    The staff are super friendly and accommodating. I met the owner Yoyo and she was the best! She made sure my stay in Taichung would be great! She gave me maps and instructions as to where to go and what to do in the area! I would definitely come back again here! 👍🏻

    Matchbox is a great spot in Taichung! Friendly staff and easy to find. There were especially helpful when I had an early flight and were able to arrange an airport pick up. Even the bar there was nice with interesting Taiwanese brews. Also very close to night markets too. Hoping to visit back one day and recommend this hostel to other travelers as well.

    Somewhat outside of the city center (which makes you reliant on city buses) but close the the university and near a lot of night time eats. Nice and quite street, really nice, clean atmosphere. Owner is really friendly.

    They have an option to rent a tent and I did, it was a bad choice. Generally soeaking it’s a nice place, just don’t rent a tent because it’s only 5 dollars. The tents are all placed at the balcony and at night it was very hot and humid staying there. Do not rent the tent.

    Not very clean (specially the shower) and not very quiet... But we only paid 5 euros to sleep in a tent so we couldn’t expect more.

    Not great. My booking was messed up and then I had to waste hours of my time trying to find alternative and more expensive accommodation. I don’t think people realise how diffficult that is in some locations. In the end my limited time in taichung was reduced after spending half a day searching for and booking accommodation in desperation to find anywhere decent. I had a look around the accommodation and it did not stand out to me as great compared to other hostels I had stayed in in Taichung.
