Description

Mango53 Inn is a backpacker's hostel in a 60+ years Taiwanese town house. It is remodeled and carefully preserved the nostalgic air of 50's-60's Taipei in the most historical area - Banka or Monga district. The hostel is surrounded by government-assigned historical sites, especially famous Longshan Temple showcasing traditional Chinese architecture and lively Buddhist-Taoist religious culture in Taipei. Here you can experience traditional religious-centric life, enjoy typical local food, and discover the beauty of 3 temple heritages, all in walking distance.

The hostel is a stone's throw away from MRT Longshan Temple Station, and Wan Hua train station. 7-11, banks, and food stands are nearby. Many sight-seeing spots such as Longshan Temple, Herbal Street, Huaxi Street night market, and Baopilio (Heritage and Culture Education Center) are within 5-minutes walking distance.

Our mission is to provide a budget accommodation for backpackers who love to explore authentic Taipei. We remodeled this prost-WWII red-brick 4-stories town house in nostalgic design to offer friendly facilities including sofa, computer, TV, guide books, kitchenette in the spacious attic as the communal area for guests to mingle with other travelers.

Other traveler-friendly amenities include:

Two out-door terraces (smoking area and laundry area)

Directions

Location! Location! Location! Our hostel is a stone's throw away from MRT station. Yet we found some guests might pass by our hostel and ask for clear signage outside. We apologize we have to keep low profile just as other hostels do because of the biased local hospitality regulations toward hostel lodging in Taiwan. Luckily most our guests acclaim that getting to our hostel is a piece of cake as long as they follow the instructions and map below.
