I stayed in a double bed en-suite for 3 nights in March. Hotel room is as clean as others' comments. Common areas are lively and energetic. Great location as it's just 5 minutes walk from Zhongshan Station. I would definitely recommend to backpackers who want a "luxury" stay!

I was introduced to Star Hostel via Hostelworld. I'm an avid user and it has introduced me to many great places. Star Hostel is a quirky little place tucked along the main street of Zhongshan North Rd. For those who value access, this place offers very close proximity to amenities and shopping not forgetting the MRT too! It takes a...

We stayed here for two nights in March and were impressed with Star Hostel from the beginning. We stayed in a private air con room (which is actually in the building next door) and paid 1500NT a night. Considering that even budget hotels are 2000NT+, this place is a great find and much nicer than some of the dirty and...

The location of the hostel was wonderful. There is a japanese massage place called Karada Factory along with a Thai massage place across the street. I found a really artsy alley a few streets down that has a Thai restaurant, fair trade clothes and jewelry and a theater called Spot Theater where you can watch current mainstream or Indie films...

Very friendly and helpful staff with ready information. The rooms are basic but clean and cheery. The ensuite bathroom was always well-stocked with nice-smelling shampoo & bath essentials, something which I didn't expect from a hostel. Love the relaxing lounge/recept area which we often sit to wind down after a long day out. It is centrally located and within walking...

I had a difficulty finding this hostel when I went to Taipei. Even cab drivers do not know where. However, the hostel is ideally located in a busy street about 15 minutes walk from the nearest train and bus station. There were lots of food stalls and restaurants near the hostel. ATM machines and shopping areas are just down stairs....

This is one of the better hostels I've stayed in overseas. Good location near some cool shops/cafes, MRT & MOCA. Nice staff, nearly always somebody at reception. Main communal area has a bunch of comfy couches and is a really nice chilled-out space. Good kitchen with cooking facilities, kettle, tea bags etc. Whole place is really clean, looks like its...

Just got back from 4 nights of stay at Taipei and though exhausted, I had to get to writing this review because of their beautiful hostel and friendly staff. The room looked exactly like what we see in the pictures. We stayed on the fifth floor and I won't lie, it's tedious climbing them with luggage or after a long...
