We stayed for 2 nights in Hualien and can't rate this hostel highly enough because of the amazing staff- Nita in particular. From the moment we arrived she was organising tours, checking train times and helping us to make Green Island reservations by phone. Nothing was too much trouble and we asked a lot if questions! We enjoyed sitting out... More

Dont expect confortable beds...they are very hard. But you will get really good service, the host is very helpful and speaks really well in English. She also let us leave our bags on spot so we could go cycling the east coast for a few days... Which was easier than trying to mail it... The hostel has a bar downstairs... More

I highly recommend Journey Hostel to anyone visiting Hualien. Charlie is the BEST host anyone can ask for! The hostel is done up very nicely and the atmosphere really encourages travellers to interact with each other. Facilities and location are fantastic. There isn't anything else I would ask for.

Journey hostel is excellent. The friendly staff and relaxed style makes it feel more like staying with friends than at a hostel! Nice bar in the front which is open to the street, and a relaxing courtyard with a lovely fishpond inside for those times when you want a more quiet atmosphere. Upstairs are the dorms and bathroom which are... More

I really enjoyed my stay at journey hostel. Inside the house is stylishly decoration and the rooms are comfortable and clean. We stay at a room that we can see the pond. The staff is really helpful and friendly. Give us some local rice wine to try . I'd recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Hualien!
