My sister had never stayed in a hostel before, so I wanted to find the perfect place to introduce her to the experience. I was SO impressed with Homey Hostel and really thankful I chose them. The rooms were comfortable and clean and the common room had a great vibe to it. We actually met another family at Homey Hostel, and travelled together!The location is also really great. It made for a perfect jumping off point to the rest of the tourist sites we wanted to see in Taipei. Finally, the staff were so so cool. They were really professional and helped us out a lot by giving us tips, itineraries, and directions to the best breakfast spot.

Lovely friendly efficient and helpful staff. Great location close to main station and night market. Stylishly furnished with huge windows and cozy seating platforms with cushions and teddy bears. Clean and well maintained bathrooms. I really enjoyed my stay here!

We arrive at 1:30 AM Taoyuan International Airport of Taiwan and soon after buying all the things we need during our stay we headed towards Homey Hostel. As first timers in Taiwan, locating the place is so easy. Beforehand, the Hostel advised us that we are welcome to stay in the lobby before we checked in. So, we let our self-in to the Hostel and found a comfortable area so we can snooze in while waiting for the reception to open. Their staff are very accommodating they even gave us tips on where to go next or what are their preferred destination fit for our need. We definitely recommend Homey Hostel to our fellow travelersand we will come back to this very awesome place.

The price per night was affordable yet the room, bathroom, and the toilet or even the breakfast were so worth as the price paid. The hostel was super clean and the interior and the whole environment was so comfy. I would definitely come back again. The staffs were very nice too!

Pros: My title says it all! And that applies to both my stay at the hostel and renting a bike for a week.Cons: Rooms rather cramped. I had a room for 4 to myself and it was still rather cozy. And the noise (muzak) I found rather loud at times.But overall a great place only a few hundred metres from the main train station.Country of origin = Scotland (As box on this form only caters for UK)

I have a really good experience with Homey! I love the room and shared areas. Facilities are really good and the room is clean! Also, the location is superb as it is near the main station and good restaurants! I got a chance to join the Elephant Mountant tour and meet a lot of good friends! I will come back if I have a chance!

5 day stay was perfect! My bus from Taichung took way longer than expected and I was terrified I wouldn't be able to check in. When I found my room key at the front desk I could have cried tears of joy. Great detail 🙂 Hostel was very well kept and very clean. Great location for getting around by bus, train or metro! Loved it. Thank you!

I only stayed overnight here after a late flight coming in from Taoyuan, but I asked the hostel if it would be alright to check in past the check-in window. Not only did they say it was alright, they even waited up for me to arrive to make sure I had my room key and everything I needed! There were others still awake in the common area and looked like they were having a great time. If I hadn't been so tired I would have joined in! The bed was really comfortable and with a great view of the city at night. When I woke up, I intended on leaving at check out time to wait for hours at the train station for my train, but the hostel kindly let me eat breakfast and stay in the common area past check out time until I was ready to leave. Everyone felt so willing to talk to and befriend one another there, it really felt homey!Another thing I loved about this hostel, which was why I booked her in the first place tbh, was the location. It's literally one of the closest places you can get to the train station, I'd say a 3-4 minute walk, and the price for that proximity is surprisingly low! Great deal, I'm definitely booking again when I go back to Taipei.

I loved my stay at Homey. They stayed through to their name, indeed it was a very homey place. Being a budget solo traveler, the biggest concern is always getting affordable and instagram-able place to stay and Homey has exceeded expectations in so many ways. It may be a little off the track, because it is located in a shared high-rise building with only visible branding upon entering but apart from that, all is GREAT.I arrived way past check-in time but they prepped my keys at the counter and instructions on how to get my bed and then how they'll follow up with me the next day. Excellent. The rooms, is as per advertised, clean, bright, and fun!The toilet and bathrooms, EXCELLENT too! Super clean and amenities are complete.The common room is filled w plugs and comfy places for you to just hang out so another +++ point for these peeps.Oh to top it all off, the staff all spoke very good English!

Our stay at Homey Hostel was indeed a remarkable experience. We enjoyed our stay and if ever we'll return back to Taiwan, we'll surely look for your hotel and book again. The hotel was clean. The location was accessible to Taiwan MRT Main Station. Great freebies - toothpaste, toothbrush, coffee, black tea and green tea. Nice lobby where-in customers could stay to relax, read a book, drink a beer and share a story with a fellow visitor. Free wifi. Free usage of towel and slippers - no need to include them in your to-bring list, they already got it. Thick comforter and a warm shower to compliment the cold weather. Well-secured with installed CCTV and guard-on duty who will monitor the screens at night. The doors are open even if you go home past midnight coming from a stroll at the different Taiwan night markets. Continue with the good service.Areas to improve: deploy more staffs who are fluent in English.

If you plan not only visit Taipei but other cities in Taiwan, I strongly recommend to stay in homey hostel! Because homey is one of hostel alliance members, you can have 10% discount if checking in any of this alliance's hostel! This hostel is amazing! Designed hostel in commercial building. There are many hostel's activities for guest. Lively place and cheap price. 這的地方真是太神奇了，隱藏在商業大樓裡的世外桃源，設計非常漂亮。住宿價錢也很便宜，超值！

Our stay at Homey Hostel was superb! Such a clean, welcoming, and warm place to stay that overlooks Taipei from the 7th floor. Wonderful restroom and showering facilities, nice simple breakfast, water and coffee/tea available all day. Couldn't have asked for a more beautiful community space, with small and large tables, games, kitchen, computers, stage, lounging spaces and musical instruments to sing along to (my husband especially appreciated the ukulele which he played every night). Perfect location, right by the main station MRT and various food and tea shops along the way. Customer centered staff members were friendly and very helpful! Thank you for this perfect stay!!

If you are on the look out for a nice place to stay while in Taipei, head no further than Homey Hostel. Centrally located (near Taipei Main Station and Taipei Bus Station), so you're just a ride away no matter where in Taipei you want to go. The rooms are clean, safe and even conducive to sound sleeping (even if you share it with others) but the real gem for me is the lounge/reception where guests usually hang out after a full day of exploring. The staff are nice and always ready to help.

I stayed in Homey for 5 days last week. It is a highly recommended hostel. The staff was nice, helpful and friendly. Showers and beds were clean and tidy. Local tours were provided to let the travelers explore the city, its a good way to meet new friends. I wish I had more chances to talk with the others in the lobby though. Overall I enjoyed staying here and it would be my pick for the next trip to Taipei.

We were able to check in after hours without reservation ahead of time. It was a Friday night and the other hostels around were fully booked. Theses guys have enough capacity. Convenient location near the taipei main station. Many food options around. Their breakfast is minimal to say the least. Their living room space is decorated well, spacious, comfy and very inviting.
13:26 08 Oct 18
First of all, I'd like to point out that the staff was super nice to us. They were helpful and cheerful and willing to offer help to us. Another point is that the location is close to the metro station and it's easy to reach there. Lastly, I'd like to say the room was neat and clean, even we stayed in a mixed dorm which was not as bad as I imagined. To conclude that it was a pleasant stay in Homey Hostel. It was actually my first time to stay in a hostel and it totally has changed my perspective to the hostel!

Stayed in this hostel for 3 nights. I had a really good time.The hostel is ideally located in the center. From there you can easily walk to the Main station or metro station. There is also a small night market near by.My room was comfortable and clean. All the common areas are tidy and regularly cleaned.Staff is really helpful and nice. The crowd staying here is lively and easygoing.I can only recommend this place.
05:39 05 Sep 18
Very convenient, very near to Taipei main station. A clean place to stay. Very good place to stay if you are looking for cheap and clean place. Everything is organize and provided. Its a cool and Hip place...Overall experience - very good, excellent for backpackers
00:21 03 Sep 18
Place is really nice and brand-new. A 10min walk from nearest bus/train station. Just a few things that can be improved: One is cleanliness of the toilets. Men MUST have their own urinals. Shower is fine to be gender neutral but toilet is a no-no. Another thing is the free breakfast. Breaksfast starts too late. In our 3 day stay, we only got 1 breakfast. For us tourists, we value time so earlier breakfast, like 7am, should be considered.

Homey Hostel is located near Taipei Main Station which is not hard for us to find. The instruction provided from the staff is very helpful. It was easy to go around the city as there 3 lines near/connected to Main Station which is a good thing that we stayed in Homey.The place is cozy and has friendly vibes. Our assigned room is clean, the beds are comfy. The staffs are accommodating and attentive with your needs. They even offer free coffee, tea and water 🙂 Overall I will recommend this to my friends 🙂

It is the best!! The vibe is really nice. Cool lobby and and comfortable room. So many activities you can join for free. Even the staff is amazing! Been traveling and stay in hostel a lot but so far here is the most friendly staff ever. Never lack smile and humor. Big thumbs up to the guy in reception. Even he's not korean but his korean ability is such like native. I can't remember his name. But please let him know that someone just praise him!!!. Keep that up! The breakfast is worth what you pay. Not like typical hostel breakfast. It's a must place to stay when you in taipei.

I just spent 5 days at Homey and I'll never stay anywhere else in Taipei. The staff was so awesome. My first night I arrived late and they had prepared everything for me so I could go to sleep then check in in the morning. I also managed to lose my key and lock myself out of my locker and they were super friendly about getting me in. The rooms, bathrooms, and common area are really clean, ALL the time! I met a ton of friendly people from all over, the atmosphere was really conducive to conversation and hanging out.

Homey hostel is a nice place ,very convenient closed to Taipei main station, street food, KFC, MC Donald, coffee shop, tea bar , 7/11, and department store we can enjoy our time there. Thanks for worm welcome Ms. Kelly 🙂

staff is helpful and friendly, rooms and facilities are very clean. they have walk/eat tours on some days of the week which can help if you've got a night to kill. location is very convenient - just a short walk from taipei main station. lots of options for eating and coffee close by. there's also a McDonalds and KFC closeby if that makes any difference.

It was my first time in Taiwan and I must say, I love it! Im really happy that we've got to choose Homey! Everyone is really nice and attentive to our needs. The place is clean and cozy. The rooms are clean. The lobby is very engaging. You've got to meet lots of people from different countries. We were even invited for the traditional chinese new year dinner. Their cookings are really delicious. I would love to go back to Taipei and choose to stay again at Homey! If you like a place that is youthful and homey, you'll love it here.
03:44 08 Jan 16
It was my first time traveling to Taiwan and I was at the airport and had not made any prior reservations anywhere. I chose this place at random because the airport immigration people to just pick an address to stay in Taipei in and Homey Hostel became the choice. When I arrived, I was greeted by the friendliest staff members that quickly helped me settle in and informed me of their free walking tours, and handed me a photocopy of their hand-drawn map that showed nearby attractions. The hostel is very clean and bright (in both color and luminosity) so being inside felt very pleasant. The staff members are very nice with diverse personalities and they're also attentive if any of the guests have an unstated concern (my confused eyebrows were spotted easily) so don't be shy to ask for help regarding your stay, Taipei tourism, or just start a random conversation. One thing about Homey Hostel that's cool is that they're very involved in making sure their guests enjoy both their stay in the hostel and Taipei, so make sure to think about their free walking tours and events! Homey Hostel is also located conveniently a couple blocks away from Taipei Main Station and Zhongshan Station so transportations-a-plenty. In short: cool place, cool location, and cooler people.
05:59 28 Dec 15
Homey is definitely a little home away from home! Wonderful, funny and very informative staff!! Excellent location, super clean, lots of free stuff like maps and candy, and they made Christmas extra special with Santa Alex!! I had the best time and I would highly recommend taking one of their many free walking night tours of Taipei with Formosa!!!

基本上住的環境以價位來說很不錯，但以下幾點希望能改進~1.大廳晚上沒有人顧又沒有管制所以安全上有疑慮2.四人房型有暗房(這應該無解= = )3.雙人上鋪離天花板冷氣出風太近，頭並不舒服4.床墊軟的有些誇張，不算好躺

At first, I thought this is just backpacker's hotel. In fact, the hostel was not only hotel but like cultural center. There was international environment. I would choose this hostel again if go Taipei.
18:21 24 Mar 14
KkkkIt's awesome place...Really nice..
18:32 11 Mar 14
OMG. This is the BEST home-feel-like hostel ever. Maybe that's why this hostel is called 'HOMEy'. The most valuable asset this hostel possesses is the staffs working here. They're just like your friends who are really keen to get to know you! Oh, I forgot to mention, this is my second visit to this hostel and.. you know why, I visited again..:) there must be a reason! Okay, besides talking about friendly and awesome staffs, I really like their shower booth and toilet. I'm staying at four female dorm room, but 6 dorm room seems nice as well! My review is a bit lengthy so, even if I've got more things to tell, but yeah! Haha:D
