Convenient location near the 'Arena' KMRT station. almost have everything available within reach. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Nice decent single private room for me which i stayed in for 2 nights. A small shortcoming would be that it was relatively noisy late at night due to the other occupants running or walking up & down the stairs during my 1st night stay, other than that, it's great for a hostel stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Here at Bike Hostel, we advocate that travelers from around the world come ride a bicycle to get to know this beautiful island. So far, we have two hostels located in Kaohsiung(the 2nd big city) and Tainan (the 3rd big city). Our goal is to provide an environment where travelers can share their experiences of life and travelling. 「Happiness is only real when shared」, said Christopher McCandless in the book Into the Wild. Our hostel provides new and clean facilities, including a fully equipped kitchen, so that travelers can buy food from the nearby traditional market and supermarket to cook for themselves. We are only a 5-minute walk from RueiFong night market so there is no need to cook if you want some late night Taiwanese snacks. In the common room, we have a cozy area for travelers to share their travelling experiences and broaden their horizons as well.Our aspiration is to encourage young people to go backpacking for a memorable journey that is more than just sightseeing; but also interacting and building relationships with local people. Here we've already done 「hitch-hiking」, 「couch-surfing」, 「cycling around the island」 etc., which may not be the most comfortable ways to travel, but make for unforgettable life experiences. 「Just Do It」 is not only a slogan of NIKE, but also our hostel's attitude! Let's start traveling!! ... more less
