Hualien 11 is a superbly well-kept and welcoming place. Lisa proved to be a knowledgeable host and made every effort to ensure our comfort. She provided many extras such as surprising us with fruit and lotion after we went rafting and became red as lobsters. The place is on a back street which makes it very quiet. There are a... More

Lisa is a great host who replied to our emails promptly and was really nice even when we bungled the booking dates. The hostel is located about 15-20mins walk from the Hualien train station and it's easy enough to locate with the help of Google Maps. It is quite a walk from the main streets but Hualien is a nice... More

Hualien 11 is located along GuoFu 13th, one of the smaller lanes along Guofu 8th street. Approximately a 15 -20 minute walk from the Hualien railway station. With the help of the directions provided from the booking sites, it was quite easy to locate. The lady-owner named Lisa was friendly and helpful. Check-in was only available after 2-3pm but we...

I stayed here for two nights to visit the gorge on a day trip. The owner was very friendly and helped me arrange my visit. Overall it was average and not the nicest place to stay but clean, easy with helpful owners. Not located near the main night markets but a short taxi ride away. The room was backing onto... More

The lady-owner and her son were extremely helpful and convenient, the room was extremely comfortable (we were a group of 4). They invited us to drink with other resident from the hostel, provided food and drinks. Definitely recommend it, maybe the place is a bit hard to find from the outside but that's all.

This minsu (眺望雲海) is not referred as Hualien 11 in Chinese. 眺望雲海has no signage as it is the owner's house in a housing area. Just look out for road name (GuoFu 13th street) and house number (no : 54). It is 10mins walk fr the Hualien's train station through the back exit. Pickup to/from train station is only from 8am-8pm... More

First for the pluses: the minsu hostess, Lisa and her son Little Boss (Xiao Lao Ban), are extremely approachable and hospitable hosts. Lisa replies to emails promptly and will assist you with any enquiries where necessary. Although she did not help us with the laundry personally, we could use her washing machine without any additional charges. The minsu is also... More

Lisa Jie (Sister Lisa) came to pick my 2 cousins and myself up from a train station nearby. A friendly lady, she acted as our tour guide too, pointing and showing us where we should visit as she drove us to her place where we will be staying for the next 2 days. We stayed at this teddybear-themed room which... More

The lady boss, Lisa, is very friendly and helpful. She picked us up from Hualien railway station upon arrival and sent us to the station again when we checked out. She and her son would go the extra miles to help us whenever needed. The room was the best decorated room during our trip to Taiwan. Our kids loved it!... More

The lady boss, Lisa, is very nice and sincere and her minsu is clean, comfortable, spacious... we really couldn't bear to leave the place on our last day. We rode a bike and lost our way and was really nervous but Lisa sent 小老板 to guide us back from the train station. We were well taken care of. This is... More
