Just recently opened (in June 2013) everthing in Z.H. Garden looks nice and shiny. From kitchen to living room: everything was attentively furnished to make the guests as comfortable as possible (succesfully :). The dorms have extra wide beds, lockers and air conditioning. The bathrooms were kept clean at all times and the kitchen provided a refrigerator and cooking facilities.
The location is just fine, very quiet, with a nice garden (where a bar will open soon). A little bit off the centre (3km to the railway station), but for getting around and to Taroko you'll probably want to rent a bike anyway. They even offer bicycles for rent and a pickup from the train station.
The staff was simply amazing: everyone very friendly and helpful, the owner helped us organizing our tours, gave us tips on where to go or where to rent a bike, provided us with maps and even booked us a River Tracing Trip. When I forgot my phone they send it to our next hostel immediately!
All in all a great guest house, great value for money and really recommendable.More
