    Beyond my imagination”

    Even though the check-in procedure isn't as flexible I( needed to pay DP first since I got the promo price), the staff was really nice and helpful for waiting me arrive a bit later than the check-in schedule. The room was superb! Clean, comfortable, and even though it's not as quiet, they provide earplugs. They also state the rules strictly to keep quiet during certain hours. This place was one of the most memorable experience in Kaohsiung. Will definitely be back.

    Overpriced for a literal tent”

    Beware that the cheapest option is truly a tent, with all of the comfort of sleeping on the ground. Our feet were hanging out and there was no outlet or lamp inside. If you upgrade (for $200nt) you can get an air-conditioned, lighted tent/cabin/hut, which is probably more comfortable. PROS: The facilities were nice, cute decor, clean, on-site laundry, discount beverages available CONS: uncomfortable beds, no bedside amentities at cheapest level, absent staff (nobody was there when we left at 9am)

    Excellent stop even for a longer stay”

    Definitely staying here again next time I visit Kaohsiung. Location is excellent, very nearby to the MRT station, close to bus stations with easy access to one of the biggest shopping complexes in Kaohsiung. Few stops away from the main train station so can easily take day trips outside of Kaohsiung. Staff was very nice and helpfull. The "room" was quite cozy and surprisingly large sized. Easily will fit in two, and even more easier for one. All required facilities like washing machine and drier available. Lounge area where to relax and eat or play games. Very quite and cozy feeling. Showers had a decent amount of pressure and plenty of hot water. :)

    Exceeded my expectations”

    Booked a double room even though I travelled alone as I stayed there for 3 nights. The location was ideal as it is only a 4 minutes walk from the nearest MRT and it is situation 2 storeys above 7 eleven in the same building. Signs was prominent and it was easy to find the place. The lady boss was very helpful and patient in suggesting attractions to visit. This is a hostel that gives you intimacy yet also having the opportunity to interact with people in the common areas. A fine balance between privacy and socialising, I would say.

    This hostel is the cutest hostel I've ever stayed in. I slept in a single tent. The hostel actually is small, but the facility is good. The bathroom stall is big and they have common area where people can use hair dryer and share some products with the othe guests. The location was on top of 7-11. So if you're suddenly hungry in a mid of night, you just need to go don and eat.
