The only thing good about this place is the location. You will have difficulties finding the staff. There is no common room or anything just one dorm which could really do with some cleaning.


I really didn't want to write this review as the owner is a really sweet, kind woman but I have bites from bed bugs. Initially I thought it could be from the bus? But now I believe it's the bed. I have at least 139 bites covering my whole body. I can't recommend staying here because these last few days have been horrible. Have had to buy itch cream, anti scarring cream and am really, really hoping they haven't latched onto my pack as I still have another 2 months travel left.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Please accept my sincerely apology for your bad experience in my place, one or two guests mentioned about itching, and I ignored it cause I did see nothing. I really don't know where the bugs came from, but now I have disinfect the room, and I asked the guests one by one to make sure that they are all fine. Thank you for letting me know, hope you are getting well~


i do think auntie julie is a good person and very nice, however, its not clean inside the room and its too small for travellers, do not have space for gathering or relaxing.


Everything is good besides the WC is too small


침대에서 자다가 가려워서 ㅜㅠ 침대에 먼가사는거 같아요


Auntie Julie was so welcome and being nice to the guest. The location is also excellent.


Auntie Julie is a really nice taïwanese grandma, her room is perfect for a night !

Auntie Julie was very kind and being helpful on introduction.The Location was GREAT. I saw her changing the bed linen whenever someone checked out. However, there was no reception, no common room and I had 2 terrible nights because there were 2boys and 2 girls kept on talking and not switching off the light till 3AM even though I had already asked them to be quiet. I guess its the night market so people tend to come back late, walking and using the bathroom loudly like its still evening.


Auntie julie is very nice. I met new friends there and had nice trip in Taichung.

Auntie Julie is very nice .


Auntie Julie is very nice and helpful! This is also one of the only hostels by the train station, the rest are all by Fengjia Night Market. If you're looking for this location, this hostel is the way to go.

Only one bathroom for 8 beds. Excellent location, very close to public transportation. AC is old and the two fans were inefficient. Aunt Julie is very nice. Would visit again if in the area


Auntie Julie is very nice and helpful!Thank you so much!


Auntie Julie was super welcoming and hospitable. She called us (when we did not show up in time), which made us feel that she genuinely cared about the safety of her visitors. The place was a bit harder to find; however, with her guidance (via phone), it was easy. Also, the location was super close to the train station and the famous ice cream shop in Taizhong (I could eat there for days).


auntie julie is really nice and coo person. i enjoy listening to her story so much that. its super close to the train station and close to a famous ice cream shop. so its actually in a really good location.


Definitely would recommend and come again!


1) Location is good as it is just a 5 minutes walk from the train station. 2) Auntie Julie is friendly and a nice host. 3) Facilities are sufficient although the toilet is a little old. 4) Price is low Will definitely stay there again.

What you see is what you get. It's just a T0 with 4 bunk beds. If you are looking for a place to sleep, it works just fine. The other guests were complaining about bed bugs but I didn't got any.
