        Heartwarming hostel filled with warmth of Tainan people”

        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!

        Excellent”

        I had a very enjoyable stay at Light Hostel. The staff were very friendly and provided information about the local area and places to eat when I needed it. They also humoured me by trying to understand and answer my garbled Mandarin, which I very much appreciated. The room was clean and there were lockers provided however the shower/toilet had no separating door so sounds and smells were free to roam. This was especially annoying when another guest returned at 3 am and decided to take a shower. The hostel has signs requesting guests to use a shower in the basement at this time so they do try to prevent this scenario. Overall it is a very nice and quiet place to relax while you explore Tainan.

        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.

        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.

        Brand New Design Hostel with Hotel Facilities”

        Cleaniness, Staff Performance, Design

        I stayed 2 nights. Staff is very welcoming, clean and the common areas are beautifully decorated with modern design furniture. The hotel rooms are spacious, comfortable beds and big bathrooms. Only missing coffee facilities in each bedroom, and my room had no view. I am sure I was just facing the wrong side. But overall I would definitely stay there again if I go back to Tainan.

        Great hostel for price ”

        We had a great stay at the hostel, price is good and almost more of a hotel then hostel feeling room. For us there were a few cons, that’s why it isn’t a full 5 star. The staff speak very poorly English and don’t have any recommendation for restaurants or activities (language barrier good be the problem) and there was no more breakfast, due to the low session. The rest was great. Nice clean and a big room. Walking distance for most of the highlights and use the app taiwan buss to get around the rest of the city.

        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)

        Good for a night and friendly staff”

        A very youthful vibe and an OK location for getting to places around Tainan via bus (the only public transport). Every dorm room has its own toilet, which is more of a curse as people start doing their business in the morning and you hear everything. The upper bunks also lack support railing so some of my stuff accidentally fell down to the poor guy below.
