Awesome Backpacker Place”

This was so far my favorite hostel. The owner is super charming and gives every evening a small party. It's one of the few places where you can tell that the place is not run for profit. There is a kitchen and clothes can be washed for free. I ended up extending my stay from 3 to 10 days. I can definitely recommend this place, it's hard to not love this place.

Best in Tainan ”

Great hostel located in heart of old down..in a quiet alley.. tons of cultural/tourist spots and restaurants around. Owner is very professional and cordial, greeted every new comer with a plate of fresh local fruit and a brief introduction of the city(many valuable advices provided) The house is maintained very well- neat and orderly, the decorations of good taste. Last but not least, the owner throws gathering party every night at 9pm, imagine coming back from a day’s exhaustive tour with a table full of fresh fruit,snacks , beer and smiling faces waiting. Only thing is male’s room doesn’t have toilet on the Sam floor. But it is ok. 这家青年旅舍真的十分不错,位置好,闹中取静,出门几步就是著名景点赤崁楼。好多美味餐厅和食摊。便利店也很近。老板当地人,热情,职人精神。每晚房友们聚会,老板请大家水果小吃啤酒。强烈建议。

Totally recommended!”

The host was extremely friendly and helpful. He provided a map that recommends some must-visit spots and must-try foods! I’m a foodie lover and likes exploring historical places. It’s my second time visiting Tainan and I’m still overwhelmed with the slow paced lifestyle and amazing views and delicious foods. Okay, let’s go back to this hostel. I booked a three person room and it was clean and spacious enough. The location is not bad either and accessible to a lot tourist spots. 😊

Small dorm with only four beds so it was perfect. Clean room and clean bathroom. Near the train station (10min by walking) and there are two buses that goes near the seaside (5min by walking). The owner is really kind and he does his best to help people or create a social atmosphere in this hostel ( he arranged a meeting for the backpackers during my stay) I dont think I could have a better stay in Tainan elsewhere, so highly recommended.

It's such a quaint and homey place. The owner was very nice and friendly. On my arrival he gave me a tour of the house and where the bathrooms and toilets are located. He gave me fruits and beer every night. Most of the guest where Pokemon Go players attending the Tainan Safari Zone so everyone was friendly with one another though this was the first time they all met. I would definitely come back again, and bring my family when I visit Tainan.

The hostel locates in a small and quiet alley less than 1km from Tainan station. Very good location to Chikah Tower, bus station to main tourist attraction. The host is nice, he greets you with refreshing welcome fruit, and organizes a “party” for everyone staying at the hostel. It’s really nice to sit down and get to know other fellow travelers and share some stories as well as useful tips.
