It was my first time to go on a solo trip and to try dorm style hostel. I had been worrying about the cleanness of the room and the bed mites in bed before the trip. However, hello backpackers was really nice and clean. It gives me a cozy home feeling. The interior decoration were simple and stylish. The toilet was really clean and the bed was so comfortable.
It was the people that make my stay so memorable. The roommates were nice and friendly. The staff are really helpful. They will help you to arrange your itinerary and ensure you could enjoy the best of hualien. I wasn't able to book a train ticket back to taipei. They helped me to check the train schedule and even drove me to the station!
The location of the hostel was a but far away from city centre and rail station but the taxi far was reasonable it was about 140-220NT. It was quite near the tourist attraction-七星潭.. A 20 mins cycling will do and the hostel have bike rental for free!
I still want to come back to hualien and will definite pick hello backpacker again! Next time in Summer=D
