  • Great place to stay when you're in Hualien, staff is extremely helpful Check-in is after 11AM, before 11 there is no-one at the reception, keep this in mind. There is no communal area, but the coffee place attached to the hostel serves as such. They have great coffee and Taiwanese microbrews (ask for 獨立啤酒 DULI) !! Facilities are great (NEW washing machine :p) and rooms are very clean! Looking for a place to stay in Hualien is a no-brainer: stay at Formosa!

  • The staff was a young lady called Kay (in English. .do not know her Chinese name. She was so helpful. I will return this month because of her I really thought she was the owner, because she cared for the hosel and client's like an owner would I hope they pay her well. Because employees like her are hard to find. At least they are in Canada hard to hire. There is a bit of a walk maybe 1 or so K. From the train station. But Kay made the trip worth it.
