Homelike place
Great self-space bunk bed with the curtains, lamps and fast Wifi. Every guest is requested to change into slippers like Japanese, which renders everywhere clean and tidy. The bathroom and toilet are also a plus to enjoy. Overall, the hostel is 100% worth how much you are spending.

Cosy place, great location, good service
Amazing location. There are 11 or 12 exits from Formosa Boulevard station and one of it is exactly in front of the hostel. If you have anyone in the group with difficulty to climb up or down the stairs, there is another entrance/exit from the station just 100m away with escalator and elevator. Liuhe night market is just another 100m away in the opposite direction. Love it! Room is pretty spacious for 4 person. Always remember to turn on the exhaust fan, else your room will smell damp. The only hassle is that we have to change into house slippers at the lobby. They serve free bread and drinks for breakfast in a cosy little kitchen space. Best thing we received are the vouchers for supper in the corner shop near the hostel. You can use it to eat in or takeaway.

Great Hostel
The location is just right beside one of the exit of the MRT station (Exit 9). Very convenient to travel around Kaohsiung!

Nice staff and comfortable stay
Very convenient location just next to Formosa Boulevard station Exit 9, staffs are very friendly and helpful, the room I stayed was very clean and comfortable. The only thing small complaint was the shower gel was not been refilled in the morning when I took shower before checked out. Overall, I am very happy with the stay and definitely will recomand to my friends.
