Liked: Super affordable hostel that's really close to the MRT station. Jean, the staff on duty, was extremely helpful and friendly.

Disliked: The pillows and blankets, while they looked clean and spotless, didn't smell too fresh. There also isn't any air-conditioning in the common room, which can get quite stuffy in summer.

Liked: Jean, the manager, and the staff are super friendly and fun to talk to

Disliked: I wish there was air conditioning in the common area. It can be unbearable at times because its so hot, so instead of hanging out with people in the common area, i just stay in my room during the times theres air conditioning (in the dorm room).

Liked: The manager, Jean is a fabulous lady. I didn't feel like having met her for the first time, since she was very frank and friendly. It was fun to talk with her both in English and Japanese(she speaks good Japanese. it may be kept as a secret ?? Sorry, Jean=)), She always tried to help us giving us detailed information we needed. The room was clean and cozy. I am sure that i will stay here again when I come back to Taiwan.

Liked: Great location - close to MRT, 7-11 downstairs, lots of great restaurants nearby. The staff are incredibly helpful and great at introducing travelers to one another. The hostel was incredibly clean and the beds very, very comfortable.

Disliked: The AC is online on after 8pm and only in the rooms, so it can get pretty hot.

Liked: The hosts were extremely helpful and friendly. They were always ready to go the extra mile to help guests, give us travel advice and interact with us. They always did their best to make sure that their guests felt comfortable. It also helped that the subway station (metro) is within a 5 mins walk from the hostel. Moreover, there are many places to get food from within 1-5mins walking radius from the hostel. Very convenient. By far one of the most pleasant stays I've ever had in a backpackers hostel.

Disliked: N.A.

Liked: Great location, just a short walk from the MRT. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The place is clean and the beds are VERY comfortable. There is bread and tea available each morning for breakfast. Easy access to and from the airport as well.

Disliked: The only negative I had was the shower room. The shower room is mixed (co-ed) which wouldn't be a problem for me, except that there is not a place in the shower stalls to put your dry clothes to change into. The options are either to bare all in front of whoever is in the room or hope your clothes don't get too wet with you while in the shower.
