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.

Check out the video in our confirmation email for directions to our hostel!

Superb

love the hostel's services and hospitality. the hostel is super clean, their amenities are plentiful - almost every level has a water station, warm water, etic. The bed is super comfy. I just hope i dont have to climb to second level for bed haha. there are breakfast places and convenience stores around the vicinity. I only managed to find some prized locations around - like the curry rice stall which opens in late afternoons, and breakfast places in the streets.

Not that clean. Had to get a private room due to covid guidelines and tbh it wasn't worth the money. Also I lost a shirt and contacted them multiple times but they didn't even reply up until almost a week later

Private rooms are nice but the dorms lack in cleanliness and the beds were really used out. As for the staff, most are helpful!
