I liked to stay at Holo Family house - I had a single room with shared bathroom. My room was clean and had a good bed, the bathroom was also clean, the staff was helpful and english-speaking. The location is centrally located (thus the room is not absolutely quiet, because you hear the traffic noise in the morning, but the hostel internal is quiet). The breakfast has been somewhat weard and I preferred to buy my own stuff after my first "breakfast"-try - but, not everything can be perfect.
Holo is really an excellent hostel with very friendly hospitality. The staff are friendly and helpful and make you feel like staying at home. Its location is very convenient just next to the main Taipei train station, high speed train station, MTR and long distance bus station within 5 minutes walk. Really, you cannot find any hostel with such services, cleaniness and location with such a price.

I stayed in the Dorms for 2 nights. Great location in the center of Taipei and generally clean, but there was none of the warm/personal feel that I had come to expect from other hostels in Taipei. I forked over the slightly-higher per-night fee in expectation of their "hearty breakfast" but was disappointed by their porridge and hardboiled eggs. Also, wifi availability in the rooms is limited to one person so dormmates were always accidentally kicking each other off and the common room was tiny.
Great location but cranky staff.. OK for short stays I guess. Near shops which are good supper locations :-)
