The hostel location was a little too tactical and hidden. We got lost few times trying to find the location initially as locals there perpetually pinpoint the wrong location to us. The choice of postcards available for purchase was too limited with little design. Overall, it was still a good hostel with good and cheap food nearby, ideal for backpackers. :)

As it was a last-minute trip, I didn't expect to find a good place to stay, much less any vacancy. Harbourviews Hostel was a gem, given its location (conveniently) located near the Sanduo Shopping District MRT station, and neighbors with the 2nd tallest building in Taiwan. Rooms are cleaned daily. Also worth noting would be the roof deck for chilling. My stay was well-enjoyed thanks to the great service provided by the staff, particularly Jennifer. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Great hostel. I was surprised I was able to find such a decent place at a very reasonable price over the CNY period at last minute. The location is convenient and very easy to find. Has a nice big common room area. The staff are helpful in pointing out the decent places to go around town. All in all a good few days. :)

Have fun trying to miss the place with the biggest way point in the city right next door ! Its quite custom built inside with huge bathrooms, plenty of the showers etc but still feels like a hostel rather than some hotel which is cool. Atmosphere only lacking because it was waaaay off season

Very nice hostel directly next to the Kaohsiung 85 and a cinema (movies for 200 NTD). Beds are okay, the roof terrace is very nice. Distance to next KRT station: 8min Also great atmosphere in the common rooms includig a small kitchen and computers. Would definately recommend.

Overall a good stay. The only problem is that we were on the second floor and the room closest to the common area. At night, it got pretty noisy as some boys were outside using the internet and the were talking and laughing really loudly even at 2am! Other than that, it was faultless.

Very nice place. The entire street is lined up with inns that face the beach (there is however a road inbetween). There is a construction of another hotel right next door from Harbour Views (December 2014) which was a little bit unpleasant thanks to the noise.

Great place. Mi Casita food was wonderful. Beds were REALLY hard though....Bikes also need to be maintain better.

Great views from the top floor and fast internet. The staff are very helpful and the breakfast, although continental, is great.

Stayed for a few days while on a "spontaneous" trip from Taipei. Nice and clean, modern, felt quite safe and secure, good Internet, electrical outlets everywhere. Interesting open rooftop area. Kitchen was nice but didn't try cooking. Staff are good but sometimes a little difficult to find.

Very nice hostel, staff are really friendly. Great restaurant on the bottom level. I was there during a slow tourist season so there were not a lot of people to hang out with.

Very good location, close to subway. The staff speaks good English and they are always ready to help, but they do not really hang with you in the common area. A lot of showers and bathrooms, so facilities are good and also clean.

This hostel was amazing, clean, shower has free soap. Rooftop patios, huge common area, free breakfast. The only thing that could be upgraded in the mattress on the bed. I'm used to hard beds but not everyone. Seemed really hard but I got a good sleep. They have bikes for rent, close to night market (2 blocks away) The staff were super nice like pretty much everywhere in Taiwan.
