Overview

With one of the largest common areas of any hostel in the city, Meander Taipei is all about sharing stories and making friends with fellow travellers. Tuck into our free daily breakfast before getting to know the local area on one of our walking tours of the neighbourhood. Other daily activities include hiking trips or a cooking exchange. Up on our laid-back rooftop terrace, you can take time out from exploring to enjoy a spot of sunbathing. Get a group together for drinks under the stars in the evening.

Location

We're based in Ximending, the city’s buzzing centre for fashion and entertainment. It's bursting with more than 6,000 stores, cafés and theatres. MRT Ximen Station is a 10-minute walk away, giving you easy access to the rest of the city and major transport hubs. From Taoyuan Airport, you can reach us in just under an hour via the train. Historic sights like the Longshan Temple and the Monka district are both within walking distance. Or head to Huaxi Street Night Market (also known as Snake Alley) to try some tasty street food.

Rooms and Dorms

When you check in, you’ll be given a keycard that opens the front door, your dorm room and your personal storage locker. Dorms are mixed or female-only and bunks come with personal reading lights and universal power plug adaptors. Some private and shared bathrooms have added luxe touches like rain showers, whirlpools and bidets. Book a private room with an en-suite, or splash out on a deluxe double with an in-room bathtub – that’s certainly one for Insta!

Extras and activities

Our sleek, modern interiors look like something straight out of a Scandi design catalogue. Figure out your sightseeing itinerary on the chalkboard map in our lounge or show off your skills at the foosball table in our funky games room. If you’ve been on the road for a while, you’re sure to appreciate our on-site washing and drying facilities.

    OH Meander Hostel - one of my favorite hostels ever. It captures the essence of Taiwanese kindness, friendliness, and hospitality. Love the space - it's so conducive to meeting others. Even though there aren't a lot of travelers right now due to Covid-19, the ones you meet are still great and the staff (Sunny, PJ, & Lin) are so helpful! Also love the location - so close to the Ximen MRT & if you're looking for excitement, you've come to the right place. TY Meander for making me feel at home.

    Best hostel, I ever stayed at! Especially the bathrooms felt like a spa and the breakfast buffet with salad added to that impression. The whole hostel was sparkling clean, staff was great and the location at the fringe of Xiamen pedestrian area was also very good. They have an elevator from the 2nd to the 5th floor and it is very quiet. Well run hostel in a great area with great staff. Must be the first time, I don't find anything to complain.

    Modern design (even the toilets!), super clean and incredibly quiet. Less than 10 minutes from the MRT station and a few steps away from Ximen. Staff is not just helpful, but would always say hello and chit chat whenever you bump into them. Kudos for the "no shoes" policy. Didn't make it to 10/10, but great value for money anyway 😁, because of the spaces (bed "cabins", toilets) which are a bit cramped compared to others. Highly recommended!

    Good stay, very clean hostel, no breakfast, shame the hostel was so empty because of covid but enjoyed my time here. There’s also a barber at the back of the hostel who does great haircuts!

    Would recommend for young travellers. They allow guests in the common area on the ground floor. It is welcoming but probably due to the pandemic the atmosphere was silence lol. Overall a great value for the cheap price. (BTW you must go up stairs to the second floor where they have an elevater for up to 6 I believe).

    I had to check out late and left my room key at the front desk. Now this overpriced dump of “hostel” is trying to fleece me for $200NTD because they couldn’t be bothered to find their own room key. Avoid.
