  • Excellent experience provided by hosts Vicky and Marcus. They meticulously went through a customized map with things to do in the city, as well as detailed information on the Alishan journey. As a result, a full day spent in Chiayi city itself was enjoyable and fulfilling. There is also free food (fruit and drink mixes) and drinking water, while the bedroom and washroom are thoroughly cleaned daily.

  • It is THE BEST of all hostels I stayed in my 10-days around Taiwan trip. Besides its good location, the facility looks like new and is extremely clean and well maintained. The hosts are very sociable & friendly, we had very pleasant hours-long chat. There is a working kitchen with fridge and necessary utensils, great for people like me to enjoy my favorite watermelon there. They also provide very helpful sightseeing tips around Chiayi & Taiwan. All in all, it represents the goodness of Taiwan.

  • Assemble is a beautiful hostel! The owners are *immensely* kind and helpful, and they have great taste in design, too! A computer with internet would have been nice, but I can't complain.
