diamondkhy An unexpected cozy feeling, just like a home. The staff is helpful, the bed is comfortable, the washroom and all kind of facilities is clean and caring, the location is near downtown which is easy to access anywhere in Taichung city. Highly recommended.

myedee25 over all it's great! it was hard to find, when i rode the taxi going to the place we had to circle around the area till we saw the head line of the hostel zipface. The owner's very nice, he drove me to the apartment where i'm going to stay in for the rest of the trip, the owner even treated me to a bbq stand where everything is good! the owner's very friendly and had so much stories to tell, the bed was soft and comfortable, interior is very unique, bathroom was small but cozy, there's no fridge in the room but you can stack some food at the counters area's fridge though. The place is convenient if you want to go shopping and taste authentic chinese street snacks, foods and drinks cause it's only a 5-10 min. away from the famous Feng Chia Night Market. I highly recommend this place, especially if you're up for a long term vacation in Taichung, the price is cheap for it's creativity and advantages too! :)

michaelbea as overall, the environment quite comfortable to stay in, just that the cleanliness of the room is advisable to improve more. Other aspects all quite ok. The environment worth for backpacker to re-visit back.

cytak22 The hostel is about a half an hour ride on a local bus (20TWD) from the railway station or if you arrive on the HSR there is a free shuttle. When we arrived with a confirmed booking for a private room with ensuite a lady who only spoke Chinese met us and showed us to a dingy room with no window, most of the free space was taken up with stored junk and there was no wall above the door opening. We protested and eventually were able to talk to someone in English by phone. Eventually we were taken to another building about 100 metres away where we ended up with what amounted to a private apartment with two rooms and a bathroom, both reasonably clean but quite basic. There was also a tiny fridge, a TV and drinking water was provided. However it was right above a busy intersection with noisy traffic all night. A few cheap restaurants nearby but not much else.
