    I worked at duckstay in Taipei for a month and the other staff recommended Kite. The staff here is really sweet and friendly. Also, the other people staying were welcoming and inviting. Would stay again!

    Good place located on the main street of the city. The atmosphere is good if you try to make it. But as I get in other hostels people play and having fun, in this hostel I was just sleeping, which is also nice. Some people were violently switching on the lights in 7(or 8) people room, but it's more cultural problem or so. They have free tea as I get, pretty nice Alishan tea. Then they have decorated the second floor so that if you're an instagram star you can make some good shots, hehe.

    Very nice and interesting place. But don't expect any atmosphere there especially if you are a solo traveler.

    The staff is very friendly and helpful. Even though one of them speaks a poor English, he does his absolute best to give whatever information is asked from him. The common area is part of a noodle restaurant / dried flowers shop so locals come to eat there and take selfies: the decoration is interesting and original. The biggest dorm is big and clean, quite typical of a Taiwanese low-cost setup: grey floor, paint which is not that fresh. Toilet / shower mixed together. But good for the price.

    Place was really clean and nicely decorated. Weren’t told that the hostel doubled as a café. Common area for the hostel upstairs was also used by café goers, which was fine but there was always hustle and bustle and it felt a bit awkward. The only bathroom upstairs we could use was also a restroom for the café so it was a strange setup, especially if you wanted to take a shower. Bathrooms downstairs were in the café area so felt awkward going down there. Place was fine but atmosphere was off.

    One of a lot of cheap hostels to stay in Chiayi! Although the location is a bit far from the train station, there are several tourism spots nearby the hostel. The hostel is comfortable and clean. I did not expect too much since it is a cheap one, but it is fine for me. The staff is very friendly! Thank you so much for helping me, Mick! The main disadvantage of this hostel is that you need to pay for some toiletries, for board game rent, etc. However, I like this hostel!

    Not enough toilets. It was a decent stay, very clean but it's just a weird hostel. Flowers drying out everywhere. People were nice. Rooms were cramped. Would stay again for the price (~$11US).
