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.

Liked: Geem the manager incredibly helpful and informative and promotes a family atmosphere by introducing everybody. The area is great- near to the airport bus and MRT and lots of shops next to it with everything from cakes and coffee to fruit stalls and supermarkets. A vegan restaurant is in the same block away which is a godsend if you aren't sure what your'e eating and your Chinese is not good. A strip of bars is only 15 minute walk away

Disliked: kitchen was very limited and really just a few things in the dining/ common room.

Liked: I would give even better review to friendliness and helpfulness of the staff than 100 %. Jean is awesome! She helps everyone every way it's possible. If I travel in Taipei again I'm most likely going to stay here again. It is very pleasant to stay here.

Disliked: Location is not quite the perfect one but it's still very convienent. Nearby there are metro lines and bus stops so I could easily travel around Taipei. "Bad" location is definitely not a valid reason to skip this place, since that is just my pickyness.

Liked: The woman running the place was very kind, knowledgeable, and friendly. She also spoke several languages, including English, very well, which was helpful.

Disliked: There is a very narrow staircase leading up to the hostel, and the hostel has an incredibly small sign to designate its existence. It was difficult to find.

Liked: The owner is a very cheerful lady. she has tried her best to help.

Disliked: The stairs are narrow and it's hard to move up and down with the luggage. Air conditioning supply is only from 8 pm to 10 am. The weather is really wet and hot. It's hard to stand if staying indoor. We saw a cockroach.
