A bit distant from city center, about 1 km, 15 min walking distance from bus station. And since it is away from city center, it is a nice place to chill and watch stars! Staff r friendly and pretty helpful. :)
Islet Inn was a really fun place to stay! Great facilities with lots of games and activities, it is really easy to meet people. Although it is down a long country road, there are restaurants and a weekend night market within walking distance (10 minutes or so). Taxis are cheap and convenient to get around Puli or to Sun Moon Lake.
The staff was super helpful in telling me the transport to my destinations. The environment was very relaxing and clean. My room was tidied up when I'm out in daytime. It took about 10-15 mins to cycle to downtown Puli, but the bicycles are borrowed for free. Though the location is a bit inconvenient, I saw fireflies at night near the hostel!

Great place to stay at with comfortable rooms. The staff speak brilliant English and were very friendly and helpful. The bar was also nice to sit in for an evening beer after a days sight seeing around the area.

At first i thought it's more like a hostel as others, but turns out we got a room like a little hotel, the place is a bit surprised me at first, seems like not easy to get along, but then the night market and bus station is not far and you can just take their bike, no extra fee! We only stay for 1 night and if we've got time we really wanna stay more nights!! You will never get bored, for so many facilities like table tennis, skateboard, board games, books (chinese n eng), big place movie night
Is a great place to stay. However, it will be better if the heater for the water work well. It is a pain that need to bath cold on a cold day.
The hostel itself is quite far from many of the main attractions as you will need to take coach buses to access them. The hostel does provide bikes (not the best), but you can bike around Puli on them. Also, if you arrive on the right night you can visit the night market down the street from the hostel. No need to worry about finding food as within a few minutes walking will have you near a grocery store, McDonald's and a few other restaurants in the area.
