You all need to pay any deposit when booking hostel?

I just called up a hostel and they say just need to email them to book, no need deposit.

I only worry that when reach the hotel they will tell you no more room left.

This is becos I went online booking agents to check and the hostel was fully book for those days. however when i call them they say got vacancy...wonder who should i trust.

Anyway, the price he quote is cheaper than online agents
Arh those agents only got limited vacancies thats y they say no vacancies ... the hostel cant possibly allocate all rooms to the agents ... its not a matter of trust ... its a matter of how the business and industry works ...

Miramar Entertainment Park - No. 20 JingYe 3rd Rd, Zhongshan dist. Taipei

Take mrt to jiantan station, then take Miramar shuttle bus

It is very near taipei MOS... so u can go to the ferris wheel first before going clubbing

Both Mass Rapid Transit lines and railroad lines converge underground beneath this station.

That's why they call it the Taipei MAIN Station. Cos you can take the MRT (not MTR, that's HK's one) there to take the railway to other parts of Taiwan. Think of it as something like KL Sentral Station.
