  • The hostel is situated in a very handy neighbourghood , very close to the Subway and for some excellent food on the nightmarket you just have to cross the road. The hostel is clean and safe, the manager is very helpfull and the securetie is always there. The room is standard with good bathroom and airco ,tv ,fridge ,watercooker ,good space for luggage also!

  • location is perfect, just right outside shilin night market. a 5-10 min walk from jiantan station (red line), it is very accessible! the room is cozy, with a great view of the mountains and nightlife too. Everything is clean, there is even security downstairs. the host came by and was very friendly, and my friend and i were very comfortable there as we stayed for 6 days. the corridor might be a little creepy but its all cool. would stay there again, thanks Fun Taipei for all your assistance!

  • Location was really convenient! Basic necessities are all there. It would be better if a heater was there during the winter to improve the overall stay at the hostel.

  • I booked a room for 2, the room is very cozy for 2. The toilet is very small and quite old, but definitely functional. Small tv, but it's okay. 2 desk were provided, so it's good to put things.The floor gets dirty very easily, luckily slippers were provided. The location is fantastic, just across the street from Shilin night market. The nearest train station is about 10 - 15 minutes walk and is very convenient to most of the tourist attraction in Taipei. I would definitely stay back here again.

  • It was hard to find the location at first, I almost thought it was too a fluke. But when I did find someone with a cellphone to call the location, the staff was polite and helpful about giving me directions and even meeting me outside to greet me. The space is tight, but the people who stayed there were great people from all over the world and we had fun chatting about all our different traveling journeys. Overall it was a great 10 day stay, especially since I was traveling alone on tight budget
