    AMAZING PLACE! Amy and Ann are so kind and welcoming. They give you so much information and advice and are incredibly knowledgable about the whole area. They also cook THE BEST hostel breakfast I've ever had with something different everyday and even accommodating to my vegetarian needs. Beds were super comfortable, the view from the glass house is stunning, and the location is perfect! (And you might even get a good workout in with all the stairs)

    One of the best hostels I have stayed in! Amy and Ann make sure to help give you a homey and local experience in their amazing hostel. They cook a delicious Taiwanese breakfast, have awesome recommendations, and are extremely proactive about communicating the best ways to get to Jiufen and the hostel itself. If I ever come back to Jiufen, I will certainly be returning to First Stop :)

    Extremely clean, quaint, and nice hostel. The hosts were phenomenal. Right when we got there they sat us down explained the area to us and directed us to spots that would make for the best experience. HIGHLY recommend staying a night in Jiufen and particularly at this hostel. :)

    The hostel is a bit of a hike away from the main roads. You encounter quite a few steps, so if you're not in shape, it may be difficult to navigate with luggage. The view makes up for it, as well as the owners, who are very helpful. The hostel is situated in the hill, and this provides a quiet atmosphere, surrounded by nature and a gorgeous view overlooking the bay area. We didn't get to experience a sunset, but I'm positive it would be amazing. Breakfast and the glasshouse were my favorites. :)

    Comfortable bed and the people who work here are extremely nice. It can be a journey if you have a lot of luggage because it’s downhill with quite a bit of steps. The view from the glass room while eating the homemade delicious breakfast is what makes staying here a treat.

    Extremely well-designed place (everything from the rooms to the main common area, with its 'treetop' inside and so many seating options)..The dorm rooms are so nice they almost feel like you have your own private room and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Downsides; size - it s a big place so a little difficult to meet people. Also, they don't sell coffee which is odd because they sell everything else including craft beer. Overall - recommended.
