¡@¡½ The origins of Youth Hostel
Around 100 years ago, Richard Schirrmann, a German principle, said, Education does not happen only inside the school. Through field trips, to keep students away from the protections of parents and develop his own ability being independent. And also get in touch with the nature, study different cultures and traditions. All of them are also important element of education. For people with limited budget to be able to travel to other places and have some adventures, there came the first Youth Hostel in the world in 1909. Then, it became International Youth Hostel Federation at 1932  (IYHF).
Unlike hotel, there's no restaurant and SPA, youth hostel is pretty simple. They only provide accommodation. Except bed and blanket, everything else should be brought by the travelers. So the low price is affordable for everyone. Now you can explore to see the world and open your eyes!!
¡@¡½ Development of Taipei  House
In 1987, it was the first time for me to travel abroad to HK. A couple days before I took off, I was swamped in anxiety, worry, uneasiness, and eagerness to explore. This lasted for a while until I landed in HK. While walking on the street and feeling nervous, I could not calm myself down until the second day at Youth Hostel. It was the warmth originating from my fellow citizens who happen to be there that comforts me. In the summer of 2001, due to God's blessing, Taipei House I.Y.H. was established. I appreciate God for giving me the opportunity to make quite a few foreign friends.
Later on in my experience in I.Y.H., through offering and helping others, I felt the accomplishment and joy in the emails and message log as if they were reflection in the mirror. It is unexpected for the visitors to realize that people in Taipei and Taiwan are more than willing to help out. Not to mention words from my colleagues-This work is for the sake of building the image of the nation.
I have always dreamt of one day that after visiting Taiwan, foreigners will hold a good impression toward this country. Starting from I.Y.H, they not only had a chance to appreciate scenic and culture beauty in Taiwan but also to see the hospitality of Taiwanese; Let's promote Taiwan and make us visible.
