This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I have stayed there for 3nights at private ensuite. Its located just next unit to Taipei Backpackers in an apartment. Its like a homestay to me and furnishing are quite nice too. Its close to Ximenting station just about 6mins walk. You can use the computers inside the hostel for common use and there is even a weighing scale for you to weigh your luggage before you depart. However the staircase to Taipei Backpackers at unit 113 is narrow and steep not recommended if bringing elderly person. If staying at private ensuite you don't have to take stairs as it is an apartment.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Plus: (1) Can't fault the location: the place is surrounded by restaurants and many of them will offer you an English language menu.
(2) they also have on hand spare shampoos and other odds and ends which are useful for the disorganized traveller.
Minus: (1) I missed there being a decent lounge area. The one by reception is really too small.
(2) My room - a private double - felt a little small too.
Overall, I would recommend it for a short stay traveller.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The staff are outstanding! They made homemade cookies everyday and shared them. They were so friendly and nice.
They helped me prepare my itinerary for a day trip in Taipei.
They let me change my bed from the 6 bedded room to the 4 bedded room. The 6 bed room was very noisy, the matteresss were super thin and I couldn't sleep very well.
The room with 2 bunks was much quieter.
The laundry is great and they will keep your luggage if you make a long trip and plan to return to Taipei before heading home.
It's a great hostel. I totally recommend it to anyone who needs a home away from home in Taiwan.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I had a pleasant stay there with my friend. The location is quite good as the hostel is close to almost everything we needed such as convenience stores, food stores.. some even opened throughout the nite in which we can have our supper =) It's also easy to find these places as the map of the area near it is printed behind the namecard. The cleanliness is superb! =) And the owner was very friendly towards us showing us the ways to some places. Very thoughtful too as we are suppose to check out by 12pm but our flight is at 8.50pm. She allowed us to store our bags at a storage room till late so that we can do more sight-seeing before leaving =) In a nutshell, this is a great place to stay =)
