Great location and comfortable. Wish there were some shelves or drawers to put stuff away for our slightly longer stay.

This is the highest-rated hostel in Taipei for a good reason. It's located close to the subway, and there is a nice area for breakfast and friend-making downstairs. The only thing l could've used would have been somewhere better to hang my clothes so they could dry.

One of the top hostels ever
Now that I've checked into another hostel at my next destination, I have a new appreciation for how great Meander was. I've been traveling for 7 months and it's RARE That you look forward to returning to your hostel at the end of the day. Unfortunately I usually try to avoid spending time at my hostel. Reasons you should stay at Meander: - The way the beds are set up with curtains and your own shelf and personal lighting is so cool! You have as much privacy as you want and can still sleep when others need the light on in the room. - They take security seriously with key card entry everywhere, including for your own locker! - The ground floor common space is probably the largest, best designed hostel space I've ever seen. It really cultivates a social atmosphere. - All the amenities you need: laundry, big nice clean kitchen, shared computers, shared books - The bathrooms are AWESOME. Great showers with good pressure and hot water, and plenty of space to change afterwards. - Breakfast included. It's not the best, but hey it's free. Including coffee would be a nice touch. - Staff was so great! The only 'miss' during my stay was that on Sunday morning the cleaning staff came into the room in the morning while people were still sleeping to start changing some of the other beds. They left the door open and made a lot of noise, which was annoying since it was even before the check-out time and a lot of us had gone out Saturday night and were tired. Not a big deal though!

Fantastic experience
This was my first time staying at a hostel, so I was nervous, but after my time at Meander, I would gladly return. Sunny, the receptionist, made me feel comfortable. She gave me a tour of Meander and pointed out how things worked. My 4-person room (606) was spacious, clean, and felt new. The in-room locker is big enough for a laptop but was not big enough for my backpack. There were three locks between the lobby and my room: one leading to the stairwell, one from the stairwell to a corridor of Meander rooms/bathrooms/showers, and one from that corridor to the room. All three doors and the locker were RFID. My bunk had a light, power outlet, and small shelf; the bunk's curtain was thick and blocked light well. If I remember right, the mattress was somewhat thin foam. It was fine once I was lying down but when crawling around I could feel the underlying wood. I think the most unique/useful (at least among hostels I stayed at on this trip; nobody else had this) part about Meander was the attraction board, listing 20 things to do in the area/day trips. Not only were they marked on a map, there were descriptions, travel instructions, and things to look out for. There was also a daily activity board - I don't think Meander ran most of the activities, but it was nice to have pointers to things to do. Many of my fellow hostelers seemed to be Westerners.
