The hotel is very close to the bus station. If you take bus just get off at police station. You will see the hotel opposite site. Hotel room is very nice and clean. The bath tub is too big and nice view. The decorations are very nice! Breakfast place is at 8fl with a mountain view. So perfect!

Wow. Just wow.”

Friendly reception, great room furnishing and toiletries, near the village centre (not the one with the bus station)

I really liked the look and feel of the hostel. Basically 2 rooms per floor, one opposite the other (non-connecting). Room view of lake was nice to have, bathroom was great, albeit dim. In-room wifi worked well. Reception got me a ride to Alishan via taxi at fixed cost. Overall, not the best place to stay in Sun Moon Lake as it is on the quieter side of the lake but the hostel really makes up for it. Loved the place.

The most wonderful hostel during my trip”

I stayed here during my biking trip in Taiwan and I was amazed by the quality and warmth of this hostel. This hostel is conveniently located at sun-moon lake, a beautiful highland lake in central Taiwan. The room is big, cozy and very clean with everything you would need for a stay. The breakfast is wonderful and delicious with warm coffee and tea, simply great value for money. Wholeheartedly recommended.

Absolutely wonderful”

The owners went above and beyond the necessary measures to help us find where to eat, where to hike, and how to get around

Our stay was, as titled, absolutely wonderful. Breakfast was served from about 6:30 AM until 9 AM every day and was quite tasty, as well as different on each morning. The beds and pillows were so comfortable that I ended up buying a pillow to take back home! Additionally, the owners went above and beyond to help us find where to eat, where to hike, and how to get around. When we were leaving, they gave us a ride to the other side of the island so that we could catch our bus! The only thing you should know is that, while they will try their best to accommodate English speakers, their English is a little bit limited. However, if you're looking for a comfortable, reasonably-priced, and convenient place to stay while at Sun Moon lake, look no further!

Very unique”

The decor is its best attraction. Room is VERY spacious the slates on the walls and in the bathroom are stunning! It's a bit of a walk from the Ita Thao harbor, but you still have a good view of the lake. The breakfast plate is fantastic, and a nice break from most other heavily flavored street foods in Taiwan -- if you know what I mean.
