It’s not all about what you see or eat, it’s about how you feel during the trip and what you’ll remember afterwards! Socket Hostel offers you the best value for backpackers in Taipei City.

Socket Hostel is the best place to stay if you want to eat out, see live entertainment, enjoy numerous pubs, cafes and restaurants, see local attractions, and in other words enjoy the real Taipei. Dorm, twin, and double rooms as well as 4 private rooms are available as your options. Soft mattresses with clean linen in the rooms, brighten bathrooms with hot shower, and a cozy communal space with free internet access and big tables are provided. Not to mention that travel guides and maps of the city are left at your disposal at all time.

Not sure where to go yet? We organize free and cheap daily activities like walking tours, bike tours, pub crawls, museum visits, and day trips to places like Yeliou Special Scenic Area, Miao-kow the Keelun night market, Jioufen and more, so that you can experience the city in depth in the easiest and safest way!
