    Great place to stay! The best thing about this hostel is that the women who run it are incredibly helpful and informative, i.e. they will pick you up from the Qidu train station and give you a ride back (with advance notice, of course), and will help you plan your trips around the north coast! It's clean, and the beds are very comfortable. The only downside is that it's not the most convenient location, but it's still walk-able from the Qidu TRA station, and just a 15 minute bus from Keelung.
