Flip Flop Hostel
Located near the Taipei Main Station where access to the rest of the island is a breeze, Flip Flop Hostel aims to meet two of the most important requirements of all backpackers visiting Taiwan: immediate access to public transit and a clean, warm, and welcoming space.
Not only is public transit (main station of train, bus & metro) just a short five minute walk away, we are also just one street away from the Museum of Contemporary Arts. We also hired a local artist to help us transform this old railway workers’ dorm building into the unique, yet cozy space you see today.
Our hostel is looked after with love and care, includes free WiFi, public kitchen space, fresh ground coffee machine, and has a 24hr, openly accessible lobby to support your travel experience around the clock. We also feature free additional storage and coin-toss washer and dryers to ease the minds of the adventure-minded.
Flip Flop Hostel’s accommodations includes single rooms, multi-occupancy rooms, and also a dedicated ladies-only floor. All rooms feature noise-free bed setups, reading lamps, and personal outlets. While there’s no private bathrooms, each floor does provide blow dryers and shower gel in the bathrooms.
Movie theatre, shopping mall, and supermarket is easily accessible right upstairs from closest MRT station. Head west for a short 10min to check out the century-old historic Taipei North Gate, north for the gourmet Ningxia Night Market, and take a five minute MRT ride to visit popular Ximending. Easy access to these local food and entertainment destinations ensures that all our patrons won’t go hungry and bored. But most importantly, Flip Flop Hostel is owned and maintained by backpackers like yourself. With love and care, we welcome all travelers to stay and share their stories in comfort.
