06 September 2014 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The location is very convenient. The host is very nice and helpful. Price is low.

Disliked: The facility is VERY old and not very nicely kept. They do have newly renovated rooms that are nice and clean, but unfortunately the room I stayed in was not one of those. Well, at least the air conditioner worked fine and bathroom was okay.

Liked: Convenient location, quite near (about 5 minutes walk to) Taipei station.

Disliked: No lift, only 1 toilet to 10 beds. We stayed on 4th floor, very inconvenient to bring up luggage and for old folk (my mother is 76 years old) to walk up the staircase.

Liked: Reasonable price for all the stuffs. Near the Taipei Station and very convenient. The bed is clean, although i live on the second floor, that's not much voice i can hear at night (different from the previous comment I saw). There are also fridge, TV, computer, etc.

Disliked: The bathroom can be cleaner. The toilet is quite dirty, I rather use the toilet outside.

Liked: The staffs are friendly, it is near to Taipei Station too. But still need to take transportation to night markets.

Disliked: I lived in 3rd floor and i really think the toilet is really smelly and suffocating ... rubbish in the bin next to the basin in kitchen were not removed. not much places for you to put your things if you have the upper bed.
