The location is great - on Haibin Lu facing the Pacific. Rooms are really good value and this is close to Hualien downtown and Nanbin night markets... about 10-15 minutes walk. The neighborhood is generally calm and friendly with a relaxed feel of being almost right on the shore; this is actually the first road from the Pacific and there are relatively few buildings and things are slow on this street.
The hosts are great and breakfast is good. Breakfast is mostly Chinese with noodles, congee, buns, etc. but you do you have toast and spreads.
If you are looking to stay close to downtown but in relative quiet with a great ocean view, then this certainly is a very good place. Call them up and ask for discounts; actual prices are much lower than those listed as anywhere else in Taiwan.
