            new and clean hostel with capsule bed”

            I was staying in this hostel two nights in hualien city. This hostel is not close to railway station and requires a motorbike or so on to arrive there. Room is very clean and quiet, especially bathroom/toilet is spacious, newly renovated, fantastic and clean. I will stay in this hostel again.

            Nice Hostel, Nice staff”

            Very nice staff, rest room is good, well designed hostel

            I had a very comfortable stay here. The staff is very very nice, my suitcase was a little broken when carrying by luggage ladder, the staff told me to buy a new one and give her the bill, she will return money to me but I told her that it's okay, it's also my fault that not packing the suitcase carefully. And during my stay here, whenever I met her, she told me the same and always said sorry. When check out, she gave me a red envelope and said that this is from her boss, please accept their apology. I had no other choice but receiving it. Think about it, I booked the room with only 9$ and she gave me 45$ for compensation. This is totally, completely the nicest hostel that I've ever stayed. Thank you Cave Hostel :)

            Good new spot in Hualien !”

            Location, room, amenities.

            Brand new hostel in Hualien that smells very new :) The dormitory beds are great and the bathrooms are huge and countless. The hotel is near the "triangle" shopping area and the new "East Gate" Night Market which gives plenty of eating option. The staff is very helpful and try hard to help despite their little english speaking issues :)

            Private, Quiet, Clean, Far for walk?”

            • The hotel is brand new and it give you a private moments. The capsule is big enough for person. • We still have some myth about the location. It's 30 mins walk to Hualien Station (2.8-3 km.) but near to A1 and some good restaurants. If you are a Walk Only traveller, this hostel might be too far, It's ok if you rent a motorcycle, and it's ok if you are a hardcore walker. • The hotpot restuarant opposite to Hualien Bussiness High School is cheap and fantastic with refillable softdrink and ice cream :]

            Comfy Hostel in Hualien ”

            Convenient as it nearby the night market. Toilets and showers are clean. The staff are friendly and helpful, they even provided us towels to use even though it's not included. The Capsule bed are big, soft, comfy and relaxing. They even got a mini lift to ferry your luggage to the respective floors. Definitely a must try in hualien :)

            Great place to stay”

            This is the first hostel that I've stayed at that has a double bed for couples which is great! The "caves" are pretty fun to live in and gives great privacy. The design also helps insulate noise (i.e. neighbors snoring). The facility is very clean as guests are required to change into indoor slippers before entering the sleeping area. Very friendly staffs and breakfast is out on the counter early in the morning which was nice. Will definitely stay here again!

            Great hostel!”

            Booked a double bunk bed for two. The bunk beds were like those in a capsule hotel, with pull-down blinds at the foot of the beds for privacy. Bed was comfy, although it got really warm with the comforter as the air-conditioner was above the room door and didn't blow cool air into the bunks. Very satisfied with our stay here. There was a toilet/ shower room on each level for both genders. Toilet and shower cubicles were adequate, and there were cubicles designated for ladies. Hair dryers, shampoo and body gel were provided. The hostel had breakfast for guests too, with a spread of white bread, butter, fruit jam, salad leaves with raisins,

            The hostel is clean and the facilities are complete. The common area is comfortable for gathering. The staffs are helpful and friendly that they arrange all of us in the same room and tell us they wont arrange other customer to our room to let us stay comfortably. The walkway inside room is quite small that hard to put few luggages on the floor. Overall it was a very pleasant stay and will definitely come back next time.

            Nice Hostel, location not great”

            Really nice hostel with nice facilities. Disappointing breakfast. Not a fan of double beds, mixed with singles. A dorm should be one or the other, in my opinion. Although a nice hostel, a bit far from the central district and train station. The vibe was also lacking. Very little interaction between guests.
