Taiwan Hostel Established in 1985 for the adventurous travelers. Although Taiwan is not as wild, rough, and "anything goes" it still is one of the friendliest, most interesting, hospitable, and semi-wild countries you'll ever encounter! I'm sure you'll still stumble upon those wild places we all did decades ago. In many ways Taiwan is more appealing today to the majority of visitors because of all its modern amenities but I sure miss getting off the city buses due to horrific traffic and I could walk 3 miles and get there an hour before the bus would arrive! Signed Taiwan's best American friend who quit work for a planned 6 months backpack tour but loved it so much I stayed for 15 years! Hopefully you'll have the same wonderful times in Taiwan I and others did! You'll also find you can easily teach English in Taiwan, either in a Bushi Ban or you'll meet someone on the streets who'll want to learn.
