Good value for the price. However, the hostel smells like STANK! The dorm room especially! It would also be nice to know who's on duty at the front desk.


The Meeting Place is a great place to stay, and really makes up for its name. During my stay Michael cooked twice for everybody (for free). They have a very comfy common area, and a quiet study room as well. Distance to mrt station is very convenient, nightmarket, 7/11, hilife, you'll find everything around. If there's something to improve, it would be the cleanliness in the shower room, but then again it's an incredibly cheap price for a night. I can recommend this place!


Loved this hostel. The staff are great and so are all the people staying there, particularly the long termers. I spent many a lovely evening sitting outside and chatting with the various residents. A very chill vibe throughout and a lot of cool people to meet - it's definitely well-named. Rooms are comfortable and bathrooms are clean. They also provide everything you need (even shower slippers, which I always forget to bring with me!) I will definitely stay here again if I come back to Taiwan.


I strongly "dis-recommend" this hostel. First of all, the sanity is really poor. In the hallway of the hostel, there's a trash box piled with stinky, smelly thrown away clothes. Also, in the room, they don't offer air-condition during daytime and even morning(just after 12AM to 4?), so it's really humid and smelly inside. Furthermore, there's like "Western hippy's bunker". I think the half of the guests are long-term stayer, so you can easily be outsider especially for Asian people.


A good value hostel with fast wifi, clean dorms and nice folks.

One of the best hostels ive been in Asia and probably the best you'll have in Taipei. Atmosphere is nice and Mike(the manager) is a great guy. Nick and Tom that work there are pretty sweet too. Commun area is comfy and good to drink or watch GOT with everyone. Carefull not to give same locker keys to different people :S (happened twice during my stay).


It's so hot in the rooms but eh it's Taiwan and it's worth it, it's a really nice place to live.

the toilet is shared with others which is quite inconvenient , there are a lot long term tenant there and the place is quite messy and dirty


A bit further out of the city, the directions from the station were really confusing at first since there's multiple sets of directions, but easy enough after the first time. Virtually no natural light in the rooms, which suited me fine at night time (the lights work, of course). Great team of staff, especially the manager, with the exception of the rude French girl who checked me in. Very lively, very social, very clean.


Very social great place to meet people


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.
