Best backpacker's hostel. Period.”

East Hostel is a little unassuming backpacker's hostel that is big on quality. The communal bathrooms were incredibly well furnished with good hot water shower flow. There is also washer and dryer on each floor (4 x 10NTD coin for each). The beds were capsule style and were incredibly well-designed and comfortable to sleep in. Overal, would even come to Yilan again just to stay in this hostel.

It’s close to JiaoXi bus terminal; each dorm bed have 2 locker with electronic locks, that you can worry free to the valuable objects. Hostel is no longer provide hot spring bath, but you can easily find other hot spring bath in JiaoXi.

Clean and spacious bed”

Room was slightly smaller than I expected for the 4 bed room, however the spacious bed, head space while sitting on my bed, and general capsule space made up for it. Really clean rooms and beds, with a big locker right outside my room, and a small one beside my bed that is big enough to fit my backpack. Good location, ~3 minutes walk from bus station. There is also a nice public park/free foot bath available 2 minutes away. ~10 minutes walk to train station to luodong/yilan... Will return. Highly recommended.

Located just beside the bus station which is quite convenient, just a 10-15mins walk to train station. Will definitely recommend to friends and family if they come visit jiaoxi!

A Cozy Hostel Worth Staying”

The place, including the toilet and room, is clean and moderately air-conditioned. The bed is rather big for one person; lighting is perfect for the bed. The pillow and the mattress are perfect in terms of their softness-- neither too soft nor too firm. The locker outside is big enough for a medium backpack. I will choose to stay here again next time I visit JiaoXi.

There is also a nearby hotspring place which is similar to those onsen in Japan! Will definitely recommend to anyone who wants to Budget stay in Jiaoxi.

Wonderful stay, with areas of improvement. ”

The hostel was extremely clean, from the beddings to the toilet. I think instead of renting towel as a one time usage, it’s better if we can rent the towel throughout the stay. Or we can decide if we want to change the towel and rent a new one. Another area of improvement is to maybe try to find ways to allow females to use the female toilet on the 2nd flr to bathe, as although we may be staying in a mixed dorm with friends, I may not be very comfortable to bathe in a place where men can still come in. Price wise, I think it will be value for money on normal days, but definitely not during the Holiday season as prices were hiked by a double.

Great hostel (like a hotel!) near the Jiaoxi train station”

This is really a great place to stay. The staff is friendly, patient and helpful. They have washing machines and dryers, the showers are clean and water pressure is good, shampoo and body gel smell great. Even in an 8-person room you are comfortable, with two places to lock up valuables, a curtain to close off your bed space and even a sliding door to close off your section of the room (we were two, so we felt almost like we had our own room). Breakfast is nothing special, but definitely good for the price (toast, cereal, coffee, fruits). Highly recommended!

Nice hotel, but damp”

The pictures represent the hotel and it is clean. But, I suspect there may be issues with mildew that's not really visible since I had trouble breathing at night. Might just be me though. Otherwise, the place is quite good with its own natural hotspring (the water does wonders for your skin) and friendly staff. I really liked the body wash/shampoo/conditioner that they use.

Everything was great except the fact that because it is a family-friendly hostel - it can get very loud and noisy with kids. Staff won't really do anything about it, while kids are literally running around and screaming. It's the parents' responsibility of course but that was the only complaint.

Good stay for two nights. It's about a 20 - 30 min walk to some of the main attractions/sites. I personally found the public transport to be very expensive so you'll want to walk. Nice room, comfy bed, great friendly staff. Showers are okay. You don't get a towel, so if you can bring your own or you'll have to pay €2.20 to hire.
