    Convenient and great service!!”

    Very near 2 mrt stations. You cross a park to get to the nearest one. So it's a bit of a scenic route. Clean, very comfy beds, really friendly staff. They anticipate what you need and immediately offer what they can help you with. We arrived early morning just when the reception opened. Our rooms were not ready of course. But they already checked us in and gave our keycards so we can go directly to our rooms during actual check-in time. They asked and kindly took our luggage up before we came back. If Taipei 101 has a high-speed elevator, for a small hostel they have a low-speed one! It's really just for taking luggage up and down. I take it as a quirky part of the hotel!

    Nice hotel”

    The good thing about the hotel is its location, being at the silent part of the city. So it's just a walking distance to coffeeshops, and restos, though kinda far from the train and bus stations. I love walking so when I was there, I really did a long walk to the National Museum of Natural Science, passed by a shoe store on promo, and other good places.

    The front desk service sucks! ”

    This hotel hired those who paid at an hourly rate. A girl who wore glasses worked at the front desk in the evening when we checked in. Her attitude sucks! She was a bit too frivolous to be a front desk receptionist. There are plenty of descent hotels around that area, we highly recommend you to stay in one of them rather than Kiwi Express Hotel – Taichung Station Branch II!!

    Our 4-day stay at this hotel was very satisfactory. My cousin and I will come back here if we visit Taichung again. All the hotel staff, esp. Chinnie, were friendly and assisted me in our accommodation problems. I like that shoes are not allowed inside the bedrooms. Instead, we were given clean slippers for indoor use. Breakfast was ok, and occupants are allowed to use the fridge. Shared comfort rooms are very clean.

    Location is slightly far away from the Taichung Station which takes you a 10 mins walk. The staff there is nice. There is room for improvement in the air conditioning of the hostel as you will feel hot when you roll down the roller blind of your bed.

    Small but complete and nice service ”

    My daughter and I stayed in Kiwi for 2 nights in a twin room. Room was kinda squeeze but good enough for us. Bed was very comfortable. We like very much that they got guests to change their shoes to slippers before they go upstairs and there are lockers to keep your shoes. This hotel feels like home. Very near Miyahara ice cream but take note it is close on Tuesdays.

    disappointed this time ”

    I have stayed with them for many times. This time I asked for lower bund bed in advance. The customer service replied to my request starting that they can't garuntee that, which I totally understand. When I arrived at the hostel, I was assigned to upper bund bed. There was a lower buns bed remained unoccupied for a whole night and the very next morning. That's is to say that I feel like they don't actually put your special request on their printed file and just randomly assign a bed to you. I have very positive experience staying with them. But after this experience, I may consider finding other hostel around the area.

    The dorm is clean. Bed is comfortable. You need to make the bed for yourseft when you check in but it's fine. Bathroom is clean with hair dryer, shampoo and washing lotion. The location is good. Near the train and bus station. Very conviniency to take the transportation to other county like Alishan or Sun Moon Lake. Staff is friendly and helpful. You also can leave your luggage at the dorm after check out. Staff will give you a number tag for your luggage leaving.

    Best overall hostel for our cross country trip”

    We stayed at a few different hostels and a hotel during our 2 week trip across Taiwan. Overall this is the best hostel we stayed at. Pricing was comparable for all the hostel we stayed at, so our opinion isn't because this was a higher priced hostel. The beds have proper walls with a window blind at the entrance of the bed to provide privacy. Because it wasn't curtains, but was proper plywood walls, sound proofing was so much better. Some beds have a larger shelf area (hence larger mirror too) to place your things. Lockers were small as usual (only fit a couple of bag packs or a hand carry luggage), but on the plus side is 2 compartment (1 larger for backpacks and 1 small for shoes) instead of the usual single compartment. However the rooms were roomy enough to store big luggage in the common area and not be a hindrance to other guest movement. 2 forms of free biscuit snacks are available at the eating area. Mattress was on the hard side similar to what's provided in most hostels.

    Fantastic!”

    Location was just nice being in between of everywhere and still accessible by bus and train. Staff are generally friendly during check in and was ok ok throughout my stay. The room and capsule are clean with comfortable bedding, together with a pillow and fluffy blanket. Lockers are provided but if you have oversize baggage, shouldn't be an issue to put them around it as long it didn't block the pathway. The bathroom was a little stuffy, probably lack of ventilation. However, only one toilet and one shower cubicle have a window and I think that's the only good spot to do your 'business' and shower with better ventilation. The hairdryer is provided. There are a few laundry baskets as well so you can do your laundry with a fee. The shower was equipped with shampoo, shower gel and cleansing milk and it smells good. Common area is nice. Breakfast is simple but it's just good to start your day. Coffee is provided thru the machine. Overall, I had a pleasant experience with this stay here.

    The staffs were really friendly! And I really like the part where the double deck bed was attached with USB port and also the adapter! So convenient as I don't have to rent the adapter 😎 I can charge both my powerbank and also my phone, save time! The location is quite a distance from the train station but I'm okay with that as I can explore other things when I passed by different shops.

    Inexpensive bunk bed VS expensive room”

    The hotel offers both hostel-style accommodation (bunk beds) and hotel rooms. Bunk beds are inexpensive, but rooms are -- nearly twice the price of similar rooms at other comparable hotels in the area. The big merit of this hotel is the rooftop lounge with fantastic city views and free service of coffee, cold drinks and snacks. That's the most enjoyable part of the hotel. The breakfast was not up to par though, only a simple soup, eggs, ham, toast and jam, and biscuits. simply too simple. Plus, if one arrives late, some items are already gone and not replenished.

    I would walk the extra distance from train station for the cheaper price. ”

    Cleanliness is still ok, the toilets have areas that have not be been cleaned for a Long Long time. Bed is comfortable and for SGD16 it’s more than worth it. I will walk the extra distance for the cheaper price. The staff is busy but quite efficient. But the door is very loud, each and everyone open the door you will hear it.

    Affordable and Convenient Location”

    Good Things: -It is affordable and the location is very near the train station and bus station which is a big plus for excursions outside of Taichung. -There are 2 local restaurants and 2 bubble tea place near the hotel which is a big plus for food options. -The breakfast was basic but good enough. Things to improve: -We stayed in a tatami room (Japanese style). The foam was quite thin but the blanket was very good. -Inconvenience of leaving shoes at the ground floor. -Good for young travellers in their 20s and 30s -Hotel cannot help you book tours
