We are located 7 minutes walking distance from Ximen Metro exit 6, surrounded by banks, convenient stores, night market and shopping. We’re also 15 min away from Longshan Temple and the Monka district, which is one of the oldest and most historical parts of Taipei.

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.

    Great hostel with awesome amenities. All of the power outlets were already adaptors for international plugs, and each bed had a light and power outlet, as well as a privacy curtain. The common area was open 24/7 and had a laundry machine and dryer if you need. Staff were friendly and accommodating.

    I have stayed at Meander twice, and both times were great! They have a luggage room to leave your stuff if you arrive early, and are very helpful if you want food reccomendations or places to visit, as well as information for getting to the airport. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and secure (with a little locker for valuables). They have body wash, shampoo, and conditioner, and you can rent towels. It's close to Ximending, and really just a great place to stay!

    Nice, clean hostel - very welcoming and the staff were great with lots of information about the area. Rooms were more like a hotel. Hostel is big has activities if you wanted to meet other people. Not a party hostel but has a chilled out atmosphere which is friendly. A little expensive but seems comparable to other hostels in the area and location is fantastic (5-10min walk to Ximen station and shops and markets near) so good value for money. We are going to stay here again it was so nice :)

    Excellent hostel, clean, well-located in Ximending, and has friendly and helpful staff. It also does guided tours of the city, Hannah and Cen Cen were very lively tour guides. If you need a haircut, Megan is also on hand on Sundays. Definitely the prefect hostel for anyone staying in downtown Taipei.

    At first it was a bit difficult to find it but when u do it has an amazing location just a 3 min walk from the ximen walking area which is sort of a newer night market. The staff was incredibly welcoming and friendly and made you feel just like at home. The atmosphere was just at the weekend great but I guess that's almost everywhere in Taipei like this. Slept in the 6 bed mixed dorm. Would have whished for more toilets, a bigger safe (laptop did not fit) and maybe better breakfast!

    1 km away from the nearest entrance of Greater Taipei dedicated cycling path (at Dadaocheng Pier), it’s a great place to stay for those who cycling round Taiwan with Taipei as the first stop. The location to nearest Taipei MRT exit (Exit 6, Ximen Station. About 10 minutes on foot) can be a problem for those who are hauling a heavy bicycle suitcase along the way-oh did I tell you that you may deposit your suitcase if you make Taipei as your finish and living in the same hostel the last day?
