Exceptional”

I hesitated a lot before booking this hostel coz obvious it is really cheap and facilities look dated. But I will stay here again next time in Tainan. The atmosphere is great, hotel next to train station, everything is clean and staff is great. I personally saw the staff clean the facilities like every hour the night I stayed there. Staff told / invited me to join the nighty event, they have different events every night, I think there is a schedule posted next to the front desk office. I didn’t have time to enjoy the breakfast, but I did enjoy the 2nd floor and basemen common rooms, especially the basement, so cozy and spacious. After the nighty event, when almost everyone left, I took the sofa all for myself, did a 30 mins stretch, and read one of the books they provide (it’s like a little book treasure hunt). I thought the bed won’t be comfortable, yet I stand corrected, I slept like a baby. I enjoy my stay here a lot, so vibrant, alive and young. So, don’t be timid by some comments and photos. Book here!

This place is really close to Tainan train station, walking for abt a min. And you might get a cheaper price on Agoda.com. Staff are kind, facilities are fine. Most importantly, bed is very clean. Breakfast for free: toast with jam and soft-boiled eggs. If you haven't live in Old man Captaun

Basically the hostel is comfortable, here I sum out few points that whattl when well. 1. Good location, as it just next to the Tainan train station, just that the location is a bit trick to be find. But you can always approach the people around and ask. 2. The hostel is built on the old train office, so it has a very vantage feel. 3. The host of the hostel will prepare some food or activity in the night time, it is a good chance to meet with other people that stay at the hostel.

Book here definitely when you're in Tainan. Strategic location. ”

The staffs are informative and friendly about giving tips on where you should visit when you're in Tainan. It's location is only 2 mins walk from Tainan Station which definitely will make your life easier. On my arrival, they already offered me a map and recommended some local attractions. On the last day of my trip, thankfully I took their advice by staying in Tainan rather than heading south to Kashiung at 2:30p.m. and I had to catch my flight from Taipei at 12midnight. Decent breakfast are provided. Book here!!

Near to Tainan train station and bus stop”

The place you can meet up with new friends, near to the train station and bus stop. The place looks old and something like an old-school hostel. The air cond will only operate after 6 pm until 9 am during summer. If you have not plan anything for Tainan, please seek advice from the girl receptionist, she will give you the correct information and the food recommended won't go wrong. Everyone is friendly and I have met new friends here and we travel along to visit Tainan.

Great location, super friendly staff!”

The hostel is next to Tainan Train Station, which only needs no more than 1 minute walk from the Exit. While it is close to the train station, there is no noise from the trains at all. It is also close to most of eateries, malls, parks and temples and museums. Staff are very friendly and helpful! They will treat you like a good friend. They organised gathering each evening and made guests local dessert. Facilities wise, comfortable pillow, bed and blanket. They also have a washing machine and a dryer, which of course need NTD 30 for each service. WiFi is okay. Breakfast included toasts and jams such as chocolate, strawberry, peanuts and butter. Most of the shower rooms and toilets are combined, so expect wet floor. As I slept next to the window, whenever someone opened the doom's door, it quivered and caused some noises. Overall, my experience there was positive!

A little hard to find the small sign by the scooter shop and the tiny lane. Staff were very nice and helpful and spoke English well. Breakfast is bread from the fridge with a choice of topping, and there is always water, hot and cold, available. The bunks are well separated by curtains, and the heatpump goes on at 6pm. I like the city of Tainan, a lot. Thank you :-)

Very good for solo travelers or small groups. Location is very near the train station, when you exit Tainan train station, just look on your left to the scooter/motorcycle rental shop and you will find the entrance. Beds are clean and very private. Will book again when I go back to Tainan.

Atmosphere”

Hostel itself was nice, it is right at the train station but may be a bit hard to find, as the entrance is from the back side. You will see the sign by the bubble tea shop. The atmosphere in that hostel was extraordinary - every evening they have some random free activity (coffee roasting, key chain making...) that is really fun to do and everyone working there is willing to help you with thatever you need. A girl working when I arrived was showing me where to go in the city for solid 15 minutes. There may be a small problem due to the fact that not everyone knows English (usually just a couple of words) but they are all so extremely helpful that you manage it somehow. As an example, myself knowing just 2 words in chinese - they managed to teach me a board game with chinese characters.
