    I have enjoyed my stay at Duckstay Hostel. I feel safe especially with my stuff. How I wish they would install a bidet on every toilet because not all guests are comfortably clean with just toilet paper. This place is a very good contender and I am looking forward to stay here again.

    I love staying here whenever I come to Taipei. The location is super convenient right near Longshan Temple and lots of good food to eat with the nearby night market. There's a big social area where it's very chill, but it's nice and quiet in the rooms. Plus the privacy curtains here are really amazing. All the security is done with a key you get when checking in and that lets you into the hostel, the rooms, and is the access for your locker so it's super convenient. Would highly recommend.

    Great location and very friendly space. The downstairs area to chill was big and comfy but just lacked any atmosphere whatsoever. You get nice big lockers and the beds are comfy, although ours (B415&416) were right next to the showers and very noisy so try to avoid!

    The only thing I did not like are the thin foam mattresses. Underneath of them there is no bed base. You basically sleep on a wood board which is very uncomfortable during night. Europeans are not used to that. The third night after I arrived, the staff gave me a air mattress which I put underneath the regular foam mattress. I had to approach them several time. Than I was finally able to sleep. Apart from that it is a great hostel. It is very clean and the staff is helpful. There is a big common

    Booked two nights here and ended up canceling my second night. Close to a metro station but not much to do in the area and the station doesn’t have many lines running through it. The facilities at the hostel were meh. The showers smelled strongly of mold and generally community areas felt a bit unclean, and no one used them. If you want to meet people, do not stay here. Also lots of mosquitos inside and I heard a mouse from my dorm bed. Would recommend Star Hostel instead.

    NEVER use this place. Terrible experience. I reserved a room after check-in time. The hostel's page said this was acceptable if I paid an extra fee, and that I would be emailed with my access code to the front door. I was never contacted by the hostel, they did not answer their phone, the door buzzer was broken and I was unable to enter the hostel. After going out of my way to the hostel and attempting to enter for 30 minutes, I had to give up. This hostel does not deserve to stay open

    The worst hostel stay ever. The room was stuffy and smelly. No windows and doubt any of the beds had ever seen daylight. A tiny room with 8 beds in two levels. Narrow walkway and can hardly walked through, not too mention doing any unpacking. The place look tired and lack of maintenance. I was given a mixed dorm which is different from what i booked for, selling beds that they don’t have. I cut my stay short. This place only interested in squeezing profits from guests.
