  • Banana Hostel Cool was fairly easy to find (detailed instructions!), the facilities were nice, location good (close to the MRT and also in walking distance of a lot of Taipei's sights), and the staff friendly and helpful. Really my only complaint would be that the AC was largely unused and, coming from northern weather, it was a pretty uncomfortable temperature for me. But overall definitely recommend the Banana Hostel.

  • The mattress is a bit soft and the stairs climb up to the bed is a bit high. Need more shelf to put toiletries. MRT exit 3 is better than 2 especially when it is raining.

  • I really enjoyed my stay at bananas. Staff is always friendly, helpful and attentive. It's not a party hostel, mostly it will be quiet after 11p.m. Cooking and drinking together in the (by the way very nice and clean) kitchen fits more to my travel concept anyway. And oft course the Party is outside in Taipai City! The Location is also quite good, you can reach Evers Attraktion easily with MRT or a short walk. Would definitely come back!
