays. Hostel smell was a bit funky at times..any way to fix? Thanks!! :D

Thanks a lot!!! We are really flattered. We really enjoy you stay that makes TMP much more fun!!! The hall way is smelly occasionally due to the shoes. However our ventilation system is working well to prevent the embarrassing odor.

This place rocks. I meant to only stay 5-7 days, ended up there for 3 weeks. It's spacious: you have everything you need (full kitchen, two fridges, huge couches, tables, study room/office, showers bathrooms, bunks with ample storage space). Plus there are plenty of long term people there who are friendly and always someone hanging around to talk to or do your own thing if you prefer. Every morning they were cleaning everything like little elves. Great value and a great landing spot in Tapei

Rafa and Alfred always make sure to help with my traveling plans, they even helped me to improve my chinese :) I had inclusive the misfortune of having some heath problems but Rafa was very eficient trying to make sure I would find medical care asap. I loved the place and will stay next time! 謝謝你們!
