  • The hostel was a bit hard to find since their sign isn't very noticeable. We got there at night and the hostess was kind enough to text me to confirm my arrival time. She was a very pleasant woman to deal with, who was also kind enough to save our luggage for a few hours and also give us directions to a street with many restaurants. The beds were very comfy. I didn't like that the fan and AC didn't have controls inside our room, but besides that it was good.

  • Stayed in either 2B or 2C and the room was really dirty. Rooms weren't swept and there was hair all over the carpet, on the floor, and even on the beds assigned to us! (Meaning they didn't change the bedsheets after the guests left) Really disappointed with our stay here as the ventilation is bad and the air con wasn't turned on for us the second night!!!!! (No idea why) common Room area was really hot and humid. Hostel staff wasn't able to give us much info about hualien either
