“Taiwan needs more hostel like Chez Kiki!!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Kaohsiung is a hot, tropical city, and I think that's one of the reason why people in Kaohsiung are so passionate and friendly. there's a very special vibe in this city (although I am from Singapore, also a hot city, but it lacks the relaxing feeling Kaohsiung has). Chez Kiki hostel brings the level of friendliness to a whole different level. the lovely small but comfortable house is managed by two lovely local couple (and kiki, the house dog, which is why they name the hostel Chez kiki). I stayed for 5 nights had met many interesting travelers from everywhere. the hostel is not only clean, but impeccably organized. they made the bathroom and shower area so clean and neat, I want to remodel my house bathroom just like they did. I was given a local map made by them and I got to try all sorts of delicious local food, and they are SO MUCH better than my guide book suggests! on the weekend they invited me to a local event called "chill chill Kaohsiung" and it was so much fun! I would recommend this hostel to anyone deciding to going to Kaohsiung or on the way to Kenting beach. stay nowhere but here!

Chez Kiki is the best hostel in Kaohsiung! Everything is neat and clean. Bed and bean bags are comfortable. Common area and especially the rooftop terrace are great. Nato and Trista are very friendly and caring telling me things about Kaohsiung and suggesting tasty local food. they've thought of every detail to make travelers feel comfortable and welcome.
Everything's perfect! and Kiki is cute
love this warm hostel~

The place is really cool!! Everything is neat, clean, and well-organized. The person who set the the social room has a really good taste. You can find Taiwanese literature and music CDs on the shelves, which surely helps you get a much profound impression on Taiwan! Nato, the owner, and the other young lady are both friendly and responsible lol. I will surely recommend Chez Kiki to my friend!! XDDD

I found Chez Kiki through Tripadvisor and stayed there for 7 nights. I was very impressed with the whole place and with the owners Nato and Trista.
Nato and Tristra were both excellent hosts, spoke perfect English and couldn't do enough for the guests. They were able to help with suggestions for itinerates as well as trips in and around the city. Nato has his own hand drawn map of the neighbourhood with all the useful local amenities on it. They definitely put the effort into making guests feel welcome and at home.
The hostel itself is in a great location, easy walking distance to both the MRT and shopping areas. It has a very calm and peaceful vibe to it, like an oasis in the city. Spotless rooms and great facilities for guests like DVD, tea and coffee facilities. Plenty of restaurants and bars nearby.
I will definitely stay here again the next time I visit Kaohsiung.
