my room just near the ktv on behind the building. It’s extremely annoying that I could still hear the crowded noise and singing at midnight around 2-3am.

Greatest bed features, but smallest rooms ever
In terms of dorm bed, this is the best I've ever seen. Each bed has heavy duty curtains, power, and even its own TV. However, the room is simply too small. Don't even try to fit anything bigger than a medium-size suitcase inside the room. There's barely enough floor space for people to put their shoes. Since the beds are also connected horizontally, there aren't any horizontal bars on the beds or hooks to hang your wet towels. The owners got too greedy designing the rooms, stuffing them like sleeper trains. I also had the unfortunate luck of having guests in my room, who talk in normal voice level well after midnight. This is rare in Asia, and I had to tell different sets of people to be quiet on all three nights of my stay. I didn't experience this kind of cluelessness even in party cities. At least the loud people in those party cities were drunks outside the room. The annoying noise here was inside the room. The public hangout area, elevators, and service staff are great, but there are plenty of hostels in Taipei with equally or near-equally outstanding facilities, service, and bed features at about the same low cost. No need to struggle inside these tiny rooms.

The sound proofing was bad. You can hear everyone walking and talking outside the room. But the price is good and rooms are clean.
