  • My second time staying and I would stay here again. Located near Hualien train station, about a 5-10 min walk. Lots of mochi shops along the way. Overnight stay so we could travel to Taroko Gorge early AM. Very knowledgeable staff about attractions. They also offer a bus tour discount for nearby attractions; the bus stops right outside the hostel. Not much selection in restaurants around immediate area, but take the bus to the night market. Discount for mochi place nearby. Very clean.

  • Overall this hostel was fine but my friend got a mysterious bug bite while she was sleeping! Another guest had bites on his arms after sleeping here for one night, they were pretty convinced it was bed bugs. Personally I did not get bit or see any bugs, but stay here at your own risk. Also the staff does not speak English but they were very nice, just a heads up if you want to ask any questions about the area you'll have to do it at the train station.

  • Not really clean. Had a bug problem and the bathroom was perpetually wet since there was no divide between the toilet and the shower.
