HACIENDA II GUEST HOUSE & CAFE

HACIENDA II GUEST HOUSE & CAFE

462, JungMei Street
停業 Closed

Long-time owner of the Haciena Guest House, Steve Keith (also widely known as "Hawaii Steve") has opened an all-new, much-larger guest house which, he stresses, is a whole new business from his old one. The new business, opened with partner Sharon Lin, is next door to Su Bau Cafe and is fronted by the first-floor Guest House Cafe. This laid-back place serves up various sandwiches (like club and chicken) and burgers for between NT$110 and NT$130, plus pizzas (NT$200). There are also fruit shakes (like banana orange), teas, soft drinks and bottled beers (about NT$100). The clean, orderly guest house is on the five floors upstairs, including a second-floor community lounge and eating area. There are 11 rooms in three sizes, including three dormitories that cost NT$300/person/night. Individual rooms, with single bed, desk, chair, nightstand and private bathroom, are NT$400-500 per night, and about NT$5,000/month (includes utility fees). Steve says he models his place after a Bangkok-style traveler/youth hostel--not expensive, without any frills. As was the case with his first place, Hacienda II is a safe, clean operation (no drugs, fighting, etc. tolerated) where male and female guests, foreign or Taiwanese, can feel comfortable.
