3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service
Bathrooms are spacious and clean, pods are comfortable, common areas are nice. Overall, we liked the hostel; however, their clothes dryers are all broken and we spent hours and hours and lots of money doing laundry as a result. Nobody at the front desk warned us about this when we purchased laundry soap. It felt like they were being dishonest.

Well located with nice view
This hostel is easy to reach from Taipei Main Station and railway station to Taoyuan Airport. It is also ideally located for those who wish to explore Ningxia night market and Dihua Street to get to know local foods and culture. Public area is spacious with such a nice view over Jiancheng Park. Option of one dorm bed for two person is available which can save lots of money if you travel as a couple.
