Welcome to our hostel

Founded in 1960, Jinshan Youth Activity Center is the first activity centre established by China Youth Corps. Situated at the mid-point of the northern coast of Taiwan, this hostel offers natural views of the sunny beach and woods. You can enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities on the beach, in the woods, as well as on the campsites.

The hostel consists of a campground accommodating 1,500 people, a barbecue field for 800 people, dining services for 700 people, meeting rooms, a performance studio, paint ball shooting ground and adventure education fields. With these great features, this centre has been not only one of the most popular scenic destinations, but also a first-rate facility for recreational and educational training purposes in Northern Taiwan.

Another special feature of this hostel is the biggest hot spring gym in South East Asia. Inducted from Dutunshan, the spring water contains acid sulphate chloride, which is said to be good for your health. The gym is divided into outdoor pools and an indoor gym and consists of a rehabilitation pool, bubble pool, vertex pool and infrared pool, providing you effective hydrotherapy. The food court on the 1st floor offers local delicacies to wrap up your perfect spa tour. The hostel is also nearby the famous Jinshan Old Street and Jinshan Eight Wonders.

I stayed here for two nights. Both nights were very pleasant. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is located about 10 minutes from town, and right next to the tourist center and a national park. I really enjoyed my stay here. The room was clean and spacious, and I felt very safe. I would definitely stay there again.
