The hostel has an amazing atmosphere, I really liked it. It suits the "Dulan"-sytle. The owner of the hostel is nice. We went to Dulan on a Saturday night. Its decoration is great and I loved it, but the bathroom was a little dirty. There was not too much going on at the sugar factory, but one bar had an great band and people started dancing, laughing, doing barbecue, it was cool. I would definitely recommend Dulan and especially this hostel:)


We arrived a lot earlier than expected at the hostel and it wasn't a problem at all. We could already check in hours before the actual check-in time, which was great. The owner invited us to dinner with friends that night and gave us some good tips on sightseeing in the area. We rented some electric bikes (offered by the hostel) and explored the area around Dulan. The bikes made our journey to the beach at Sanyuan much easier as well. Beautiful surroundings, glad to have been here.


The owners Barry (Dutch) and Sonia (Taiwanees) are really great hosts. They can tell you exactly which are the best places to go to. I stayed in a nice airconditioned dormitory with a small balcony viewing the main street. There was pleanty of space. The bus stop is just a few hundred meters away.

Dulan 98 and Dulan 102 belong to the same owner and are, basically spoken, one hostel in two seperate buildings. The private rooms with window are very pleasant. The woner, Barry, is helpful and a source of valuable information about what's going on in Dulan and surroundings. I wouldn't however not recommend to take the Tatami room, since it has no window and no aircon and will become extremely hot at night, even with 2 fans running.


Hostel staff very friendly chilled and good music

We stayed in the top floor with an added balcony looking out over the main street. Perfect location for several restaurants and the Sugar Factory. They have two cats, one friendly (and somewhat lazy) and the other was shy. Shower, A/C and fan all worked. Wi-fi was only available downstairs but they had a comfortable area to relax in. We would definitely stay there again.
