I would say more than anything .. the people that run this are great. I'd gone to another hostel at the first in the lonely planet that had closed down and i was pretty happy they had a space here. It's clean and basic. The bed was comfy and the wifi was great.

The moment we entered the door on the 6th floor, my friends and I were shocked at how beautiful and comfortable this hostel was. It was so comfy in fact that we seriously considered changing our entire itinerary just so we can spend more time in Kaohshiung and in our hostel area. Sam, the owner, is one of the friendliest...

Once we got there, at the 8th floor, we found a closed door. We called the numbers and rang the bell four times as we heard some noise from the inside. The guy on the phone just told us to piss off, and didn't want to talk to us, as we had no room yet! We found the hotel on... More

It was the second time I visited Kaohsiung, and I chose this hostel again for its perfect location (just in the city center and less than 10 minutes walk from metro station) and cozy atmosphere. Owner Sam was super friendly, he introduced the rooftop area with stunning view of the whole downtown to us. We love it! A budget choice... More

This place exceeded our expectations. Sam (the owner slash receptionist) was the most friendly local we met in kaohsiung. He helped us booked High Speed Train tickets to Taipei and he even helped us get a Shuttle to roam around the city. We got two dorm rooms and it felt like we rented a private house for ourselves. I hope... More

This hostal is located near Kaohsieung Central Park and its station. When I asked massage and souvenir shop, a young guy (owner?) told me a nice place. Most of the staff can speak English and little bit Japanese. Room is clean and laundry service is free. I will be back here when I visit Kaohsiung alone.

Wonderful, just wonderful. Our experience as a family that booked an entire apartment (roughly 8-10 separate beds) was amazing, mainly because of the impeccable customer service rendered by one of the hostel owners, Lulu. She was very patient with our late check-in (past 9pm) and even after receiving us and introducing the apartment, she very willingly briefed us about the... More

This hostel is just a 10-minute walk from the Central Park metro station. Not very centrally located but its proximity to the metro station makes it convenient enough to go to most of the attractions in town. It occupies two storeys, one on the 6/F and another on 8/F. I stayed on the 6/F and it was super super clean.... More

This is my second time staying here and my reason to come back is good location (7min walk from MRT Central Park Station), reasonable room rates but more importantly, comfy room, clean bathroom and very friendly and helpful staff! Last time I stayed in a 2-bed mixed dorm for 2 nights (in 2011), I was really impressed by the room's... More

The location is great and the hostel's accurate directions even better! The hostel is cosy (as the name suggests) as the main area is like you've just entered the owner's living room. Loads of brand new guide books, maps and brochures to reference and computers to use. The fact that they offer free laundry is a real bonus and hassle... More
