Affordable hidden gem with nice staff! Apr 24, 2015
A friend recommended Eight Elephants and I was very happy with our decision to stay here instead of a hotel. The location is VERY central to an abundance of convenience stores, restaurants, night markets, etc... You're about a block away from the closest metro station (MRT) which was, by the way, extremely easy to use! Our flight got in at 5am so I was worried that we wouldn't be able to check-in early, but the friendly EE staff gave us a code so we could settle in before business hours! :) The rooms are clean and the floor is swept everyday (you must remove your shoes before entering). Bathrooms and showers are very clean as well. We paid about $40USD/night for a 2 twin bed room. Worth every dollar!

This place is close from MRT. Its about 5 minutes or less to get there. But if it was your first time to come, it could not be to easy to find because all ways have a same name. Like ie : intersection 1 - xxx road, so west - north - south - east have the same name of the road. Confusing.

But this place is worth your effort. It has a living room which is very homie with cozy couch, Computer to use, books to read.

My first time in here was fun, it was so easy to have a new friends because they all were sitting and having a talk in the living room. The room is 6 beds mixed dorm. Only 2 rooms. They have 3 bathroom and 2 toilets. Bathroom is not too big, can say small but. Hmm seems like it almost has the same size with the toilet.

They have kitchen that u can use and refrigerator that u can use. They have a "shared rack" in the refrige to put the meal that you want to share to everyone in the house. Free water to drink.

They also have a washing room, a small room with washing machine.

Garbage bins are everywhere, divided into 3 kind. Its 1AM in the morning and noooo sound. So quit, so if you want to sleep earlier, it will be ok. They have good wi-fi, but no signal for phone so I don't think its a good choice for local if u use your phone much.

If you interest, here is the direction.

1. Take MRT to Guting station

2. Take exit 2

3. U turn right from the exit gate

4. Take left (Jinjiang st)

5. Walk straight until u find the 1st intersection with "7 Eleven" on the right corner

6. Straight cross

7.Keep walking until you find 1st road in the left

8. Turn left

9. Find the 2nd road in the left, turn left

10. There will be 2 ways in the corner, take the right one which is very small alley

11. The first building is the hostel, with 8 small elephants on the door.

It cost you TWD $550 / night with deposit TWD $500 that will refund back to you when you check out.

And they don't have locker for you to use. If you want to rent it, it cost you TWD $500 which is expensive.
