          The landlady was swift in getting us checked in. The place itself is a stone’s throw away from Feng Jia Night Market. If you are planning to explore the xitun district of Taichung part of Taiwan, I would recommend this place.

          Hotel has great location that you can just be outside and see nightlife in taichung, and walk 2-3mins to Fengjia night market. So many food you could try. 1mins to 7-11, watson, family mart. Hotel is inside old building so you should find Lavida hotel (big one next to the building of alibaba), the find lift of old building in the corner and go 7th floor. Staff could not speak English very well but she is ok if you text her.

          Clean, Near to Fengjia, will stay again!”

          Alibaba Hostel sent me a detailed instruction on how to get to the hostel prior to arriving. As I was traveling down from Taoyuan Airport, they helped me research on the bus number (cause i preferred bus) to take to their hostel. Even though the check-in was at 5pm, they accommodated to my request for early check in at 3pm. The location is a 3 minutes walk to Fengjia night market. The toilet is clean, and the space is actually pretty big. Towels and simple toiletries are also provided for. As the hostel is along a small street, there isn't an issue with noise from the roads. I would definitely go back there to stay again. The only con for some travelers would be that you would need to carry your luggage up a flight of stairs. There seem to be a room on the first floor. So if you really cannot climb any stairs, you might want to check the availability of that room first.

          Great location”

          Alibaba is strategically located at the heart of the Fengjia night market , it’s just a few steps away ! The female staff who has greeted us upon our arrival was super friendly and polite. Room was clean with two king size bed , it worths the price we paid. Downside of the property - The washroom was too small with poor air ventilation . The building was old and kinda dark inside but still acceptable. Its address shown on Agoda was not correct.

          A bit of challenge looking for the location if by public transport”

          I had a bit of challenge finding the location, as I took a bus from Taichung THSR and walked over alone using Google map, as my friends only arrived later that day and I had trouble contacting the owner in the morning. but once you find your way, the location is really close to Fengjia nightmarket and worth the price. My friends had no trouble finding the place cause they shared cab. I would definitely stay again if I want to visit the night market.

          A room with all hostel facilities (except breakfast and water dispenser) in a quiet neighbourhood ”

          Love the room design and the washing machine facility! Wish I could stay a few more nights in the lovely room! The room is equipped with a big TV and there are many channels available. You can enjoy watching TV by sitting on a sofa or a single armrest chair or an office chair. There is also an office table where you can work on. Highly recommended for those who wanna visit feng jia market or around xitun area.

          Good location and facilities”

          Hostel next to fengjia night market - cross the road and you reach the night market. Room is considered big for 2 and while the toilet is narrow, it is long and at the end of the toilet, there was even a washing machine! There are 2 properties that house rooms for Alibaba and we stayed at the one near the listed address. The neighbourhood gets too dark in the night though. Only saw the staff on the first day when we were trying to locate the place but no issues, the room was great.

          location is superb. just a few meters away from Fenshia night market. room is clean and the keypad-enabled lock makes it very secured.. and most importantly, Alibaba has the MOST accomodating staff. Booking again with them is definitely a no-brainer. Thank you Alibaba!

          Close to fengjia night market and various shops”

          We picked alibaba hostel as we wanted a place to stay near to fengjia night market, which is just right in front at the start of the main road. The room is good enough for 2 persons and is comfortable for us. The toilet is smal though although it is not an issue since we do not spend many hours in there.

          Staff is friendly and helpful. Our room is located at lower floor so we dont have to carry heavy luggage. The room is clean and spacious for two. Location wise is really convenient, walk less than 2mins to the famous fengjia nightmarket. Would definitely suggest this to someone who is visiting taichung!

          Good place to stay in”

          Room-wise, it’s big and comfortable. However the place can be rather difficult to find as there’s no sign boards stating the place’s name outside the building. Even after you manage to find the building and take the lift to level 8, there’s no sign at the entrance, hence I got confused if I was at the right place. Luckily the staff already contacted me through whatsapp message a few days before with instructions, hence I was able to send a message to the same WhatsApp number. After informing the staff that you’re at the entrance, she will come out and welcome you in. This place is unique in that it uses password lock for the main gate and the room door. The staff will send you the password code after you’ve checked in. Location wise, the place is good as it is near the very popular fengjia night market, so you can shop till late then return to the room for a good night’s rest. Will recommend this to other fellow travellers!:)
