“Love this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

Like Enhui, I loved this Shin Shin Minsu! (欣欣民宿 in Chinese characters.)

Although the rooms are small, but they are comfortable enough. Bathrooms and rooms are nothing to shout about, but are basic, clean and comfortable enough to stay in. :)

The winning point here is the warm hospitality of the owners! The elderly boss invited us to drink tea by the warm fire place, and chatted with us while we were hanging around in the afternoon. The young boss (the son) was friendly and warm too! When he saw that I was so cold, he offered heat packs for free! They even asked if we would like to wear the costume of the minority group and take photos with it! For free! You would feel like family with them if you stay at Shin Shin Minsu.

Although the place is small and slightly old-looking, we will never forget the hospitality and warmth of the owners. I recommended all my friends who are going to Alishan to stay there! Highly recommended for those who want a warm and cosy homestay!

Shinshin is a homestay with the most awesome location - is right next to 7-11 in Alishan, whereas the rest of the other accomodations are tucked away in another lane. It is also a 3-min walk to the train station and that is great especially when you have to catch the 530am train to the mountain peak to catch the sunrise. zzz. Despite this, it is very quiet. We had to climb 2 flights of narrow stairs to get to the room, and though the room is small, it is very pleasant and comfy, all furnished in wood.

Our hosts were a young couple and an elderly couple, friendly enough, and gave us advice on how to plan our route in Alishan, helped us with laundry for a small fee. The elderly man, "boss", was the sweetest, it was freezing so he invited us to help ourselves to brew some tea and laughed cos we had no idea, and on our last day we had to take a coach to Sun Moon Lake and he made sure that we got seats and tried to help us carry our luggage despite being advanced in age. They sell local sweets and tidbits so before we left we bought some from them for keepsakes and they gave us a discount - not profit oriented nor money-minded at all.

I would recommend staying here at Shin shin if you're looking for a homestay and want to experience some local hospitality!
