I stayed here twice and would stay here again.
The location is fab, right on the night market, 10 minutes from the MRT and close to 101. There are plenty of shops around to get all your essentials like Watsons, 7/11 etc.
Dorms are spacious and kept fresh by reprinting on a regular basis, they have funky sheets, lockers and ample space so you don't feel cramped. We also tried a budget double which had no window, but with great air on this made no difference.
The social area has a massive projector with cable TV, there is a basic kitchen and cheap laundry. The staff are super helpful, they saved us from having to rough it as they often keep an empty room for emergencies. They were also happy to received a UPS parcel for me while I toured the island and kept it safe until my return.
Vanessa, Peter and their staff are all very knowledgable about everything a traveler needs, there is no reason to avoid we this place. Lastly the prices are probably the best in Taipei, you couldn't really ask for more.
