Fabulous 8,6 From 253 reviews

Very good 8,0
The rooms are quite small, so there’s not a lot of space left after all the luggage’s been “stored”. The beds, however, are decent sized with power outlets and small fans for each bed. All in all, nice enough for a day or two, which was exactly what I needed for my trip! The staff was super helpful!

Worth your money
Everyone was friendly and the place is perfect for solo traveller like me. Just 1 minor incident when I was stuck inside the elevator and have to use to intercom to call for help. I hate elevators that suddenly stops working. Overall, I will come back and stay in this hotel again.

Great stay in Kaohsiung! Would return
I was only here for 1 night but it was lovely! About a 2 minute walk from the metro and in an area with a lot of shipping and food! There is a night market as well, but the good night market is just a metro ride away. The hostel was big, the beds were spacious, comfortable and private, and the top bunks had stairs to them instead of a ladder which was awesome. Wifi was great and the bathrooms were clean. There seemed to be karaoke nightly in the basement, but I didn't have a chance to go. I had a great but short stay here, and I'd definitely stay here again if I ever return to Kaohsiung!
