“I will not stay in this hotel ever again.”
Reviewed 10 January 2014 via mobile

This address on tripadvisor is not the exact location of this hostel, which is really disturbing and confusing. There was no reception and we had to call the phone number offered and found out that the only staff (the owner of the hostel, maybe) is a locksmith. In order to enter the hostel, we had to walk through an alley and get into a strange door (sort of a back door of the lock shop). It smelled pretty bad and disgusting when we enter the ground floor.
The wifi reception is also disappointing. The room is much smaller than we thought and our floor was a total firetrap.
There is no any certificates in this hotel. I won't stay here ever again.

Stayed January 2014, travelled with friends

Funny name for a motel. We arrived early to find out there was no reception. We had to call and wait for someone to come on scooter for 15min (ok not that long). Only found out a reception (which also functions as a helmet store) opens later in evening.
Cramped staircase. It feels like if there was a fire, everyone in the hotel would get trapped and die- do not encourage this. It has to be illegal. The pictures are deceiving- taken with wide angle from the very far corner. In fact, the rooms are old, damp, and very small, maybe 10m2 in area.
Bathroom- hazardous boiler in the shower room. Can die electrocuted or smth.
The good- there was wifi, and the location is not too bad except for the dirty scooter repair shops on both sides.

I really love this hostel. It is really awesome location in Taichung. Less than 5minutes walk to FengJia Nightmarket.

The hostel is very clean and provide the things you need. Such as toiletries , clean towels, refrigerator and etc. There is a big TV too !

I love it a lot !
