Cleanliness, location, price

I thought this was a great hostel. It's in a very good location, close to the subway - just make sure you go out Exit 6 which is right near where the hostel is. The bed was reasonably comfortable, the hostel was kept nice and clean, and the staff were generally pretty friendly and accommodating. Would recommend this hostel to anyone wanting to visit Kaohsiung.
