Interaction with guests

Our guest said:
Most hostels meet the ‘basic’ wants and needs of today’s traveler. But Homey stands out, better.
Kelly, Josh and Ai-Chi, Homey’s owners/operators, only hire and work with kindred spirits, and they all treat all travelers as a true friend from the beginning of their stay, till the end…and beyond! This is what makes Homey unique, and special and forever memorable!!! I know, from experience.
What makes a hostel an amazing experience? The people!
It’s always great people who help create our greatest experiences in life! Homey is a place of great people, whose aim is to make you feel at home! They customize your care! It’s why Homey Hostel will remain a lifelong memory!
Homey speaks the traveler’s language…literally and figuratively!

The hosts are welcoming, friendly and accommodating to our requests for odd hour check-in/check-out. The bed, mattress and linens were clean, comfy. The common area and shared toilets/bathrooms were well maintained and hygienic. This is our first time to stay in a hostel and gotta say that the feeling we had here was nothing short of excellence especially for the amount that we paid. Highly recommend for those who want to travel in style with a budget!

What makes a hostel an amazing experience? The people!

我能夠清楚的認出,每一位來過的旅人,不是因為他們給我錢;
我能夠明白的說出,這裡發生的點滴,不是因為我們裝了監視器;
我能夠記得,大家離開時微笑的道別,不是因為表面上的禮貌。

謝謝所有來住過紅米的朋友,願意坐下來告訴我屬於你們的精采故事,
謝謝來自四面八方的你們,我的青春歲月因為遇到你們,而感覺我的存在充滿色彩。

人與人的交流是我們核心價值。
我們並不追求花火一般絢麗的五星級裝潢,憑藉著對世界旅行的愛好,對故鄉台灣的鍾情,對認識新朋友的熱情,
我們努力的款待每一位在這裡相遇的朋友。

「我們沒有制服,只有像朋友一般的相處」、
「我們沒有制式,只用真誠的心和你打招呼」、
「我們沒有業績,只在乎妳妳的旅程是否順利、體驗台灣最美的風景」。

你能夠清楚而明確的辨識出這群人,熱情洋溢、看著你開心就心滿意足的一群人,
他的名字叫紅米。
