Lucky One Hostel Review Taipei
The hostel is situated in the Datong Area, a place with access to all attractions that a dynamic city such as Taipei provides. With the MRT/public transport within reach and Taipei Confucius Temple nearby, Lucky One Hostel provided a perfect place to rest my head for a couple of nights. Even better, the hostel is just a short journey from Shilin Night Market, a well-known night market in Taipei.
Having managed to secure an Agoda booking with 40% off the regular price, the hostel not only provided value for money, but also a clean and comfortable bed. After staying various types of accommodation around the world, Lucky One Hostel is up there as one of the cleanest dorms I’ve stayed in.
It only took a short walk from the Taipei International Airport bus drop of point. Although I arrived slightly early for check in, the guys & girls behind the reception desk were more than happy to take care of my backpack while I went for wander and grabbed a coffee.
It’s may not be my first time in the city, but a wander around provided me with new running locations and places to eat.
Returning to the hostel, as my passport details has already been provided, check in was a breeze. Room key & locker key were handed over and I made my way up to the second floor. Gusts are allocated bunks, with mine being bunk C, for ‘C’razy.
The dorm was spotless clean when I arrived and the air-conditioning worked a treat. Apart from the fresh white sheets, each bunk has its own personal reading light, charger sockets and a locker with key for personal items. As I made myself at home, no one else was around in the eight bed mixed dorm. Actually the room was total empty until later in the day other travellers arrived from Japan, Korea and other areas of Taiwan.
Free wireless access to the internet is also available on all floors of the hostel.
The shower rooms are shared and are located on each floor, being just a short walk from the dorms. They can be easy spotted by the cowboy saloon style half doors. The facilities were cleaned daily and offered hot or cold water with good power.
If I wanted to be picky, the only complaint I had was the showers have no shelf or hook to store your clothing or toiletries while washing. This was a little annoying, but not the end of the world.
Overall as far as budget accommodation goes, Lucky One Hostel in Taipei was certainly up there as one of the most modern and organised I’ve stayed in.
