The hostel is located right next to the very convenient city hall station and is close to many restaurants and attractions. There is also a good view of Taipei 101.
The rooms were of an average size for a backpackers but we found leftover trash in the gaps between the beds. There was air conditioning which was good.
The toilets were dirty and very crammed. There was even a piece of carrot in one of the shower cubicles. There wasn't any place to get changed either which is inconvenient for girls.
There is a common area with wifi and a tv with no remote. Security is alright with a swipe key card and a drunken yelling security guard who was very intimidating when we first arrived.
Stay here if you need a very basic place with little extras.
