The space

This was an old residence built in 1972 and was recently transformed into a 1970s style Taiwanese guesthouse. There are a wide variety of rooms to fit different budgets: shared bath, private rooms or suites, or hostel type arrangement.

Want to fix a snack, warm up take-outs or showing off your culinary talents in a full kitchen? Wireless or wired, no time to waste or taking it easy. This big house can take good care of you.

It is the only guesthouse on this quiet street, with a shady walkway leading to an old fort wall ruin and South Gate. A block away from the old town street with lots of eateries and shops. Enjoy the quiet evening with a neighboring church and local residences.

Located in the heart of old Heng Chun town, 2 blocks away from the main Heng Chun transit station where you catch an express bus to the high speed rail and other major train stations. Hire a taxi or rent a motorcycle (the most popular form of transportation) near the transit station. Don't forget the helmet!

Furnished with wood furniture from Chiang Kai-Shek's martial law era, artwork from South East Asia, the guesthouse gives you an authentic experience to 1970s Taiwan.

The only BnB in town that has a large courtyard and a roof top viewing deck. BBQ with the host in the yard, have morning coffee or afternoon tea on the roof top to see the distant Quan Mountain and sunset. It offers more than a room to spend the night.

Overall a positive experience and would consider staying here again. Didn't mind not having an ensuite bathroom, the cubicles were private and clean enough. Grandma was friendly and helpful. Room was comfortable. White sheets slightly stained but felt hygienic anyway. Bear in mind that cancellation is strict, which means your stay may not be refunded even if there is a typhoon (it happens). Also, we didn't get put in the room that we booked, but the hipster vibe was the same anyway. Be sure to ask to make sure you're going to be put in the room you expect from the photos. Didn't feel like a huge sacrifice though. Gwen was well reachable via phone and helpful when we had questions.

Because of her flawless english and her friendly beeing Gwen was the perfect host for this awesome location; a refurbished hospital. The place is very spacious, clean and original. We felt comfortable there and hope that we will be able to visit again!

I moved from Taiwan to Hawaii at age 14, lived in the US for most of my adult life, interrupted by living a few years in South America and South East Asia. I hope to visit Australia and New Zealand next, since I am so much closer now.

If I have a life motto, that would be "be as open minded as my upbringing and life experience would allow". Oh, love to hear other people's ideas. So talk to me!
