Liked: Formosa101 has a perfect location, 10 mins away from Taipei 101 and its respective Metro station. A night market is just across the street and you can get there delicious food when you come back from a long daytrip. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere at the hostel is excellent. It is easy to meet other travellers at the shared areas or during breakfast. They have a guitar, lots of books and travel guides, information about interesting spots in and around Taipei. I enjoyed my stay at this awesome Hostel in this wonderful city and was sad that I had to leave.
