    WOW, great spot with incredible facilities! Common room is insanely beautiful. Beds were comfortable and showers were great. They left me some break for breakfast since I had to leave early but everything about this hostel is just incredible.

    Definitely one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at! Everything you could ever think of needing and wanting at a hostel, they have. Your personal locker can be locked with your room key, a nice touch! Staff is super friendly too. The curtains on the bunks in the dorms were almost like blackout curtains. Some of the best sleep I've ever had while traveling!

    Star Hostel is in a fantastic location if you are going to travel by public transportation. Getting there from the airport was a breeze. The hostel is clean and spacious and the beds in the dorm have an impressive amount of privacy. I highly recommend staying here during any visit to Taipei!

    Great central location a few minute walk from Taipei main station. Amazing facilities. A little too big for my liking personally but the hostel was very clean and all the staff were very helpful. Free breakfast and coffee was included too. Would definitely recommend staying here!!

    Best hostel I've ever stayed in! Everything was modern and clean and it was fairly quiet when I wanted to go to sleep early. I have some complaints though about the breakfast (a smaller ones); breakfast starts way too late (even those going to late-morning flights don't have time to eat). Also, if you don't eat white bread or eggs there's not much you can eat. BUT their coffee is the best I've ever tasted in Asia, I would totally be satisfied with just getting the coffee ;)

    The location is excellent. Right next to Taipei Station. The breakfast is great with different menu every day. There are many small restaurants downstair and around the corner. The room is small and can be noisy because next to a construction site and a major traffic area.
