    Excellent stay”

    The accommodation was excellent despite its size. Toiletries was prepared and quite high standard for me. The room was alright; tidy and clean. The common area is also quite spacious for people to hang around and chit chat. Overall this listing is great and i'll definitely come back to this listing again if I visit Taichung again.

    Backpacker haven”

    Pro: 1. It provides all the basic necessity a backpacker needs for free except towel. 2. The bed is clean and very soft comfy. 3. Hostel look modern and chic. Love the effort they put in to create a place to sleep. Con: 1. Location to place of interest is not near. the best way to travel ard is to hop on a bus, which is free within 10km ride. The nearest bus stop is 10min walk from hotel. 2. Common area are abit dirty. Maybe due to high occupancy. 3. Guess are require to take off the pillow case, linen after check out. I notice some guest didn't comply. Wonder if the management ll change the linen or not cos guest are not require to inform when they check out. Summary: It was a pleasure to stay at this hostel.

    Very good”

    Personally I've found the place to be a big claustrophobic, as the room is small and there are a lot of beds. I like big and open spaces so maybe this is my preference. The bathrooms are clean and big or at least the one I've used was. The bed itself is fine. You get this huge heavy blanket that makes falling asleep very easy. The Internet connection is very fast, one of the fastest I've seen in a hostel. The common area is okay, with a kitchen, big table, TV, etc. Is it worth it? I have mixed feelings. I think all is good for the price apart from the room itself. It's uncomfortably small. If this doesn't bother you, go ahead.

    That noise”

    I hate to be writing this, because everything at the hostel was perfect. But I was sleeping at the female room and I could hear a noise resembling an elevator engine through the whole night. I didn't dare to complain because I didn't think it could be fixed. The staff was very friendly.

    No massive complaints here”

    Walkable distance from the night market which is sweet, and also a good place to meet other travellers - the common area on the third floor is a nice touch; it even has cooking facilities and a large fridge. The beds were extremely soft and comfortable with big duvets, but as many people have mentioned, luggage space is at a premium! The two small isues I had were that the first day the staff booked me and another guy into the same bed; lucky we realised before he had settled in! And then I booked a second night, but I had to move beds (meaning having to remove bedclothes and linen twice, which as well as being a faff is also pretty wasteful energy-wise). Besides that it seems like a cool place run by young people.

    Lounge is modern and feels more like a cafe. Walking distance to buses that would take you to most places. Would be helpful to indicate the direction of the female toilet sliding door on L1.

    Modern looking but otherwise mediocre”

    This was my first hostel where they didn't give people room keys and didn't let people lock the doors. The bathrooms were small but okay. Free laundry! Beds were comfortable with privacy curtains. Everything would've been fine except the attitude of the dude at the counter when I checked in was the worst I ever encountered. The other staff seemed okay but I didn't interact with them much.

    Had a taiwan friend drive and ride to bring me around Taichung. it is a short drive from the high-speed railway, very near Feng Jia night market which is GREAT place to find EVERYTHING. The locals all gather there for supper and shopping too. Not to be missed.

    Nice hostel very close to Feng Jia Night Market”

    This is a nice hostel within walking distance to Feng Jia night market. The facilities are very clean and modern. Everything works well in the hostel, from A/C, Wifi, keyless entry, etc. The bed is roomy and comfortable. Things that could be improved on are that there is very little space in the dorm rooms. Even if the room is half full, there is barely any room to walk through because of people's bags (even with lockers being used). Additionally, there are not many places to hang things. Like in the bathroom, there isn't much space to hang towels or clean clothes. Same is true in the room, no place to hang wet towels. The staff, while professional, were not super friendly. They were happy to answer my questions but were largely unwelcoming upon my arrival and departure. Overall, this is good value for money hostel.

    Too bright ”

    To define a good hostel, is the bed. Sadly, the design of the bed can be affected by neighbor. The light of other side of neighbor is on, I can see the light n cannot sleep well. I don’t know why they leave a space between each block n allow lights come in. Very irritating.

    Extremely frustrating”

    Having stayed in over 150 hostels around the world I am at disbelief how this hostel operates. 1) There is virtually no staff around. Yes, you read correctly, no staff. There was nobody in the hostel that you can ask for help, information or assistance. Being a non-Chinese speaking traveller, this made my stay in Taichung more difficult than it should of been. Just getting directions was impossible. 2) Check-in time at 5pm. Yes, again you read correctly, 5pm. I've never encountered a check-in as late as this and if you factor into account there is no staff, after waiting all day for 5 pm you again have to wait until one of their staff 'appears' to check you in. Idiocracy. The pin to get into the hostel is the same for everyone and the combination for your locker is not changed either. Meaning, any previous guest can enter the hostel, go into the dorm and take things from your locker. All in all, I'm dumbfounded as to what the owners think that a hostel actually is.
