I stayed at Sofia's place for 4 days with 3 other friends and it was great! Even though there was only 1 toilet, it wasn't that much of a problem because the house has cable TV and there were lots of channels to watch while waiting for your friend to bathe. They provided lots of towels, shampoo, soap, travel adaptors, hangers, etc. There is also a refrigerator, kitchen utensils, water boiler, washing machine, hair dryer, poker cards. There are also plugs to charge your electronics everywhere. This house has everything prepared! Since it was my first time to Taipei, I was looking for a driver to take us around and I was so happy when Sofia provided me a contact for a driver - which is her brother. It was affordable and Da Guo (driver) was really nice too! It saved me the trouble of going online to research for a driver. The house is clean and there is air con in 2 bedrooms and the living room. As for the Japanese room, it shares the air con with the living room. If it is still warm for you, they provide fans too! The Japanese Room has a big bed (for 2 people) and it is a thick mattress, unlike the photo provided that is a mat. The other room has 1 big bed (for 2 people), and another single bed - I think the photo doesn't justify the room size, it looks bigger in real life! Then there is another room that is slightly smaller, has a big bed for 2 people. There is a dustbin in each room too, and Sofia helps to clear them everyday. If you don't wish for her to clear the room, just close the door before you head out. As for me and my friends, we just put the bins outside the room and they will be cleared when we come back at night! If you are a light sleeper, I'd recommend you sleep in the Japanese room as it is less noisy. Don't get me wrong though, the other 2 rooms aren't super noisy but the night market is just right below so at around 1-2am, some of the vendors downstairs will start packing up and you can hear some metal clinking sounds but it isn't that bad at all. I couldn't sleep very well on the first night but from the second night onwards, I slept like a log. My friends all slept really well on all days so maybe it is just me! You'd be so tired by the end of the day, so the noise isn't a big problem. The location of the place is really convenient, there is a few convenient stores around and the MRT is a short walk away. Plus, the night market is right downstairs! Shillin market is quite a happening place at night so you don't have to worry about food and shopping! I would definitely recommend this lovely Airbnb home. Thank you Sofia...
People that wants to stay right at a famous night market in Taipei, this place will be highly recommended! It's located near Shilin Night Market, just a short distance walk for about 3 to 5 minutes. Transportation wise is very convenient, as the apartment is near Shilin MRT Station. I can't find any disadvantages with the apartment as Sofia has provided me and my friends of what we needed. Daily cleaning up is also done by Sofia and her husband, where they will wait for us to leave the house first then come up and tidy the place for us. Overall, the staycation of this place is awesome, and also thank you Sofia and husband for the stay! :)
6）冲凉房 - 干净。备有大小毛巾，各种沐浴露，洗发露。
（之前有读到一个曾经在Sofia家投宿过的人留言，说冲凉房潮湿，臭之类的问题 - 全都没有。冲凉房用了自然会湿，只要干了就应该不会有异味，所以可以断定是用户的问题）
1. Location: it sits next to Shilin market and about 6 mins walk from there. If you like the local foods, it's the best place to be. There are also streets of shops opening until midnight.
It's also very easy to travel to all the spaces of interest by bus or train.
2. Hospitality: the landlord couple are nice people. picked us up at Shilin MRT. If you take train, better to take exit 2 from Shilin MRT. It's an easier walk than from Jiantan station.
3. Value for money. If you travel with a family that require 3 rooms. This is definitely a good choice.
1. A bit noisy at night because of the market. But most likely you will be very tired by end of the day, and can still fall asleep quickly.
2. Rooms not so sound proof. You can hear voice from the next room.
I am dissatisfied about the hostel in this time travel. The service attitude not so prefect. When the television can't to function, we phone owner many time and after 1 hour he just give a call. For the television, we can see it already many year, but owner said is we do it spoil. About the living room' s light, it is not so well light, and darker then the warm color of LED light. The picture show us is very different with the actual one. When we switch on air conditioner and open the toilet's door, owner said we are waste the money to pay current fees. The reason we open door is humidity of toilet is too much for next person who want to use it.
First of all, we'd rather call our listing 'rental apartment' instead of 'hostel', About TV, March 30, you called us from 18:51 to 19:38 (while we were in the middle of dinner, we didn't hear those calls), right after we saw those missed calls, we called back at 19:46 and my husband showed up in 30 minutes (according to our guests we are responsive hosts), your sister and your father were there, my husband said to your family it's not possible to get a mechanic in this late night, he'll call for repair next morning, he also taught your family how to deal with malfunctions, definitely not blame it on your family, my husband said electronic devices sometimes just go crazy, as a result, you texted us next morning, TV worked again. About light bulb, we've never heard any complaint, as a matter of fact, our guests like this romantic atmosphere, but if you felt uncomfortable, you should have told us, changing light bulbs is the easiest part, isn't it? About AC, we always encourage our guests to use it, as long as use it right, otherwise just waste precious ENERGY (not money), we are religious and ecological persons, we wouldn't mind you said things like that, we still think you are great, we may never figure out why you think we blamed everything on you (in fact we didn't), let's say maybe just some misunderstandings, that's all. God bless!
