If you are more into large hostels and busy hostels, this might not be for you. But if you enjoy a homely place, more a home stay than hostel, this is where you go. And you will enjoy the cosy place, that is run by the wonderful host Sally, who is full of knowledge about Kaohsiung and Taiwan in general.... More

This gem is very well located next to the 85 tower just a 2 minute walk away fro the MTR. Beds are comfortable and facilities clean. The best thing about this place is definitely the host. Sally gives you all the advices you need. It is rather a home stay than a stay in a hostel. Highly recommend to go... More

This is definitely my first opt to stay if I visit Kaohsiung again. The price is the cheapest in Kaohsiung city yet providing quality services even the locals agree with this statement. Well Sally (landlady) is very friendly, she wouldn't hesitate to guide us and share with us her opinion on where to visit and what to eat. She's a... More

Feel so glad to have visited and lived in Petit Summer House when travelling in Kaohsiung:) Love the design and setting of the house. It's simple and warm. Bed is comfortable. Sitting in common room chatting with Sally and friends, enjoying the music, or sitting on the balcony looking at the view is really nice and relaxing, especially after the... More

Sally is an amazing lady who welcomes you into her home and makes you feel part of the family. I only stayed 2 nights, but felt so comfortable here. Sally even shared food with me and introduced me to her gorgeous daughter Summer. The location is fabulous, and it's easy to get around. Good local facilities too. If the guy... More

I am so lucky to find the guest house, it is located in a great location, very close to a subway station. super friendly host, such a friendly place,, cannot praise it enough! I would definitely recommend staying here when come to Kaushiung Taiwan 在台灣只要是假日, 旅行經常一房難求. 很幸運找到小夏日寓, 有非常方便而且乾淨的房間, 絕佳的地點, 距離地鐵站不到五分鐘. 非常方便. 特別是非常友善的主人-sally, 我找不到有任何理由會不再拜訪小夏日寓. 當你再來高雄的時候.

I had an amazing stay at Little Summer Hostel. Very comfortable and clean. Great atmosphere, a nice welcoming environment. Sally, the owner was more than accommodating. She went over and above helping travelers with activity suggestions, and with directions on how to get to Kaohsiung's many attractions. The hostel is very conveniently situated, 5 minutes walk to a metro stop... More
