This is a decent very...”

Excellent area, nice street food around and a good atmosphere. Good bus links nearby.
Smoking really should be banned on the rooftop tent sleeping area. At one point my tent was full of smoke as the fan was pushing smoke directly into my tent. Really not pleasant.

Terrible”

The hostel did not disclose in advance the fact that they also put the laundry machine at the tent area. The noise and discomfort created by people coming up and down the stairs, turning on and off the light and the machine operating ruin the entire night for sleep. Also, they allowed people to check-in even at 1AM. The high heel shoe steps&#39; loud noise created by the late comer at the staircase awaked me again. I think this kind of arrangement&#47;service is disrespectful to people who were already in there. They should either disclose beforehand the actual noisy situation the tent tenants might encounter or stop selling the tent room products, which can hardly meet basic quality for stay -over.

sehr schön, aber etwas abgeschieden.”

Das Hostel ist sehr gemütlich, die Leute nett und man findet sich schnell unter den Einheimischen ein. In unmittelbarer Nähe des Hostels befindet sich ein Nachtmarkt, auf dem man morgens Frühstück bekommt und Abends alles was das Herz begehrt. Bushaltestellen, von denen alle Busse zum Bahnhof fahren, befinden sich ebenfalls nicht weit davon.
Die Unterkunft ist etwas außerhalb von Taichung. Es gibt zwar viel zu sehen, dennoch muss man für die größten Attraktivitäten eher weit fahren.

入口のセキュリティキーが最新すぎて勝手がわからず店員さん呼び出してしまいましたが、優しく対応してくれてシステム説明してくれました✨ 基本は勝手に入って出てくスタイルのようなので、気軽に1人旅したい人に向いてるかも。 夜市も歩いてすぐです!
ロッカーは少し小さいです。
