    Overall I really enjoyed my stay. The location was right in the old Taichung area which I greatly appreciated. I was able to walk around freely and enjoy my stay. The Train and bus stations are a 10 minute or less walk. My room was clean and I enjoyed it!

    Really enjoyed my stay here. Staff were vigilant and making sure guests were okay/non-guests were not entering the building. Bathrooms clean and all the amenities you needed were provided. Bedrooms equally clean and nice. Would stay again!

    The location is perfect and staff, too! You cannot bring ANY food to your room. It was a safe place and everything but I asked one girl from the hostel why there was one lady that came to our room super late, had no things with her and had a bit .. maybe vulgar outfit. The girl said, this woman stayed in the hostel previously. Since you enter to rooms with a code they give you, she had just entered knowing the codes. They kicked her out in the morning and apologized for the situation.

    We had a great stay at the hostel! The location is right by the main and bus station so you can easily do trips to wonderful places. Unfortunately the WiFi was not accessible the whole time, but they told us they’d fix it. The facilities were clean, beds were a little hard. There is a 7- eleven right across the street which is very convenient. If you’re looking for a great local place to eat, there is an amazing hotpot restaurant nearby. The is only ein Chinese.

    GOOD : Very easy walk from the train station. Close to the electronics market with lots of good places to eat (many Vietnamese places nearby). 7-11 right across the street. Nice kitchen area. Very clean facilities. Lockers available with refundable 100NT deposit. NEEDS IMPROVEMENT : I wish the hostel bunks had curtains and were more solid; every move on the top bunk is felt on the bottom bunk, but the beds are otherwise pretty comfortable. Showers were not hot during evening or morning hours.

    Good location, helpfull staff. It would be much convenience if the bathroom area is separated by gender. Overall, everything is good there.

    Very Good

    Hostel was very quiet and not the best for meeting other people. Beds were quite hard and uncomfortable, and the noise from the street outside made it difficult to get a good nights rest. The hostel was located in a convenient area near the train station and close to night markets. A good place to stay for a night or two but would be uncomfortable for a longer time.

    Beds were very hard, the AC worked but was not sufficient for the whole room since every bed was taken, staff didn't really care for you, room smelled badly and was very loud, you could hear the notice from outside although all windows were shut. No plug in next to the bed, no lockers, no light on the bed. I'd rather look for another hostel next time!

    Not a great hostel. No atmosphere, bit dirty, staff couldn't care less. The incessant beeping from the 7-11 over the road could be heard in the front dorms throughout the night and it drove me insane! There was nowhere to dry clothes after washing as the staff don't check what's been removed. The same clothes were hanging there filling the whole area for the 4 days I was there. The communal computers aren't connected to the internet either. Wouldn't stay again. Find somewhere else.
