Single Bed Male Dormitory (Shared Bathroom)

High value for money”

Although not near Taipei Main Station, you can walk there, or walk 500m from Zhongshan Station. The Ningxia Night Market across the street is open until 1am, so you can still find food before then. The public spaces are large and have a very artistic feel, with large floor-to-ceiling windows where you can look out onto the main road (although there isn't much of a view). In the afternoon or evening, it's really nice to read a book, use your phone, and enjoy a cup of coffee (free coffee machine with latte, chocolate, and hot milk tea). The bathroom is above standard and is one of the best I've seen in hostels. The bed space is also sufficient, and this design gives me a different experience of staying in a hostel (although the space can't be too big, the carefully calculated design makes it much more comfortable to stay in). It's like having your own little nest... The only inconvenience is that you need to be accompanied by staff every time you go upstairs, so the security guard needs to notify them downstairs. If you need to go up and down multiple times, you will need to wait for the staff to come down and take you downstairs. I asked the staff about this, and they said it's because of the building's regulations, but they are happy to accompany guests upstairs 24 hours a day. I think the staff are very nice... even though they have to keep going up and down.

Spacious and comfortable male dormitory room”

Stayed in a male dormitory room, although there were many people in one room, it was quite comfortable compared to other youth hostels because the space was large. Except for a few vertical beds, most of them are horizontal bunk beds, which are less oppressive. The spacious common area is also good, and there is a free drink to drink and a water dispenser to use. The front desk is friendly and courteous, and the service is very good. If you feel that the room is too cold at night, just tell the front desk staff and they will come to adjust the temperature settings.
