I had a great stay at Rooftop. The cake was amazing. The location is very good and it was nice to stay in a dorm room with single beds. The garden shower on the rooftop was nice. Wifi was working in the lodge downstairs and most of the time in the room (but not always). The owners are nice and considerate. Bike rental for 10 MYR a day.
Wifi in room worked well. Stayed on the 4-bed female dorm which was very nice. Comfy beds, huge lockers, reading light and power outlet next to your bed. Not a party hostel (when I stayed there), which I really appreciated. As mentioned before, you cannot control the temperature of the A/C. It was a tick too cold. Location is excellent, bus terminals and train station easy to reach by public transport.
Good value for money. The rooms are small, but they have lockers and great Wifi connection. The staff's English was a little limited, but I managed to get all my questions answered. They have free bikes you can rent. Hot showers available from late afternoons into the night. A little dirty in the bathrooms in the evening (lots of hair), but still OK. Laundry facilities available for 50 NT$ (bring your own washing powder). Bus stop of the bus to/from Kaohsiung is very close by. Great Location.
Great and helpful staff, female dorm was nice, facing away from the street so it's quiet. Shampoo and shower gel provided free inside the showers. WLAN was working well in the lobby and communal areas, not so well in the room. They have 2 bikes which you can take for free. Lockers are in the kitchen. They also have a pond with fish and crab. Beware of the crab, it does not always like to stay in the pond ;-)
Coffee Shack is paradise. Great food, awesome location, nice day trips. The shared bathrooms were clean, spacious and nicely decorated. I stayed in the Rond dorm, which was spacious enough. It's close to the bar so it can get a bit noisy. The Hall in the Wall Hike was great. The area around Coffee Bay feels a bit like The Shire from Lord of the Rings, just at the ocean.
Loved the place! Great food, awesome views, spacious dorm (Blue dorm) with two different rooms + veranda. Cintsa is a quiet place, great if you want to get away for a view days. But you can also have a great time at the bar at Bucks.
The staff was nice and helpful, the room was clean, the design of the Hotel is colorful and modern. The breakfast was free for us and the selection was ok. There's a bus going to the Opera and the Eiffel Tower almost in front of the Hostel (line 42), which was very convenient. Additionally, the metro and Garde du Nord are really close. Although the area around the Gare du Norde didn't seem so secure and nice like other parts of Paris.
