Basic place providing what is expected from an average backpacker, however one toilet/bathroom is shared between all guests, including staff. No airconditioning in the room, and no sinks in the place except for the kitchen and outside. Quite noisy in the early morning. Staff not available in the morning. Great to have free bikes available for use, though brakes would be handy! Friendly and quirky and good fun in the right frame of mind, however also quite expensive compared to most of Taiwan.
The place is owned and manageed by a nice, passionate well traveled couple who love and understand hostel living. They are always available to assist unlike many hostels in Taiwan with absent owners. They make effort to introduce guests to each other that create a communal spirit. I planned to stay three days and round up staying for a week and counting. Other staff are nice too. They are attentive but never intrusive and all the guests are considerate because of the cheerful mood in this place.
