Staying at the hostel was a really great experience! The staff were very kind and welcoming. Whenever you had questions they were there to help and we also spend evenings cooking and eating together. The work was doable and the working hours depended on how much work and how many volunteers there were. Most off the days it was just a little over 2 hours of work. Beituo, although it is a bit far from the city center, is a lovely neighborhood and well connected to the MRT. Overall it was a wonderful stay and the staff and volunteers I met were all great people and I would love to return one day:)

In the beginning I got to Taipei just waiting until I can go back to Korea and expected nothing big from my time here but this experienced proved me wrong.the hostel staff and other volunteers welcomed me so warmly,immediately making me feel welcome and at ease.When I got sick they cared for me with such love that I never felt homesick. With time they made me appreciate Taiwan and what an amazing country it is and I'm saddened to leave such an amazing place behind,but I will definitely be back to Taiwan,the most friendly and beautiful country I was able to travel to! Thanks everyone!!❤

I had a wonderful time at the hostel. All of the staff are so kind and welcoming, you feel like you're part of the team from day 1. We even celebrated the holidays together. The work is very straightforward housekeeping and cleaning work (about 15 hours a week). But I never got bored of it still and it was always fun working. The location of the hostel is optimal. Beitou alone has so many beautiful gems to offer, and central Taipei is only about 40 minutes away. I couldn't have asked for a better time. I will definitely cherish this experience and all the great people I got to meet.
