We stayed in Hualien for a night after touring the beautiful Taroko Gorge. We chose IS life B&B as it is located very near the train station and the price is reasonable. It is advisable to carry light luggage as the only way to get to the rooms is via a few flights of stairs. Our room was on the... More

Hualien is now my favorite Taiwan destination and Is-Life Minsu is hands down the best place to stay - with or woithout a budget. The location is amazing - tucked away inside but just a walk away from Jhongshan Road which is the main road in Hualien city. Basically you can walk to: - Hualien train station - 2 lovely... More

The owner, Lilian was very friendly. The room was spacious and affordable. It is 5 mins drive from Hualien train station. The downside was, the wifi only limited to the common area (dining room). There are 2 night markets around this BnB.

We stayed in Is Life minsu in june 2014. Its very 7 minutes walk from Hualien train station, and close to scooter rentals and cafees. The owner Lilian was super friendly, sending us a text if she should pick us up at the station, and sticking a note on our door the following morning saying that the weather should be... More

We had a nice stay at this guesthouse, the room was spacious and had a four poster bed! The owner lent us bicycles and also gave us information on what to do and see. If you book this hostel though, you need to make sure you give the correct arrival time as she might not be in. This is what... More

Lilian and Her Older sister tried their best to accommodate everyone from Taiwan or other countries. The Minsu is only with 5 minutes walking distance from the Hualien Railway Station. It is very easy to found based on their direction on Internet. Or you could arrange the pick up before your arrival. The room is very clean and tidy, Please... More

My friends and I stayed 1 night at this minsu. As we set out from Cingjing to Hehuanshan then Taroko Gorge, dinner at Hualien City, by the time we reach the Minsu, it's already about 10pm. The location of the minsu is pretty near Hualien train station. However, if we were to find it ourselves, I think we will have... More
