when i look for a hostel, i look for certain key factors to make the experience worthwhile and Journey Hostel definitely checked all the boxes and even more! here are a few highlights as to why:
friendly hostess & great service? check - huge thanks to Nita, she was smiling and offering helpful tips from the moment we arrived and all throughout our stay, providing excellent tips for the neighborhood and best places to visit for the amazing surrounding sites. the hostel even lends out its bikes FOR FREE so we rode around exploring the area without needing to rent.
convenient location? check - just a ~15 min walk from the Hualien train & bus stations and then about a 15-20 min bike ride to beautiful natural scenes, e.g. rivers, mountains, and waterfalls. also a 20 min walk to the local night market (or you can take the bikes and reach in half the time...)
quality, comfortable accommodation? check - my friend and i shared a private double room and were super happy with the size of the room and the cleanliness. the decor was minimalist with style and the room was far enough from the road so that we didn't even hear the street noise. the shared bathroom was also very clean (well, at least the girls' was... cannot vouch for the guys' :)) on top of these facilities, the living/common room/kitchen area were also very well-decorated to provide for a great chill environment to meet fellow travelers and hang out with a drink.
book it :)
