Very nice place, a bit expensive but worth of this price. It is clean and convenient, the only drawback is stuff that was not able provide any information about buses and eating. Location is very good and the place is extremely safe.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. It's a small place but comfortable, great design and top floor common area. The staff were amazing - so friendly and helpful (and recommended some great local food nearby)! I will definitely stay here again next time...More

Super Clean and friendly staff, beautiful hand drawn Map,Luggage elevator,share room with shower and toilet, nice rooftop great for beer,the Best Backpacker ever!!! 最令我難忘的是早餐時刻: 晨光從天台外整片落地窗灑進來,小野麗莎的bossa nova 融合了咖啡香飄散在空氣中,ㄧ本雜誌,ㄧ顆蘋果,ㄧ片烤焦的蒜香厚片,最奢侈的享受,是任時光虛擲,慵懶的歪坐在木地板的靠枕上,等待著旅行魂被緩慢喚醒。 十點多沿著光彩街悠閒騎行單車,兩旁屋舍的陰影為你檔住烈陽,穿過人跡散去的傳統市場,到檜意森活村& 舊監獄& 森林之歌,十幾分鐘方便自在。 旅館乾淨,友善,專屬鞋櫃+室內拖,四人房裡有專屬浴室,行李電梯 !!!太貼心~免費WI-FI,咖啡&茶,早餐,租腳踏車50元/ 6小時 (佛心來的啊!) 最喜歡它的交誼廳,寬敞+ 數不盡的藏書(嘉義文史也有!) 雜誌,餐廳廚房用具齊全,斜對面超市補充啤酒好方便。 室內設計擺設充滿創意用心,無論是燈具,茶几,層架,天台的桌腳,改建老屋保留的樓梯,都能讓人細細品玩。是ㄧ間高雅又親切的青年旅館。
