02 January 2014

Liked: The staff was friendly

Disliked: You need to walk in a dark side street to get to this hostel. There were no indoor slippers provided. No bedside shelf. I was placed in a top bunk with no side rails or anything to grip when going down the stairs. Also, when I needed to go to the restroom in the middle of the night, I had to make my way in the dark because the bedside light is only activated by the access key card, which you need to take with you to get back into the room.

Liked: It was very clean and spacious. The staff was helpful and enthusiastic. The universal outlets were very nice to have.

Disliked: The toilets and showers were located outside of the main hostel area. Whereas the hostel occupies the entire floor, the toilets and showers felt separate. Both were very clean, though.

Liked: Nice n big room for the 6 female dormitory. I can meet many friends from all over the world. The shower & toilet are clean and no bad smell! The location is with high accessibility which is near Taipei main station.

Disliked: Better arrangement for the flexible check in & check out time as this is a hostel instead of a hotel. Suggest lockers in the room.

Liked: Nice comfortable common area which is in front of the counter. I like the spacious dorm rooms and the staff there tries their best to help with sightseeing enquiries. It also helps that they're very cheerful and having great fun working there. That's why after my first stay there in May this year, I decided to stay there again.

Disliked: Lynn left no negative feedback.

Liked: Un bel hostel, bien situé tout près de la gare de train et de bus, on marche facilement partout. Très sécuritaire avec cartes magnétiques, petits casiers, lits confortables et tout est très propre. Wi-Fi laisse un peu à désirer mais fonctionne quand même. Ordis disponibles. Eau à boire gratuite. Personnel sympathique et parle bien anglais. Je resterais de nouveau!

Disliked: Honestly, not much, except I would put more info about activities and places to see, maybe organize activities.
