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.


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.

    Meander Taipei is absolutely the best hostel I stayed during my trip. I had planned to stay about 3 days there, but ended up staying more than a week. It is clean, safe, well-staffed, well-located (right next to Ximending), vibrant, and populous. All the staff were very helpful and I am thankful, but I want to give especial thanks to Cen Cen. Upon my request, she went through long, tedious search to find me the best price available for staying longer at Meander. Thank you so much!

    I had an amazing experience with this hostel, it is probably the nicest hostel I have stayed in during my two months travelling Asia. Honestly, it feels as nice as a fancy hotel but with the social aspect of an hostel. It was extremely easy to meet people in the (big) common room, everyone is extremely friendly. Especially the staff, Claire, Nadia, Phoebe and every other members were so much fun, helpful and extremely genuine persons, you can’t ask for a better staff. I’m definitely coming back!

    Hard to fault anything here. Great staff who give a lot of great tips as soon as you check in. The rooms are spacious and private, and bathrooms/showers spotless. Location initially seems a bit out of the way when you arrive, but then the Ximening area is amazing to go through at night, and it’s just down the road. Hostel itself seemed quiet when I was there, but it just depends who’s staying at the time. Definitely treat yourself and stay here!

    I have never felt more welcomed at a hostel than when I checked in here. Staff were incredibly friendly, rooms were clean and comfortable. Really enjoyed the free walking tour with Nadia, who is one of the sweetest people on the planet. She went above and beyond! Delicious free breakfast with fruit. Very impressed by everything, would highly recommend
