i stayed in this hostel in 2012 when i was in taichung. location is fantastic (at fengjia night market) and price was good but check in was quite tricky, not sure who and where to get the keys from, FYI anyway i contacted the person in charge today and she indicated that they are not operating anymore.

Take note travelers. This is not a hotel. It is just an apartment. And it is illegal as a sign put up by the management at the main door says it does not welcome foreigners for lodging at the premises. The service was poor and we could not contact the person in-charge from the second day onwards.

Good location, near Feng Jia night market. Waited very long to check in and reception area is opposite the hotel. Room is small but you get what you pay for ( so pay more if you wan bigger rooms). Breakfast was very simple just a toast and a drink.

stayed for one night last week and it was a great experience. Looks more like a hotel room rather than an apartment. It has a very small kitchen should you want to do any cooking, but I doubt there's a need since there's abundant choices of food a the Fengjia market just down the road. And the rental comes with...

Absolute steal for it's prime location, right next to Fengjia market. Room was big, clean and comfortable. Another big plus was how friendly and helpful the staff were. We had some trouble locating the office on the day of check in though, as there weren't any obvious signboards. The students around there were very friendly and helpful though, and pointed...

Stayed at this place during march 2012 for 1 night. The room is exactly the same as in the picture in Tomato room's facebook album. The basic stuff like toothbrush, toothpaste, water, bath towels and hairdryers are provided. Breakfast is included too, however, we topped up some $ to get a better meal. To get to fengjia night market, you...

We spent 1 night at this cosy apartment and it was an unregrettable decision. It's mintues from Feng Jia Night Market where you can stuff yourself silly with the wide array of food. Will definitely stop by the next time!

We choose Tomato Rooms because it is located near Fengjia Night Market. The room is clean and nice and the security in the apartment is good too. Staff were very friendly and you can ask them for tours around Tai Chung. It helps to write down their contact number and address to pass to your taxi driver as many drivers...
