  • There are two large windows in my room and two small windows in the bathroom which is not common in Taiwan. Most of the hostels I stayed in Taiwan do not have any windows in the room and the bathroom. Great point to keep.

  • Jasmine and her husband are really friendly and helpful. It was New Year (1st Jan) and we couldn't get cab to bring us for a day tour last minute. Jasmine and husband helped us to make a few rounds of calling to get a cab for a reasonable price and even brought us out for lunch while waiting for our cab! They are such a passionate and lovely couple. The rooms are clean and value for money. I would definitely come back to stay if I were to visit Hualien again.

  • I really enjoyed it at Black Bear. Everything is new so it's very fresh and nice. I got a lot of help from Jasmine and she was so nice all the time and definitely made my stay much better! To sum it up I had a great time in Hualien and the stay at the hostel definitely contributed to that (and I really liked Max!).
