Best hostel I've seen in Kaohsiung”

Perfect location - literally in front of the metro station! The place was convenient and had everything you need in a hostel, including laundry and a small kitchen. There's free breakfast too. The lounge is big and inviting, you might actually be able to meet other travellers here. I stayed in 4 different hostels in the neighborhood and TripGG was definitely my favorite!

Nice Location & Great Place + Helpful Staff”

I stayed there with 2 of my friends. The place is very clean and large. Shower room and toilet is very clean. No complain. The adapter plug at your bed is universal, so don't worry about the adapter type. There is a living room for you to hang around if you aren't heading to bed early. And a computer with quick internet access for you to use. Fridge is full of drinks and kitchen is full of food in case you are lazy to walk out. The location is very good, once you take the lift down, you will face the train station entrance Exit 1 (Formosa Boulevard). Then you can get to anywhere you want. Anyway if you are looking the way to this hostel, take the train to Formosa Boulevard station, then head to Exit 1, turn left, look up, it's on the 6th floor of the building in front of the station. There is a noodle store in walking distance, it's very nice. At night time, you can walk to the nearest Night Market over there call Liuhe Night Market. Staffs are very friendly over there, they are helpful too. Thanks Tina & Angela for everything during our stay there. Definitely will recommend this to anyone that would like to travel to Kaohsiung. Happy Traveller, Derrick Loh

I stayed there for 3 nights. The most impressed is their location, which is just next to the metro station of the city centre. Inside the hostel, you can have a great view of the city. The evening market is just 3 mins walk. It is very convenient. The room is quite clean and the staff are very nice. It is recommended to stay there when you travel to Kaohsiung.

Excellent”

The hostel is situated in front of 美丽岛station (exit 1), but a bit difficult to find on arrival, because it situated at level 6, and there is only a small, dark colored sign board at entrance. (Look for building no. 117, 南华银行)。 The facilities in the room and shared facilities are very nice, staff are friendly and helpful. The only aspect I wasn't happy with, was the payment method. When doing booking through Agoda, and after my booking was confirmed, I was never been informed that the hostel actually not prefer credit card payment. I was charged with 3% processing fee - although I aware that credit card payment came with processing fee, but from my own experience staying in hotel and hostel in other places of Taiwan, i don't think all property charge the processing fee on customers. Of course I respect tge choice of this property if they would like to, but i think it would be better to alert the customers during we do the booking, say you don't prefer credit card payment and customers will be charged if still keen to. You know, i stayed for 8 nights, which cost NT 16350, this is quite a large amount, whether in local currency, or my own country's currency, if i'm going to bring cash or activate oversea ATM withdrawal, i need some prearrangement. Without such prearrangement i proceed to pay with credit card, hence the price was different from what it was during booking.

Convenient, comfortable and quiet hostel which is less than five minutes walk to Formosa Boulevard station and Liuhe Night Market. Awesome lounge where I can do my work all afternoon and enjoy the serenity and city view of Kaohsiung. Kind and staff. Two shops below the hostel sells decent soup and popiah. Faulty cupboard door and shower head though.

Basic accommodation where one can get almost everything”

We stayed for 1 night in a private double room in late September. This hostel is situated in a perfect location in just a stone's throw to Liuhe Night Market and the MRT interchange station! Friendly staff, property well-secured and managed, complimentary coffee and toast in the morning, and comfortable common area are definitely advantages of Trip GG. Last but not least, though we didn't use the kitchen, it's helpful to have one which is fully equipped in a stay place.

Good stay but can be better”

Great location, directly just outside of Formosa Station and there're super nice stalls selling braised rice, rice bowl cake right on the left of the hostel, which is also directly in front of the Formosa exit. Thought the hostel might be quite happening but it's not. It was super quiet during my stay and the staff were not exactly friendly as well, there was no interaction within themselves either. Facilities wise, it's all good - women's bathroom has a lot of cubicles and was spacious at the dressing tables. However, the water pressure for the shower heads was a bit low and the WATER TEMPERATURE is quite bad - it kept going super hot and super cold, and it doesn't stay at the temperature you've adjusted. Very weird no matter how hard I tried.
