Excellent location walking distance to Ximen station, but just far enough to be nice and quiet. Lots to see and do around. Modern and very nice hostel. Staff were extremely friendly. One of the most comfortable hostel beds I've had so far. Nice breakfast in the morning, just wish it started a bit earlier, even if they just left out some toast for those who need to leave early. Nice common areas, everything was clean. My only complaint was that the other guests in the dorm were quite disruptive, turning on the lights and talking very loudly around 4am every night I was there. I realize this is beyond the hostel's control, but still dampens the experience. Overall would recommend, though there are cheaper hostels, this one is definitely worth the money.

This is the nicest hostel I've been to by far. Very modern and comfortable, with a number of amenities and touches that I never even thought to look for in a hostel. The upscale experience starts as soon as you check in, Where you get a short tour, including map of nearby recommendations. It's more expensive than some other hostels in the area, but far nicer. Room type: Mixed room of 6 Lockers • Size: About the size of an airline personal item • Access: Via the same keycard used to access the rooms Bed • Bunk type: Independent cube • Light in bunk: Y • Outlet by/in bunk: Y • Area to hang towel: Y • Bunk curtains: Y • Set up bedding yourself: N • Break down bedding yourself: Y Bathrooms • Number: Multiple stalls per floor. Shower are individual rooms (not stalls), and each has a separate area for the shower vs an area to keep your stuff dry • Combined toilet/shower: N • Hair Dryers: Y • Bathroom shampoo/conditioner/body wash: Y, as well as additional other items like moisterizer, bobby pins, hair ties, q tips, etc Common Area: Variety of table and couch seating. Also a dart board and foosball table. This was probably the most social hostel I've been to in Taipei Amenities • Included towels: N, available for rent • Included sandals: Y • Included breakfast: 8-10am includes bread + spreads, buns, porridge, and fruit Misc • Laundry: Coin operated • Elevator: Y, but it starts on the 2nd floor • Location: Excellent - the Ximending area is one of the most popular in Taipei Value: Good - more expensive than a lot of hostels in Taipei, but you get a lot for your money Notes: Front desk employees there until 11pm. Toilets have heated seats, and bidets! Toilet paper is half decent, something I've never seen in a hostel before! Top opportunities for improvement: Hand dryers in bathroom, larger lockers

It was my first time staying in a Hostel and everything just go beyond my expectation. Prompt reply from the customer service through fb messenger. They even help me to receive a parcel before my arrival which is really kind of them. What I enjoyed the most would be the shower facility. Very clean shower, high water pressure & great amenities provided eg: shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, shower cap, hair pin, cotton bud even pantyliner. Clean toilet and each of them comes with a smart bidet toilet seat & sanitizer dispenser. I stayed in a female dorm of 8 space is a bit limited but it is ok for me. Lift on the first floor so you need to carry your luggage but not an issue for me. Location about 10 mins walk from Ximen station exit 6 mostly flat surface.

I stayed at the Meander Hostel for most of my 12 day stay in Taiwan. It was the best hostel I've stayed in. The staff is friendly and welcoming, and the large common are makes it very easy to meet fellow travellers. Nadia helped to answer my questions via email before coming, and was so kind and friendly during my entire stay. I will definitely stay here again the next time I come to Taipei. The location is also very convenient. Ximending is a lively, vibrant neighbourhood.

To be honest, I didn't expect much when I booked this hostel, as I was just looking for a cheap place to stay in Taiwan. So I was even more surprised when I arrived at the hostel and everything exceeded my expectations! Since I checked in around midnight, no one was there to greet me, however, the team had left me very precise information on how to settle into the hostel, so my whole arrival experience was completely hassle-free. What impressed me the most was the tidiness of the entire hostel: the common room, rooms, and bathrooms (!!) were all very clean! The fact that everybody has to wear slippers indoors probably plays a huge part in that and is, therefore, a very good idea. :) All employees are extremely nice, professional and speak very good English, which matters a lot to a non-Mandarin speaker like me. They also do their best to introduce their guests to activities and sights in Taiwan. Lastly, I would also like to emphasize the great location of the hostel, situated in the fun and young neighborhood of Ximen. When the coolest restaurants and shops are right next door, it is hard to get bored. In addition, the MRT station is also only a 5 min walk from the hostel. Overall, I really enjoyed my stay at the Meander Taipei Hostel and would definitely stay there again. Xexe!
