Mango53 Inn

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

Mango53 Inn is a backpacker's hostel in a 60+ years Taiwanese town house. It is remodeled and carefully preserved the nostalgic air of 50's-60's Taipei in the most historical area - Banka or Monga district. The hostel is surrounded by government-assigned historical sites, especially famous Longshan Temple showcasing traditional Chinese architecture and lively Buddhist-Taoist religious culture in Taipei. Here you can experience traditional religious-centric life, enjoy typical local food, and discover the beauty of 3 temple heritages, all in walking distance.

The hostel is a stone's throw away from MRT Longshan Temple Station, and Wan Hua train station. 7-11, banks, and food stands are nearby. Many sight-seeing spots such as Longshan Temple, Herbal Street, Huaxi Street night market, and Baopilio (Heritage and Culture Education Center) are within 5-minutes walking distance.

Our mission is to provide a budget accommodation for backpackers who love to explore authentic Taipei. We remodeled this prost-WWII red-brick 4-stories town house in nostalgic design to offer friendly facilities including sofa, computer, TV, guide books, kitchenette in the spacious attic as the communal area for guests to mingle with other travelers.

Two out-door terraces (smoking area and laundry area)

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This was my first time to Taiwan and I was so Lucky to find Mango 53 Inn.
The staff was very friendly and so helpful. It is very close to the train station which was an extra bonus. I enjoyed hanging out with other travelers in the upstair lounge area with free coffee and tea with the nice sofas and big screen TV.
I never imagined a Hostel could be this nice. Mango 53 Inn is the BEST !
