4/10 Fair

I guess it’s just the timing but, I stayed two nights and never saw the free coffee or tea that supposed to be in the kitchen (there was free water dispenser though), then when we come back around 10 am on the 1/21 they saw as at entrance but didn’t say anything about it and we found that there was no electricity in the room and had to go downstairs to ask what happened to the electricity and they said: oh there is no light till 3pm. I don’t know if that was only for that day or if it’s a regular thing but... couldn’t you just notice us before we go up at the moment we greet each other 😓

I stayed here for one night, so I don't know if my experience can serve as a true representation of the place, but here we go. Overall, the place is rather big, and you get a lot of place to just sit around and chill. They also have a kitchen, so you can cook for yourself if you want. The biggest problem I had was the room. It was a dormitory-style ensuite room. I know dormitory ensuite can go both ways where it can be convenient to have a bathroom in the room, but your neighbors might be crazy and want to take a shower at 2 in the morning. Luckily, all my roommates had common sense. The problem was that the bathroom smelled bad. The whole room smelled like the bathroom. We had a window, but the window screen was broken. I didn't want any bugs in my room, so I decided to just cope with the smell. The bathroom could use some updates, but it wasn't exactly gross. It just smelled like a public bathroom. The location is quite nice. It's very close to the station and supermarkets. Wifi in the room was also very usable.

The room was clean and very nice but there was a lack in the community feel that hostels usually have. It wouldn't be easy to make any new friends. Still a good location and comfortable place to stay.

Value for money
The place was clean as you’ll have to change to indoor slippers before entering, however the walls were really thin and I could hear the rain at night. The mattress was thin too but okay for one nights sleep. The attached bathroom was clean and there was soap provided. Location wise it was a 5-10mins walk from Chiayi Train Station and very convenient with many food choices around. Wenhua Road night market was also walkable around 15 mins away. The staff were really helpful and there’s a basement open area you could use, sofas and even a Mac desktop! Do note there are no elevators so best to travel light, or you could ask for a helping hand!

Good location
Good location, comfortable and clean room. The communal area is on the top floor and includes the roof terrace. It's a shame that there isn't much seating on the terrace and that the area looked forgotten. I had to check out before breakfast started but the staff helpfully told me where the suppliers were and that I should help myself.
