Wei from Malaysia

Stayed 3 nights in December 2016

Clean, organized and close to the train & bus stations”

The hotel was a 5-minute walk from Hualien train station as well as the feeder bus station to Taroko National Park (runs as early as 7:00am onward). It was extremely solo-travel friendly with all the necessary brochures and maps to help you get around the city. The entire place was very clean - helped by the fact that you're only allowed their hostel slippers beyond the reception. Bed was comfy as I took a single-unit room to myself (Queen-size) with a nice shower and basic shower amenities all covered. Eateries are aplenty around the area as well (two 7-11's within a minute from each other and also local eateries). Highly recommended.

Quiet enviroment”

When I first checked in, the people were all doing their own things quietly in one corner. I was kind of surprised with the lack of interactions. But as soon as someone make the initiative to chat around, the place got livelier. I guess it depends on what type of room mates you encounter for your visit.

The staff is kind but not at all helpful. I had the impression to disturb every time I ask a question. Besides they never say hello or goodbye what for me, is really unpleasant. I travel only and it is pleasant to have a young hello in the morning for example. Besides they recommend nothing and even if I am used to managing only, it is always nice to have recommendations of places. For backpackers, I think that you can find better.
