Perfection!”

Our room has the lake view and it is such a refreshing, calming experience to wake up in such a great view everyday. The room has a simple and neat design but has all the things that you need (except for a phone, to contact the reception you need to add them in LINE). The bathroom/washroom is located at the side of the room with an open space, therefore it's a little disadvantage if it gets really cold at night coz u have to wear your coats/jacket when u brush teeth or use the toilet. But everything about the lakehouse is just pure relaxing. 😉 Breakfast is the same everyday, on a plate you will have egg, apple and oranges, small ham and sausage, 4 toasts and nachos (so yummy nachos). You will get to choose between coffee, hot lemon juice (this one's nice), or black tea. The staff is nice and helpful. We were oriented about the place on our first day so our stay was smooth and great. I will definitely stay here again when I come back with friends. 😊

Exceptional”

Pros: Located about 2-300m from the Shui She Visitors’ Centre in a quiet place near the lake, free parking for guests with designated parking lots, water dispenser machine conveniently located along the corridor so we could top up all of our bottles for the road trip, shower and room were quite spacious and are well maintained; breakfast was hearty (it is a standard American style breakfast); front desk staff is friendly! Cons: No big cons, boardwalk to the room is not very even as it is made of wooden planks, would not advise you to carry very bulky/heavy luggage. Overall we enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend this place to others!

I’m satisfied! ”

I first reserved a dorm bed, then asked for possibility to change to a private double room the day of arrival, they tried their best to help and I finally got a very nice, clean and cute place to stay where I could comfortably spend time in during the rainy visit. The location is not exactly at the centre but close enough to get around on foot within 10 mins. I really appreciate its friendly atmosphere as a hostel for young backpackers AND as a resort style vacation house for families, really worth the price and will stay there again! Thank you so much!

Comfortable room, good services.”

We had 3 people in the quadruple bedroom and found it pretty nice. The room might be too narrow for 4 people though (not because the beds are small but rather the space to open the luggages). The room is clean, and the beds are soft. The shared bathroom and living room are beautiful. The services are really good; there are staff who can speak English and would not hesitate to help anytime you need help with translating things to English.

Lovely Place”

cute little hostel. I was in female dorm and very quiet during the week. Easy walk to the lake and a good hiking trail next door to weather station which has great views. Liked being a little out of the main town as much quieter, though still close. Staff very friendly and have cheap tickets for the boat and bike rental. Highly recommend. Only negative is the metal bunk beds are really noisy be great f they changed them to something more solid. Barely slept on Saturday when the dorm was full.

Really nice hostel with great staff and convenient facilities for their dorm rooms. Only complaint is the bed is a little hard, as the mattress seems like it's a little old, but this is par for the course in Asia (hard beds, that is). Overall I would highly recommend, especially if you can stay off season (I travelled during a long weekend in Taiwan, so the prices were a little above normal for hostel accommodation in this neck of the woods.)
