This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It is about 10 -15min walk from train station. Still consider convenient but as it is located in rear station and the bus station is located at front station, you will need to present railway ticket or pay 6 dollar to cross over to bus station as the underground is property of railway company. If you are backpacker and not signing up for tour package with pickup, you can get to bus station board a local bus to town or cisingtan, taroko etc.

Overall, hostel is trendy and clean. Provide a homely feel as you are given keys to lock the door if out.
