Corner Backpacker

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

Corner Backpacker hostel is located within walking distance of many of Taichungs best tourist and shopping attractions. It is within easy walking distance of the National Museum of Natural Science and the National Botanical Gardens. The National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts is also not too far - a huge, and free, art gallery with constantly changing exhibitions.

For shopping most of the major department stores and shopping centres are either walking distance from the hostel, or an easy bus ride away. The bars, clubs and restaurants of the Canal District and Little Europe are also very close by, about 10-15minutes walking distance. There are bus stops 2 minutes from the hostel, so getting to Donghai University and Art Street is quick and easy.

This is a small, cozy hostel. We have a 6-bed male dorm, 6-bed female dorm, and a group room that can take up to 6 people. Each of the rooms has air conditioning and electric fans, hair dryers and kettles, and all bathrooms have free shower gel and shampoo. Each of the rooms also has wi-fi internet access. There is a small lobby with TV, and also a few bicycles and scooter for rent.

There is a also a large private double room with its own bathroom. This room has its own TV, fridge, hairdryer, fluffy towels, kettle with coffee and tea, bottled water and a sunny balcony. Its been beautifully decorated and is perfect for couples, although single travelers have also enjoyed it!

There is an excellent food market next to the hostel with many stalls and restaurants serving various delicious Taiwanese snacks and meals, as well as lots of tea vendors. Also most of Taichungs night markets are easy to get to from here.

There are bus stops 2 minutes from the hostel, so most buses coming into Taichung will pass this way making it convenient to get here and also making it a good place to journey to other cities in Taiwan from. If youre arriving by train wed recommend taking a taxi to the hostel, as Taichungs roads can be confusing for visitors. It should only take 5 minutes and cost around NT$100.

We will help you make the most of your trip to Taichung, and can help with directions around the city or help you to plan day trips and activities. We can also provide street maps, and suggest the best places to go to eat and shop, Asian and Western.

There is no curfew, but please note that check-in is between 9.00am and 11.00pm. If you want to change your check-in time PLEASE call us at least the day before you arrive. If you do not arrive within 2 hours of the agreed check-in time we will assume you are not coming and you might lose your bed.

We look forward to seeing you!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

it can be quite hard to find the place at first, but in fact its right at the "corner" (end of the street)
jessie is also very helpful when checking in, she provided a self drawn map which is simple to understands n she also gives verbal info around taichung. (where to visit and see in taichung)
Taichung is a really beautiful place and why not stay at CBP ")

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights. It was very clean and I got the dorm mostly to myself because I was the only person there for all three nights with the exception of one guest one of the nights. It was clean, the hand drawn neighbourhood map was accurate and amazingly detailed with everything you could possibly need nearby which was really handy because the hostel owner (the only staff member I think) was rarely around. I would recommend this cute hostel for stays during peak season or with family/friends. The only thing I wish they had was some kind of lounge for all of the hostellers from different rooms to interact.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I think this is a good place to stay.

City bus was very crowded, so I was tired to get it.
I regret not to catch taxi.

Bathroom is very clean. Bed's springs are not good.
The room is slightly noisy because of cars.
But I didn't feel bad.

I was given a water-bottle and a map by a staff when I check-in.

There is 7-11 near the guest house, I bought something to eat and drink.
My stay was so good.
