Liked: The owners, Amy and Ann, are amazing-amazing!! They are so knowledgable about the area (and Taiwan in general!) and they're absolutely willing to advise about what to see and do to make the most out of your trip. The hostel is clean, well-maintained and super comfortable. The atmosphere is friendly, and it's easy to socialize with other guests staying there. We had a wonderful stay at First-Stop, and definitely plan to visit again.

Disliked: The taxi driver struggled a little to find the hostel, although we showed the address Amy and Ann sent. But they spoke with him on the phone, and helped us get there safe and sound. Everything else about our stay was fantastic!

Liked: Anne and Amy are greatly willing to take time to explain about the area. And they were very kind to pick me up after 10 pm at the train station.

Disliked: nothing really to see or do at the train stop where they are at and getting to their hostel on your own would be extremely long and difficult.
