I have stayed in this hostel twice. My first visit was in January 2013. I like this place because it's homely and very clean. The hostel is just a 2-minute walk from the Taipower Building Station MRT station. It has private double rooms for those who want more privacy too. I would definitely stay here again if I return to...

A very comfortable, clean and friendly place to stay. There are many hostels that come of as tacky in terms of decor and style but Parachute hostel in not one of them. The place is tastefully decorated and exudes a quaint charm which gives it a homely and comfortable feeling. The place is less than a 5 mins walk from...

My girlfriend and I sated here in 2012 when this place was still very new. It looked to be owned and operated by a group of young entrepreneurial Taiwanese men and women. The place was clean, comfortable, friendly, and very close to the MRT. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is something that is completely out of their...

Its very small, has no windows and only has space for a hat stand and a little tray.There are only 2 showers and 2X2-3 toilets for the entire hostel. Showers were very unstable with changing from hot to cold, same was...

It is located at Taipower Building Stn (Exit 4), just 10 minutes away from Taipei Main Station (direct line towards Guting) by train. It's hidden between a few mechanical shops...

Pros: friendly helpful staff, very clean, free laundry, very basic breakfast for free, good location, small lockers available Cons: common area is not very comfortable (but there is a nice coffee shop below), 4 bedroom dorm is small and windowless, no secure place if you need to leave luggage, sometimes hard to locate staff. Bottom line: if you are looking...

Stayed for 2 nights in the 6-bed female dorm. Room is sort of small but clean. Bed is too soft, can feel the wood planks underneath. Room does have A/C though. In total, there are 13 beds in the hostel, 2 showers, 2 toilets & 2 sinks all located on the same floor. Upstairs is a small common room but...
