- “ Very warm hostel. Location is not in the most urban part of Taipei - quiet, few people about, just the right amount of stores nearby - but it worked better for us, in hindsight, than if we had stayed somewhere busier, like Ximending. Also, it's no more than 50 meters from the nearest MRT station so everything else that you need is a few stations away. Staff are very accommodating and can speak English. Wifi is quite fast. Shared toilets and showers are clean (with bidets and tissues).Nice place! ”

- “ Suitable for backpacker and young traveler. Famous XimenDing just 1 stop train distance from LongShan station and 2 stop to Taipei Main Station. Overall stay was satisfied as since you paid for hostel price please do not expect for 5star service. ”

- “ While it was a little difficult to find, mostly because I didn't check the email that was sent me which has a better map than the one on this site, my stay at Mango53 was fantastic. My room, the bathroom and common room were all immaculately clean.The staff, Duck and Abby, were both extremely helpful and friendly. Duck coming back to the hostel on her own time over the lunar new year holiday to make Tang Yeon soup for everyone was amazing and much appreciated. I highly recommend Mango53. ”
