I had a great stay at Elisa House. The rooms are clean, cool and comfortable. There is a fridge and kitchen if you want to do your own cooking as well as a comfy common room with an HD TV with many english movie channels. The hostel is run by a family who also lives on the property. They are the kindest and most accommodating people. Although the hostel is a little out of the way, it is located near some great natural attractions, all bike/bus-accessible. You really cannot go wrong here.
Great minsu with very friendly staff! No hard selling of tour packages, and the boss, Mr Jian, provided us with many food and travel recommendations! Definitely a must-stay in Hualien! The only downside was its location, but it was easily rectified w the use of their taxi-calling service
The hostel was actually the home of a couple. The location was slightly far from Hualien city and the walk to zhi qiang night market is around 45 mins. it's not something bad.. along the way it passes some nice local food stores and good scenery... enjoyed the stay as the room was spacial and very clean. Nice deco! 25 mins walk to Ji An railway station..
Although it is a bit far from the city center (Hualien's public transportation is terrible), it is a very nice place to choose again! Landlord is friendly and he provides reasonable price for renting car. Hostel's decoration is nice, price is reasonable, facility is new and well-equipped, a very comfortable place. Highly recommend!
House owner was very friendly and nice. We arrived earlier than expected. And she was there to accommodate to us. She also fetched us to the beach and helped us on asking for the bikes for rent in case they hike up the price for tourists. She even told the bike place to call for taxi for us after we were done. At night she sent some watermelons for us cause she said it was hualien's specialty. All cut up and in a tupperware. I had a wonderful stay.
