The location was great! We had a great view over Shilin area and considering its location was fairly quiet. The room was really sweet and had a really great feeling!^^ The AC worked well and the bed was good. All in all, a great stay there!

This hostel is a stone's throw away from Shihlin Night Market. The staff are located in an office 300m away so you're pretty much on your own after you get the keys. Basic necessities like aircon and ensuite bathroom are present. But if you're looking for anything more than that, then I suggest you find some place else. This place is not lousy but it's not fantastic either.

*Our ensuite rooms are all independent unit in the building, no common area, no front desk or on-site staff however our friendly staff is always around to help. Please consider the condition before your booking.


Great location, not far away from Shilin Night Market.
