    It takes only 5 mins by walk from/to Taichung Train Station in where most of the city buses pass by. Many local bus stop's are very conveniant; less than a minute walk from the hostel. With the Taichung government's policy, you can ride the bus for free within 10 km (with use of an EASY Card), which makes it easy and free to explore the city. The station of intercity bus is just next to the train station as well. Three hours bus to other cities in Taiwan such as Taipei & Tainan. 7/11's are in range for food/beverages/atm transactions. Our hostel also provides in-depth travel plans for many sightseeing oppurtunties (Sun Moon Lake/Rainbow Village/multiple Night markets, Etc).
