“Incredible hospitality”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

Only spent one night there, but impressed with the hospitality. I told Sam my expected arrival time. I forgot to print out my map, and at KaoHsiung airport, the visitor's information counter knew that place and advised me the correct metro station to alight. Just when I was staring at the vicinity map around the metro station to figure out how to get there, Sam called me and gave me directions. What a godsend and I was most touched.

The hostel itself is nice, clean and spacious. The location was safe and wheels friendly. I travelled with luggage, no problem wheeling my luggage all the way to the metro station. (disclaimer: few steps between lift & ground lobby).
Would stay there again.

Sam and Mark speak English and are very helpful. The place seems newly redone and it so clean and organized. There is a shared kitchen on the floor where I stayed and since it was off-season and quiet, I was upgraded from a dorm to a double room which I had to myself. The lounge area was comfortable with a tv and computer (free wifi) though I didn't use them. It seemed very secure and was pretty easy to get to from the train station (take subway to Central Park station and walk about 5 minutes). The neighborhood has some cute shops nearby and just a few blocks from Love River which is a nice walk or bike ride.

Finding a hotel that meets your needs without spending a lot of money is difficult in Taiwan, even if you speak fluent Chinese. It's not that there aren't nice hotels out there, just finding them is difficult. My wife and I stayed in a private room here.

Pros:
Great location, close to shopping and a metro station
Private rooms or bunks if you're a single traveler
Cheap
SOFT BEDS! Often hard to come by in Taiwan
No smell of smoke
Clean
Kitchen to cook food if you would like
Helpful staff
Cold A/C in room

Cons:
Shared bathroom
No A/C in common room, just fan
