I stayed at Darwin's and found the rooms to be comfy and eminently affordable! The staff were attentive to my every need, and by far and away, the place to stay if you are looking for a great price, clean rooms, and staff that really know where the best places to go are in Tainan!

This is a new hostel and therefore it still has a few problems that I'm sure the owner and staff will eventually fix. The location is good, close enough to the train station to walk there and hidden away in a lovely little Tainan lane. Our room was nice and rather big, and our friend's room had a very Japanese style with tatamis and a futon to sleep on.

There were however a few things we didn't like so much. First off, the --admittedly very friendly -- staff is not always present, so unless you have a Taiwanese phone, you may not be able to contact them which can be rather inconvenient. For example one girl looked herself out of her room in the middle of the night and had to borrow our phone so somebody would drop by to let her back in. Also not every floor has a bathroom, and the one on our floor always seemed to be wet (I think the tub leaked). What I really found a bit disturbing though, was a pervasive smell of poo that seemed to enter the room from the street whenever it rained a lot, which it tends to do in July.

Anyway, for the extremely low price (300 TWD night/person) the place is more than adequate, and I'm sure it will only get better.
