After arriving at Tao Yuan Airport and an extremely painless entry into Taipei (with just a finger scan for a Tourist Visa), I cleared customs and entered the Arrival Hall. I turned left and on my right I purchased an EasyCard for 100 New Taiwanese Dollars and loaded it with 400 NTD credit for my one week visit. There are... More

First time staying at this hostel. It is close to MRT, food options and plentiful of 7-11. It clean and gives you the privacy you need. The staff are very helpful and friendly. I will stay here again. You can just email them through their website and they will book you a room. No online payment needed.

The title says it all, at 300NT a night, you can't beat that price at any other hostel. It's also at the Shandao Temple MRT station which is about a very convenient couple minute's walk away from the hostel. Not to mention, it's pretty much across the street from a famous soymilk place, Fu Hang Dou Jiang, which opens at... More

Stayed here for two nights. Pretty sure it is the cheapest hostel in Taipei at 300NT/night for the dorm. Pros: It’s in a convenient location very close to Shandao Temple MRT station, near Taipei Main Station, airport bus stop at Sheraton, multiple 7-11s, and that famed soy milk place people line up forever for in the morning. There are big... More

Private rooms with bathroom, air conditioning and tv. Central location at shandao temple. Super friendly staff and a lovely roof top :-). You will hardly find another place to stay so central for that price!
