For shopping most of the major department stores and shopping centres are either walking distance from the hostel, or an easy bus ride away. The bars, clubs and restaurants of the Canal District and Little Europe are also very close by, about 10-15minutes walking distance. There are bus stops 2 minutes from the hostel, so getting to Donghai University and Art Street is quick and easy.
This is a small, cozy hostel. We have a 6-bed male dorm, 6-bed female dorm, and a group room that can take up to 6 people. Each of the rooms has air conditioning and electric fans, hair dryers and kettles, and all bathrooms have free shower gel and shampoo. Each of the rooms also has wi-fi internet access. There is a small lobby with TV, and also a few bicycles and scooter for rent.
There is a also a large private double room with its own bathroom. This room has its own TV, fridge, hairdryer, fluffy towels, kettle with coffee and tea, bottled water and a sunny balcony. Its been beautifully decorated and is perfect for couples, although single travelers have also enjoyed it!
There is an excellent food market next to the hostel with many stalls and restaurants serving various delicious Taiwanese snacks and meals, as well as lots of tea vendors. Also most of Taichungs night markets are easy to get to from here.
There are bus stops 2 minutes from the hostel, so most buses coming into Taichung will pass this way making it convenient to get here and also making it a good place to journey to other cities in Taiwan from. If youre arriving by train wed recommend taking a taxi to the hostel, as Taichungs roads can be confusing for visitors. It should only take 5 minutes and cost around NT$100.
We will help you make the most of your trip to Taichung, and can help with directions around the city or help you to plan day trips and activities. We can also provide street maps, and suggest the best places to go to eat and shop, Asian and Western.
There is no curfew, but please note that check-in is between 9.00am and 11.00pm. If you want to change your check-in time PLEASE call us at least the day before you arrive. If you do not arrive within 2 hours of the agreed check-in time we will assume you are not coming and you might lose your bed.
We look forward to seeing you!
