Good 7.6 From 60 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Accessible and Convenient
We stayed here last March 1 to 4,2019 and we booked a double bed with a private bathroom. The crew there was very accommodating and fluent in English. The room was clean and tidy. However, I suggest you to bring your own towel for bath since what they have is just for face towel. The bathroom has hot and cold shower, but no bidet. On the other hand, the bed is really comfy. There is also a shared kitchen with refrigerator and water dispenser. It would be better if there’s an oven though. You don’t have to worry about your food since 711 & Family Mart is just across the street. The location of the hostel is definitely accessible and just a few minutes walk to Ximen Station. Since it is located in Ximending Shopping District, buying stuffs as well as local foods is not a problem. You don’t have to go to other places just to try popular Taiwanese Foods. Famous bubble tea shops are just around the corner and if you plan to visit the Modern Toilet Resto, it’s just a few blocks away from the hostel. Overall, the place is very convenient and accessible. And I would definitely book here if I plan to visit Taiwan again. Haven’t I mention the hostel is like a Barbie House? Yes, it does. And it’s really cute!

Poor 2.0
Clean on the Outside, Bedbugs on the Inside
Check in was seamless, checkout is even easier (just leave). Private bedroom with shared bathroom and common area. The place is "Alice in wonderland" themed and looks nice and clean, however- I was bitten by several bed bugs while staying there. As there is no front desk staff late nights, I had nobody to call and had no way to change rooms. Ended up sleeping on the couch in the common room and left early.

Close to Ximending Area/Ximen MRT & great staff
My bestfriend and I stayed for 2 nights at Taipei City Hostel. We were impressed by the helpfulness of the receptionist. She was willing to accommodate our needs and answer our questions. The double rooms are absolutely lovely! The decor is cute and the rooms clean. Super convenient to explore around Taipei when you're near a MRT and be in a safe area with lots of food places around.

Very Good 8.0
booked the mini single room and it was tiny! it's actually a nice room but just be prepared that it is a really small room with the width of the bed only. if you are not claustrophobic or don't mind the small space in general then it's no problem.
