          This hostel is located near Tunghai Night market, which means food can be reached easily. Public transports is also easily accessible. Convenient stores are also located nearby. Only the washroom is a little too small.

          The facilities in the hostel are quite old and not clean. Location is a bit far away from the bus station and Taichung railway station, if you have big luggages, I will not recommend this hostel to you.

          Not what we expected. Stay on the rooftop that was very opened-air. A lot of mosquitoes and bed bugs. Very hot. Strongly not recommended!

          Le lieu est simple et très convivial. A quelques pas du marché de nuit, du campus universitaire et des lignes de bus pour aller au cœur de Taichung. Grâce aux informations de l'accueil, j'ai pu assister aux concerts de Noël sur le campus. Un excellent souvenir. Je reviendrai.

          初めての台中旅行”

          繁華街を少し横に入り静かな場所にある可愛らしいホステルでした。隣の店の豆花がとても美味しかった! 台中駅からはバスで約30分と離れた場所にあるので、時間が無い方や、駅周辺で済ませたい方には少し不向きかもしれません。 カーテンの仕切りがないドミトリー初挑戦だったのですが、やはりそれが個人的にはしんどかったかも…

          人員服務OK,價格很便宜,房間木門跟鋁門框不合有縫可看到裡外,隔音不太好,清潔度略顯不足,又剛好碰到台中供五停二分區停水,到晚上接近10點才有水可用,這點希望民宿可以事先告知房客,好有心理準備。

          床有點可惜”

          沒辦法20點前check-in,員工會傳簡訊告知相關資訊相當體貼,枕頭和床墊也很舒適,只可惜背包客床鐵架不穩,其他床有一點動作就會受到影響,包括搖晃和聲音,因此睡眠很容易被打斷,而床位也無個人拉簾,也會因室內其他燈光影響休息,建議日後床架與床簾可以列為設備調整項目,整體會更加完善。

          價格便宜,但進門後油漆味非常重,連二樓都可以聞到很重的味道,非常不舒服。浴室沒有浴簾,冬天洗澡應該會蠻冷的,而且洗澡時水容易潑出去,加上洗手槽很小,導致地板容易溼滑
