        Super pretty and cosy hostel!”
        Looks exactly like photos and definitely super cosy, especially the common area! Always make a point to head to common area to chill before bed because it will be such a waste not to chill there!there’s also TV, iMac available for use. The room may look normal but it’s surprisingly cosy even after you put the blind down! Public shower facilities also super spacious, each shower room comes with an additional area (dry) that allows you to put your clothes and get changed. Breakfast voucher provided that needs to claim from a local store selling fish skin related food (porridge, soup, etc), taste alright, would prefer toasts and spread though. SUPER RECOMMENDED!!! The only downside is distance may be slightly further from train station (30mins walk)

        Pros: clean, great design, good facilities, close to many restaurants Cons: many rules and regulations need to follow like no shoes available inside the hostel area, etc... (for me is ok, but perhaps nt for some typical tourist...)

        Small rooms with too many beds and no fresh air”
        The people at the front desk were amazingly helpful and friendly!! The common kitchen area big and clean. But the dorm was small, without fresh air and there is no door between the bathroom/toilet - and the dorm. So unfortunately that my goofy roommates needed to shower in the middle of the night. I recommend this place to young budget travellers, not to senior people.

        The hostel is quite far from the train station, about 20 minutes walk, but when taking the HSR to Tainan it is just 5 minutes walk from the HSR shuttle bus Siao Simen stop. The building is easily recognizable and the facilities were clean. Simple breakfast is served at 8:30 am and bicycles are ready to hire for $100 ntd for one day. I booked a 6 bed dorm room, and one downside is only the toilet and bath. Shared T&B per room with clear doors. They also have luggage area to store your stuff if you arrived earlier than 3:00 PM.

        Great location with food street near by! ”
        Currently there’s construction going on right outside the hostel, so the bus route is being affected. But that is okay because the nearest bus stop is really near to the hostel as well. In fact, that bus stop was the bus stop (Ximen You-ai street I think) I went to reach most of the other locations I wanna go in Tainan. So it was a blessing in disguise for the diversion of route. Food street and some bars are right outside the hostel. The common area is really huge and clean. They have all basic facilities provided as well. Overall, great stay with pretty good location but definitely need to take a bus from the station to reach. The bus frequency in Tainan is quite okay so no issues with that.

        Excellent place to stay in Tainan”
        My reception and host at that time - Mr. Cole was exceptional. Always on top of things, patient, helpful and professional at all times. I would highly recommend this place whereby any foodie would appreciate its location with stalls right at its door step leading all the way to the famous hawker streets. The bike rental service provided was no doubt the best in value throughout my travels for the last 2 months to various countries. I would strongly recommend renting the bicycles to explore the city, though do take caution as the roads are always busy with motorcyclist. The living and dining area is spacious and bright with small pockets for you to mingle, relax or get on your laptop for some work. Thanks Cole and team for your hospitality, looking forward to my stay here again in October!

        Althought its a hostel, the cleanliness,facilities is very good.. Its within walking distance to one of the street market open in the afternoon. The lobby is big and spacious. Their toilet is inside the room and not like most of the hostel the toilet is at another area. The staff is also friendly to assist with any inquiries.

        Bathroom in the backpacker room is annoying”
        Excellent place with very spacious lounge, kitchen and chill out area. It's clean everywhere except the bathroom in the basement. The weird design of a bathroom without the door in the backpacker room means after certain hours guests have to go to the basement to shower. Apart from that, it's a pleasant stay with a lot of comfort.

        Really enjoyed my stay there, really enjoyed Tainan. Would love to return to this city for more, and would definitely consider staying there again. Booked a double room, spacious, plenty of room for 2 big luggages. With table and side table. Toilet is cleaner than the picture seems, really satisfied with that. The lobby area is a gem. Full of books, magazines, pamphlets, things to entertain you and let you know more about Tainan or anywhere. Really interesting! Spent my night fiddling with the materials there. Staffs are the most most most helpful people I've met. Nice and polite! Only they don't work 24hrs, so please settle what you need to ask before they knock off. Location is superb. Just rent their bicycle and ride around. Plenty of alleys to go into and explore!
