    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    For those who are interested in learning or practicing Chinese and making local friends, this is an excellent opportunity since we have many customers from Taiwan and China, as well as the owner and other staffs. Our hostel is also in a great location for those who want to discover Taipei City and its fabulous night life.

    Taipei City has many riverside park bike routes nearby, also surrounded by mountains which is easy to plan for a day hiking tour, and the famous Yangmingshan National Park. A wide variety of activities and adventure awaits you!

    Also there are lots of famous sightseeing spots around us as well, like Gongguan Night Market, Treasure Hill Artist Village, The Wall Music live house, Wulai hot springs, Taipei 101.

    Work hard play hard, you can just enjoy life here by working sometimes with us!

    We especially need a open-minded person to help us with the housekeeping work!

    And it would be a plus if you own certain skills like painting, photography, film making, designer, writer, or even other special skills to share with us :)

    We are also looking for the people who could organize parties or activities for our hostel! No hesitate to share your project with us!

    We don't need you to be professional for any above but cooperative and hard working during the working time :)
