My favourite hostel of all is here in Kaohsiung!
Right after our fun day in Yunlin, we immediately board the train to Kaohsiung! Out of all the states I went, I love Kaohsiung’s vibes the most!
We stayed in Backpackers Inn for 2D1N. I kinda feel sad that we left Kaohsiung too soon but there’s always a ‘next time’! ✈️
There’s this kiosk in front of the entrance selling breakfast and juices! We didn’t get to try ’em out tho.
RECEPTION + LOUNGE AREA / COMMON AREA
The lobby & lounge area!
I loveeee their halloween’s deco! It makes the space looks more fun! Their atmosphere is more like fun and quirky which I love!
Do you know what you must bring along to Taiwan? Yes, a notebook/travel journal! We brought our journal with us everyday and just spot for any stamp station 📍Backpackers Inn has their own stamp too! I mean stampSSS!! All of their stamps were super cute and it’s all about Kaohsiung! I had it all fully stamped in my journal 🌝
Beside spending a good 10 minutes on stamps, they provides books for travellers to leave their notes; typical hostel lol. I left mine too, in one of those books!
This hostel’s fun is never ending!! They have lots of board games too! I could literally spend half the day just in their lounge area alone!
KITCHEN + DINING
Mini kitchen & dining area which we didn’t managed to use it. It has the basic utensils, induction cooker, toaster, microwave – just perfect for you to cook a meal! And for those who wanted a quick meal (e.g cup noodles) or snacks, they sell ’em too!
Talking about efforts, even the lift’s decor can’t be left out lol
Ta-da! I slept on the upper bunk bed! (which i ended up slept on upper bunk bed for the rest of the hostels lol). Provided are a cabinet to put your belonging, hangers to hang your clothes underneath the cabinets & spacious space to keep your luggage underneath the cabinet.
That’s how it looked like. A card holder for you to put your card + turn on the electricity, a very brilliant design after all cos I’m such a clumsy & messy person and can make anything lost in a second lol. The space was really comfy & private except you have to bring universal adapter to use the plug.
I really like their toilet and i think it is the most thoughtful one? Normally hostel will provides tissue rolls only but in Backpackers Inn, you will get cotton wipes, cotton swabs and small basket to put your own toiletries.
No worries because hair dryers provided as well. Rest assured and pack light!
Beside lounge area, the rooftop was my second favourite place in this hostel. The view was just simply amazing especially during night time. I wished I’d had a beer or two with me and enjoy the view and night breeze but sadly I didn’t get to really enjoy ’em!
Except that there’s no one looking after the ‘store’. All you got to do is take what you want and pay it to the piggy bank there & be honesty lol. Various selections of board game to ‘lend’ from the store as well to enjoy in on the rooftop!
