Space Inn is ranked no. 1 in our list because its design is really unique. True to its name, Space Inn looks pretty much like a spaceship with modern furniture. Space Inn’s staff also wear astronaut uniforms.
The bedrooms are divided into two separate zones for male and female. Each room has about 5-6 bunk beds. The bed is 2.2 meters wide so it is really comfortable when sleeping. Each guest will be provided with a nightlight, locker with private magnetic lock, and when going in and out of the room, you have to use a magnetic card to open the door for your safety. Except for the private bed, all other amenities are shared with other guests such as bathroom (equipped with shampoo, shower gel and a large mirror), reading room (equipped with TV, DVD player and a few magazines), kitchen (equipped with coffee machine, baking oven, water bottle, tea and coffee etc.) and laundry room (you need to use coins for laundry). The impression of Space Inn is clean and modern. Although it is a dorm room, you will still feel super comfortable.
Space Inn is located really close to Ximen night market (Ximending), opposite is the famous TenRen Tea House and not so far from Taipei Main Station.

Located in the same building with Space Inn but on the second floor, Angels’ Hostel is also comfortable and pleasant. Angels’ Hostel is designed more simply but still gives a contemporary vibe (looks a little like CGV cinema style).
The bedrooms are also divided into male and female zones, each room has 12 beds (6 bunk beds). The beds at Angels Hostel are a bit smaller than those at Space Inn, but still decent. Besides shared amenities such as bathroom, dining room, laundry room, entertainment room, Angels’ Hostel especially has play station for those who are night persons staying up late at night, still jet-lagged after your flight or just want to play games, chat and make friends.
