“A good hostel for youngers and travel lovers”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

It is unexpected that the hostel keeper show me lots of infomation about kaohsiung :)He is so nice and helpful!

Also the rooms are clean and all facilities are provided even including simple breakfast and tea bags !!!

I spent 10 minutes on walking to metro station from the hostel.

I love this hostel as well and I will live in here when I travel to kaohsiung next time :)

このゲストハウスは出来たばかりですが、宿泊をおすすめする理由をいくつかあげてみます。
(1)交通アクセス
 高雄駅や三多商圏など街中からそれほど距離もなく、観光するにも移動が楽です。また近くに地下鉄の駅もあり、電車、新幹線、バス、飛行機のどれで来ても地下鉄がつながっていてアクセス良好です。
(2)清潔さ
 オーナーが毎日掃除を徹底しているので、床はゴミもなく非常に清潔です。
(3)環境
 ゲストハウスがある鹽埕區は街中から離れていませんが、交通量も少なく静かな所です。また近所の人ともよく交流していて、果物をもらったり何かお話が出来るかもしれません。もちろん、オーナーの人柄が非常にすばらしいのは言うまでもありません。

高雄は台北などと比べると日本人観光客は少なめですが、個人的にはより台湾らしさを堪能できるのは台南や高雄など台湾南部だと思います。もし高雄観光に来て、ゲストハウスに興味あるようでしたら、迷わずこちらをお勧めします。

This is quite brand-new guest house, however, there are some reasons to recommend:
(1) Access
Not far away from city centre, like Kaohsiung station or Sanduo Shopping Area; easy to get around. And the metro station is near by, which connects the terminals of railway station, high speed rail, bus and airport.
(2) Cleanness
As the owner cleans the room every day, you may find no dusts at all on the floor.
(3) Environment
This guest house is located in Yancheng District, which is close to the city centre, but very calm with light traffic. And the owner often associates with neighbourhoods, so you may get fruits or talk with them. Oh don't forget to tell you that the owner is really nice!

If you want to experience the culture of real Taiwan, the southern Taiwan, including Tainan, Kaohsiung, etc. is the best place. If you visit Kaohsiung and are interested in guest houses, I'll highly recommend this guest house.
