Very conveniently located at a walking distance away from the Taroko Visitor Center. The only thing I don't quite like was that the exact opposite room is a shared bathroom.

There were some problems but these were dealt with promptly and helpfully by the staff


Didn't managed to stay a night at the Hostel because I have to rush back to Kaoh Shiong on the same day of my arrival because of a personal emergency. But I did have a very nice experience of the hostel and its manager, Ken. He is very helpful as he provided me with excellent advices on how to navigate the Taroke Gorge on a very tight schedule. Moreover, he went above and beyond his call of duty and offered to drive me back to Hualien from the hostel to catch the last train out of the city.

Situated just at the entrance of the national park. Only negative point : no restaurant open after 5:30 around... Staff really friendly and the hostel was clean.

Rooms great, showers just ok. Location is excellent/15 min to park HQ. A couple restaurants nearby. The real highlight was the staff. Ken ended up playing tour guide and driving us all around the park on our day there. He gave us good information and was just super helpful from start to finish, and he really didn't charge a lot of money for the service. If you are pressed for time and want to really see Taroko, this is your place. The service made it a truly memorable experience. Thank you!


Great escape from the big cities, within walking distance to Taroko National Park. Ken who runs the place with his wife and their dog Ba-Ma are so friendly. Ken was kind enough to take me on his scooter to the night market and into Hualien City which was an amazing way to see Hualien.


The owener was very helpful. Could not take the shuttle down in time from Taroko, offered to drive us down . Place is 5 mins away form the main entrance of Taroko but a little far from Xincheng Train station. Have to either take a cab or 15 mins bike ride. Great scenery, nice owener.. Good for a couple of days stay. Even helped us to plan our day around taroko.


Right next to the entrance of Taroko Gorge, very convenient. They called the scooter rental shop and the guy picked us up from there to get a scooter. Not many restaurants in the area around, but there is a 7/11. Staff was friendly and English was alright. Beds were comfortable, shower was bad since not a lot of water came out and the temperature changed all the time. The hostel is great to stay for 1 or 2 nights to visit Taroko, but not much longer.


Staffs are REALLY nice! rooms are in basement, but it isn't humid and so clean. Location is very good cuz it's nearest hostel in entrance of Taroko, But they do not rent a bicycle for going Taroko person cuz too dangerous.
