Auntie Julie was super sweet. We arrived earlier than expected, but she still helped us get settled and let us drop off our luggage. She provided a map of local attractions and how to get to them with public transit, which was very helpful. The bed was very comfortable with nice, clean sheets. We definitely enjoyed our stay.
This place is truly awful, don't stay here unless you absolutely have to. 'Auntie Julie' turned out to be a chain smoking overweight man in his underpants. It's a single converted apartment, dark dirty and cheap. The sheets were awful, 100% polyester it felt like sleeping in a hot plastic bag. I didn't feel secure and honestly couldn't wait to leave. There must be better places to stay in Taichung.
Fridge leaks water when turned on, so basically the fridge is not working. Cosy room. The corridor feels dodgy but it was safe staying there. Very convenient, 5 mins walk from the train station.
the hostel is nice, clean and spacious. Auntie Julie is very nice and helpful! And it is near to the bus and railway station, this is the most important!
Auntie Julie is very hospitable. Location is not hard to find, the entrance faces a big drain, building is next to miyahara (worth a visit! Opens at 10am!). Facilities are fine, complain only if your room can do twice better.
The location is quite good as it is near the Tai Chung Station. The cost is acceptable and the environment is comfortable. As it is a shared room, you can meet other people easily. If you travel in Tai Chung for a while, I highly recommend you to stay in the hostel.
Auntie Julie is very friendly & super helpful. She gave tips on nearby eateries & day trips from Taichung. Location is great as 5 mins. walk to train station as well as many bus stations. The building that the hostel is in is kinda of old & rundown, but there's security near the lifts. Perfectly safe! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. Thanks for warm hospitality. Cheers!
