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.

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.

    I loved the cozy and calm atmosphere of the lounge. Honestly, I could spend the day curled up in one of the comfy chairs and read a book from their library. The bedsheets smelled newly washed, were very fluffy and comfortable. The shared bathroom was spotless! They even had bathroom swag like cotton pads for the face, hair ties, and panty liners. The girls' bathroom had great lighting, perfect for makeup. They know what girls need ;) Would definitely stay here again if I'm in Taipei!! :)

    One of the top hostels. Forced to wear their slippers..not a fan..But will stay here convenient & clean. No food or drinks allowed in the room. I love this..people should eat only in the kitchen to avoid bugs.

    Wow. Great amenities for a hostel. Very clean and cool design. Free tours and breakfast service. Wifi worked good. One of the best hostels I've stayed in a while. New and you can tell they gave a big budget. Social aspect is so so from what I could tell. Didn't see many Western travelers. Location main station is great.

    This was definitely one of my best hostel experiences! First of all, the location is perfect, super close to the station. My room was SO cozy and clean, and the lounge/hangout/bar area was also really warm and welcoming. The girls working there were really sweet. When i was checking in, I mentioned to Skye (who was working at the front desk) that I was traveling alone. She quickly invited me out with her and some other girls at the hostel and we had a really fun evening! A+ A+ A+

    Stayed for 6 nights during 1st trip to Taipei in a private room, which was clean and cozy. Breakfasts were delicious and overall Hostel environment was pleasant and welcoming. All reception staff were knowledgeable and eager to answer our many questions re: things to do and logistics for same. In particular we dealt frequently with Sky, Lily and Ping who went above and beyond in making our experience a positive one. Their amiability really made our trip and we can’t thank them enough!

    We had an amazing stay at Star Hostel. The location of the hostel is perfect since it’s right by Taipei main station. They have different types of breakfast each day with fruits and a Taiwanese dish. Bedrooms and facilities were super clean! The common area is also very nice and they offer a lot of activities. We totally recommend this hostel!

    I stayed in a private room and in a mixed dorm. The private was amazing, great value for money. Clean, comfortable. Highly recommended. The dorm had comfortable beds with heavy curtains to block light, power point and light which were convenient. Bunks were stable and not creaky, unlike many hostels I’ve stayed in! Only negative is that the latch on the door is quite loud- I’m a light sleeper and was woken whenever someone went in or out. Free breakfast and free snacks were great.

    An excellent choice for staying in the central Taipei area, and the location is about as convenient as it gets for getting to and from Taoyuan airport. Common areas can get quite crowded at times, but they are still very nice places to spend time. Would definitely recommend overall for travelers to Taipei!!

    This hostel is THE BEST I have ever stayed at. It's also the largest I've ever stayed at. I was amazed by the atmosphere as soon as I walked in. There are plants everywhere and an instant feeling of cleanliness and eco-friendliness. This hostel has everything you could ever want from a place to stay. Great bedromm and bathroom facilities, an amazing open lounge area, and even free breakfast. If it's your first time to Taipei you should definitely try local breakfast once or twice though

    Great location of the hostel, helpful and friendly staff, clean and fresh facilities/dorm room. Comfy bed with bed lamp, outlets, curtain and a big locker (same key card use for the room as for the locker). Well equipped guest kitchen to use and a nice lounge area to eat, read, watch movie or just rest. Nice breakfast included and free water to fill up your own reusable bottle. You are also provided with own slippers to use. I absolutely recommend and will use again for my next visit to Taipei.
