My friends and I went on a 10 days travel around Taiwan and among all the minsus we stayed, we didn't really like this minsu very much.
Firstly, I think they are not allowed to operate their minsu in the building. We did not know this prior to booking over email. And after payment is made, the management sent a lengthy email which told us not to talk to people in the building or answer any questions they ask. Not an issue initially until I heard some lady commented," they are tourist." Felt like we just committed a crime for being tourist :O
The next issue I have is the mattress. Because we booked a quad room and was allocated the room with stairs (sort of), the mattress at the second floor is very thin. It's just a thin mattress and not a proper bed. This made sleeping very hard.
Then the horror story was. We were locked out of our door. Their door is pin operated and one night the door just wouldn't open. We tried calling the management at 10pm but no one answers the call. Luckily after 15mins of trying the door opened. Couldn't imagine what will happen if it doesn't and we couldn't get any help. (They forbid us to talk to anyone rmb)
And lastly, the management is late in coming to reclaim the keys. We were going to the airport so it's especially annoying. By right we can just leave the key on the table and leave. But because they took 1000nt deposit from us on the first day(not sure why also, they didn't explain) we have to wait for the person to arrive.
They left this book in the room for people to write their reviews and was reading it through with my friends. And most of them didn't have a good experience as well. One of them commented that towels isn't changed for 5 days :O
I will definitely not return to this minsu. Oh ya if you want to drop your luggage after you check out, you got to lug it to another building which is a distance away. That's where their office is.
Previously when I stayed in taipei, I stayed in cityinn. Although small, I felt more homey because the staff is really more friendly and helpful.
