Really nice hostel and management. No worries about the distance to keelung due to there are buses often


It feels like living with a local family. The two ladies, Amy and Ann are sooo friendly and can help out with everything (food translations in mandarin to experience thr local non-tourist restaurants, transportation,...). They created a lot of tour descriptions to discouver the local, beautyfull area.


Amy and Ann are super helpful lending information on all the things to do in the area. The rooms, common areas, and bathrooms are super clean and well-maintained. The location is a little out of the way, but it's easy to catch a train or bus (both within 5-10 walk) to get where you want to go. Overall, a solid hostel!


This hostel is run by Amy and Ann who are extremely helpful and friendly. They gave me lots of advice on which places to see in the area, how to get there by ublic transport and what is good at the local restaurants and night markets. As I was new to Taiwan and travelling on my own, this was extremely helpful! The hiking trail up to the nearby mountain, passing the Tai'an falls is beautiful and definitely a must see when staying at this hostel.


Very helpful and friendly staff! Gave me lots of tips and travel advice. Would definitely stay at the hostel again!
