“Awesome hostel to stay”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

I stayed for a night in April when I was traveling in Kaohsiung. I chose this hostel because of the great reviews from TripAdvisor. The hostel is very conveniently located near to Kaohsiung train station. The staff there are all very friendly and offer you helpful tips and information. The room is very clean, tidy and neat. To my surprise the bed is actually quite comfy and they offer you a locker room for you to store all your belongings which is convenient and secure. You got access to computers and WIFI, so it is handy.

I definitely would recommend this hostel if you are looking for a great bargain while you stay in Kaohsiung.

My friend and I came to Gaoxiong for a weekend, and found this hostel through TripAdvisor (where it is currently ranked #1 in alternative lodging). The main reason we chose this place was for how close it was to the Gaoxiong railroad and MRT station. It's literally a 2 minute walk away. At first, it was a bit hard to find, since it's tucked behind the main street. But if you can find the police on Changming Rd, the hostel is just a little bit behind it on the road.

The hostel is very new, so all of the facilities are very nice, and seem to be kept in good order. There is free wifi and computers to use, the beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms are convenient. So, it's pretty much all I could hope for in a hostel. We also got to meet most of the staff that work here, and they were all extremely friendly and helpful, often going out of their way to help us.

Overall, the hostel was a great place to stay in a very convenient location with friendly and helpful staff at a very reasonable price. We highly recommend Anchoredoff.

Room Tip: There are only 8 person rooms, despite what Hostel World suggested. The room is basically decided on...

I cycled to round the island in Jan. I found this lovely hostel on backpacker.com one night before arriving KS. This is the best hostel I had ever stayed in TW. Sincerely recommend.

- Super convenient location: just next to the KS railway station; closed to night market and subway station
- Helpful and friendly staff: The staff took me to the laundry and gave me very good advice to look around the city.
- Clean and tidy bedroom and bathroom
- Stylish decoration and design
- Bed with 5-star hotel quality: The most comfortable and sweetest sleeping experience in TW lol

Everything you see on their website photos is real: clean rooms, absolutely comfortable bedding, nice lounge with sofa and TV, free internet for you to explore the city and get contact with friends, friendly and hopeful staff. The location is very convenient, right next to the Kaohsiung railway/subway/bus station, and from there it is also very easy to get around the city or elsewhere. You can definitely feel the warmth of the owners and their staff making their best to let the guests feel happy and comfortable during their stay. I had a wonderful time staying with them; high recommended and will definitely come back for sure. And thank you guys from Anchoredoff for making my trip special.

Room Tip: They only provided 8-people female and mixed dorm rooms. Breakfast not included but very easy to get...
