- Holo International Family Travel Hostel (formerly Key Mall Traveler Hostel)First to ReviewOct 27, 2013
The Holo International Family Travel Hostel (also previously called the Key Mall Traveler Hostel and a couple other names) is literally located on the 22nd floor of Key Mall, a large building with electronics stores, restaurants, and a DAISO (the Japanese chain where everything costs NT$39) on the lower floors. The rooms are basic but quiet and clean. There are single/double rooms and dorms, most of which have shared bathrooms (including the single rooms) at the rate of four persons per bath. There is a small kitchen and dining area adjacent to the front desk with a television, coffee/tea and water dispenser. The free basic breakfast of coffee/tea and toast with butter and jam is served here. It’s a little more expensive than some other hostels, but location doesn’t get much better than this.

The common area isn’t very big, but there’s a lot of stuff in it, a lot of books and information along the walls for backpackers, and photos and thank-you notes from previous guests who enjoyed their stay. (One of the notices on the wall said if you kill a mosquito you get a 1% discount, and if you kill 100 you will get a 100% discount!) It sort of felt like it’s maybe not the nicest place to stay in terms of comfort, but at least they had a sense of humor about it. Transportation is really convenient, it’s right across from Taipei Main Station. Any type of transportation you want is right at your fingertips. Since it’s located pretty high up on the 22nd floor, at night there would be a decent view out of the common area. The single room is just a bed and a small table, not much space for anything else. It’s really just for sleeping. The shared bathrooms seemed rather clean.Recommended for:Backpackers
