During 4 nights, I only saw a staff person the night I arrived, and she was excellent. There was never anyone around the rest of the time. The location is good because it's so close to the MRT, but as others have mentioned, it's right next to the MRT. That wasn't much problem for me, because my room (big and super clean) was in the basement with only a tiny window into the hallway. The only "oceanview" was on the 2nd floor where other guests were cooking. Nice area to stay in; better w/ a view.

I only got to know that I had to be transferred to their another so called second hostel but turn up to be a homestay when i got there. The owner staying in that house plus other people whom occupying different rooms. I feel so insecure. People walking in and out. Although the staff seem to be nice but it is so unacceptable. They should courtesy email me if there are any changes. I even drop email to them before I came. Please improve.


If you love Hello Kitty, this hostel might be just for you. The hostel front has a unique collection of all things Hello Kitty. The hostel is located 2 minutes away from Tamsui MRT station. Fisherman's wharf is ferry ride away and is worth a visit during sunset for a romantic and relaxing stroll. Bali is also a ferry ride away a; probably a newer touristy area with a boardwalk. Tamsui night market is also worth a visit. All of this makes this place a fun place to stay.
