At 帕佩賽/Pas-Pressé Tainan Hostel, we have converted an old rice milling store into a comfortable hostel with modern amenities. We chose this site to showcase the historic charm of Tainan and the citizen spirit of olden times. In early Tainan, it was common to see a large family living together with uncles, aunts and cousins sharing common areas. The ground floor was typically used as a store to do small business and the upper floors were the living quarters for the family. Residential and commercial merged seamlessly in one building and this home/store space was the center of many important activities in a person’s life.
We’re conveniently located in the Western Central District, in a residential area that is an easy 5-10 minute walk or a quick bus ride from major sites of the city.
Nearby attractions include -
Shennong old St.(神農街) and Yaowang Temple(藥王廟) - a Qing dynasty-built temple in the oldest trading street in Tainan.
Hai’an Rd.(海安路) and Guohua St.(國華街) - a famous food street and traditional market, and some street-art creatures aside.
Tainan canal – there are landscape parks and exercise trails along the canal, and you could take 30-minute casual walk to the harbourside in Anping Dist.(安平)

We would like to present some elements that are disappearing nowadays, like white wood doors which is a signature of rice stores, wall bookcases, washed granolithic walls and floors(a traditional technique that new builders do not use often), wooden floors arranged in a cross pattern in single room, and a huge raw wall with popular(according to constructor) semi-transparent paintings in the corridor of 40’s-50’s in Tainan.
We have huge common space and a dining room with microwave and a mini coffee machine. The size of bed is 105 cm x 186 cm, we offer 15 beds in total and have 2 bathroom and a separated urinal.
Furthermore, we would like to let you know that single room and double room had interior windows, and the latter(double room) is next to a bathroom. Female dorm and mixed dorm are with balconies, however there is no available window in twin bed room. Reading lights are not available in 6 mix dorm.
