No chance for senior white guys
“Went there and found it was really hard to find someone there to have fun. No pool, no hot steam room.“

No chance for senior, mature white guys.
“You are absolutely right. If you had studied travel gay well, you should have gone to the other one... Where you could find ton of naked guys with all kinds of taste. I am sure that you will get your money worth spending.“

Taiwanese American Review
“ANIKi is one of the cleanest saunas with a great gym. Most clients are local young guys who are very selective. Few Westerners show up and they have no problems getting laid, unlike Babylon of Bangkok. Most action will take place in the group rooms. Rooms with glory holes are poorly placed.“

Greatly deteriorated, and I don’t just mean the décor
“Visited a couple years ago and was totally WOW’ed, so despite all the bad reviews, decided to come back. Big mistake. While the club still charge the full NT$1000, the interior deteriorated greatly. During my last visit, I truly felt this was the best renovated, most modern sauna I have been around the world. Not anymore. Lots of the facilities are out of order or closed. The place does not feel clean. A large portion of the club felt like site of abandoned construction projects (the shower area literally has exposed, unfinished cement floor). Condoms and lube are no longer supplied in the club (it was supplied at the entrance cashier desk). It appears the owner has opted to run the club on the cheap. The clientele was also not what it was. Last time it was filled with young fit guys in their 20s and 30s. This time, the place did not feel busy (on a Saturday afternoon/early evening), and the proportion of young attractive guys was much smaller. Overall, a disappointing experience.“

Worst experience every
“Only 1 person sleeping in the cabin. There is no other people inside. The facilities are run down, broken, and some areas are closed. It is far from nearby transit, and they charge for NT1000 which is way more expensive than other saunas. They could first inform the custormers if there is less people and if you would still want to continue. We come here to have fun. Not playing with the sleeping guy in the cabin. They said they just provide the facilities, might as well say they just want to earn your money.“

Cold and limited facilities
“Sauna not hot. Stream room not too steamy and quite cold. Facilities limited (no jacuzzi). Generally cold feeling. Staff not very helpful.
Not a very good experience. Lots of room for improvement.

Cold, Foreigners charged double
“This Sauna is an absolute disgrace - the facility is so poorly run they unable to get any heat in either the sauna or either of their steam rooms. I asked staff to fix it but they were unable. It is a disgrace that foreigners are charged double at NTD$1000 per person for this place - so disgusting that a gay establishment is racist in this way.
I can see that money was spent setting the place up but it has obviously landed in the hands of people that deeply incompetent. I sincere wish is it close down and that Taipei get a quality gay sauna.“

Too bright for the steam room?
“Came back from Babylon and like steam rooms there very much. Aniki cut down their steam room to one third and put the light on and not enough steam there. No pool, wrong steam toom with lights. I just don't know what is on their mind to run business. They might need to check soi 13 to learn how to do business. Aniki has parties on Saturday night though. I like foam party the fourth weekend every month.“

Aniki New Price policy
“Since the first day of the new year, it changes the price policy, which is buy one get one free.
It is better to cut down the price to five hundred NT dollars for foreigners otherwise it will be a place for mosquitoes and the money you collect is not good enough to pay staff there and other expenses.“

Why can't get in by paying 200 NT$ as locals at 6:30 - 7:30?
“Special rates for locals only at 6:30-7:30, therefore at that period you will see over two hundred people coming in and most of them are young. For foreigners, you need to pay one thousand NT and give a phone number for being a member and then you can enjoy the special rate as well. Too much light in the steam room...and instead of offer so many discounts, why not just cut down the fee to five hundred NT dollars.“

Felt compelled to write this
“Foreigner. First time at this club. Went on a Thursday and the place was PACKED. I always thought of myself as decent looking but Aniki made me feel otherwise. From the guy that checked me in to the first guy that came up to me in the sauna, I was already having a good time but when I went to the basement and, uh, that’s when it became quite the experience lol. I had to catch my breath LOL
Definitely a younger crowd so if you’re in your 20s and want to experience Taiwan’s finest I would DEFINITELY check this place out. I could see the experience being different if you’re maybe not younger/fit.
Went the following day again and because it was empty they gave me a coupon to come back. Still had fun and still got the coupon.“

Raid at around 12am
“It was traumatic because of the raid. There were many police who came. They were courteous though and did not harrass patrons but still a traumatic experience. This did not happen in Singapore and Bangkok when I was in Cruise, Keybox or Babylon. I still have a few days left to stay but really I feel like going home already *sigh*. tourists should be warned not to go to bathhouses , sort of enter at your own risk or suffer the humiliation.“

The sauna already empty with no customer, people will never return if the management keep looking down on customers. I was also there a few times before for nude night but the management was too lazy to enforce it. Please show some respect to customers as we are paying for your profit.“

Not like the old Aniki
“The old Aniki was fantastic when I first visited. I got shocked because they had the guts to invest money to offer a place like that in Taipei, Taiwan. People liked it from all over around the world because it was really something special in Taiwan, which was a must see.
New Aniki is totally a nightmare for people who don't like the gym equipment. I feel they don't know what people need and why people go there...spending so much money. Is there something wrong with the new Mayor? I don't feel they know how to play the game as before and also I guess for security issue sometimes lights are too bright. I like going there only one night, foam party.
They offer special rates for members only and I know it is a gym not a sauna because of avoiding some regulations and routine police check. I hope that someone could say something with them, like making steam room with steam all the time and making it a dark room...it is an expensive place compared to other saunas in Paris, if you want to save money in utilities, just close no more business. No more funny sissy shows with no maturity...
I do hope the old Aniki could come back at somewhere in Taipei, the one now should have a talk with government or Mayor Ker, do they want tourist business or not or votes. Actually Taipei is not really a fun city with so many good looking educated guys, Taipei has potentials for being a hot spot for many westerners who come to Asia. It is very sad to see Aniki now and watch people go there and find no fun, just waste time and money.“

Not nude, no pool or jacuzzi
“I feel compelled to write this review as I had a terrible experience at Aniki WOW. I've gone to many gay saunas over the years in many different countries, and none had any patrons wearing their swimsuit or underwear while in the facilities. I saw on their calendar that Monday was a nude day, which was strange given my experience with gay saunas in general (as every day should be a nude day). That Monday was nude day was further reinforced by a sign as one enters the locker room.
I went with my partner and changed out of our clothes in the locker and went to shower. We saw another patron walk past in his swimsuit, which was the first sign something was awry. As we walked around the facility, EVERYONE was clothed in either their swimsuit or underwear (yes, one person was even wearing his ballooning boxers walking about). Normally I would have no issue if one person decides to keep his swimsuit on while everyone else is nude, but this was clearly not the case and my partner and I felt awkward being the only ones completely nude.
Anyway, we decided to scope out the facility and encountered a decent sauna but a mediocre steam room. We tried finding the jacuzzi and/or pool to no success. I asked management, and it turns out THEY DON'T HAVE A JACUZZI OR A POOL. What? How does a gay sauna not have a jacuzzi or a pool?
Fed up, I told the front desk I wanted a refund, of which I was denied. The manager explained it was a mistake indicating Monday was nude day, despite the additional signage before the locker room that it was nude day (which was then promptly removed). For $1000 NT (~$33 USD), this was NOT cheap and had neither a jacuzzi nor a pool, as one would expect as standard amenities in a gay sauna. I urge you to take your money elsewhere.“

“Tried to use their gym but had to dial back on the intensity of my work out because NO VENTILATION seemed to exist in this underground venue. Both vending machines were broken so you have to prepare water in advance. Also some of the lockers were broken.“

Aniki's breaking down
“I really have a high expectation from this boulevard but sadly it's kind of dissapointing.
While the facilities incl. gym are very high on standards, the venue itself only filled in by 20% of the max. capacities (17x20).
I've got 3 days pass for NT2000 and was there from Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
On Friday evening, there were only 20-30 ppl. Nice and decent looking. I've had fun in the steam room. Nights on 3am as i was reentered. It was nearly empty.
On Saturday evening, there were more ppl but only 50 max. The masks event was nice but not overwhelming. only about 1/5 of the designated room was filled in. Nights on 3 am empty as well.
On Sunday, this is the worse thing. Only 10-20 ppl most of the time. Crowds were bad too. Despite this should cattered the finest gym body guys, there were none to be seen.
I guess that Aniki won't be last longer, sadly. It was practically too big. We want more friction and more crowded place to hunt-. In Aniki you feel like going to the club with nearly empty crowds so its very frustrating if you want to hunt over someone descreetly as u always miss the targets.
Anyhow, another rival opened in January and should've been very popular among locals as they only cost about NT500.
I was visiting from Germany in my 30es, have a toned gym build and a decent face. I guess i had more grindr fun than in Aniki.“

Over rated, not worth NT800-1000, quiet!
“Went to Aniki on Thursday night, paid NT1000, extremely quiet with only 10-15 people. Ask reception why it was so quiet, he said weekend would be very busy. So come back on Saturday, again only 30-40 people, only 5-10% are acceptable looking, waste anther NT800. Don't be bother to go there, too expensive and not many attractive guys,“

Expensive and Bears May Want to Skip
“I've visited many of the saunas in Taipei, so I thought I would give this one a try. Arrived around 8pm on the weekend. It is in the basement of the address listed. Once in the building take the elevator or stairs and walk downstairs. I am a white bear. I found the rules and orientation (I will call it) a bit tedious. You have to use a kiosk to pay, they have to show you how to use the RFID chip on your wristband to open locker, special rules about the towels, etc. Oh, and what they give you is not a towel. It is a large wash cloth. Again , not bear friendly. Once inside, it was unclear if you are to be naked or clothed. I followed what I saw others doing and ended up wearing my underwear. There were only ever about 35 guys and only a handful in the wee hours of the morning. There is no jacuzzi. I asked. There is no dark room or maze (two very common features in Taiwanese saunas). The sauna and steam room are huge, but the steam room was closed for more than half of my visit (for cleaning). I ended up going into one of the sleeping rooms on the lower-level and resting with the door open. Eventually, some guys came around. I had a little fun, but it is not worth paying 2-3 times more than I would at the other saunas in town. If are you fit, you would probably have an amazing time here. Bears, not so much. I will skip Aniki next time and spend my time at the others.“

“I arrived at Aniki Wow on an early Saturday evening. There was going to be a Lube Party as stated on their FB page starting 6pm. So everybody gathered at an event area cordoned off from the rest of the cruising space. You are required to go in naked. There is a staff stationed at the entrance to ensure that. I went in and saw a rectangular space where in the middle there was a inflatable pool filled with lube I suppose. The crowd builds up to about 30+ guys mostly standing against the wall covering their privates. You could see the eagerness but nobody really made any move. There was a bit of touching but most was not too keen because of the bright strobing disco lights. The only thing that happened [was between two guys]. They finally decided to stop when they realized that they were the only 2 people drawing attention in an otherwise event less room and soon everybody left and the Lube Party ended without anyone getting wet. I hate to see so much lube go to waste.“
Xavier on 21-Feb-2017 | Problem with this review?
“An improvement over the old location in some ways. It's more modern and well-maintained with a well-equipped gym. There doesn't appear to be a jacuzzi, though, and the private rooms are much smaller and impossible to stretch out in. It really should have food and drink services inside tho, although multiple entry is available for 16 hours with your wristband. The Lube Party was tamer than expected but there's something for everyone to enjoy.“
Joo on 01-Feb-2017 | Problem with this review?
“Arrived in Taipei for a short trip over the weekends from 2 Dec 16 to 4 Dec 16. Went to Aniki twice. On the Friday night, I arrived at around 12am and there really wasn't much of a crowd. You pay $1000 and get to play for a total of 16 hours. This means you can go back out and come back, as long as you don't rip off the wriststrap given to you. It was quite disappointing as there were only around 20 guys cruising but no one was making any action and got very boring after awhile. The next day I decided to take my chance again and went on the Saturday afternoon just after 6pm. Found out they had an event on from 6pm to 9pm and this time around, there were probably around 100-200 guys roaming in the whole place. Lots of very good looking, young, handsome and gym-fit ones too. The sauna has 2 levels in the basement and the event was held in a big dark room at B2. If you were a top you get a glow in the dark wristband. Inside the room, there were around 50-100 guys just having action together. It was fantastic if this was your kind of thing. If you are decent looking and in good body shape, you can just go stand in the middle and guys will come worship you. There were also other guys all standing outside waiting to see if they can catch any hotties coming out of the room. A smaller room towards the end of the maze also had some touching and action but was much quieter than the big room. I think I ended up playing with over 10 guys in the big room and a guy took me out and we went to get more comfortable in one of those small cubicles. I couldn't be more happier and satisfied. One of my best sauna experience and I would definitely come back again but only on a Sat or Sun night from 6-9pm for the event parties. The locals wont come on the weekdays knowing not a lot of people will due to the higher entrance fee. I hope this helps.“

Expensive but worth it
“Entrance fee is expensive...but facilities are one of the best. I visited this sauna several times. I don't recommend weekdays. There were just 10-15 ppl it's waist of money. If you have no time but weekdays I recommend other sauans in Taipei. On Friday also not many ppl(around 50-70).. I think because of high entrance fee local Taiwanese visit only Saturday night. On Saturday you can meet about 200-300 guys in this sauna. Taiwanese were kind to foreigners and have good manners. I enjoyed every time. It is very large but so cold inside at night. There are not enough blanket. But if you ask to the manager he will give you blanket personally. There is 3days pass coupon(save budget)...u can ask at the front.“

“(Average, in shape visiting White Brit, 31yrs)
I went and inadvertently timed it for the foam party. Everyone was very up for it -- and while I didn't always get the hot guy I had my eye on, there was so much going on. No shortage of interested guys. Foam kinda chokes you, so make sure to drink water, mouth wash when you can. Staff are super professional, and the place had very hot guys. I'd advise to go when there are events on. Foam, steam and gym parties are all great, apparently. (Gym is an extra benefit too!)“

Really nice place
“I've never been to a gay sauna before but after reading the reviews I had to check it out. I went around midnight so it was probably quieter than the early evening.
The were still quite a few cute guys looking for fun, and some average types as well.
This one guy followed me around a bit and I indicated that I wasn't interested but he wouldn't leave me alone, so I went upstairs to the smoking room and waited a bit and went back down.
A guy approached me and we went into a room to have some fun. The are two types of small rooms, some the size of a bathroom stall and some others the size of a queen bed.
I thought they provided condoms but I couldn't find them, only the lube.
Overall good experience. It's clean, comfortable and nice. If you like young Asian guys this is the place to go. I'm sort of a cub-ish Asian, and some didn't like me but I think anyone can find their match here.“

A must in Taipei Taiwan
“This is a true destination when I visit Taipei. The price is a little steep but it is worth every penny. They have a 5 day pass for NT2000 which is great for American tourist like myself. The crowd is close to 85% to 15% foreigners. The sauna is one of the best in the world if they keep it up. It is NOT as busy as Babylon in Bangkok but it has everything you are looking for.

I hope the management will listen to customers and cut back on this party (or no one would come on Sunday). It's never good to not give clients any choice.

Didn't have a problem as a Caucasian at all
“i concur with the review above that the front staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful (especially as I do not speak Chinese well, though can read it decently).
Unlike the previous reviewer, however, I had no problem meeting guys and there was certainly no dearth of guys interested in Caucasians...
This said, the entry fee is very steep if one is not a member! Thus, taking advantage of becoming a member -- as well as all the 50% discount plans (e.g. wearing a suit on Monday, being hung on Tuesday, being a member of a gym somewhere on Friday) -- are well worth taking advantage of!
In this sense, I doubt many actually pay the somewhat overpriced NT$1,000 entry fee which really is quite steep!“

Went 3 times - 20, 21, & 22 Mar 15 - not disappointed
“I checked out Aniki three times on 20, 21, and 22 March 2015 while visiting Taipei and was not at all disappointed as a Caucasian.
Friday night was a little slow around 5pm, but picked up after 7pm when the after work crowd arrived. Saturday evening mask party was bordering on extraordinary -- if you are into 80+ guys in a room going at it with masks (!) - and Sunday afternoon was a little slower, but not dreadfully slow.
I'd definitely go back. It doesn't have the facilities of a Babylon in Bangkok, but the modernity is impressive. Where else do you have automatic lube dispensers? Those were great!
As for cost, it's worth paying the NT$1,000 membership fee if you'll go back 3 or more times; it's also good forever, so while certainly expensive, no doubt about that, can be justified.“

Now I hear you say, maybe I wasn't their type...but this place was PACKED and if I do say so myself, I'm not THAT bad looking or chubby or anything. I fully understand that in Western places, Asian guys are often treated the same way but I have never personally went out of my way to be rude and avoid someone. It's not nice being pushed out of the way all night. It's such a pity, having such good facilities going to waste...
On a lighter note, staff were helpful and friendly upon entry.“

You must be kidding
“You must be kidding me. Babylon in Bangkok besides it building and architectural, has absolutely ZERO sexual energy. Everytime I visit Bangkok now, I don't bother to come back. The reason to go to gay sauna is to have fun and Babylon bkk felt miserably. Even at foam party during Songkran while the place was packed and hundreds were waiting outside, it was totally boring because there isn't any sexy activities inside. ANiKi at least has some fun naked nights.“

One of the best, especially the guys.
“It surely stands as one of the world's top venue of its kind. The recently closed one is still new and superb; the new one is even better. It is a place for fitness, fantasy and fun as intended for fit and attractive men. It has state-of-the-art facilities, attentive staffs and a large percentage of good looking guys. The events are enjoyable and creative. It is also quite easy to find. However, the price is premium as well.
The followings might be improved.
- The pillows are too flat.
- Blankets can be added.
- The bathroom's floor is now too coarse. It hurts feet.
- The shower knob is too difficult to turn off.
- Lube should be provided in a little pack too.
- The big dim red-light room is the best spot to have fun. The brightness is already good. Guests usually have action there as usual, so the gym party might need a bit brighter light and move to the gym?
- Sauna room is sometimes cold.
- I prefer to use the stairs instead of the elevator to enter the facility. It is awkward to stand and wait in a public place letting everyone knows your status.
- May add mirrors to some rooms?“

No atmosphere, not sexy, expensive, disappointing
“Visited Aniki in October when pride event was on, Sunday afternoon/ evening. What a disappointment! Long queue (1 hr) to get in because only one person was selling tickets. Inside it is on 2 floors. Overall it feels like an industrial building that has had lots of rooms created from partitions and walls you might use to create toilets or similar. It has no real atmosphere and does not feel like a place you want to spend hours wandering around, relaxing and trying different areas. Well there's not really much to try anyway.
On the first level there is a lounge area which is a bare room next to the entrance with a couple of large tables and seats in the middle, imagine a hospital dining room with two long tables, nothing on the walls, all white. No idea why you'd want to sit in there. There's a big gym area. There are showers which are quite nice as you get a good view of guys showering through the glass. They have strange recesses in the walls with no signs or anything which seem to provide soap if you put your hand in although I saw several people who couldn't work it out and put their towels in there.
Also on the first level is the steamroom. This is large, but either has no steam or suddenly too much steam. It's quite bright and with no steam you can see the whole room easily. It has almost no corners or darker areas to play in. It's just far too open and lacks a sense of excitement and was pretty empty anyway with maybe 6 or 10 people at any one time. Could have fitted 50 or more easily. There's a dry sauna. Not many people bothered with that. Near the showers are maybe eight cubicles in a line (just like toilets) with glory holes in the walls - not sexy at all so not surprising nobody used them.
Going down one level on some big industrial metals stairs you reach the next floor. This has some special event rooms and lots of cabins. You can see over the top of the partitions that there are other areas not open yet as the partitions don't go to the ceiling.
There was a special naked dark room event when I was there. This was a room that was square maybe 12m x 8m, quite bright and with a big mattress on the floor on one side. Just a big empty room, quite brightly lit, no corners or smaller areas to play - nothing else at all. Had maybe 50 guys in it and people were having a good time but could have been so much better. Also downstairs is the foam party room I guess - this was closed.
The cabins are small, not big enough to lie down in. Toilet cubical size although some seemed to be double units but then you had the metal structure going across the floor in the middle of the room. In side the room there's some dispensers - no labels of course - lube and condoms.
There's no jacuzzi or bath, pool or no darker rooms, no play areas or comfy areas to chill out in, no slings or stuff like that, no food available or drinks or bar apart from some vending machines, it's just like a warehouse with temporary partitions put up - LITTLE ATMOSPHERE at all and just doesn't feel sexy or exciting or a place to hang around in - huge but not really interesting despite there being some cute guys and getting plenty of attention. It's also expensive.
Someone spent a lot of money on this but totally got the concept wrong, sorry to say, by getting a company who designs office space to do the layout probably.
This is definitely NOT a Babylon Bangkok competitor and I don't think I'd bother to go again.“

Not at level of expectations !
“I went there on October Tuesday the 21st. Box for play are small: Non-sense to play with someone. Towels are small size and they smelt very bad when they are wet: unacceptable bad smell.
This sauna must quickly upgrade those two points otherwise technology investments don't make sense. “
