Mia L. Solo travelers Taiwan, September 6, 2014
Aweful room with broken door.

1.it is close to the central station, so it's convenient to take train or bus. 2.There were not many ppl using the kitchen, so even the kitchen is very small,We could still cook our own food.
The front desk would not let me check in before 12pm. Just tell me to lock the baggage in lockers( cost $4/day). Finally, I checked in to the room , it was a 4 beds dorm, the door frame was totally broken , the door could not lock at all ! I told the staff if I could change to another room, but they said they couldn't change and there would be someone come to fix it the next day! But that someone NEVER come! It is cold at night, no heater! The room is dirty, so as the bed. though it was the cheapest, but I would still not recommend you to come here! The kitchen is really small ( only about 4 single beds big), the stove place in the corner, so it is very hard to cook if there are more than 2 groups!

Clay P. Solo travelers Australia, August 11, 2014
Horrible, dirty, the worst yet
Leaving the establishment, never coming back and being far far away from the place. Horrible, terrible, definitely the worst place I have stayed in the 15 countries I have traveled too. I arrived and there was no matress on my bed, there was no blankets for me only some sheets in the middle of winter, there were extra people staying in the room who shouldn't have been there. When they finally found me a bed it was broken and on an angle so I slipped off as I slept. The showers are disgusting mouldy and smelly and there was only 2 for the whole establishment. Rooms were unkept and smelled putrid. Everything about this place is wrong. Seriously just spend an extra and go another hotel 50 metres up the road. I cant believe that a place like this can be in business.
