I had a great stay at City Hut 1828. The staff was helpful beyond words. They really went out of their way to provide information about Guanziling (hot to get there and which hot spring resort was best). I will definitely stay there again if I have a chance.
Good facility with friendly staff

Nice location, comfortable and casual. There are many restaurants nearby, you have many choice for your meals. The hostel is clean, cozy and the garden is nice for relaxing.
It is near the main railway station and with their clear instruction you could easily reach them. What else can I say？Very very thoughtful details. It beats very hostel I have lived in 40 cities around Europe!!! And Tainan is definitely the cultural heart in Taiwan. I really enjoyed my stay there with 1828!
Everything is great, except the staff wasn't really enthusiastic. I was asking something about the bus, the staff replied me with several "I don't know about that", and then kept playing his computer. I mean, there are only 2 major bus lines in Tainan, how difficult would it be to know all the information about it for a staff?
Very nice hostel. Good place to meet people. Very friendly and careful staff. And the best facilities I ve seen so far.
The location of the hostel is excellent. it is nearby bus and train stations. The area is also pretty nice because it is quiet, but busy at the same time. There are many places to eat and shop. The hostel is super clean, compared to others I have seen. Very nicely organized and decorated as well. As for the staff, they weren't so friendly unfortunately.
Great value for money, this hostel is clean, newly renovated, and has a really nice atmosphere! The staff were really friendly and helpful, despite me arriving tired and grumpy. Accommodating for bicycles, communal kitchen and garden nice for relaxing. comfy bed, clean linen, nice bathrooms. I stayed an extra night because it was very relaxing. It is a little bit far from the centre of town on foot, but there are loads of nice student restaurants locally. Depends what you want to do.
Very nice hostel. Pity that non-tenant can't get in the place. My friend can't even take a seat in the common area on the first floor.
It's an amazing hostel, everything is better than my expectation, almost perfect. Besides, it locates at the east side of railway station, where has many small but interesting temples. For me, they are even more interesting than Chikan Building and Kaiping Ancient Fort. For example, just next door of 1828, it is a Baha'i center. You can visit it if there is someone there.
I was really pleasantly surprised by this hostel! It was very comfortable, and the staff very helpful! It was a little bit far from the station ("far" meaning 15 minutes walk, which was still relatively close. In addition, this was the main station, so you could get to anywhere from there). Once you're at the hostel, there are many cute restaurants nearby. I wish I could have stayed longer and gotten to know Tainan! I will probably return some day. Thanks so much!
They where very nice and helpful. Such a clean place.
The place was really clean, seemed very secure to me, had air-con in the rooms and you could regulate the temperature, was near the train station and had a nice inner garden to relax and socialize. Its location might be a bit far from most shrines, temples, gardens and other touristic places, but Tainan is not such a big city and it's quite walkable. The staff is really nice and ready to help backpackers to organize their visit. Excellent value for money. I do really recommend this place.
This is a hotel disguised as a hostel. The facilities are incredible, the bathrooms are by far the best equipped and nicest of any that I had previously found in a hostel. Likewise, the kitchen is huge and beautiful, and there is also a reading room and plenty of other room for relaxation, which is unusual in a hostel. If hostels were awarded a star rating this would definitely be a five star hostel. The only problem is the location, which is charming, but far from most of the major sights.
i recommend to stay there the second night in Tainan, as the first night you might want to explore the west side of the train station, and then change to another side. they have different places to go. the hostel is very nice, quiet and friendly. clean.
Cool, modern interior design, nice big kitchen, AMAZING bathrooms and clean, comfortable rooms with all day A/C. Very nice, helpful, knowledgable staff who are happy to assist you with everything incl. finding you accommodation for your onward journey! Great additional facilities- bicycle rental, washing machine with dryer etc. Good location- behind the train station but only a short walk away, with lots of cheap and good food around (university area). In all, really good value for money!
Cozy, sweet, clean, and quiet. Friendly staff.
