Great location, clean room, hard bed.
Got a private room with the hostel which is in a different building about a 5-7 min walk from the main building. After all the travelling and walking I already did to get there it was a bit of a bummer. The rooms were clean, but the bed was a bit hard. The second building also isn't on Google maps, so you'll have to make your own pin. It's right above a bar and in the area of the ximingding night market so it's in a great location.

Property is very near to ximending and is convenient. However, room is not well cleaned as bed frames have dust and room is not sound proof.

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!
