  • Description


    Here we welcome travelers from not only Taiwan but also from all over the world to experience Taiwan in a different whole new way during your stay. We are very friendly people yet open minded so it would be fun to have travelers joining our team. It is a great opportunity for those who wish to experience the local life, and also to have interaction with many other friendly, interesting travelers from around the world here.

    Our hostel is conveniently located close to the transport hub with the main Taichung train and bus stations, where you can practically travel to any west coast cities and be back within the same day, like Sun Moon Lake and Lugang Mazu Temple. This will leave you plenty of time to explore and visit many more cities during your stay.

    Taichung is located in the center of west coast. There are a wide variety of places where you can go sightseeing. If you prefer historical sites, you may wish to rediscover the old Taichung, or you can head to Taichung Park (built in 1903), Miyahara Eye Hospital (built in 1927), Jiguang shopping street (built in the 60s), Zhonghua Night market (the oldest in Taichung). However, on the other hand, If you prefer something modern, you may wish to visit the new Taichung, Rainbow Village, National Taichung Theater, Wan-ping park and Park Lane by CMP. Moreover, if you prefer nature, you may wish to visit Taichung County Gaomei Wetlands Wildlife Refuge, Wuling Farm and Bald Cypress. Finally, If none of the above is of interest to you, there are always mouth-watering (and very yummy!) traditional food available at the Tunghai night market, Feng Chia Night Market, traditional morning market and sunset market for your tummy to enjoy...
