Where to Stay in Taiwan

Youth Hostels

Youth hostels are the cheapest short-term accommodations available. A typical hostel room sleeps three to nine people, and all of these guests share a bathroom. Prices average US$15-20 per night and many hostels offer discounts for stays of a week or more.

For those who don’t require privacy, hostels can be a lot of fun. They are usually full of young people and are good places to gather the latest information on teaching, night spots, and cheap housing. Do visit the Taiwan Youth Hostel Association Facebook page for a lot of good and up-to-date information.
