I booked the room of sharing bathroom with another mate. Please note that you are only separated by a curtain- I thought it was at least separated by a door- this is a key if you are a light sleeper you would know exactly when your room mate is back and also when they will be taking the bath in the midnight. Otherwise, cleanliness, privacy, amenities wise I have no issue. I arrived at the hostel at 245pm but they strictly only allow check in at 3pm (say even at 255pm they deny entry, ask me I would say is there a need to be so strict say if my room is already ready) I also particularly didn’t like the staff at reception, find them to be impatient for taking questions from me asking how to get to Taipei from Taichung. And they of course have to remind me “didn’t you ask me yesterday”, giving me the idea why did you have to ask again the answer is the same.
