    Phenomenal hostel with great service, great breakfast, and fantastic location. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to visit Taroko Gorge and/or using the train or bus stations. The rooms were really clean and spacious. The staff was helpful and helped us figure out a really memorable itinerary. Overall I'd recommend this hostel, especially if you are traveling in a group of 4 because you 4 will get your own room

    We are a couple in a double private room. Pros: - upgraded to double room with 2 beds! - Lots of space, clean, cups and tea in room, big bathroom and separate shower over bath so it doesn’t get that entire room wet - Water fountain at the end of floor (8), - Free good breakfast Cons: - AC is a bit noisy and doesn’t seem to work too well

    Perfect location and super helpful staff that organize everything from whale watching tours to paragliding and kayaking in the beautiful landscape around Hualien. Everything you could ask for is provided by the hostel, the stay feels super uncomplicated and the breakfast in the nice common area makes you feel at ease to have a chat with the other guests. Best hostel I ever stayed in!

    Rooms and facilities are very nice. We were in a 3-bedroom all girls dorm and had a bathroom to ourselves and lots of room. The staff are not very friendly or helpful. We tried booking a tour with them a week ahead of our trip and after thinking it was confirmed for a week they cancelled the night before our trip without much explanation or apology. Breakfast was not worth it at all. Go there to sleep, don’t expect anything else from them.

    No idea how this place gets positive reviews. The dorm room was like a mousetrap, very difficult to move when people are awake. Neither bed light nor power outlet worked. Very few toilets and showers for how many people there are, and everything gets messy very quickly. Loud party music in the common area till late at night. You can feel the bed springs through the mattress. No hand soap in bathrooms or floormats for showers. The list goes on. Avoid this place!
