Located near the train station but a bit away from most of the sightseeing spots in the city. They don't keep your luggage overnight after you check out. I hope this information helps on your planning. Have a nice trip.

this hostel has very friendly staffs. It is very clean and comfortable. Also, there's a Spaghetti restaurant a few houses away, and it tastes amazing!


Located in seemingly the hippest part of the city, City Hut 1828 rises above in atmosphere and location. However, even better still, the staff makes the extra effort to welcome you. They cooked a home made dinner and invited me to join them, and offered me drinks to share. The facilities are top notch as well, I had a private three bed room to myself for a few days for the lowest rate. If you are in Tainan, definitely check in.


Great location, Friendly staff, Stylish place. This is a clear example of how good hostel is supposed to do.


Trendy, cozy, spacious place with the best shower I've ever experienced in a hostel. Good service, excellent location and nice courtyard and kitchen to boot. Just wonderful.


The hostel is within the Chengkong University grounds so it definitely has a "youthful" atmosphere around. The transportation system around Tainan isn't as extensive as the ones in Taipei and Kaohsiung hence it might be difficult to go around the place (though the hostel offers bike rentals). The staff are very friendly and the bathrooms and toilets are very clean.


very clean hostel. I booked a 3 bed dorm and ended up getting the room all to myself because no one else booked. hostel is very nice, just a little out of the way from the center and the staff was nice enough, just that warm. would recommend this hostel, especially if you're looking for a clean place.


This was the best hostel I have ever seen. The staff was super-nice, the place was immaculate, and the location very convenient. Please note that the map that they send you is from the Main Train Station not the HSR so if you're going to Tainan take the slow train if you have time(4H from Taipei NT700) or you'll need to hop on the local train(30 or so minutes, NT25). Enjoy!


Awesome location and facilities!
