Interaction with Guests
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!
It was a good decision to stay at Shilin Night Market itself. We were running on a tight schedule and staying at Shilin would mean we didn't have to set aside 1 night to visit the market simply because we will be walking through the market to get home every night! Lots of food stalls just below the apartment too! Staying at Sofia's place also gave us a feel of how the locals lived, which was a great experience.
Sofia and her husband were very hospitable. They made us feel very welcomed and even helped us arrange transport to the airport upon our request. Highly recommended!
My family and I had a comfortable stay at Sofia's. Sofia and husband are friendly and willing to guide us how to get around in Taipei city. Shihlin night market is just downstairs so it's convenient to get food and shop. Train station is just less than 500 meters away so it's within walking distance. There are 3 rooms with a living hall and a kitchen, so everyone gets to have their own space.
The only downside of the unit is that there is only 1 toilet in the house, so we had to take turns.
Thanks Sofia and family!
Very good experience staying at Sofia's. Real place is different with photos but which is even better. 3 rooms with lots of space. Sofia provided all we need such as hair conditioner, tooth brush, face cleaning cream, tower, hair dryer, everything even medicine! I must stay here again if I come in a group.
The apartment is right smacked in the middle of the Shilin night market! Even so, the noise is barely audible once the windows are shut. I see that as the beauty of the night market.
Sophia and her husband welcomed us upon arrival and gave us a little tour around the apartment. They even brought us a baby bathtub on the 2nd day knowing that we have a toddler in hand. How very thoughtful! :)
The apartment is clean and spacious enough for 4 adults and 2 kids running around. There is only 1 bathroom, so be prepared to take turns when getting ready.
Amenities wise, there are WIFI and cable TV to keep everyone, especially the kids, occupied. If you are travelling with elderly and kids, I will definitely recommend this to you.
One more thing, Sophia is very responsive and well versed in English. Everything was communicated via Airbnb. So for those of you who have difficulty in Mandarin, this would be a big plus point.
Till then, take care to Sophia and your family!
