Only 10 minutes walking distance from the Hualien train station. Friendly and warm welcome from Paul once I arrived, and he carried my luggage all the way to the third floor. Met Emmerline the girl who came from Singapore doing room & board there when I tried to ask for some information. She helped a lot and even took time... More

It's my first time to write a comment for a hostel. The reason is the Host Mr. Qifeng is a honest and friendly man! and I like the blanket and bed sheet , I even ask them where to buy that. They do own the hostel for a traveler and take you alike friend. When you step in the house... More

Definitely one of my best stays in my 3.5 weeks trip around Taiwan! Not only the price is decent and cheap, but the quality of the facilities are also fantastic and well maintained. Bathroom and toilets, as well as the common areas are super clean and tidy! Definitely makes you feel at home! The only missing point is that there... More

Such a lovely place! The softest bedding ever! Becky and Fong are very friendly and helpful. They know about the town and surroundings very well. They always have the answer for your question. Hualien wasn't my original plan so I haven't done any research what I can do there, but they so easily made my stay contented. All the rooms... More

I went to Hualien with my two friends last week and decided to stay in this hostel. We were received by Paul and he is one very friendly host. What I like about him the most is he takes the effort to get to know all the guests' names. He briefed us on the places that we could visit and... More

Paul, one of the staff there is extremely helpful. He briefed and guided me through the places to see at Taroko as well as Hualien itself with where to eat. He made me feel at home at once and introduced me to all the rest of the guests there which is an excellent way of meeting new people. Definitely the... More

Most likely if you are coming to Hualien you are going to Taroko National Park and planning to do some hiking, etc. So having an immaculate, extremely friendly, centrally located and inexpensive place to stay is all you need. I had my own room (I'm 35 and getting a bit old for the dorm experience though all of the other... More
