ps..very important--We are now moving to Taitung ( the east side of Taiwan).
Hello, we are Jim and Cindy. We have two young boys. They are 14 and 12 years old. Our family loves to share everything with you. We would like to make friends from everywhere.
After walking around Taiwan for 26 days, Jim created this hostel to make friends from everywhere. Jim is also a carpenter, all of the wood area is made by him.
Our hostel is located near Taitung train station. Our place is a dormitory. We hope to promote language learning and culture exchange in the Taitung area. We have a 4-story building, with about 28 bunk beds, toilets and shower rooms.
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
You may be able to learn Chinese.
We can give you some travel information.
Just enjoy our hostel and make friends from everywhere.
We hope that you can help us with our cultural and language activites, including language corner.
"The most important thing to stay at our hostel is to spend time with our kids." After their school time, you can teach our kids some words and converse with them. We would like to have an English environment in our space.
If you know how to speak Japanese, you are also very welcome to come to our hostel, because Jim likes to travel to Japan, and he wants to learn some Japanese.
Since we are running a hostel, we need your help with cleaning, especially Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Therefore, if you plan to stay with us, please reserve your weekend for us. You can travel and hang out with your new friends in Taiwan during the week.
We don't provide three meals for you, but if we cook, maybe we can eat together. You can also drink 1 cup of coffee for free everyday at our cafe.
Just because our hostel is not big, only one volunteer to help us is OK. If you are couples and want to join us, we have to sorry to refuse you.
