wah, just came back from a 8d stay at the hostel and i must say it was pretty good! =)
the location is not bad, within ximending. and as long as your friend is a gd navigator you will never get lost with the maps provided!
the room was pretty clean, and the staff were friendly. the only drawback was that the computers were only available at the main building!
other than that, i would definitely stay there again when i go taiwan!
