The best host ever!”
Jenny is just perfect! She makes you feel so welcome and has a lot of tipps for you. She explains everything really well, even where you can find the reading light at your bed. The bus stop is right in front of the hostel. Just note: it's not an official stop for some routes (like the one from Taipei) but the bus will stop there anyway. If I ever get back to Jioufen I will definitely stay here again!
Home away from home ”
The place and the view are so beautiful. Wish I could have stayed there for a long time. This is highly recommended for someone who wants some peace and quiet. Jenny and her assistant were very accommodating and will tell you all the recommended places as well as the direction on how to get there. You will feel like a local when you do DIY tours and the hostel feels like home. Highly recommended and will definitely go back :)
The host is so friendly”
The stairs to go up the hostel is kinda messy (The hostel is on the 3rd floor) but everything up there is great. Jenny - the host is a sweet and thoughtful lady. She gave me a lot of useful information to get around the neighborhood. I really enjoyed staying there.
Story Inn is one big room, split by curtains into six four bed sections. There’s aircon, but it’s not enough to keep the space cool. Only one male toilet, and the floor is always wet as the same cubicle is also a shower. WiFi is patchy. Twice a helpful Taiwanese women called the hostel to ask for directions in Chinese, but the male staff couldn’t give directions from the top of Old Street... When I found the place around 9pm (an hour ahead of the arrival time on my booking) I was abused in fluent English by the male Chinese staff as to why I arrive so late, he wanted to go out. I asked why he couldn’t give directions when called, the answer was “ that’s your problem, not mine” The verbal abuse stepped up a notch and he started shouting and accused me of being rude and disrespectful because I gave him my credit card with one hand. He said he will refuse my booking unless I say sorry and hand him my card with two hands.. Give this place a miss
Superb!!! Will choose here again! ”
It was an incredible stay. The best part of the stay were the Hosts - the owner Jenny (pretty mommy) and his son James! Both of them are extremely nice people. Super friendly. They made everyone feel like home. Jenny will suggest nearby attractions for you to visit and provide detail guidance to & fro the attractions. The view from the hostel balcony was excellent, with mountainous view and the YinYang sea- breathtakingly. Hygiene: Tip Top! There’s shoe rack at entrance and everyone will change into slippers prepared by them before entering the property. Place is very clean. Cleanliness: they vacuumed the entire property daily. Bathroom and toilet: washed daily too. Laundry- available washing machine and dryer. Food: daily breakfast. Location: right smack in front of bus stop, and next to police station. Sitting and relaxing at balcony, is therapeutic . An excellent place for city dwellers with hectic lifestyle- to unwind and be recharged. Will sure choose here again.
More than 5-star! Superb! ”

Great hostel in a good location, right by the bus stop and close to the Main Street. Staff were amazing and helped us get around. Many travelers and nice breakfast for free. The only bad thing and for me it really ruined is that the hostel was very cold, they didn’t put any heating on and it was cold and rainy outside. Couldn’t sleep so good.
Amazing place ”
This hostel is amazing mainly because of wonderful owner mrs Jenny who takes care of all guests as they are they own family. I felt there like at home and I wish I could stay there longer than only 4 days. There are very good facilities (kithen, fridge, hair dryer, loundry, water machine, towel, lockers, breakfast - everything what backpacker need). Very good location also, just in front of the bus stop with beautiful view of the ocean. I would recommend it everyone. You will love this place!
I was first very welcomed by the host, Jenny. She was really friendly and helpful that she provided all sorts of informations we needed to get around. We also do wake up with a simple breakfast and a hearty view. Location is very convenient just right outside the bus stop. Although everything was fine, improvement is needed as the toilet was quite wet and it do smells. If you need a stay in Jiufen, this place is for you. Btw, I made friends from HK and Japan here! :)
Excellent location right at the entrance to jiufen market. We arrived at night and the host is worried that we might not have our dinner and recommended us places for some light food that was still available. Before we left she also recommended places for us to go.
Excellent hostel except theft & sexual harassment”
Pros: - The most comfy bedding sets I’ve ever had in a hostel. I slept like a baby when I was there. - The owner was super nice and caring. -Convenient location to Jiufen Old Street; right next to a bus stop Cons: - There was a thief who stole two guys’ money when I was there. The lockers were not safe (the thief opened one of the guys’ locker and stole the money inside). - The staff member was super nice too, except one night he had a lot of unwanted physical contact with me and jokingly asked me if I wanted to warm his bed. I wish I confronted him directly but all I did was to move away from sitting right next to him.
Excellent place with a view & friendly host”
The view from the hostel is amazing and is situated right before the old town of Jiufen. The place was clean and the host and staff were really friendly and helpful, especially in recommending places and also giving us details on the bus & train schedules. Fully recommend this place and will come back to stay.
Everything was nearly perfect”
Initially booked for 3D2N, ended up with extended stay of one whole week. Felt like home and the hostess Jenny was the most friendly and kind owner I’ve met in Taiwan. The owner is active in giving suggestions to the guests the moment they go through the check-in process. She’s also quick in responding to problems that you encounter. Will definitely come back for longer stay.
Jenny helped us a lot with what to do in juifen. Great advise and I only booked for a day and was late but she still gave me free accommodation the following day. Really great experience and also got free hot mochi end of the night .
Jenny was the best host I've had in Taiwan. Super nice and informative. The hostel was great! Comfy beds, nice breakfast, the best view! Super close bus stop also. 100% should stay!
JENNY IS A GEM”
I cannot recommend this place enough. Jenny is the sweetest, most hard working person I know. She has created a home for her guests to relax and feel comfortable to share their stories with each other. I had three full days planned, but ended up staying in for one of those days because I just loved hanging out and chatting with Jenny and the other guests so much. The facilities are so clean and inviting and Jenny is so helpful with travel directions. If you're looking for some place that's more than just a place to sleep, but a place to meet kind warm hearted people, then this is the place for you. Thank you for everything Jenny <3
Better than expexted”
The place is at great location, just next to the Jiufen Police Station bus stop, having a sea view from balcony, and nice design for dorm room. The owner and her staff were very friendly and helpful, made my stay very enjoyable. Thank you Jenny and David!
Great location, great host and very clean!”
Very near to jiufen old street. Right in front of the bus stop, easy access to other places with bus. Property is very clean. Host, a very nice lady who is friendly and helpful. Would stay here again for next visit.
Great location and hospitality”
The location is just nice with a bus station in front of it. The owner and staff are friendly and gave a lot of suggestions for the interesting places. Nice experience here to meet some nice people and have a great chit chat, we even went to visit some venues together.
Relaxing place with great view of jiu fen from the hostel's balcony”
Staff are quite talkative and love to share. The location is right infront of the police station bus stop and easily access to the Golden Museum. The dorm is at 3rd floor and have to go up by staircase. Very nice view at the balcony and spacious for activity. They do have music band at the 2nd floor every weekend.
