“Very nice Minsu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

This minsu was recommended by our friend. We stayed 2 nights here and we like it a lot!

The room and surrounding are very clean and cozy, I love the dining area a lot. Bed was nice to sleep on and room are very roomy.

Ms Wong, the owner are very nice. She went all the way to bring us to a nice restaurant to have our meal.

All though there's nothing much around the minsu, it's a good place to stay for some quiet time and rest after all the day activities.

Breakfast is just delicious. Makes me very happy to start the day. Will come again to stay when I visit Hualien.

Stayed in Manado hostel for 3 nights in my recent visit to Hualien. The hostel cleanliness is remarkable and the cosy setting is exactly like the photographs on the web site. We are unlucky that the weather failed us, we did enjoyed ourselves just loafing in the hostel enjoying the coffee and reading our books.
The lady boss and her assistant are very friendly and are always readily to help us in any other ways. Even they housekeeper is very friendly and chatty sharing some places of interest.
Staying here is value for money.

This place is far from town, and there seem to be only 1 or 2 place you can walk to for dinner. However, if you are like most people who is getting a driver or a car (self-drive) in Hualien, then that is not a big problem.

The hotel is quite nicely decorated, with 3 levels. Wifi is pretty weak to non existent in the rooms in level 3; you might want to hang out in the comfy level 2 sofas to get some internet. There are no lifts, so if you have issues with heavy luggage, you may want to request for a level 2.

The lady boss comes around at night and stays around the dining tables to chat with guests, dish out simple snacks, etc. Before we left, she even gave us small packets of their local rice.

Worth considering.

We booked for 2 nights thru agoda and just checked out of the minsu(B&B). Xiaowei picked us up for free from a local eatery after we arrived at hualien, and suggested a quick stop at a local fruit store to buy some local papaya and dragonfruits..we ate them the next day they were very sweet!
We spent the next 2 days at the local eateries, night market and hiring a driver to bring us around..
The minsu arranged for us a local guide with a spacious 5 seater mini van to bring us around for a very reasonable price..
Overall, the minsu has a very homely feel to it, great decor and very friendly lady owner and staff... we were even offered pomelo and fruits every evening when we hung out at the dining area to chat!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Hostel was really nice, owner friendly and helpful and all. Beds were comfy, rooms were great, breakfast was lovely. However I was slightly disappointed as we didn’t receive the same kind of very extremely great service (free pick up from train station, free tour around) that others had mentioned they previously had. It might have been that the owners were busy (hostel seemed fully booked), but still, it was just nice, not amazing. If you’re looking to book a taxi for a day tour, but only have 2 people, you can ask xiao wei to help you see if other hostels/bnbs have others who want to share a taxi. She was helpful and found two others to share a one-day tour cab so it ended up being much cheaper. The location of this hostel is a bit far from town, so if you’re looking for somewhere convenient, this might not be the place.

Delicious breakfast. Tidy and nice room. Shower is good too. Within walkable distance from the city centre, so able to enjoy the peaceful environment of Hualien but not far from the shopping and eating places.

We checked in December 11th 2012.

I have traveled to dozens of countries, stayed in hundreds of hotels. This is without doubt, the best of them all! The hostel was not built for money it seems, it was built by love of the owner Ms. Wong.

You can see the loving details everywhere, from the little pots of plants and orchids, to the parrot and sugar-gliders she keeps, and the spotlessly clean interior and very tasteful decor. She even makes special pumpkin-soy bean drink for breakfast, served in a unique bottle!

This is more like sharing someone's home, than staying in a commercial hostel. God bless the kindness of Ms Wong. May the world have more people like her to make it a better place.
