Jean was a fantastic host. The hostel was easy to find and close to MRT station. Personally, I found the pillow and mattress too flat and soft.

The owner is very nice and helpful. Good location, near the MRT and under an hour to the airport. It does lose a few points for the number of mosquitoes and the one roach i found in my room. However, a good place.

I had such a wonderful experience at Travel Talk. The hostel is so clean, comfortable and cozy. It is in a great location, easy to walk anywhere and lots of food stops in the area. The woman who runs the hostel, Jean is such a kind and helpful person. I extended my stay for two extra nights and she was so accommodating. She was also eager to provide useful information on traveling around the city and country. I will stay here again if I return to Taipei

A lovely hostel with a bright spacious living room. The rooms and bathrooms were really clean and the location offers a nice glimpse into a different area of Taipei. A family run hostel with wonderfully friendly and chatty staff member!

Jean is absolutely the best host :) - the atmosphere is very warm all thanks to her, even for a rather introverted person like me. Rooms are clean and in good condition. The hostel is near Xing Tian Gong MRT. It is also very near an airport transportation bus-stop (both to Taoyuan and Song Shan).

Very nice, if u r leaving from Songshan airport very early in the morning, this place would definitely be the best choice; the lounge is very hospitable, with a piano out there. Staff is enthusiastic and helpful. This hostel should rank atop.

This was my second trip to Taipei and I choose to stay here again because I liked the atmosphere of the hostel. Right below the hostel there's a 7-eleven and it's really convenient. Also the staff are very helpful and friendly.

Great hostel, near the MTR and quite central. The dorm rooms were quite spacious and love how the price also included breakfast which was tea or coffee and toast. The staff were also very helpful, especially Jean who is so nice and friendly. I would definitely stay here again when I go back to Taipei.
