Close to the bus stop and a great place to have a solid night's sleep before flying home early the next day.
On Top has poor acoustics. External sounds loudly travel past all the outward facing rooms and the walls are very thin (you can hear your neighbours snoring, coughing, and so on). Bring ear plugs (and I say this as a heavy sleeper). The bed wasn't too comfortable either. But if you want to stay on top of a pool hall and bar, and have it large, this place is the bomb.
Amazing views, stimulated our souls and drew us in to the wonders of Fiordland. Oh to live in Manapouri (during the summer)!
After our hire car booking was cancelled at the last minute, one of the staff was SUPER helpful in helping us arrange a replacement car with a local firm. Fantastic service that really saved the day for us!
Not surprisingly for an ex-jail, the security was excellent. The super-thick walls and door kept all the sounds out so you are guaranteed a quiet night's sleep.

Great location and helpful staff. Capsule hotel isn't quite accurate - maybe closet hotel describes the rooms better ;-) My room was surprisingly large but the bed was squeezed into a corner and anyone over about 175cm tall would have found it difficult to stretch out.
A colourful, friendly hotel in a super convenient location in downtown Taipei. The staff are really friendly and helpful, this is a great place to stay.
Located in a diverse and funky (at least funky for Singapore) neighbourhood. The 24 hour checkin was great. Really appreciated staff offering to help us with travel plans around Singapore (we didn't even have to ask them!). One gripe - the music played on the desk stereo - too much Coldplay and their ilk. But that's just me being a snob. Of the three places I've stayed in Singapore, this was the best by far.
Has the stink of stale cigarette smoke you associate with such venues in Japan, but otherwise did the job, albeit in a very compact way (ie the room and shower were tiny).
The only internet available is Softbank (subscription required). Boss is friendly and our room was very comfortable. A cheap and easy way to get your , if that is what you want. There is also a hot tub.
handy location. cozy hostel. nothing to complain about. would stay there again. good wifi.

I spent a very pleasant 4 nights at the Hobart Hostel and would be more than happy to return.
Mark was very friendly and helpful
Yeeeahhh, not bad, eh
We have stayed in many hostels the world over and this is one of the best. Not only is the building one of the most charming and cozy you could ever dream of, the owners are incredibly friendly, going the extra length to make sure that your time in Tokyo is that little bit better. If you plan on staying in Tokyo, do yourself a big favour and book a room at Toco. A truly special hostel.
'Authentic' hutong location, not too far from the subway. The neighbourhood has a good mix of sights and restaurants and has plenty of character. There is some dude there whose job appears to be nothing more than playing online games, but he will arrange transportation for you if you ask.
We were upgraded to the '3 star' hotel on the 10th floor. It has been recently renovated and is cosy and quiet. And check out the Everest Club on the 4th floor for a good curry.
This was the only place available when I looked the day before leaving. Location is not too central, but being next to the MRT station makes up for that. Some long term residents appear a little too comfortable, spreading their gear all over the dorm. Not a bad place, all things considered.
A quiet and reasonably priced hostel that is well located for exploring Taipei.
Be prepared to get woken up at ungodly hours by drunken revellers rejoicing in the street. Other than that, it was a great place to stay.
We arrived at 0530 and were told to come back at 1430. That is fine, but when we came back at 1430 our room wasn't ready and the poor guy at the desk was swamped by other people trying to check in.
We had the misfortune of staying here on two of the three hot days that Oxford has in any given year. Ventilation in the hostel is very poor and as a result, the interior felt like a sauna. There are no fans in the rooms, common areas or kitchen and the place warms up very easily. Otherwise not a bad joint.
The bar guy was awesome and friendly.
It was a little bit more expensive than what we would have liked to pay, but that said, there was nothing to fault about the place, especially the location and the friendly staff (Martin). We enjoyed staying there.
Some other people have complained about bed bugs - we did not have a problem. The bathroom could have been cleaner (or even cleaned once in the four days we were there) and we found an unusual and unpleasant surprise under our bed, fortunately just as we were leaving.
