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

Pros- location was excellent , it was very near the train station and a fashion street called new jue jiang. Rooms were clean and comfortable.. Cons- The environment was very noisy! There was so much chattering, loud laughter and loud tv playing just outside our door; the thin walls didn't help much.. The noise begins at 830am and ends at... More

After 3 nights in Taipei, with my money running out, I was panicking about my final 2 days in Kaohsiung. After getting of the High Speed train from Taipei, I called Cozy Planet and spoke to Sam (I think that's his name). Sam was really helpful and gave me directions from the station. His English is perfect. I arrived at... More

Regular travelers in Taiwan would probably agree with me in saying, Taipei and Hualien aside, that Taiwan, although having numerous plus points, lacks in infrastructure for budget orientated, non-Chinese speaking backpackers. So what a pleasant surprise to come across this wonderfully well-run, cheap oasis in the centre of Kaohsiung. Beginning with the organising before our arrival, to the directions, the... More

Only spent one night there, but impressed with the hospitality. I told Sam my expected arrival time. I forgot to print out my map, and at KaoHsiung airport, the visitor's information counter knew that place and advised me the correct metro station to alight. Just when I was staring at the vicinity map around the metro station to figure out... More

Sam and Mark speak English and are very helpful. The place seems newly redone and it so clean and organized. There is a shared kitchen on the floor where I stayed and since it was off-season and quiet, I was upgraded from a dorm to a double room which I had to myself. The lounge area was comfortable with a... More

Finding a hotel that meets your needs without spending a lot of money is difficult in Taiwan, even if you speak fluent Chinese. It's not that there aren't nice hotels out there, just finding them is difficult. My wife and I stayed in a private room here. Pros: Great location, close to shopping and a metro station Private rooms or... More
