I booked the room of sharing bathroom with another mate. Please note that you are only separated by a curtain- I thought it was at least separated by a door- this is a key if you are a light sleeper you would know exactly when your room mate is back and also when they will be taking the bath in the midnight. Otherwise, cleanliness, privacy, amenities wise I have no issue. I arrived at the hostel at 245pm but they strictly only allow check in at 3pm (say even at 255pm they deny entry, ask me I would say is there a need to be so strict say if my room is already ready) I also particularly didn’t like the staff at reception, find them to be impatient for taking questions from me asking how to get to Taipei from Taichung. And they of course have to remind me “didn’t you ask me yesterday”, giving me the idea why did you have to ask again the answer is the same.

可能因為連假的關係,所訂的背包房價格明顯較其他日期高出不少。車站前地點方便、高樓景觀佳,公共空間舒適,有不少書籍,房間乾淨、設備新,廚房設施完善,服務親切。 但早餐只有給50元折抵券,多半還是得另外自費才夠吃!
