This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Clean room and value for money. The only thing is the wifi doesn't work on the first day.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Cosy decorations with very simple and basic facilities, towel and toothbrush stuffs are only provided with a additional charge.
I didn’t have a chance to meet the hostel owner during my entire stay, everything was with the security downstairs (their very nice though), a bit inconvenient if you wanna ask for some concierge services, etc.

Location is good, 5mins walk from JianTan station and Shilin night market is just steps away, next to convenience store too (7-11); a bit overpriced overall.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Satisfy.. it's only take about 8 ~ 10minutes (walking) from Jiantan MRT and the night market is just opposite (not more then 5mins), don't have to worry when you feel hungry at night!! The rest just like others backpackers comments, will be stay again when next visit to Taipei. Appreciate if there is some hanger for clothes in the bathroom. :)

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Stayed 5 nights in a double ensuite room. Looks exactly like the photo on the website. Room is small but comfortable for 2, clean and has a fantastic mountain view. Good location, just opposite the Shilin Night Market and 3 mins walk to the Jiantan MRT station. However, the apartment block the unit is situated in is old and dodgy looking, the lift lobby is in dire need of a good facelift and it gives an uneasy feeling on first impression. All said, would not mind a repeat stay in the same room.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I stayed in Fun Taipei Backpackers on from the 6th to 12 dec 2011. Kevin who is in charge is very friendly and prompt in answering all the questions that i sent via email.
Though the room isn't very big, it's very clean, cosy and it feels like home. It's very near to Jiantan MRT station and Shilin Night market. My friends and I went there almost every day.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Generally, Fun Taipei Backpackers is a really good place for budget travellers. You can certainly see the value of your stay as this place is just so convenient for you to travel around. Besides that, with the amount of money you pay, you actually get all the facilities that makes your stay so convenient. The 7-11 beside the building and the MRT station that is so near are the two best things I like about this accommodation. If I really need to give some negative feedbacks, the only 2 things I hope it will improve are (1) the air con is kinda noisy and poor sound prove from the street, and (2) there is no hook in the bathroom for us to hang our towels and clothes. Overall, I still think it is worth staying at Fun Taipei Backpackers and will recommend to my friends.

I've a very enjoyable stay in Fun Taipei Backpackers. The room was exactly the same as the picture shown. Room was well decorated and the facilities were very good with hair dryer, fridge, TV and etc. It was within walking distance to Jiantan MRT and Shilin night market. There was 2 convenient shops nearby too. The staff in charge, Kevin was very helpful in providing information to us. I'll definitely stay there again next time I go Taipei.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

it was a pleasant stay at Fun Taipei Backpackers hostel although we were not too sure where we were heading to at first as our room were located in an apartment where many stayed there. Th apartment itself was old, and the elevator looked pretty worn out so i was worried at the first glimpse of the lobby that led us to our accomodation but when we opened the door, we were dumbfounded by the interior of our stay. It was furnished with adorable furnitures and was very complete in terms of neccesities. There were a kettle, bowls, extra matress and everything a traveler need to keep oneself cosy and comfy. The location of the hostel is also very strategic, 5 minutes walk to Jiantan MRT station and 15 mins walk to Shilini night market so it was uberly convenient for us. Overall, i enjoyed my stay there very much and would definitely recommend this to other backpackers out there.
