Everything Ximending has to offer is within a very short walking distance, including 24hr supermarket, 24 hr Carrefour, Mcdonald's and cinema, and plenty of restaurants and cafes, 5 minutes walk from metro Ximen station and only 1 stop from Taipei Central train station, where your bus arrive from Taoyuan airport.

And you will be shocked how "wonderful" my place is! Super "value for money!" My place is far better than local hostel under this unbelievable price! Welcome!

6. If you arrive in Taiwan very early, our earliest time is 9 am. You can leave your luggage at 9 am. I won't let you come earlier than 9 am because other people still sleeping.
我们的入住时间原则是 3:00 pm 但是最早可以 9:00 am 来放行李。 9:00 就是9:00 喔 (我不会让您早于9:00 进来的)

8. You will realize from 9 pm ~ 9 am no new people will come because I want to ensure the great "sleeping quality" of other guests. I have bad experience in Barcelona because my host bring new guest check in at 1 am. It was really annoying. Of course, my host didn't did anything wrong because there's a free room, he can bring new guests to make money. But it destroyed my sleeping quality and I don't have any power on the next day. That's why I am willing to earn less money but get better review. I care about my guests feeling.
你发现从 9 pm~9 am 不会有新的人来,我之前在西班牙巴塞隆纳的时候,我的房东为了赚钱,在1:00 am 带新的房客入住。当时我很不爽,因为我被吵醒了,结果隔天去圣家堂的时候精神很不好,整天迷迷糊糊的。当然,我的房东并没有错,有空房间新的房客当然可以住进来,但是我的睡眠品质& 我的时间也很宝贵啊! 我在巴塞隆纳也才待三天,结果一天就毁了! 有鉴于此,我宁愿赚少一点钱,获得更高的评价,我在乎你的感受。

9. Check out time is 12:00. However, you can check out anytime you want. If someone will stay in your room on the last day, you have to move the luggage to the living room by 12 :00.

Pls spend a lot more money to have a better night rather than staying at Ian's place, the room was terrible and not cleaned! Overall everything is old and dirty, facilities were not fully furnished, the photos in airbnb are not the actual image of the house, the street going back to the house is dark and no lift going up to the house, sound proof was bad, can hear ppl talking from the next door, towels and linens provided got yellow spots on them, I felt itchiness on my chin during the night because of the dirty pillows! Pillows are flat and uncomfortable to sleep in. Pls choose another hotel!

Response from Ian:
This review is totally ridiculous! I spent so much time to do the "cleaning" and you are talking nonsense.I vacuum the floor, mop the floor, take away all the garbage to make this place as clean as possible. However, the moment you walk into my house,you had make it very dirty,you dress up also like dirty person.the shirts seems many days never wash them.THIS IS A COMPLETE LIE: "The photos in Airbnb are not the actual image." I pledge allegiance to Airbnb: The photos are exactly the same!!! Hey! Future guests! If you find the photos are not the same when you enter my house, I will give you a FREE dinner to you! I PROMISED. This lady came to disturb me,eating the whole day in my place,dirty the room also. She just stay one night and talking rubbish.I don't think u are coming for holidays because I didn't see your luggage with you.I guess my competitors sent you to come here because you smile to me superficially, but in your deep dirty heart you are coming to spoil me,on purpose.

Ian is such a GREAT host ! He is a HANDSOME magician! He is very helpful & respectful. His peaceful place is well located in Ximending. Located 5 minutes only from metro ximen station. Very efficient & convenient public transport to explore everywhere in Taipei city. Because ximen is in the center of Taipi city! My room is pretty nice and there are colorful carpets on the ground! Pillow, blankets are clean. A lot of extension sockets so there is no problem to charge my phone. I have my own keys so I feel pretty safe. There are free shower gel, shampoo in the bathroom. 24hr hot water and toilet paper provided. Ian is a funny, flexible, and considerate host as well. He let us check in at 11 am and he tries his best to make this place as clean as possible, always thinks on guests side. He let me check out anytime I wish. His English is very good so there is no problem to communicate with him. His magic show is amazing! He puts a candle in the middle of the 4 packs of pokers and tells me a Taiwanese legend! As soon as he blew up the candle a MAGIC happens! IT IS UNBELIEVABLE! Ian also gave me a warm hug! I love my host! What's more, Ian is super fast to respond and willing to answer to any questions to make sure I have a great trip in Taipei. I would definitely recommend this room to a family or group of friends !!

Jeff and his partner (not boyfriend) are very funny! Jeff is 37 years old from Dabaw, Mindanao, the Philippines. He is single now and looking for a handsome boyfriend in Taiwan. His partner has a boyfriend with a good relationship for 7 years! They love travelling and they also join the gay pride in Taipei. I am so shocked they already made their "TAIWAN LGBT" T-shirt in the Philippines and brought it to Taiwan! We have gay pride every year in late October and always attracts tons of people to join! Taiwanese are very open-minded to LGBT! Our president also support LGBT as well! She said, "我是蔡英文,我支持婚姻平权! 愿天下有情人都能得到大家的祝福!! " There's a gay flag on our Taipei city hall on that day! I super super welcome LGBT to my lovely place! (= ̄ω ̄=)

Very nice boy from Thailand! He is a 25 years old student. He took NokScoot airline to Taiwan! He also taught me "nok" means "bird" in Thai language! However, what I realize first "nok" means "Norwegian Krone" in Norway. I am very happy to host you too! (=^_^=)

Communication with the Ian was good, very prompt reply with accurate instruction which lead us to the homestay. We managed to follow the direction and he lead us to the homestay.The homestay is just 5 minutes walking distance to ximen MRT which is located in the heart of Ximending, which is just a station away from Taipei Main Station. There are a lot of convenient stores nearby too. The homestay which located at the second floor provide you with the basic needs for a stay, such as hairdryer, shampoo etc. WIFI was great too. I would recommend this house for my friend who are plan to go to Taiwan. ---traveler from Malaysia ---

I will sing this wonderful song to you when you come, " Bayang magiliw perlas ng silanganganan alab ng puso sa dibdib mo'y buhay Lupang Hinirang duyan ka nang magiting sa manlulupig di ka pasisiil Sa Dagat At bundok sa simoy at sa langit mong bughaw may dilag ang tula at awit sa paglayang minamahal ang kislap ng watawat mo'y tagumpay na nagniningning ang bituin at araw niya'y kailan pama'y di magdidili "

Here is my best advice //////// 20 years from now you will be more disappointed by THE THINGS YOU DIDN'T DO than by the once you did do///////////////////////
- in the end we only regret the chances we didn't take
-travel, it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller
-to travel is to take a journey into yourself
-it feels good to be lost in the right direction
-travel is the only thing you buy, that makes you richer
-if you think Adventure is dangerous, try routine, it is lethal
-to travel is to live, if not now, when?
- you cannot buy happiness, but you can buy a ticket
-to travel is to take a journey into yourself
-I am in love with cities I've never been to and with people I've never met
-you don't need magic to disappear, all you need is a destination
-the best is yet to come
-Buy the ticket and take the ride + the journey is the reward, that's why you do it
did I miss something???
The slower you move the faster you die, moving is living
Live is what you make it
