Cozy, well-designed place with friendly staff”

I really enjoyed my stay. The staff was very accommodating, the bed was incredibly comfortable and the amenities were more complete than I had thought looking at their profile. I loved the interiors and convenient location. I spent two restful nights at Mini West and would definitely stay with them again.

Even though the room was small and compact, but it is just enough for a solo traveller. The room was really neat and clean, however, bathroom's water drainage was slow. Many buses will pass by this hotel. About 2-3 mins walk to bus stop to many other places of interest in Taichung. Value for money as well!

It is ok ”

There was only 1 mixed room of about 30 beds, my neighbors were two men who snored a lot... you need to check if there is hot water before using the bathroom and if its not, you need to ask the staff (I once took bath with cold water cause it was too late to ask for hot water). The rest is fine, I like its lobby with brightness. Maybe if there is next time visiting Taichung, I will try other hostel in other area.

Good point : The staffs are really kind. And they can speak in English. The dormitory room was clean and also bathroom too. It was really good upon it's cheap price. Bad point : The dormitory room is a lil bit unconvenient. Because you have to use it with Male and Female. You have to be careful when you change your clothes. And the single room was really nice and very very clean..however it was really cold too..becuase of air conditioner.

隔音不是很好 ”

My total stay was four days as I went apartment hunting. Let me share the bad first: the entrance way from the street to the elevator just plain stinks. It was unwashed and reeked of cigarettes. This might not be the hostel's fault as there are stairs leading to a bar/pub in the same entrance, but it's first impressions that sometimes leave a negative feeling during the rest of the stay. The wifi was intermittent during peak hours and the bread served during breakfast was more than a day old. The plywood co-ed box I slept in was decent and clean as well as comfy, but the noise from the karaoke bar below the hostel could be heard after hours. Strangely enough, conversations from the lobby/lounge didn't leak into the sleeping area even when the sliding door opened and closed frequently by the many a night-owl guests that rifled through their belongings all hours of the night. Lastly, the day-time manager berated the night shift desk clerk as I ate breakfast. I speak Mandarin and felt uncomfortable during the exchange. The good: it's price was quite good for the accommodations offered. The bed was comfy and the ac was a refreshing break from the humid, sticky icky day time heat. The showers were nice and the water temperature/pressure was easily adjustable. The staff were friendly and quite helpful and spoke English well, except for the hostel manager whose English was quite poor. Overall, worth it!

The location is quite nice as there is a bus stop in front of the hostel, which can directly bring you to Feng Chia night market (a bit far though). The dormitory room is clean and the pillow and bed are very comfortable. However, the shared bathroom is sort of wet and not very clean. Some of the drains are stuck with hair. Overall, it’s a nice place to stay for travellers with a limited budget.
