This was easily the best hostel, no easily the best accommodation experience, that I have had. Period. The staff is really friendly and the people who stay at the hostel are great. The rooms are well taken care-of. The location is great. The internet room is nice and cool and down the basement. The inside is non-smoking, which is great. I'd recommend this hostel to anyone!

I have nothing but glowing praise for Eight Elephants. Central, comfy, clean, and most of all, a fabulous staff who made my stay welcoming and fun. Stayed three nights in the single room and I couldn't have been more impressed. There are several bathroom and shower facilities. The showers are huge and have plenty of hot water. The kitchen is available for personal use and drinking water is provided. There is also a washing machine on the premises, though it's a bit temperamental.

The common area/lounge is the most chill and social place I've come across. There is tons of information available, in addition to computer/Internet access. I met so many people here. It was a pleasure to come back to the hostel after a long day of sightseeing.

The hostel is tucked away inside a fantastic neighborhood that is quiet and safe, but central. ShiDa night market is within a short walking distance, and the Guting MTR (metro) stop (located on a main street) is a few blocks away. There is a supermarket not too far from the hostel along with lots of restaurants and shops.

Seriously, your visit to Taipei isn't complete if you don't stay here!

I've just returned from 4 nights at Eight Elephants. 2 nights in single room and 2 nights in a 7-bed dormitory.

Great location. 5 minutes walking distance from Guting subway staion and 10 minutes to Shida night market. Only 3 subway stops to the Taipei Main station. It's in a quiet residential area. There are many places to eat just around the corner from the hostel pretty much 24 hours a day.

Single room was simple but stylish, clean and comfortable. Dormitory room was also clean and comfortable. Rooms are quite small but cozy. Common room was very friendly. Lots of books including a few Taiwan lonely planets and some board games. One computer for free internet use. Free wireless in the building. Shared bathroom and toilets were clean. The hostel provides drinking water (boiled and cooled).

Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I felt at home straight away.

Excellent staff, comfortable bed, great location. I would definately stay here again if I'm in Taipei. Highly recommended!
