We stayed here for three nights and were really pleased with our stay. As many other reviewers have said, the location is great - a short walk from Taipei Main Station. It is also really easy to find as all the buildings are numbered so just follow street until you reach building 132! Ring the buzzer and they will allow you to enter. Although we were barked at by a lady upon arrival as we dared to wear our shoes in front of the check-in desk (a sign advising guests to remove shoes when indoors may help avoid to need to be rude to guests!), the rest of the staff was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. They also speak incredible English.
We were in an en-suite double room, which was quiet and comfortable. It was on the top floor, so I do agree with others that travelling with heavy bags is most certainly a bad idea as there is no lift and the stairs are narrow. Shampoo and shower gel is supplied and our towels were changed daily. The room also had a television with a good selection of channels. Breakfast is a real bonus and consists of bread, fruit and coffee. The common areas of the hostel are also really pleasant and nicely decorated.
Should we travel to Taipei again, we will certainly stay at Star Hostel again. Thanks for a great stay!
