Best 6 Backpacker Hostel in Hsinchu, Taiwan

For most backpackers looking for the best accommodations while tripping in Hsinchu, is there any cheapest choice instead of luxury? Yes, of course! In this article, I’m going to share the best hostels info for you in Hsinchu.

What You Need to Know About Hsinchu

For me, Hsinchu is just a midway station. However, there are some scenic spots around if you are coming out of Hsinchu Railway Station. I suggest you only need to visit Hsinchu city and the zoo behind the train station (Taiwan’s most miniature zoo). After the zoo tour, you can check into the backpacker inn near the railway station.

Some old streets in Hsinchu are good, but you need transportation. Unfortunately, there are not many buses. The only old road worth mentioning is Neiwan, and you can take a train there.

I put some accommodations info below; you can check the hotel info via Google Maps link. In addition, each hostel provides hotel platform links like coupons, or you can get a discount via the links in this article.
