    Probably the most informal and hostel-like hostel ever, but I mean those in a good way. The staff are friendly, they have bikes (not the best, but free) you can use, and the place is relatively clean. One downside is that the sink is outside, but honestly, you're probably not coming here for a fancy experience so it'll be okay.

    A hostel where you can feel like you are back home. If you are lucky, you can get a home made meal, because a certain someone cooked a whole pot of curry. The owners are very nice and even brought me a traditional Taiwanese dessert when they went shopping. Truly a place to relax and scratch their dog and two cats. They will love it. Be careful! The owner likes to take pictures, so after your stay there you will be richer for few photos, that you didn't even know they exist.

    I cannot explain enough how awesome the staff are here! I'm travelling alone and they took it upon themselves to invite me to hang out when they had time off...treated me like an old friend. So fun and so kind! The hostel itself is in a great location and is decently comfortable and clean. The free bike rentals are great for getting around town, and the outdoor porch area is perfect for hanging out during the day. Would highly recommend this hostel!

    I had a great stay here. However, the town itself Dulan has infrequent buses from taitung train station so if you can hire a bike you are better off. The facilities are super basic, like a traditional hostel. Staff are friendly but not all speak English well. The staff gave good suggestions and they have bike you can use free of charge.

    I usually have a hard time giving bad reviews--too often people don't understand what hostels truly are. That said, this place seems to be over-rated.. the dorm is absolutely tiny, with 6 beds and no room for backpacks or much of anything. We all woke up feeling sick from the lack of air flow, and the staff heavily regulates the AC. Exterior wall is razor thin, so a lot of noise pollution as well. There's enough great hostel options in Taiwan.. I'd skip this one.
