We have the best location in downtown Taipei!!

We're located next to Taipei 101 (the tallest building in the world) and inside the biggest night market in Taipei (Tonghua night market).

There are famous bars and clubs nearby and it's a convenient to walk to the metro station and bus stop. Get ready to experience authentic Taiwanese culture!

Our hostel has two buildings located next to each other. Before you book, please read the descriptions of the different places.

Hostel: In this building, we provide mixed dorm rooms and private rooms. None of the rooms has a bathroom inside - bathrooms are shared. There is a big common area where you can hang out with friends.

Studio: In this building, each room has a bathroom inside. In each room, we also provide TV with cable, Internet, fridge, and washer. Here we don't provide a common area, making it suitable for guests who need more privacy.

If you book a private room with a shared bathroom, you'll be in the hostel building. If you book the private room with a bathroom inside, you will stay in the studio building.

We provide coffee, tea and toast all the time in the hostel building for all of our guests.
Prices are per person per night.
