I stayed at the hostel for a little less than a week. I chose a mixed dorm of 8 (I read in other reviews that many of the small dorms mainly accommodate long stay or students). God choice I say, as the reviews were right. The hostel is in such a great location (close to MRT, grocery store, night markets...

Cats pajamas is a chill hostel with clean beds and a very secure location. However, there is little interaction between travellers, which I found to be a downside. If you don't care about socializing with fellow travellers, then this hostel has everything you need, and is a great value.

I was been bitten by bed bugs when i was stayed in the hostel. The room and bed was dirty and full of dust. The only good thing to stay there was the location,It's very near to Shida night market, and that's all.

If you are in a budgeted trip to Taipei, this is a good place to stay in. They provide the most basic of basic. Clean sheets, relatively clean rooms. My friend and I stayed at the dormitory on the first night since we arrived at the hostel at 3am. A guest opened the gate for us when we rang the...

This hostel was easy to find with the directions provided on their website. Walking distance to the Power House Station, and many places to get food and of course bubble teas. The showers always had hot water and good pressure and overall a pretty clean place.

Hostel is so clean and cute, bed room I had was minimal but clean. I highly recommend this place, location is just perfect, people are so nice and you feel just...

In terms of a hostel experience, it gives you everything you could need: cheap, clean, well located, and staffed by helpful and friendly people. We were given a basement bunk-bed room, which although perfectly acceptable wasn't the greatest in terms of air circulation during the summer months, so I'd recommend you try to get a room on the ground floor....

With minimal Mandarin language ability, I was in need of a cheap place near Shida where I could stay until I found an apartment. This place has it all: location, a good deal, and best of all, amazing people. Many young people all over the world stay here and it's very friendly and welcoming. People not staying at the hostel...

I loved this place and so will you! The place is very easy to find and is conveniently located near the Taipower MRT station, giving you access to the whole city. There are cafes, convenience stores, restaurants, etc. all within walking distance. The neighborhood is safe (I suppose most all of Taiwan is pretty safe!) and not noisy at all....
