Of course! As long as you can show that you've resided in Taiwan for five uninterrupted years and have been earning the requisite amount and been paying taxes each month of those years.
It's nice that your brother has Taiwan household registration, though. At least you'll have somewhere to stay.
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper
I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan

I'd see if the Taipei Hostel has vacancies, judging by the advice your getting from your brother, the backpacker set might better help you out.
