Location! Location! Location! Our hostel is a stone\'s throw away from MRT station. Yet we found some guests might pass by our hostel and ask for clear signage outside. We apologize we have to keep low profile just as other hostels do because of the biased local hospitality regulations toward hostel lodging in Taiwan. Luckily most our guests acclaim that getting to our hostel is a piece of cake as long as they follow the instructions and map below.
