    WOW! This was by far the best hostel I have ever stayed in! From the second you walk in the staff are so welcoming and helpful! The 4 bed dorms have the beds with shelving, lights and curtains which was just great! The atmosphere of the whole hostel is amazing! They have a lovely common area and also an information wall that gives you tips for travelling/activities/food around the area. The free breakfast was quite plain but super delicious. This place also offers free tours around the city! :)

    Best hostel in Taipei to my opinion (and I've been to a few). HUGE common room on the entrance level that is perfect for meeting other travelers. Nice location next to ximen area Wich is full of shops bars and restaurants, while close to met station. Very nice staff, lots of information, about Taipei and Taiwan in general, that can really help you plan your trip. Yes it's a bit pricier than other hostels in Taipei bit it's worth it.

    Clean, personal bunks/lights with comfortable mattresses and usb-based outlets. What more could you ask for? Breakfast is lame (but free!) - but there's also a really delicious breakfast spot right down the street (Xi Ke Lai Breakfast) if you're looking for something good.

    I had such a good time here! Met some really great people, and the hostel was clean and well-managed. The facilities were great and there was plenty of space where you can meet new people. Staff were always helpful, although they had many rules, which felt a bit strict. Overall, it is in a great area with excellent facilities and I would highly recommend staying here!

    The staff are amazing, so kind and full of advices. They also change me dorm as I had trouble to sleep because of renovations near my room. The location is very good! It will be nice that they use the nice roof top area for a bar or something.
