What travellers think
Keep in mind that it's not heated! In the winter it can get pretty cold inside but with a thick blanket it was still ok. Staff is quite friendly but does not speak too good english. Dinner has to be ordered before arriving - otherwise you will get only instant noodles. It's fine that there's breakfast included, but I didn't really like it... But I'm european. I didn't get too much good breakfasts in Taiwan :D
