Best Hostel I have ever stayed at”

Prior to this trip, I was so hesitant to make a booking in a hostel due to couple of bad experiences I had staying at a hostel. But due to alot of outstanding reviews and comments about this hostel, I have made a risks of booking and I have never been resentful about that decision. The place was so pleasant, clean and peaceful. it is located at the west district of taichung where a lot of good cafes and places sprawled. I also love the fact that it is near bus station. I love that the rooms are spacious and the bathroom is squeaky clean. You will not feel like your are sharing comfort room with others as there are good number of cubicles (both bathroom and comfort room). I also love their free breakfast. I will surely stay here should I return to Taichung.

First Time Experience ”

This is my first experience to stay in a dorm style room and shared bathroom with other travellers. I would say it was a great experience with Stray Birds. The hostel located at a convenient place where you can have pharmacies and convenience store just right the corner. There’s a very large common area with dining and kitchen area where you can chill out. The room is small and would be cramp if 4 people with 4 luggage, but this may not a problem for me. Most importantly, it is clean! The bathroom area has poor ventilation but still fine, again, it is clean! Staffs are good, place is clean, I highly recommend this hostel, and I will choose this place again if I come back to Taichung.

Excellent accommodation with spacious and nice common room. A very nice place for meeting new friends, dine and leisure. It highly secured with door lock after and before service hour and this ensure the safety of each guests stayed. Besides, room card is required when entering either main door, floor door or room door. A post office and ATM are located at the side of the stray birds Taichung hostel. There are many restaurants and cafe nearby. I will recommend it to my friends. Also, I will would like to stay there again when I visit Taichung in the future.

The Best Hostel for my Taiwan Trip No.1”

I've been to Taipei-Hualian-Taizhong And The Stray Bird Hostel in Taizhong was the best hostel in my Taiwan trip. Location is ok for me, as i spend sometime to find it (i passed by and i didn't notice it). hopefully there was an obvious signboard to so that people can see it easily from far. The Staff was helpful, interior design of the place is superior, towel provided was too good, balcony for cloths drying, cleanliness is great, breakfast was good as well. Thanks for the great place!!

What you pay for what you get.”

I was the last-minute member of my friends team. Therefore, I have to book own place to stay for joining in them. That's not a big deal. Well, the location is good, not far from everything. You could grab a Ubike exploring the city. The staffs here are quite friendly, but my four-beds dorm has a little smell of manhood, I'm not sure if it's from the other three teenage boys or not... and the bathroom and toilet without A/C is not quite comfortable, especially when you're having number 2 in the summer..., lack choices of breakfast, and you have to pack up the sheets before you check-out... nevertheless, the mattress is not bad and very clean...and I assume it's a nice low-cost hostel in the middle of Taichung.

Wonderful Experience”

LOCATION: In city center but not particularly close to the train station nor any of the attractions I had on my itinerary. I took an Uber/taxi to all my destinations so keep this in mind for transport. STAFF: Claire checked me in upon arrival and she is absolutely the sweetest. Wonderful attitude and provided good advice for traveling in Taichung. FACILITIES: Common areas are clean and spacious - additional points for the cute furnishing and interior decorations. Restroom could use more hand soap, though. There was no hand soap in the restroom when I arrived and later on, only one container was added for four sinks. In the room, you get your own locker which can be locked with your key. Agoda had advertised the room as having windows and a city view but apparently there was a mistake on their part and most dorm rooms don't actually have windows.

Best hostel in the world!?”

You should definitely stay here! Awesome, big, calm, common space with couches and coworking tables. Even the hallways are nice. Big roof terrace with a view over the city and comfortable seats. Clean, nice dorm rooms with perfect privacy curtains. 5th floor is female only. Numerous showers with perfect water pressure. Shampoo, shower gel, towels, hair dryer and even ear cotton buds and floss are provided. Washing machine and dryer available for 50 twd each. There's a small shop with some noodles and drinks. There is luggage storage. The neighboorhood is great, central and near nice parks. A bit more expensive on weekend than week nights. Very friendly, respectful, interested and helpful staff. Free breakfast from 7:30 tot 10. The equipped kitchen is free to use for cooking. I prolonged my stay several times because I like the city and the hostel so much.

Everything u need for a good price”

Conveniently located within short walking distance from Parklane. I stayed at the 4 bed female dorm & the shared toilet was clean and well equipped. Didn't have to queue for shower at all. Only downside I can think of may be that the locker is not big enough to fit my luggage, and the lock buzzing sound can be quite loud especially when your roommate checks in late at night & have to use it.
