Easy booking through phone call. Location is about 15-20 minutes walk from the strategic Central Park station (near to night market and shopping places etc). Just walk along the Gwang-Fu 3rd Street and look for the blue '202' signboard. I stayed there twice and tried 2 types of room. Room for two (Twin/double) is cheaper at the old building, but... More

It is very hard to get a hold of someone here, but once I was able to communicate it was smooth, bed was large enough and clean. The four bed dorms are spacious and not cramped. Its too dark and it is an old buiding, but I stayed three nights because the location is good to walk to alot of... More

My friends and I rented one of the studio apartments for two nights. It was just a few blocks away from the hostel, and was situated near a stretch of the Lover River. It was a really good deal because there were three of us and the apartment was really quite spacious and cozy. My only gripe was that the... More

Kaohsiung 202 is owned and often run by Martin, an Aussie who will do anything for you. He has fantastic knowledge of the area and an absolute love of Taiwanese culture. Most nights I stayed here we sat up drinking with Martin and his friends, discussing their experiences and enjoying the fantastic Taiwan beer. He took us out clubbing and... More

This place was utterly disappointing. Very unlike what was described on their website. The rooms were small, dark and the walls were peeling. The aircon was not working properly and the toilet was disgustingly dirty and the flush was not working. The door to the toilet was stuck/jammed and it took at least 10 minutes to whank it out. The... More
