Tamsui – Taipei Travelers International Hostel.
Taipei Travelers International Hostel. Located near the statue of Dr. Mackay, close to the boat dock, convenience store down the slope, and Ubike up the slope. However, there are guesthouses and hotels in front of Tamsui Station, so it can be said that it is a little far from Tamsui Station. One of the features is that Christians gather from all over Taiwan to stay because of Taiwan Presbyterian Church Tamsui Church. It just opened in 2017 and is still new and clean. Personally, this is my favorite accommodation in Tamsui.
The view from the roof of the guesthouse at 7am.
Laundry can be dried on the rooftop.
I’ve stayed at this hostel about 4 times, and go up to the roof many times, but I still haven’t met anyone else, and I feel like it’s a private space.
Basically, one locker is allocated for one person by renting a bed.
6 beds but 8 lockers.
Washbasin in shared space. Three dryers. it’s clean enough.
There are two urinals for men in the front, three Western-style toilets in the back left, and two shower rooms in the back right.
The guest rooms are up to the 5th floor, and the 6th floor is a shared space, but I have only met people here once. There are outlets and a counter table, so I used to spend half a day at work here.
There is also a washing machine and dryer here. The washing machine is not coin-operated, so you can use it for free if you bring your own laundry detergent.
First floor lobby and shared space.
Here is also a shared space, and bread and butter, jam are provided for breakfast in every morning. All-you-can-drink coffee all time.
The refrigerator is also here, and you should write your name when you put things in it.
In the back is a space (shelf) where you can leave your luggage, and beyond the door is a Western-style toilet.
Basically, you bake your own bread, and there is peanut butter and strawberry jam on the table, so you can eat it with whatever you like.
Wash the dishes you used in the sink next to the entrance.
When you check-out, remove the pillow cover, duvet cover and put them in a large basket next to the elevator on the first floor.
In Taiwan, there are many guesthouses that have renovated old buildings, and there is still a Chinese feel to them, but that is not the case here.
As far as I see the rooftop, it may be an old building, but it has been properly renovated into a modern design.
It’s clean every time I come, so I think I’ll probably stay here next time too.
As of January 2020,
This time, we rented a room (6 beds) for 11,910 yen per night.
