    You can have another better choice”

    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.

    Right next to Donghai University, near restaurants, shopping, and convenience stores. Five minute walk from bus stop. We stayed into a tent on thrall balcony, felt like camping. Great value for the cost and we enjoyed our stay.

    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.

    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…
