Dorm1828 is like a home away from home. The staffs have made a warm place for people from around the world and Taiwan to meet. They are quietly friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about things to see and do around Tainan and Taiwan. Dorm1828 also has connections with the Taiwan arts scene, and is a good place to meet interesting and creative people. In fact, more than one artist has left their mark on the guest house.
There is a large kitchen, common area, comfy reading room, and enclosed garden to relax in. The dorm-rooms have comfortable beds, high-quality bed-sheets, reading lights, and many power points. A lot of thought has gone into this guest house. Its very clean, with plenty of toilets, showers, hot-water, soap, shampoo, hair-dryers, and even toothpaste if you get caught short. Dorm1828 must be one of the best equipped guest houses in Taiwan, and has a great location in the university area, 15 minutes easy walk from the train tation. Its close to eating places, 7/11, supermarket, and an outdoor shop.
Planning to go on one of the great hikes in Taiwan isn’t so easy for non-mandarin speakers, but the staff at Dorm1828 can organise hiking permits, provide route-plans, and advise on transport and accommodation options to and from the hike. Its the place to go to start your hike. This guest house is a very nice stay. The worst thing about Dorm1828 is leaving.
