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

A great wee hostel. Top atmosphere and friendly staff, Mathilde and Michael even went above and beyond to the point of doing a communal snack and booze run for the guests. Mathilde even shared some of Michael's Guinness :D. Close to two of the train lines and also a pretty cool night market. All round pretty great, definitely the atmosphere and friendly staff make the place!

Stayed at this hostel at the recommendation of a friend, and I'm really glad I did. The staff were super welcoming and helpful, accommodated my late arrival and greeted me with a smile. Ben, Matilda, Michael and Kat did a great job making me feel at home. This place is a bargain and a half...the least expensive place in Taipei, but it was clean, had towels, comfortable beds, and a great location one block from the Metro. If I return to Taipei I will surely stay at the meeting place again!

Where to start? I've been traveling for almost a year now and the Meeting Place will go down as one of, if not my favourite hostel. Michael, Ben, and the rest of the staff (I'm so sorry I've forgotten the names of the ladies who worked there) made Taipei a fantastic stop despite my being under rather some stress at the time. Their advice helped me make the most of my stay, while the hostel was clean, with a great atmosphere, easy to sleep and socialize, great food nearby. Can't recommend enough.

This was my first time in Taiwan as well as my first time travelling alone for about a week. This hostel is perfect for travellers who want to other travellers as much as they want a comfortable and well located place to stay. Beds are super comfy, the living room is great gathering place, the hot showers always worked and the staff was always ready to attend to anyone's needs. Kat will help you with anything (she can also teach you a few words in Greek). Will definitely stay here again!

There was rarely somebody at the desk reception and at one time no one before 10am so not easy to ask your questions. There was a constant humidity odor all over the place and the bathrooms were very dirty, so were the showers. Maybe they need more staff. There is not very a good ambiance at the hostel and the front desk guy doesn't even respect the hostel rules, like the silence in the rooms after 11pm. Moreover the rooms are freaking hot and the fans make a hell of a noise.

hostel bathroom are a bit run down and teh shower were leaking badly when I was there. However most of the staff are really nice and helpful. Also beware of the cat, not a problem at all for me but could be a problem for travellers with allergy

Perfect place. My initial plan was to stay only two days and I stayed 10 days in total. The name of the hostel can't be better, I met many people there, the staff is awesome, sharing drinks and foods and also good plan to visit the city, I definitely recommend this place, one of the best in Asia (I’m traveling in Asia since 7 months). The location is close to two subway stations, convenient shops, night market and the riverside for a walk. You want to visit Taipei and met people, go there ;)

I think the place can be better managed in terms of tidiness and cleanliness. The kitchen is really messy and the most disgusting thing is the microwave. It was really oily and dirty when I tried to use it and of course I was disgusted so I didnt. There was also a mosquito in my room so I had a really unpleasant sleeping experience.

This place has two kinds of mattrasses, very good and very bad. Get the good one before your neighbor arrives! Check the toilet paper before you sit down, tends to be absent. Prepare for a cold shower. The shower room incessantly floods part of the living room. Funny little creatures in the kitchen.
