A 5-star hostel/hotel - great location, facilities, staff! ”

I stayed in a dorm in Kiwi Express Hotel. My stay was wonderful, one of the best hostel I had stayed so far. Staying at the hostel was an enjoyment itself. Location is great - Close to lots of local restaurants! About 10-15 minutes to Taiching Main Station and 大魯閣新時代 (Tai Lu Ge New Age Mall), where I regularly visited Carrefour for quick shopping, and Zhongxiao Night Market. The hostel/hotel and its facilities were well-designed and systematic. The gender-based common bathrooms were very grand, well-equipped and clean! Dorm beds, pillow and blanket were comfortable! The rooftop was awesome - I really like the area! Staff were very helpful too. Iron can be borrowed with a deposit of NTD 100. I recommend placing a reservation, at a cheaper rate, through online platform like Agoda. Walk-in may be asked to pay full price.

Although the room is not very spacious, it is tidy, clean and modern. By considering the location, the price and the quality of the room, it worth as it's near the train station. The first branch of 春水堂is near by, 10 mins walk. Thus, this is a gd choice to stay with kiwi hotel.

Overall is good”

I was very suprised with the facilities and breakfast in Kiwi. The bed is wide enough for 2 people but the ladder is too difficult to climb up and down. The breakfast is awesome. They also provided the convenient plastic bag in the bathroom. Bicycles are free for you to borrow. The hotel is very near Taichung station but very far from Fengjia market. If you arrive late and just staye for 1 night, you can't go to the night market.

Clean & accessible”

The room was very tidy and clean. Lockers were provided inside the room. Room key supposed to slot near the lamp to have electricity for each bed allocated. Felt that's not user friendly as one cannot charge their portables and equipment if they were to go to the toilet as the room key is needed to go into the room. Overall is okay. It doesn't provide breakfast but small snacks in the morning with drinks at the roof top. There's laundry room if one needs to do laundry. Hotel is accessible from Taichung Station, about 5-10minutes walk. Shared toilets were clean. Toiletries such as Shampoo & Bathing Gel were available in the toilets as well as hair dryers. Will consider to book this place again! Good for solo travellers and group travellers.

clean, organised, strategic location

There are few KIWI hostel branches, this one is particularly hidden at the end of the road... walkable to bus station, food and close by attraction the toilets are consider slightly away from the hostel rooms, a little cramp as well, don't forget to get the passcard or you wont get back into the hostel room after shower/toilet. they don't serve breakfast but have light meals in the morning so you can have some drinks and bread before starting off the day. The staff are young, and hardly speak other languages except mandarin, but it's fine.

Classy”

Location, room, staff

Great location--it's just a short walk from the main Taichung railway station, so it's easy to get from the hotel to other parts of the city. The rooms were really nice. Each bed in the dorm room is like a small capsule, with its own private curtain at the end. The showers are down the hall, but I felt like there were always enough for the number of people on the floor. The hotel doesn't offer an official breakfast, but there's toast, coffee, and snacks every morning on the top floor. On top of it all, the staff was incredibly helpful every time I asked them how to get around town. Bring a towel; the hotel charges for one-time-use "paper" towels.

Very nice dorm, more than our expectation”

We book girls single bed shared room. The location is in the center city, very near bus stops to famous places and around 10 minutes walk to Taichung Railway station and Taichung Bus station. Staffs are very nice and can speak English. They also offer free bike. Our bed is convenient, separate, clean and secured. This is more than our expectation, especially with a very budgeted price. Thank you and we will come back.

search the hostel via google maps, the agoda app is good, but not exactly. for taichung you need 1 day for sightseeing, perhaps you can add a day for visiting the mountains or the sun lake. for these thinks is the hostel the perfect location. have in mind, that taichung has two stations one station for the high speed trains and one for local trains. the hostel is in the near of the local trains station.

Economical, great facilities!”

Staff are very friendly and helpful. Slippers are provided when you check in. The locker in the room is quite small, unable to put in any luggage. I like that there is a big mirror within your capsule bed. There's plenty of toilet and bath room, more than enough for use. Shampoo, shower gel etc are also provided. Although it was stated that no breakfast was provided but in the morning, there are breads, jams and some small dessert, which is already enough for breakfast if you are not very picky about it. There's also microwave, refrigerator and table games. Location wise, it's not the nearest branch to the bus station but it's considered quite near as well, about 10 walk or so...

But if you come and leave this hotel by taxi, please note this hotel is located on one way street, some taxi drivers may not find the correct way to come. By the way, there are many branches of Kiwi express hotel, make sure your taxi driver take you to the right one. lol

Good Budget-Friendly Hostel”

The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. My friends and I had a little trouble with using the shoe lockers (LOL) and they were more than willing to help. They speak English well (which is important for me as I do not understand Chinese). Breakfast is great; they offered soup and bread. Juice and water seems to be available throughout the day. Shower rooms are a little cramped, though, and I wish there were more organisers for me to put my stuff in. Bonus: they have shampoo and liquid soap. Our beds in the dormitory included a huge mirror and I wish there was more light inside so I’d be able to use it. Lots of places to eat near this hostel, too. On another note, there’s this particularly off-smelling couch in the lounge. I hope they fix that up. We usually end up going back to the hostel late and the great thing is that there’s always a receptionist. We had a nice stay at Taichung thanks to Kiwi.
