    This place is just perfect. I was travelling solo for 5 days and wow hostel is max 1h walking distance from everything. Super convenient and definitely worth the price. All the facilities looks new and the bed was comfortable too. Never had problem with dirty floors or toilet, definitely sparkling clean. I recommend it so much. I’m not the most talkative person, but the atmosphere felt super welcoming and the staff is always there to help. Really great experience

    I can’t say if it felt like home at the time, but I certainly remember it that way. The handsome and talented Byron, works the desk and, if you're nice may play guitar for you. I saw the staff and some guests sit around and sing or clap along one night. We drank and chatted after closing time. The also beautiful and talented Lisa, (everyone I saw working there was good looking and spoke great English) was a great help navigating the city, and recommending bars, food, etc. Stay here.

    It was a comfortable location, beddings seemed to be private even though there were multiple people in the room. Only thing, I did not pay attention to its actual location, so be aware that it is in the middle of a 24hour and busiest markets in the city. Definitely, recommend to stay and check out the local area...

    The staff are very welcoming and helpful. The complementary breakfast is toast with spreads and you can cook eggs. When booking here request a bunk that isnt on the same wall as the door as they slam and shake the whole wall. Also the hostel plays music in the hallway and as the walls arent connected to the ceiling you get the hostel music and the loud karaoke music from upstairs well into the night. If you can live with a disturbed sleep this place is pretty cool and in a fantastic location.

    Great hostel in a great location with friendly staff. However since it shares a building with a karaoke bar, can get noisy. Was initially informed that there would be breakfast from 8-10 every morning, showed up at 8.30 the first morning and nothing was there yet, showed up at 9.30 the next day and everything was over already.

    If you want somewhere cheap and conveniently located, then I would highly recommend this hostel. However, do note that the ktv downstairs play live music till after midnight. Earplugs are provided FOC though

    Nice clean hostel with friendly staff and great location right in the middle of Ximen. Kind of hard to find (on the 8th floor of a building). Not the best place to start traveling Taiwan (esp as a solo traveler). No social atmosphere at all. You can definitely hear the karaoke bar that’s nearby, but they provide free earplugs.

    Ximen WOW is convenient if you need to be in the Ximen area, but I wouldn't go out of my way to stay at this hostel if I was planning to spend a lot of time at other places in Taipei. It's nice, but not outstanding. The staff are very good and so are the facilities, with the caveat that there are not many outlets in the common areas.

    This hostel was clean, the staff was friendly, and the location was convenient... but I had two of the worst night’s sleeps of my life. You see, there’s some sort of karaoke bar two floors down, and there are old people singing loudly and terribly until 2am. I’m not a very light sleeper and sound doesn’t usually bother me, but something about the acoustics made the singing echo through my mattress, pillow, and earplugs. It was terrible. But otherwise a perfectly nice hostel.
