    I've been here several times, it's still a good hostel. However, the breakfast isn't as good as it used to be. Also, as a shared room with bathroom inside, there should be a sign to advise people not use hairdryer in the midnight, the noise is really annoying!

    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.

    The entrance seems to be open to public as everyone easily take the elevator and enter the hotel without any authority document or card. My dormitory room door is just near the the entrance of the hotel.

    Dear guest, actually, you won't be worried about security of hotel because the counter staff would stay in entrance for 24 hours. Whatever, hope you have a nice day and we always welcome everyone to Miniwest^^

    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.

    Nice and Kind”

    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.

    The owners are super nice, and the facilities were fine as well. But we got not really good experience with the cleanliness of the room. Maybe the owner need to communicate to the cleaner more to pay more attention to every detail of the room. But anything other than that was wonderful.

    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!
