Only stayed here for one night, because of the Taroko national park and it was nice. It is a small hostel wich makes it a good place to meet other travellers. The location is only 5-10 min walk from the trainstation and bus to Taroko park. You will get a map of the area with (really) cheap place to eat.... More

We had only one night at Amigos hostel during our 4 day stay in Taiwan and found the hostel to be clean, in a good location and comfortable. It's literally a 5 min walk from the station and close to places to rent motorbikes, convenience stores and restaurants. The room was small but decent and the beds were comfortable. The... More

Nice location near the train station, nice hostel, modern dorms, clean, good atmosphere. Friendly staff who gave me help to plan a trip to Taroko national park and a suggestion about renting a scooter. I stayed there just 1 night but it was a pleasant staying. Going to hualien was worth, I had a nice trip there

My friends and I stayed 2 nights in this hostel during Chinese New Year. The location is great; about 5 minute walk from the Hualien train station. It's not in the busiest part of town which was nice for a quieter night's sleep. The hostel itself has a very laid-back surfer feel to it. Nice reception and lounge area that... More

This hostel is worth a stay! We didn't have any complaints the whole time we were there. Stayed for 4 nights in the 8 bed dorm, which was kept really clean. Soft mattresses and really good bedding and pillows. The shared showers and toilets are clean and the water pressure is so good! They provide a free breakfast sandwich and... More

My stay at Amigo's was fantastic. It's a 5 minute walk from the train station and the customer service is the best. I stayed here for 4 days and I forgot to pack my towel. Instead of having to go out and buy a new one, the staff was more than willing to lend me one of theirs. Also, if... More

As we approached this hostel we saw the Hostelling International member sign, so we pulled our cards to get our discount, the owner told us "sorry we are not members anymore, but I like the sign". If they are not members they need to take the sign down or honor the discount. Personally, I think they need to put the... More

I don't usually stay in hostels or other dorm-based accommodation, but I booked a couple of beds at Amigos in the hope of saving a little money and perhaps meeting some interesting people. So, first and foremost, you should bear in mind this review is coloured by my lack of experience with shared accommodation. We arrived there at around 8:00pm... More
