The location is absolutely stunning, first of all. But the two running the hostel are some of the nicest and coolest people ive ever met. They speak English well and theyve been so helpful with whats around the area as well as all around Taiwan. They have international power sockets too, which makes it easy to charge right away. And the breakfast was amazing!! I couldve eaten so much!! It was taiwanese breakfast (taiwan pancake, hoon pancake, soup, coffee/tea) and was worth so much. I highly recommend staying here and exploring the area! Or just relax at the beautiful hostel!

Set in a beautiful mountainside location, with a view of the sea and surrounding forest. Ann and Amy are brilliant, practically planning all of my days in Jiufen and cooking diet-specific breakfasts. The local buses and trains are easy and cheap and there are hiking trails just a walk away.
