    We are a hostel located right in the city centre of Taipei, runned by a young team of multi-nations.

    The building itself was formally a 40-year-old hotel that accomodates workers who left their hometown came looking for opportunities in the thriving capital Taipei, and now it is transformed into our hostel, continue to host guests from all over the world.

    We are close to MRT ZhongShan Station, which is a meeting point of two metro lines, so from here you could get around the vast Taipei city quite easily.
