WOW TAINAN International Hostel was my first worldpacker experiencie, and it was amazing!! I need to tell everyone that who reads this review that i lived one of the best experiences of my life there, i met many beautiful people that i will never forget and i hope to see again soon.

The activities are simple like doing beds and maintain the floors and bathroom's clean. The schedule is perfect because you have a lot of time to do other activities and get to know the city. Also the hostel provide breakfast and lunch which is great.

This is the 1st time I work in exchange living in a hostel. It's also the start of my journey. I enjoy food and meet some local persons. Although this is in my country I could still meet some travelers there. Everybody talk about hobbies, language learning and travel experience. It's wonderful. I really appreciate the the host gave me the opportunity. Thank you all.

My stay at Wow Tainan Hostel was an amazing experience. I learned a lot about housekeeping, without feeling that I was even working. The tasks were easy. Everyone is friendly. The hostel is filled with artworks. I also enjoyed the yoga class. I will surely go back.
