>Are hostels just for young people?

Hostelling is not just for young people, HI Taiwan welcomes visitors of all ages from all the world.


 

>Where are hostels and how many are there?

HI has nearly 4,000 hostels in over 80 countries worldwide, including more than 38 hostels here in Taiwan. Almost of our hostels are near the city, country, National Scenic Area and National Park.


 

>What does it cost to stay in a hostel?

Individual travelers with HI Card (YH Card) can just pay 20~30 US dollars to stay an overnight in any assured hostels in Taiwan.
Staying at our hostels makes your trip more affordable and allows you to spend your money on other things.


 

>Do I have to be a member to stay at an HI hostel?

HI Taiwan welcomes both members and non-members, but non-members are required to pay a higher overnight rate for each night they stay. To ensure that you always have access and receive lower rates and many other benefits, in Taiwan and around the world, it is highly recommended that you become a member before you travel. Whatever you are Taiwan residence or not, HI-Taiwan can sell you a membership. (See membership section on this site for more information on how to become a member).


 

>Do I have to make a reservation to stay at a hostel?

Reservations are recommended during high travel seasons. A variety of reservation options are available click here.


 

>What does a hostel look like?

Taiwan Hostels are as varied in their looks as in their locations. Some are in modern, multi-story buildings and historic buildings that have been totally renovated. You can stay in a lighthouse on the California coast, a castle in Germany, a 19th century sailing ship in Sweden - just to name a few.


 

>What equipment do I need to go hostelling?

Basically you will need a very small amount of the same stuff you would normally travel with plus a couple of extra items. Then you will need something comfortable and practical to carry it all in. Pack Lightly! Traveling light is fundamental if you are going to have an enjoyable time.


 

>Where do I keep my belongings?

Backpacks containing non-valuable items such as clothes and toiletries are usually left in the sleeping dormitory. Valuables such as cameras, passports and money should always be safeguarded and ideally kept with you at all times. All hostels will have a safe storage area and many larger city hostels will have lockers in the rooms for your backpack. Theft is relatively uncommon in hostels but it would be nice to keep it that way. Either keep valuables with you or place them in the hostel's safekeeping facilities. If you do have something stolen, report it to hostel staff immediately. While hostels (like most other public facilities) are not responsible for lost or stolen items, you will be helping in the effort to catch thieves.


 

>Do hostels have kitchens?

Some of Taiwan hostels do offer self-catering kitchens but some of them do not, it depends on which hostel you stay.


 

>May I make group reservations at any HI Hostel?

Yes, based on availability, all HI hostels can accommodate groups. However, we know from experience that each group is unique and therefore a little extra care and attention may be required when it comes to arranging accommodations and itinerary planning. This is where we can connect you directly with the staff at the destination hostel to ensure that we have all your needs covered.


 

>Are hostels closed during the day?

Most major hostels in Taiwan are open 24 hours a day.
