Went for the public bath over the private bath. The public bath is Japanese style with 3 pools: one hot, one cold, one with jets for massages. Also have shower jet area and dry sauna. All for the price of 200TWD where basic soap and shampoo is provided. Eating at the restaurant can give you free passes into the either the public or private baths for every 400TWD spent. So there is good value in eating a meal and having a bath. The food is rather nice with enough variety. It can be very crowded though, with there being queues inside the baths to use the showers. Location wise: it is not within walking distance from XinBeitou. I would recommend taking a cab up. However, on the way down, there will likely not be any cabs and the bus would be your main option to get back to a train station. Theme: Very nice, rustic and authentic feel. Good for photo taking. Overall: very good value, but not luxurious. Enjoyable, especially for those on a budget. Just be prepared that transport is not the most convenient as compared to places near XinBeitou.

An enjoyable experience in a classic setting. Clean and free entrance fee to hot spring bath when you dine in the restaurant. Serve good Taiwanese food.

Kawayu is a Japanese style Onsen in Xinhua Road Hot Spring area. It is a little bit far, but there is a public bus from MRT Shibei station. Unlike Beitou, it is not crowded and I didn’t see any tourist. That’s good. There are two bathing pools outdoors, but both are quite hot. For me, “warm” bath was still hot.

It took about 45 min to get to the hot springs from Ximen Station, I had to change once from metro to 508 bus. Admission to hot springs costs 200 NTD, and you need two 10 NTD coins to use a locker (non refundable). Try to bring your own towel, but you can also purchase one at the entrance. You can only pay by cash. If you spend over 400 NTD (plus 10% table charge) per person in the adjoining restaurant, you can use the bath for free. The hot spring was a bit busy on a winter Sunday night. When you enter the bath first you get naked, take a shower (shower gel and shampoo provided, but nothing fancy) then you can soak in radium or sulphur baths (no time limitations). There is also a cold bath, which is great for cooling down before continuing the soak in the hot ones. The memorable experience for me was entering the sauna, which at that moment was filled with thick steam that obscured ALL vision and made me struggle to find a seat for a while (I was scared to burn myself on something I could not see). Still, I had a great time. There are some hair dryers next to the lockers. They gave me a shower cap at the entrance, which was useful since the bath is partially outside and it was raining. I wish I could give a 5 star rating here, since it was a great experience, but I found that the amenities were not good enough and the toilets were smelly, so I can't give more than 4 stars.

Went with kids and my dad. Good Japan-like experience with semi-open air pools (always a favorite). Three pools of varying levels of heat + icy plunge. Massage beams. Steam bath is nice too. Go mid-morning to avoid crowding. Stunning value if you redeem the entrance ticket in the lunch place just next door—food is quite good.
