“AWESOME PLACE TO STAY!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Yes this is a little out of the city, but Tam sui has such a great carnival atmosphere its on the river and we spent six days here and only went into the city once. Fell in love with it and will be coming back. Alex and Andy couldn't be more helpfull and the room had everything we needed including a great price.

Room Tip: We had a room away from railway line so didnt hear a thing.

This is at the end of the red line, 35 mins from Taipei main station, and 200m from the last station so make sure to print their map. You dont have the panorama view from their pictures on hostelbookers as you are on a lower floor overlooking the subway tracks and the station but can still see the view in the horizon. There are balcony rooms on the two floors above but I didnt have those rooms. The owner is very friendly , speaks good english, will explain local sights and give you maps. The room was large with a comfy bed, extra blankets/towels, pillows, A/C, all toiletries. Good tv package. Shower had lots of hot water that doesnt run out so nice long showers and good water pressure. Lots of food in the metro station, old street, or restaurants around the station. This was a much more relaxing area to stay if you dont want all the hustle of the city centre. Its worth spending a day here if you want to explore something outside of the normal sights in the city centre. There is the old street, temples, fort and colonial buildings, shell oil warehouses. You can also take bus 1262 for just over an hour to Yehliu Geopark to see the Queens head and other natural rock formations. Their website shows different locations with a swimming pool so you might want to inquire about that. Internet was quite slow but they have wifi also.

Room Tip: Ocean Balcony view room
