Backpacker's Haven”

Finding the guest house was a little challenge and if you did not look carefully, you would have missed it. My advise for fellow travelers who are booking this guest house was to follow the street name and look for the guest house 'poster' on the wall. Alternatively if you spotted a 'chiwawa hostel 吉娃娃' signage, you are at the right building. Entering the lift to the 5th floor may make you wonder if you had make the correct choice but once you reach Ahiruyah Guest house, you can forget about those second thoughts... The guest house has a very inviting and homey environment (common area space) I would say. I had booked a double bed room and it was literally 'you get what you see'; no frills; a table, chair and double bed. For a hostel standard it is considered the average but most importantly, the room was clean. It would be good to have an extra set of pillows as the ones in the room were quite flat and therefore difficult to sleep on. This guest house in contrast with many of the hostel or guest house has a bright and open look and feel to it. Many of the hostel or guest house to would use dark colors giving them a dingy and claustrophobic vibe. The dorms were also quite bright and spacious (had the chance to peep when once of the occupants left the dorm room's door slightly ajar. The common space area shared by the guest were ten thumbs up... The vibe, cleanliness and inviting nature of the decoration and set up of the space I guess is the soul of this Ahiruyah guest house. When I stayed there (no doubt only for 1 night as I am in transit) I literally would have choose to sleep on the TV area instead of my room.... The cleanliness is also another ten thumbs up or maybe twenty if I can give. In comparison to many hostel of guest house or even some hotels which I stayed prior, the common toilet was simply maintained at a six star hotel standard which is very important in the aspect of female travelers. The facilities were on par as a normal guest house but th

best guest house I've been to”

Ahiruyah is a beautiful and quiet guest house in kaohsiung. Certainly the cleanest and most well hostel I've stayed at in my life. The staff were incredibly helpful with everything and the rooms were in immaculate condition. I wouldn't recommend this place for people who are looking for a party hostel. Highly recommended for those looking for a quiet stay. It is also right next to the raohe night market.

Provide all basic necessitates, close to metro, clean and tidy. The only problem is the toilet/bathroom facilities are not very convenient. It would be nice if some storage can be provided to keep clean clothes and towels away from water. I'll choose Ahiruyah Guest House again in my next visit.

Really love the interior of the guest house, simple and minimalist. From the moment I checked in until checkout time, I don't find any hassle on all the procedures. Also, the staff there were really friendly as well! Free shower gel and shampoo are provided in the washroom and surprisingly you will need to use another slipper when you use their shower room (talking about cleanliness). Also face and body towels were provided beside the counter at FOC. All and all, I will definitely stay here if I ever visit Kaohsiung in the future.

Great Stay! Comfortable, Spacious & Clean”

Certainly the cleanest and most well hostel I've stayed in Taiwan. Business run by Japanese; the facilities, living room, kitchen and bathroom was so spacious in Japanese-style with well & nice maintained. Cozy environment, clean and neat with many Japanese guests, and able to get to know new friends from other countries. This location is convenient with major subway (Formosa Boulevard MRT Station) and Liuhe Night Market within walking distance of each other. Everything is good but suggest to change coin-operated cloth dryer machine as it was not working / heating properly, and the staff should update to the guest before get paid coin-operated laundry (it took about an hour there just to dry my clothes) 私は今回このホテルに泊まる機会があったことを大変嬉しく思いますし、皆さんにもぜひここに滞在されることをおすすめします。 It's an excellent hostel for staying in Kaohsiung, I would definitely stay here again when in town next.

Nice BUT Pricey for a Hostel w/ No Breakfast”

Location, Comfort & Staff

Let me be clear by saying this is VERY NICE place to stay in a great location, but its also a little pricey (over US$20 just for a bunk in a room with 5 others) for a hostel in a secondary city with NO breakfast included. To begin with, its a very short walk from the Formosa Boulevard Station (with the Dome of Light while the main train station is the next stop) to the guest house with the Liuho Night Market a few minutes walk in the other direction on the same road plus the Nanhua Tourist Night Market is just beyond the station. Everything in the place is new, I don't recall plugs being an issue (I have US/Malaysia plugs), there is a comfortable couch seating area plus tables in the kitchen area where there is green tea, coffee and drinking water. The bunks sort of have blackout curtains around them along with plugs and a light plus a locker in the corner. Wifi was speedy enough in the common areas. The men's bathrooms have 3 showers and 3 stalls - which seemed to be enough when I was there as the place was not full. Again, its a very nice place to stay BUT if you are looking for a better value, you will need to look elsewhere.

Great atmosphere/ nice facilities/ perfect location close to the MRT/ fair price :) I’d definitely visit again whenever I go traveling in Kaohsiung. What’s more, there’s a 7-11 right down the building and it takes only 5 mins to walk to the famous night market Liuhe. Typical Japanese style deco makes you feel calm and the couch there is very comfortable:)

The location of the guesthouse is great and convenient, it is just about 5-7mins walk from Farmosa Boulevard MRT exit 4. And next to Liuhe night market. The environment in the guesthouse is super nice, it is like a home. Common areas and kitchen are spacious, cosy and well decorated, those pictures shown at the website is exactly what it is in the guesthouse. It provides everything I need like towel, shampoo and shower gel. Rooms are clean and neat. Worth the money, super well done! I will definitely back here to stay again when I visit Kaohsiung next time!

Run by Japanese with many Japanese guests...and so it was maintained like a new, spacious, great Japanese facility. The living room and kitchen and bathroom was so spacious and nice. Privacy curtains are a big plus, but can't do much about snoring roommates. Nicest hostel I have stayed at in Asia and great wifi, free shower towels, and nice bedding.

This is a very well managed hostel with stylish & comfortable common areas, well equipped kitchen and bathrooms (the hot showers were a bliss on the freezing nights when I visited), and spacious bedroom (I stayed in the 6 beds dorm) with sturdy comfortable beds (each dorm bed has blackout curtains, its own power sockets and a reading lamp). It is at a very convenient location, less than 5 mins walk from the Formosa MRT station and the Liuhe Tourist Night Market. I also walked from the Main Train Station to the hostel in 10 mins. It has a 7-Eleven downstairs and breakfast shop right across the street. I would definitely stay here again if I return to Kaohsiung.
