Star Hostel Taipei Main Station is a clean and contemporary spot for you to lay your head. We have a greenery-filled lounge with lots of leafy plants and floor seating, so you can chill out Taiwanese style while drinking a cup of free tea. There's even a free breakfast with fresh coffee waiting for you every morning at our café, which turns into a bar serving local craft beer in the evenings. We also hold pop-ups showing off homegrown brands now and again, and organise activities ranging from bubble tea tutorials to dumpling-making parties.


We're a short 7-minute stroll from Taipei Main Station and MRT station, right in the middle of the capital. You can get here on the subway from Taoyuan International Airport in around 40 minutes including walking time. We're around 10 minutes on foot from Ningxia, one of Taiwan's iconic night markets. It's the perfect place to try local delicacies like stinky tofu in the centre of the hustle and bustle.

Rooms and Dorms

At Star Hostel Taipei Main Station, we have dorms with shared bathrooms and minimalist en-suite private rooms. There are also bathrooms with showers just for women. Each bunk has an international power socket – great if you forgot your adaptor – and a curtain to pull across for privacy, as well as free linen for your bed. Your locker will open using the key card for the door and you'll have an elevator to get up to your room.

Extras and activities

For those of you who're up and raring to go at 6am, we'll happily prepare a simple early-bird breakfast. Like to sleep in till lunch? You can grab something to eat at our mini store or cook your own grub in our kitchen. We also organise free city tours, Mario Kart tournaments and movie nights, so there's always something to do. There's free Wi-Fi everywhere at the hostel, as well as a lounge with a computer, so it's easy to Google which nearby restaurant serves the tastiest Taiwanese beef noodle soup.

    This was the most unexpected pleasant surprise ever. The hostel is very clean, has comfortable beds, nice breakfast and probably the most friendly and helpful staff you can find in Taiwan! We had a double bedroom with enough space to put your belongings. Would always come back.

    More than an hostel, a comfortable and pleasant place where the warm and relaxed atmosphere gives peace to the mind and makes it easy to share with other guests a part of the journey. Such cleanliness of the common spaces and such openness of the staff are rare to find elsewhere. If you’re to stay in Taipei there’s no other place to go. I definitely recommend it and I hope I’ll be back again!
