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 are no laundry facilities and the nearest laudromat is at least 15-20mins walk away from the hostel. Other than that, location of the hostel is pretty central and train and bus terminal is just 10 - 15 mins walk away from it. And nearby there are entertainments too such as cinemas and bowling alley!
Got trapped in Hualian for extra 2 nights when Typhoon Matmo hits. And i guess its a blessing in disguise as we were able to stay in the hostel for a longer time and get to interact and know every other travellers better and making new friends from all over the world! The owners Qi Fong and Paul even organised a bowling outing as well as a dinner outing during the typhoon and we really enjoyed ourselves!
Many thanks to the owners and helpers (QiFong, Paul, Becky, Sunny and AhPao) for the overwhelming warmth and hospitality! Hualian is a beautiful place, definitely a must visit in Taiwan!
