I stayed for two nights at Journey Hostel and would highly recommend it! Very clean dorm rooms and bathrooms. There are lockers available to put your valuables in (they use keys, no need to bring your own lock). The shared bathroom is very clean and has shampoo, soap. Nita, one of the hostel staff, is awesome, and the place definitely... More

First and one possible negative which I might be wrong about: There seemed to be no hot water in the showers as there are no individual hot water heaters (usually flats/guest houses in Asia have them rather than a central water heater) and there seemed to be no central hot water - that would be a problem in winter but...

The room was clean, bed was okay with comfy sheets. Bathroom was clean too with free soap and shampoo. You can rent a towel for... More

Journey hostel is a great place to base your self for exploring Hualien. It's a short 10 minute walk to the night market and 10 minutes in the other direction to the train station. The hostel is clean and very homey. My only complaint was that my room was a bit loud because of the location on the second floor... More

One of the bosses is a woman I met, who is nice n helpful, love the clean environment. The decoration here is interesting, Chinese yard art could be seen inside I can't complain that, but the location is not very convenient for dinning and taking transport

The location is really nice as it's in the middle of night market and train station. Inside the hostel, the decoration is really awesome. There is a bar so that you can grab a drink after traveling. The common area is really fantastic. There is a library for book sharing. There are different kinds of book. There is also a... More

Journey hostel made my stay in Hualien to a unforgettable experience. The hostel building is not overly exciting. The bar and the pond with a huge library wall next to it are eye catching therefore however are the rooms a little bit cold and contain not too much charme. Means that there are really justs bunks in the room. What... More
