Stayed 1 night in the 4-bed dorm in this hostel. The outdoor area in front of the hostel gives a very nice and cosy feeling.The inside of the hostel was also very pleasant. It is far from the Hualien train station thus you need to take a taxi to reach there. The hostel has arrangement with the local taxi. They can help to arrange taxi or provide the contact number. It is nearby Cixingtan. As I am in Hualien mainly to visit the Toroko Gorge I didn't explore the other places around the hostel. According to the taxi driver who took me to the hostel, there is a public swimming with warm pool just down the road.
The staff (玉米) who received me was very friendly and sweet. The hostel provides basic amenities such as towel, dental kit with shampoo and shower gel in the bathroom. I took the lower bunk for convenient but it very near to the upper bunk. At 1.68m, I was not able to sit upright with my head knocking to the upper deck. The bathroom is attached to the room. It may be nosier if other people in the room are using the bathroom. But it was ok cos the snores of my fellow room mates are much more overwhelming. After a day of travelling, I could somehow manage to doze of.
All in all, it was a comfortable hostel with value for money.
