The location is top-notch, very close to the train station and central to just about anywhere you might want to go in the city. The facilities are minimal (it's a youth hostel!) but things are kept clean and in good order. Five stars is for...More
A comfortable and cozy female hostel, with clean and quiet environment.
I stayed in 8-bed dorm and it was not full throughout my stay. I met some good friends there. just not close to the train terminal.
Stayed one night in the 4-bed dorm. The place was clean and comfortable enough, especially for the price. There were a couple odd quirks though - it's branded as a female-only hostel, yet there is a urinal in the washroom (?!).
Also, the notice in...More
We booked this hostel on HostelWorld. We are a married man and woman and indicated this when booking. The staff was surprised when we arrived and informed us that it was an all female hostel! Oops! Thankfully they honored our booking and we had a...More

The West Central District is the most populous and the busiest area. A lot of shops and hotels crowd the district, and the long-standing history results in a variety of street food. In addition to that, this district also has the highest number of temples. This is how it got the name “Tainan’s Pantheon.” Historic buildings are literally ubiquitous. For example, Hayashi Department Store, National Museum of Taiwan
Literature, Confucius Temple, Chihkan Tower (formerly Fort Provintia), Sacrificial Rites Martial Temple, Tainan Grand Mazu (name of a goddess) Temple, etc. Recently, the tourism in Tainan has laid emphasis on alleys and lanes. Examples include Fujhong Street specialising in creative handicrafts, as-you-stroll desserts on Jhengsing Street, Shennong Street lined with hundred-year-old ancient houses, Sinyi Street on which the old city gate stands, Sinmei Street where old and new cultures fuse together, and Guohua Street and Baoan Raod famous for all the savoury food. All the traditional and delicious food and flavours are about to burst in your mouth. The North District, on the other hand, is a quiet secret hideaway. Lane 321 on Gongyuan Road used to be a Japanese soldiers’ dormitory. Now a few artists have set up their studios here. There are diversified art styles in each old Japanese-style house. The Garden Night Market on Haian Road is one of the famous night markets in both Tainan and Taiwan, and was the top 12 Facebook check-in location worldwide in 2013.
