This is, without overstating it, the best hostel I've ever stayed in. It's cheap and homey, and it provides everything a hostel should provide (clean sheets and towels, hot showers, good internet connection, big common room & kitchen, etc.) Michael, the manager, does an amazing job at running that place, making sure that everybody here feels welcome, showing people around, giving good advice, spending time with the guests... Janet is also super helpful. Great location, 5 minutes away from the su

Good location right next to Songshan train station, convenient to the rest of the city. The place itself was a little run down and 悶, and the bathrooms could do with a thorough, top-to-bottom scrubbing. Not many locals, which meant a lot of boring been-there-done-that stories from the prototypical backpacker crowd. People barging in and out of the sleeping area all night were a pain. Front desk staff were helpful and friendly, and their cat is cute. Softest toilet paper in Taiwan.

I had so much fun staying at this hostel! It's a very chilled but great fun place to stay and Michael is a good laugh and very welcoming. Michael provides towels/ shampoo and the facilities are all kept really clean. Recommend to anyone staying in Taipei!!

This was, without over stating it, the most exceptional hostel we have stayed in across the world. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, instantly making us feel at home and welcomed. The place was everything a traveller could want; fresh sheets, clean rooms, comfy beds and great other guests. But beyond expectations, there were free towels, great kitchen facilities, a projector for movies and even shampoo and body wash provided! A great experience and would recommend to anyone.

Janet works very hard. I love the snowboards they sell as well for a huge discount. How they do that I don't know. HippieBike.com are so nice

Great people, free towels, movies in the common room and really well placed in Taipei to get to tourist sites in the city and by train to the test of Taiwan. I wouldn't go to any other hostel in Taipei.

This is a great place to meet people. The only unfortunate thing was that sometimes occupied beds would get allocated to new people. I know of a case where one guy got reallocated 4 times through his one week stay because he found his bed occupied when he came back at night.

Great hostel. Without Michael and Janet I wouldn't have had a clue what to do on my trip! The hostel has a great atmosphere.

This is a good hostel for the money. It does, however, need a really good clean! The shower plugs are full of hair that didn't get emptied when we were there. The kitchen floor was mopped but not swept before it; the dorm floors need a good clean (including under the bed!); the bathrooms need a scrub. You could just get a few work exchange people to give it a massive spring clean for a week and it would be really nice. Good to have a kitchen there. Films played every evening on a projector.

This is a great hostel, offering excellent value for money. Transport links are excellent (MTR subway plus overland train to the city nearest to Taroko National Park). Jen helped me greatly, essentially organising my whole trip, going over and above her duty to assist. Michael generated a great atmosphere for the guests. Legend plus history geek. Clean and secure, with a extensive range of information/resources on things to do in Taipei and the rest of Taiwan.

Such an amazing place that instantly felt like home. Friendly staff and very very safe. The kitchen is well equipped and you can cook meals and really make it as comfortable as you want. I enjoyed the quiet and cleanliness especially the company of all the great staff members. The beds were comfortable and changed daily. Bathrooms and showers always clean. Overall great atmosphere and convenient from the subway trains.
