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

  • This hostel is very great and so a the staff members. Any questions regarding any visits to any locations they would gladly help you make your trip happen. The rooms itself are pretty clean, could have used a bit more ventilation at times. For the most part, it had what I needed for my stay. They also provide rental bikes, I didn't use them, but my friends did so that was convenient. My favorite part of this is hostel was meeting other travels that were there!

  • 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.
