Not a great hostel and there are two glaring problems. Security, the main door is unlocked always and the reception is never manned so anyone can come in off the street and wander around at will. Not helped by the doors to the rooms not being very secure. Also, my room had a balcony but it's un-usable as it overlooks the main downtown Taipei MTR line. You will have trains clattering past loudly from about 6am to around 1am. Earplugs are essential for that plus very noisy plumbing.
The location is very convenient.. The price is great. The staff is very friendly.
