Location is very good especially for those who plan to eat and shop alot at the Shihlin Night Market which is just across the road or within 5mins walk.
If you have 3-4 people in a group then it may be better to opt for their airport pick-up service as the rate is pretty reasonable (check with hostel owner for details).
The room is good and clean for hostel class lodging. They have a fridge, LCD TV, cups, mirror, open cupboard, shoe cabinet, shower with bath tub, shower gel, shampoo etc. Basically nothing I can complain about except for the corridor of the building where the hostel room is located which has a weird smell. The room space may be a little tight if you are squeezing more than 2 people in a room (especially all gals with more than one luggage each).
Kevin (owner) is very nice. We are especially thankful when he helped my cousin retrieve her Blackberry which she had dropped when we alight from a cab and almost had problems getting it back from the cab driver. He also had no issues moving us to another hostel room when there are some issues with the bathroom in the first room.
