Good place to stay overnight in Lukang”
There aren't many guesthouse options if you want to spend the night in Lukang. This place is fairly easy to find on an alley that runs parallel to one of the main streets in Lukang with the hostel being located right by a historic gate or small archway. Note that just motorbikes have access to the narrow alley and that everything in Lukang is within walking distance from it. There is a hot water dispenser but a limited number of cups, dishes and not much in the way of silverware with that being my only real complaint - beyond the very steep/narrow stairs that go upstairs. Otherwise, the beds have mosquito netting which is a must - even in early December. This also means you will get bit when sitting downstairs. Each locker is opened by a number combination that you set yourselves. There are also sandals to wear provided by the hostel, laundry facilities and hot water showers. The front desk staff or owners can speak some English for basic questions - like checking the bus schedule for going back to Taipei. You will need to SMS or email them about your arrival time so that someone can be there to check you in (Agoda will email you their contact details / directions in multiple languages). If coming or going to Taipei, the bus station is less than 10 minutes walk and on the road that gives access to the alley that Smalleye is located on. Otherwise, you can get off the bus from Changhua at the intersection by the alley (there is a 7-eleven on the corner of the main intersection). Just note that Lukang shuts down fairly early on weekdays (no night market etc) when there aren't many tourists around. If you stay overnight, some of the lit up temples are worth revisiting at night.

Cozy guesthouse in good location”
Smalleye gueshouse is located in the small peaceful alley. It is also near bus station from/to lugang. And many restaurant and convenient stores are in walking distance. Hostel itself is not that big, but has cozy, vintage style.

Different location as indicated”
We chose to book a room with smalleye backpacker mainly due to its location in the city centre. However, we were brought to a room that was at least 10min away when we checked in (the staff mentioned that this room was with a partner company but because they could only reflect one address, the actual location of the room was not reflected).
