    It's way beyond my expectation for a hostel. (less than) 5 minutes walk from the Hualien station. Comfortable bed. Spacious common area.

    Fantastic hostel. Felt like staying in a nice hotel more than a hostel! Staff were super nice, room was amazingly clean, location is great. The coin laundry is reasonably priced. The only thing is that the free breakfast was a little disappointing, it's literally just toast, coffee, and tomatoes. But for the price, I can't really complain about it.

    Probably one of my favorite stays at a hostel overall. The staff was super amazing with helping me with sorting out any traveling problems and gave me good recommendations on getting around and making sure I could go see the national park. My only problem is that I wish I stayed a bit longer.

    Very high quality hostel, built almost like a hotel. A bit large compared to a lot of hostels, but this didn't make it lack for personal connection and enjoyable hanging out. It's really well placed right opposite the main train and bus stations so easy to explore everywhere around Hualien. Special mention for the staff. They were all so professional, friendly and helpful. I arrived filthy and drenched after a tough bad weather cycle and they helped me getting my stuff and bike nicely sorted.

    The lockers have large holes in place of handles, so you can stick your hand in and feel around inside. And the bed was ROCK HARD. At first I actually thought I didn't have a mattress at all! Also, the cafe said it should open at 8am but on both days I was there it wasn't open until past 9? Seems like most people just go to taroko gorge for a day then go on their way, so it wasn't very social, but the staff make an effort to organize group activities.

    This was the worst place I stayed in Taiwan. The pictures of the dorm rooms are misleading. Two couples were in the room sharing beds. Beds are actually connected to each other. I booked this hostel even though it was more expensive because the pictures show blackout curtains. the curtains have huge gaps as do the partitians. People use their lights which shone right into my bunk. Too much money spent on decoration and not enough thought into comfort.
