Nice little hostel. Although the walls are really thin and not too sound proof.

Excellent location! Extremely close to a MRT station and within walking distance to many attractions. The owner of the hostel was also really sweet and helped me out quite a bit :) (although I'm not sure you'll have as much luck if you don't speak Chinese). The hostel was not the cleanliest but you definitely get the value for your money!


Good hostel, staffs r very nice, facilities are clean. The only thing is that the bathroom is a little tigh


A very good hostel with good atmosphere. 3 minutes walk from MRT station. Noted that there are five floors but no elevator. Free tea and coffee are available.

Wifi always lag and there is cockroach inside the room. == no dustbin inside the room and also no mirror inside the room. Inconvenience.


tidy room, staff are polite and helpful, locker provided, recommended!!


It is one of the greatest hostels in the world. Nice and kind staffs.


I stayed here only for one night as a stopover in Kaohsiung before heading out to the outer islands. Everyone was very friendly to me and I really like the location of this place, literally less than 5 minutes walk to the MRT station. The place is very stuffy though, especially in the restroom. It is probably the summer weather but better air conditioning would have made the stay more pleasant. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this place!


Aircon in every room, bathrooms were clean but may need to wait in line, location is great, 5min from MTR exit, area seems safe. Staff was nice and there was a kitchen you can use!


The place was clean and the staffs were very nice




All in all very good. Nice kitchen and common area, nicely decorated and very clean. Lockers outside of dorm which is good, less noisy. Helpful staff, close to metro.


I feel quite comfortable here, and it locate at a great place! The aura is also nice. Besides, all the facilities are very clean:)) . However, too many mosquitoes at night !! In rough, it's a nice place:)


Great quiet and cozy hostel. Conveniently located on a MRT line and easy to find. Very clean with hot showers. The staff were friendly and helped look up ferry times for us. Lockers were provided. Highly recommend.
