Excellent location, close to train station. Nice and helpful staff. Great common room with well-equipped kitchen. Dorms well thought and designed. Not too many good places to eat in the immediate vicinity.

The Kiwi Express hostel really does things right. From the front door all the way to the 9th floor, their property is clean, well maintained and provides the right amount of "hostel" like atmosphere as well as some privacy for its guests. You won't be sleeping shoulder to shoulder with anyone as the beds are separated by walls, but the... More

It's more of a hostel. The common area in a room is rather small. Unlike other hostel, they don't have bunk beds. Kiwi express provides more like a cubicle for each person. The toilet were really small and cramp. It was an average experience there. The staff there were nice and kind in trying to manage our requests.

If you're taking the HSR into Taichung, this hotel is minutes walk from the Taichung train station that links from the Taichung HSR station. Having said that, there's not much going on near the train station. It's considered the "old city" so most of what I wanted to see was at least in the center. However all the bus stops... More
