During my first backpacking trip in Taiwan Kaohsiung, happen to stumble upon this great hostel recommended by people in the forum. The location is easy to find, just a few minutes of walk from the metro station, nearby there is the shopping district. The room is exceptionally clean and cosy, great platform to know fellow backpackers and we even traveled... More

Close to main shopping district. The whole building itself is pretty clean. Easy going staff, very helpful. The facility is also amazing, large social area and living room, also a full function kitchen.

Take the red line and get off at san duo stop, exit 1. The hostel is literally round the corner from a metro stop, so easy to find. There is a big shopping complex near by, and a very famous, popular hot pot restaurant. It is safe, clean, with enough social space to hang out in. Free access to the... More

Tucked away in a lane just a few steps from Sanduo Shopping station in a really centric location with sightseens, transportation, shopping and food markets all around! It is clean, safe, nicely decorated and comfortable. Free wifi, no breakfast, towels included. Joanna manages the place splendidly, but the star there is her mom, a friendly woman, for whom english is... More

I loved this place! Spotlessly clean and modern but tastefully and artistically decorated with a true homely touch. Downstairs has a real apartment feel to it with a small kitchenette with free tea and coffee, a dining area, couch, tv and computers free for use. I stayed for 2 nights in the female dorm room. It was simple and clean... More

Stayed in the dorm here for 3 nights. Location wise, it is located in the city area of Kaohsiung, and is just a 3 minutes walk from the MRT, making it very convenient for tourists. The place is very clean and well kept, and looks almost brand new despite having operating for 2 years already. There is wifi provided, but... More
