    Absolutely fantastic experience. I have never visited a youth hostel that provides free breakfast, coffee and even a cup of cocktail, while the price they charged is still very reasonable. The room is not cramped and their public space is very nice too.

    It's a true superb hostel, staff were super helpful, rooms and showers are clean, very nice common area with tables sofas and power outlets, rooftop, balcony, a coffee machine in the morning - Paradise! Every bed has a small reading lamp. And don't worry about the mattresses they are a bit harder than the regular, feels like Japanese style mattress - it's good for your back!

    This is a great, clean hostel with very helpful staff! Good relaxed vibe in the common area to meet other travellers. Only downside is the beds are SO hard!

    Good clean hostel in the centre of the city. Breakfast was basic and staff were friendly. Sadly one foreign volunteer at the hostel made the local staff's job very difficult by refusing to do his job, creating an uncomfortable stand off. Separate staff/volunteer accommodation would have sorted this problem. I would recommend this place however.

    It was cozy and comfortable. It's been while that I had breakfast at hostel. Location was the most excellent. Against the accommodation, there is a department store. Also, the metro was close.

    Location is great, but the beds are rock solid. Very difficult to get a good night’s sleep. Security lockers are located outside of the dorms by reception, which is very inconvenient. They only provide small cabinets in the dorms. No privacy curtains. Smells a little funky but seemed clean overall.

    Common area is nice for meeting other travelers. Staff is nice and will give you some tips for continuing your trip in Taiwan! Beds are a bit hard and breakfast is not awesome compared with other places...but in general it's a nice place for a short stay in Kaohsiung :)
