Good - 1. Strategic location, just 5 minutes away to from the mrt station and one station away from the taipei station 2. Cheap 3. Free Wi-Fi Bad 1. Shared hairdryer 2. Need to extra pay for air-con for double room (others I'm not sure ) 3. Dusty room, I doubt they never clean and check the room condition before...

I have been staying here for like a year, actually in a one of the dormitories though I'm working in Taiwan. Dormitories have windows and bathrooms which one of the staff always keeps sanitarily clean. They also have a public living room with sofas & TV & AC in summer, and a terrace where we can smoke and wash &...

Air-con only allowed to switch on between 11pm-7am. Room SMELLY due to poor ventilation. Toilet always not clean. Many leftover in the toilet eg. towels, soaps, shampoo, shavers etc. Cleaner did not clear them away. Overall it is an unhygienic place to stay. Far below expectation. Not even worth the cheap price of NTD300/night. Very rude staff.

This is a review of both the Meeting Place Hostel and the Taipei Hostel. Meeting Place was my first of two hostels that we stayed in Taiwan. We left this one to go to Taipei Hostel because it was 50 cheaper per dorm bed. Both have good and "bad". 1st good at Meeting Place- great hostel vibe. Lots of cool...

I stayed in a very small single room for about five weeks so those staying in the dormitory part of the hostel may have slightly different experiences. This seems to be the most inexpensive hostel in Taipei. It has to be at least 40 years old too. Some of the bathrooms are in need of some repairs but they were...

Taipei Hostel is not located on a main street, which can make it harder to find initially. The location does help to keep the street noise to a minimum. Private rooms here with free wifi are a bargain when compared to a hotel room in the same area. If booking a room or space using the shared bathroom, bringing your...
