Corner Backpacker Xitun

Booked a bed in the female dorm at the very last minute as my original plan was to stay a night at Taoyuan Airport to catch a 6.50am flight to Tokyo. Instead, rested for a few hours here and took a cab to Taichung Bus Terminal for bus to airport.

Friendly owner with a hand-drawn street map of the surrounding area (laundry shop listed on map was kind of dirty though; managed to find a cheaper and cleaner one around the same area instead). The toilets were clean and the beds relatively comfortable. There is not a lot of space for socialising on the ground floor, but it did not bother me as I was there for a short period.

It was fortunate that I got that last bed, although instead of sleeping I did make some new acquaintances (all solo travellers, but everyone had something in common with at least one person in the room).

Was able to leave the key without any problems. Thanks for the comfortable stay!

Hidden inside the town with surrounded by all the residential apartments, Corner Backpacker seems always be overlooked by backpacker fellows. Nice and clean room. But the most important is the excellent service and nice breakfast place. To stay in Corner Backpacker~ What you can get is the SUPER hospitable service + a tailored-made map + delicious breakfast in nice ambiance ...and more.

generally not a really "wow" stay, but I kinda like this hostel. As we arrived, the owner welcomed us and gave me a map of taichung city. He asked our plan, and explained specifically about the places we want to visit and how to get there. Not only that, without being asked he gave us several recommended cafes and restaurants that worth trying, and he wrote down every details on the map he gave. It helped us so much.
the location is quite nice. Ask visitor centre of taichung railway station how to get there, because you can take some buses from the station by using easy card without being charged!!! moreover, it's near from art museum and national museum of natural science, just few minutes walking from there.
But the lobby is very small, so no place to have a talk with your friends. No breakfast, but they gave us some coupon that we can use at cafe near the hostel, which seems belong to the same owner. We tried to use the coupons and I like our breakfast there, although they are not free.
The room is quite cozy, the shower room is big, not having lux design but it provides basic amenities like tooth paste, shampoo and soap.
