Dulan Backpacker Dog Hostel, Taitung, Taiwan
9.7
14th Feb 2014

The place is owned and manageed by a nice, passionate well traveled couple who love and understand hostel living. They are always available to assist unlike many hostels in Taiwan with absent owners. They make effort to introduce guests to each other that create a communal spirit. I planned to stay three days and round up staying for a week and counting. Other staff are nice too. They are attentive but never intrusive and all the guests are considerate because of the cheerful mood in this place.

Everything is perfect. Beautiful pond with high skylight in the common area, well stocked bar, isolated upper sleeping area. This is one of the best hostels I have stayed. Nita, the hostess and owner is an avid backpacker knows everything in eastern Taiwan and love to share.

Value for the money? You bet. When I book the the Q, for the lively area, I did'nt expect much because the very very low price. Boy, what a surprise, truly first rate in any price. Sit in a quite nice neighborhood, minutes from night market, close to Taipei maim library and Daan forest park. The guy in charge here, Raph even made a doctor appointment for me in Taiwan Univ hospital, took Debbie to dentist. What he thinks he is...mother superior? I ain't complaining.

This a brand new well designed hostel in Xiamen, probably the largest in the area. It is refreshing and a rarity in China: real mattress, nice bedding, super flushing toilet that means you don't need to put that things in the basket. I am deeply moved, just kidding, sort of. They are still doing some touch up jobs, but the place is already very livible. The staff are attentive and responsive.

I love this place, right in the charming old town and near West Lake, with attentive and knowledgable English speaking staff. Everything is great except the smelly bathrooms in some part of the area, but very clean never the less.

Few miles away from ancient city proves to be a plus•••facing a beautiful lake provides the tranquility for a good rest; walking distace to 3 bus line to any place in the city. Being a well designed brand new facility have all the modern amenities. This is a well run hostel. I have all travel, tickets arranged by the staff, even add money to my phone. I am almost spoiled. Just love this place.

This is one of the best hostels I have stayed while traveling around China extensively. All rooms have enclosed shower--- a rarity in China. The whole facility are super clean, have a nice common room with computers and TV, with a porch overlooking a beautiful tranquil lake. The WIFI connection is the best I have experienced in China that are avalable in all rooms and common area. Staff are attentive and friendly with good communication skill. Short walking distance to bus no 3 and 4 .

This is the best hostel I have stayed. The mood is so good, I made a lot of friends and we traveled together for dinner and exchange contact information, not to mention the modern, convenient , clean facility, they are great. The staff are attentive, cheerful. They booked all trips and airline tickets for me, they almost spoiled me. As an older traveler traveling along, they sure provide assurance to me. I love those lovely Chinese young people.

I first discover the hostel life style in Qeenstown, New Zealand where I met young people all over the world as well as not so young retired, on leaved professors, retired military officers. We all got along and had great time. At Cozy Planet, it adds another dimension: personal attention by the hosts, Luis and Sam, their affable, sincere manor really bringing people together. Boy, did I have a great time! They, Luis and Sam seem genuinely enjoying do it. The place is tastefully done.
