The atmosphere of the hostel doesn't shout out loud like what u saw in the hostel trend in bkk. Chic, minimal & well-planned. The connection of diff buildings into one gave the hostel a character that is authentic. Situated in the quieter part of Chinatown, it's a good break from the noise yet everything is in walking distance. The little area itself doesn't cater much to tourism which is a bonus to see the real local life in actions & to try out local delicacy. water pressure could be better
Simple and average stay. Nothing much to shout on the environment, it's clean and near to the mrt station. One good choice if you're heading to Yangming Shan or touring around Beitou area. Well, with TWD600 weekday price, there is better and cheaper solution out there. Staffs are passionate though.
I've stayed in 6 different guesthouses in Taipei over my trip and this is my top 2 choice of all. Clean, spacious shower place and community area (something generous in Taipei area), it's close to (at) the city center and mrt yet the place nestled at a quiet location within the chaos of the city. You get the calmness and still, not very far from the city center. The only hostel provide good breakfast over my all other stays. The staff are so enthusiastic with their work. I'll be back, definitely
Staff is great, good location but you might missed it on the very first sight. Need to work more on the cleanliness of the bathroom and toilet, the bathroom on the top floor get clogged easily. It has 5 floors in total, so it might not be a good option if you're carrying big & heavy luggage walking up the staircase.
My top 2 place to stay in Taipei. Clean and intimate place. The GH is located in a condo within the residential area, yet it's not far from city needs, mrt & commercial area. It's small, either a good place to be alone or too close-knit to be alone, not a good place for loud and over friendly traveller. It's more like a home and I had a good time there. Staff are excellent, 3-5 mins to mrt, bus stop right in front of the GH. I will be back for more bananas! hah.
Clean, intimate and cosy place to live in. The owner drives full passion in serving his customer. Although you need about 10mins walk from mrt station to get into the guesthouse, there is bus stop right in front of it. If you are looking for some place away from the chaos of city center or easy access to blue line mrt, this is the place to be in.
