A well managed hostel with cozy rooms and living room for breakfast and hang around. Very friendly owner. For non-chinese speaking guests it may be a bit challenging to reach the hostel. 2 buses to take (bus 161) and at the hospital there was no bus stop indicated for the connecting bus 146. The "art-road" where hostel is located is nice and a safe area.
The hostel is poorer than any other hostel that i have ever lived in Europe and China. The room is not good and the stairs are wet and dirty,and what makes me amazing is the hostel is hidden in a dirty and old apatrment. I perfer to spend more money living in a good hotel than choose the hostel i lived.

This place may be yout best stay and it might be just an avarege stay. This place is very hard to find if you don't read Chinese and the location is far from the main station. However, the area is pretty nice. This hostel holds a lot of potential but it depend a lot on which mood the owner is in.
Overall is ok the room is clean, but the wash area is filthy, it need to clean the mirror and flame those were cover by the dust. A big roaches came out from the ground floor and appear on the bed. O course we killed it and there were three young guys there in the room. Just a lost of bottles on the kitchen counter like a bar setting. When I walked up the stairs from outside, I was shock to see all dirt all the way up to four floor. That really turned me off because I never see a run down.
We stayed at Dandelion Hostel for 1 night. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is very homey, it feels more like a homestay than a hostel, what we liked very much. The hostel is located in a business district and the area is very secure and nice. But note that it is a 30 to 40 min ride to the HSR and the bus terminal to sun-moon-lake. If you are looking for a friendly, homey and secure place, Dandelion is the right choice!
Good host . Help us a lot, include helping us plan where should we go and checking the bus time. One drawback is the not cool air conditioner of 7 mixed dom. but overall is good , so warm and feel like living in my home.
If you're looking for a nice hostel in Taichung, your search is over, this is the right place you shouldn't miss in the name of god! The host (小謝 xiao xie) is an extremely friendly Taiwanese you can ever meet. He is literally a walking travel guide book, who knows every nook and cranny of Taiwan at fingertips, before you head out anywhere you MUST ask him in advance to get a good deal. The environment of hostel has its unique characters that make you feel very at home.
The boss is very nice to everyone and his cooking is excellent!!!! the atmosphere in the hostel is very well , it makes me just like back to HOME. the location is quite good cos just take 15 mins from the airport and also easy to go other place just like some nigh market. P.s it will be better if the boss can sell the lunch or dinner box to us , coz his cooking is really nice!
