    Stayed for two nights. Overall is a comfort place to stay. Balcony is nice. Toilet smells really bad tho. Drain was blocked at the shower area. Consider the price and environment still a bargain. Easy check out and check in processes. Everything at the floor step.

    Down stair is karaoke...

    the hostel was in the center of Ximen and very easy to access to the area. However downstair was a karaoke place and people were singing all night. Too noisy. No more for me.

    The location is 10/10, the shared space is pleasant, bathrooms are well kept and clean, breakfast is basic but fine and free water and tea/coffee is a good touch. They keep the air con to Arctic conditions during the night though and make sure you bring good ear plugs because the kareoke down stairs goes on till past 1am and it can clearly be heard from bed.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Location is good and convenient but the bathroom and toilet is dirty. This place is very noisy as well both out side and inside. I had one terrible night that someone came in very late and make loud noise open and close door so louder after midnight. Also the last night room was too hot like no air. I return to my hometown with sickness. I really cannot recommend this play to friends or anyone.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The bed was pretty spacious, unlike many hostels I've stayed, the bunk beds were stable and did not make any annoying squeaky noises that was a huge plus. However, downstairs runs a karaoke place and you could hear people sing, there were free ear plugs provided at the front desk but if you are a sensitive sleeper than this not be your ideal place to stay. It was a bearable noise to me and I didn't use the ear plugs. The downside of the hostel was the lack of the restroom and shower rooms, you might have to wait for shower in the morning. If the restrooms are full, I'd just bring everything I need for the day and head out to use the restroom in the MRT, I've done that a few times, luckily MRT isn't far. Very convenient location, and friendly staff, the wifi seemed not always steady for me but overall it's worth the price.

    Hostel staff were amazing and extremely helpful throughout my 5-night stay with them. Hung out with them and some even showed me around the city :) The location of WOW Hostel is perfect. Ximending is filled with good food, drinks, shops and pubs. A mere 3mins walk from Ximen MRT Station is the key here. With 2 major lines intersecting at Ximen MRT Station, it makes it convenient to travel anywhere in Taipei. The common is a great place to meet other travelers and hang out when you need a break. I love the outdoor area that overlooks the bustling crowds of Ximending. Provides a good respite from all the buzz on the streets. Rooms were clean and sheets were freshly made. The pathway might get a little crammed but it isn't too much of an issue because there're plenty of bed space. Wouldn't feel claustrophobic at all. There are also curtains for personal privacy. Toilets and showers are shared but still clean at all times. Soap and shampoo are provided too! Already missing the hostel staff. Would highly recommend travelers traveling in Taipei to stay with them!
