Flip Flop Hostel - Garden

Top choice hostel in Zhongshan & Datong
Image by Booking.com

The use of an open central courtyard, balconies on every floor, architectural tricks, lots of white and huge windows gives Flip Flop an inconceivably large amount of space for central Taipei. This is a fantastic option: rooms are light and airy, there are tons of events and cultural connections with local groups, plus a huge hang-out area to meet other travellers.

With 96 beds, Flip Flop has multiple room types – en suite and shared bathroom, girls only and mixed dorms, as well as very affordable singles and doubles.

They still have their original marmalade-painted digs at 103 Huayin St if Garden is full. This former dormitory for railway workers has cute little singles, a few dorms and a French patisserie in the lobby.
