I arrived in Hualien a truly solo traveller: not a single friend to speak of and no certainty as to what to expect from the city. When I left a week later, I left with a new group of friends. The guys at Amigos were not just courteous, not just helpful, not just friendly; they were genuinely excited to have... More

We stayed there for 4 nights to get around in the region. The staff is absolutely friendly and helpful with whatever request you have. And the place itself is pretty chilly! ... I guess, when you wanna go to Hualien, that's for sure the place to stay and to start your travels ... combined with a scooter (rentable around the... More

They are very helpful and will provide any information you need if you intend to go to Taroko Gorge or anywhere in Hualien. The dorm rooms were clean, with airconditioning.... More

My stay at Amigos was fantastic. I was in Hualien to visit Taroko Gorge, as many visitors are, but was having difficulty finding a scooter to rent. They helped me get one, and advised me to get it the night before my excursion so that I could get the benefit of the full 24 hour rental. The rooms were clean... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Amigos. The dorm and bathroom were both clean and pleasant. I was there in low season so had the whole dorm to myself which may have improved my experience. There was a power socket next to each bed and shampoo and shower gel dispensers in the bathroom. The common area was relaxed and friendly... More

Clean rooms and bathrooms, very friendly atmosphere; very good location- literally 5 minutes walk from the Hualien Train Station and Hualien Bus Station (where the bus for Taroko Gorge starts and terminates), free wifi; breakfast, coffee and tea included in the price of the bed; very cool lobby area. Aircon in the rooms! Spent there two nights and I truly... More

I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere at Amigos. The staff is friendly, and the first floor has good music, good books, and plenty of free tea. They also have bike rentals. I rented one of their basic bicycles and enjoyed 2 days of cycling up and down the coast. I highly recommend this hostel to anyone looking for a fun, relaxing... More

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
