    I absolutely loved this hostel. It has everything you could possible need at an amazing price. I’ve traveled a lot and this has been my #1 favorite landing spot. The staff were all inviting; the facility was spotless; the icing on the cake was a free and filling breakfast!

    Great hostel in a great location. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The dorm was spacious and had electronic lockers. Each bunk had a light, power sockets, shelf and a privacy curtain. I never had to wait for the bathroom or shower. My only two concerns are that the hostel doesn’t really have a social culture. Most people just stick to themselves. Also, perhaps add another washing machine. I had to wait a while. Overall though I’d definitely recommend staying at Star Hostel.

    Pretty much perfect hostel, really. Beautifully designed. Breakfast was amazing. My only wish is that it was just a bit more social for solo travelers.

    Overall, Star Hostel is great! I would just recommend that the language on the confirmation page information detailing the date and time deadline for cancellation clearly states the specific time zone - I live in the US, and when I saw CST, I instantly thought Central Standard Time and didn't even know the name for Chinese Standard Time. Star Hostel did offer to refund me the cancelled day that I did have if I could get a time stamp from the website, which the website refused to provide.

    Beautifully designed hostel with smiling staff, let down only by a lack of atmosphere. Although some events are organised, they didn't seem well attended and most people in the common area mind their own business / are only interested in their phones. The hostel should encourage people to disconnect from technology and engage with other travellers. If you're a solo traveller keep this in mind, for couples or groups though you'll probably really like this place.

    Really enjoyed staying at Star Hostel. It is possibly the nicest hostel I have ever stayed in. However, it is not the most social hostel and I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for solo travel. While I did make friends at the hostel to do things with it was harder then other places. The location while convenient to public transit, is not the nicest to wonder around, so it depends on what you are look for. The diy Bubble tea event was amazing.

    A really lovely hostel, clean, comfortable, pretty. Not very lively, the music was louder and more upbeat during the day. Probably more like a hotel with a common area than a hostel. The tour of the nearby night market was great! The bar doesn't open till 9 and only sells craft beer (which is delicious). Super handy location. As a solo traveller I'm not staying here again for my second stint in Taipei as it's not the best people meeting hostel. But would recommend if travelling in a group
