The rooms are kinda of small for double. For triple, it is ok. Bathroom for both double and triple are very cramp. If you are a big american fellow, you will find difficulties to move around in the bathroom.
There is a small night market near the hotel.

Stayed here as part of our tour itinerary. Not sure how much it would cost per night since the accommodation was already included as part of the tour. The room we stayed was ok in size, with an old toilet. The room itself was fine, not especially clean or dirty. Gear hotel is located a bit away from the city centre, so we took a cab to the night market and the shopping area instead of walking. It cost us about NTD100 from the night market back to the hotel. Breakfast served was ok, but could be improved with the food quality.

The Gear Hotel has everything you need - it's clean enough, they provided us with breakfast (albeit from McDonald's), and it's extremely cheap. It's also walking distance from the Love River which is great. However, it's located a little far from the city centre and the nearest metro station (Kaohsiung Main Station) is a 15-25 minute walk down the Jian Guo San Lu. However, distance from the city centre and the metro lines aside, the hotel is clean and graet value for the price. I would definitely consider staynig their again.
