“Affordable, Clean and Friendly”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Friendly Host Vincent, handed me a map of the area and showed me how to get to the City God Temple and Night Market nearby. There were plates of steaming noodles, a local specialty, oyster omelettes sizzling on steel griddles, skewers of tofu, and bowls of beautiful plump pork and vegetable dumplings stacked above steaming water. Yum! Incense from the temple floats around the market mixing with the food smells. It's a total experience. I followed Vincent's map to the puppet store and bought a small, angry looking monkey-God hand-puppet after looking over the enormous collection of beautifully dressed puppets. Taiwan is the land of stage quality puppets. All of this before returning to Eastdoor hostel for a night's sleep. Tomorrow I'll go to the old port of Nan Liao, and ride the 17 km coastal trail down to the wind power windmills that dot the southern beaches of Hsinchu. I need a good rest, and someone's practicing drums down below, but I watch a little streaming TV on my laptop and by 10:00 it's quiet. Eastdoor doesn't have a bar or restaurant, not even a fridge, but it's just above a 24-hour convenience store that has an ATM, so coffee in the morning's no problem. I only stayed one night here, but Vincent was great, dorms were roomy and clean, bathrooms were basic, I didn't see any insects or serious dirt. Nice group of fellow travelers and the price was right too. Nice place

Room Tip: 3 dorms: 1 with AC and 2 with fans; and 1 or 2 'couple' rooms both with AC. Bunks or beds...

I was at Hsinchu with a friend for a day, and we thought we'd spend the night there. We checked in with Eastdoor hostel. Location-wise, it is situated 25minutes away from the city area, on a stretch where the ktvs, tattoo parlours and music stores are located. But we were assured by a lady who owns a salon next to the hostel that this area is safe.

The owner himself owns a jamming studio below the hostel and holds music lessons every night so do be prepared for really loud noises.

Honestly, Hsinchu is a small place so there wasn't much to see, other than say the glass museum.

And the hostel was more like a sideline for the owner, since his priority is definitely his music business. Apparently, there were more students on the day we went, so the room next to ours was also used for drumming lessons. We couldn't take the noise so we left for Taipei without spending the night there. If you have a low tolerance for noise like we do, do think twice about staying at this hostel.
