8/10 Very Good

It's very close by the main street and surrounded by lots of food which is amazing but the room's sound insulation effect could be better, we keep hearing staff are laughing and yelling, we can understand it's a good work environment, but it's hard to fall asleep.

Comfortable, value for money.
The staff were really nice and friendly. My room had 3 double deckers for 6 people and had a bathroom. It was nice. Value for money. The free breakfast is at a stall which serves Tainan local food but just be aware that not everyone will like the taste of the food. I particularly liked the common area/kitchen. It was huge and nice.

Clean & Clean Stay
Its a nice hostel, very new and clean and comes with a toilet and bath area for every room of 6. However sometimes the room can be quite noisy if you are unlucky and meet travelers who snores loudly when sleeping.

Value for money!!!
Very good location. A little misleading on road name, but look for number 309 on You Ai road. Nice living area and well thought out for tourists. Breakfast is filling but don't expect too many variety - bread and toast is good
