    Very clean and the staff were so great! Location is very convenient for day trips in and out of the city. The atmosphere is very relaxing however this is one of the quietest hostels I’ve stayed in and I’ve stayed in a lot! I travel solo and this trip I didn’t mind the quiet however if you want to meet people and have any kind of social vibe this probably isn’t the hostel for you. But I really enjoyed it on this occasion. I would stay here again because the location and quality of the rooms

    Wonderful chilled hostel in an excellent location (very close to Taipei Main Station). What made this hostel stand out the most was the perfect cleanliness of both the shower rooms and the bedrooms. The staff were extremely helpful and kind. I wish I could have stayed here again, but unfortunately it was fully booked! This is the best hostel I stayed in on my trip to Taiwan.

    Very modern, clean, friendly staff, good free breakfast and overall had a very pleasant stay at Star Hostel :-) The only thing I would have loved personally is some natural light in the dorms.

    It was packed away at a quiet area however close walking distance away from the local mass rapid transport. However do note that it's up on a building amongst with another hostel by the same building I believe. There are some food located near the area and also a night market about 15mins walk away. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Standard cleanliness of the common shower and toilet, also the bed sheet is good as new too! Highly recommended for its value though!
