  • We stayed here for 4 nights and the experience was average. There was little interaction between the hosts (except some small talk with Alice) and us, unfortunately. The rooms and toilets are really small. It would be better if the trash was cleared more frequently in the living areas and toilets. As more guests checked in, it felt a little like a cramp house as there were so many people but relatively little living space. The plus side would be its location, near Shilin market and Jiantan MRT.

  • The staff was amazing and made us feel like family. They helped us get where we needed to go. Pretty peaceful despite being located above Shilin Night Market. It is VERY clean and the beds were comfortable. Free tea, coffee and toast. Located across street from MRT, which was super convenient. No red flags. Lockers in common area are too small to fit our whole backpack, but we felt safe leaving them in the locked rooms. Internet was faster than anything we've had!

  • The hostel is located in a great area: Within a working class Taiwanese community and just a few steps around the corner from the local night market. About a kilometer away from one of the tallest buildings in the world; Taipei 101, Nightclubs and Bars. The staff including Natalia are receptive to the guests' needs. They are helpful and friendly; like the rest of the people of Taiwan, when help is needed you're cheerfully assisted. Lots of cool backpackers (travelers) to meet and party with.

  • Took us awhile to find the hostel but other than that, everything else is good! Room was a lot smaller than expected though. Very clean.
