Property Description

Located near the Taipei Main Station where access to the rest of the island is a breeze, Flip Flop Hostel aims to meet two of the most important requirements of all backpackers visiting Taiwan: immediate access to public transit and a clean, warm, and welcoming space.

Not only is public transit (main station of train, bus & metro) just a short five minute walk away, we are also just one street away from the Museum of Contemporary Arts. We also hired a local artist to help us transform this old railway workers’ dorm building into the unique, yet cozy space you see today.

Our hostel is looked after with love and care, includes free WiFi, public kitchen space, fresh ground coffee machine, and has a 24hr, openly accessible lobby to support your travel experience around the clock. We also feature free additional storage and coin-toss washer and dryers to ease the minds of the adventure-minded.

Movie theatre, shopping mall, and supermarket is easily accessible right upstairs from closest MRT station. Head west for a short 10min to check out the century-old historic Taipei North Gate, north for the gourmet Ningxia Night Market, and take a five minute MRT ride to visit popular Ximending. Easy access to these local food and entertainment destinations ensures that all our patrons won’t go hungry and bored. But most importantly, Flip Flop Hostel is owned and maintained by backpackers like yourself. With love and care, we welcome all travelers to stay and share their stories in comfort.

    One of the best hostels that I’ve stayed!! Flip Flop is super clean everywhere, the shared bathroom and the dorm are so clean. It is comfortable to stay there! And everything is well-organised, I love the structure of the bed, especially the locker! It is so useful and convenient! Definitely stay at Flip Flop again when I visit Taipei!!

    This place ws excellent across the board. Comfortable, conveniently located, and well worth the price in every way. Grace was the young lady in charge of the desk when I was there, and she was very sweet, helpful, and friendly. Strongly recommend this place. No complaints or shortcomings of note. Just an all-around solid hostel experience.

    Flip Flop hostel is a conveniently located space in the centre of Taipei, close to the Main station. The hostel was clean and comfortable, and the staff was helpful. The bathrooms were good, but showers could have been a bit better.

    Having no elevator is a big disadvantage particularly when one has a piece of baggage that weighs about 16kg to walk up to the 4th floor.
