    Great little surfer hostel in the middle of a small village in Wai'ao that backs up onto the beach. Candy and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful.

    My two friends and I stayed at Rising Sun over the weekend and we can't wait to return!! The atmosphere is so kind, friendly, and relaxed. The staff is willing to help with anything, whether it's travel recommendations or helping us practice our Chinese.

    If you want to surf and live by the beach affordably this is worth leaving Taipei for. The owner Candy and the rest of the staff are really chill. Before coming I saw reviews that there's not much food here but there's a nice pizza place across the street and the nearby town isn't that far by train as long as you catch the train that comes ever 20 minutes. Lots of bugs as you would expect outside of the city. Too bad I heard they're not renewing their lease after July :( but check anyway!

    Very Good

    05 Apr 2018
    Pros: Beach is great, across from train station. I heard surfing lessons and equipment is great and well-priced. Comfy common room with cards/games. Cons: No ATM or 7-11 anywhere close. Lack of food, need to rely on hostel's mediocre western food or other relatively expensive touristy food unless you want fried rice or bring your own stuff. Certain rooms lack windows and get very muggy. Elderly neighbors, so must be very quiet after dark (or certain staff will get cranky).
