Property Description

Meander strives to enrich your traveling experience with a number of tours and fun events. Meander offers its own random tours to show you our favorite but not widely known places of Taipei.

Meander Taipei is based in Ximending, which is a traverler’s favorite due to its convenient location. You can find everything you need in Ximending, with over 6000 shops, cafes, tattoo parlors, karaoke, theaters and massage centers. We are located 7 minutes walking distance from Ximen Metro exit 6, surrounded by banks, convenient stores, night market and shopping. We’re also 15 min away from Longshan Temple and the Monka district, which is one of the oldest and most historical parts of Taipei.

We are always looking for fun and interesting people to join the Meander Crew. Part time, full time and work-exchange program available! Monthly rate is also available.

Room was a decent size. We stayed in a private room. Staff were friendly and helpful. Needs a bit of maintenance. Tricky if you have a disability or struggle on stairs. The lift goes from the 2nd floor. The kitchen does not have a hot plate or a stove. Microwave cooking only.

Stayed in 4 room female dorm. Very decent room with clean bed, Locker provided and en suite bathroom. Bathroom water was a little clogged when shower. Initial feeling of the room was a bit stuffy and mouldy but after switching air-con for a day, it felt better.

Meander Ximending is awesome! All staff are fantastic and helpful but a special shout out to Ginny for the tours and social events that she ran while I was there. I got to meet a lot of other solo travelers and had a lot of fun. Especially competing in mahjong tournaments until the early hours of the morning. Another shout out to Ginny for her help when I fell into a bad situation. She was so willing to help and I really appreciated that. I'll definitely stay here the next time I'm in Taipei!
