Value for money

Posted Aug 1, 2018 on Hotels
The place was clean as you’ll have to change to indoor slippers before entering, however the walls were really thin and I could hear the rain at night. The mattress was thin too but okay for one nights sleep. The attached bathroom was clean and there was soap provided. Location wise it was a 5-10mins walk from Chiayi Train Station and very convenient with many food choices around. Wenhua Road night market was also walkable around 15 mins away. The staff were really helpful and there’s a basement open area you could use, sofas and even a Mac desktop! Do note there are no elevators so best to travel light, or you could ask for a helping hand!

Good location

Posted Apr 9, 2018
Pros: Close by to Chiayi train station and not far from the centre of town either.
Cons: Provision of line drying on the roof terrace for laundry.
Good location, comfortable and clean room. The communal area is on the top floor and includes the roof terrace. It's a shame that there isn't much seating on the terrace and that the area looked forgotten. I had to check out before breakfast started but the staff helpfully told me where the suppliers were and that I should help myself.

Great staff

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. It's small but comfortable, great design and top floor common area. The staff were amazing, so friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Chiayi.

A modern BnB

It's my 2nd stay at Light Hostel, everything was rather hassle-free. Very friendly people at the reception. Love the kitchen at L5 for packed supper (if you also prefer not to dine in the room), a breather at balcony and you can also do your laundry here. Short walk to the night market. Cute luggage lift by the way.

Clean hostel with young vibes

Posted Sep 18, 2016
We stay in the double room for a night, the price and location are super, I like their atomsphere and they have a really large common area, but the air-con in the room are bit old, quite noisy, also, you can easily hear other guests talking while in the room.
