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.
Comfortable and clean hostel ”
Recommend this hostel if you’re are solo traveler even group. Hostel is very clean and with very helpful and friendly staff. 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.
Perfect stay for the budget”
Affordable multiple bed dorm, shared bathroom and toilet, with the price like that you still get breakfast! Staff are very friendly and helpful all the time! 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.
Hostel is very clean and comfortable. Location is good, very close to bus station and train station. Very close to Jiaoxi and Tangwei hot spring too. I really had a pleasant stay here and wish I'll come back again next time.
An impressive hostel ”
I stayed for two nights and was impressed by the cosy rooms and service. They provide a small towel and slippers. Place is within proximity to the bus terminal if you are coming from Taipei. 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.
Good location ”
oppostite jiaoxi hot spring park 5 mins walk to bus station for buses to taipei 10-15mins walk to centre of city Stay in room for 4 lockers are outside the room got safe in the bed board. Got hot spring during evening time
comfortable dorm room and great common area”
Not too far from Jiaoxi train station. The hostel is nice and clean. Very affordable.
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!
LOVED this Hostel!!!”
Such a great hostel!!! I highly recommend. It's very modern and clean, with the friendliest staff! The rooms are nice and quiet with big lockers for your bags! I personally did not use it, but there is a sauna you can pay to use! I can't recommend this place enough.
One of the best hostel I have ever been! ”
Bed is fully covered by wood, it is great for someone who needs privacy and quiet environment for sleeping. The hostel is well equipped at very low price!
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. Besides that everything was great!!
Very modern, Clean and comfortable room in Excellent location. Really Enjoyed the free hot spring pool. Friendly and Helpful staff. Only complain is they Serve instant coffee insted of fresh coffee
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.
Staff was very helpful”
The room is well worth the $$ we pay, they have board games in lobby area and a time that allows female or mixed hot spring in the evening. Best thing about this Hostels however is the friendly staffs. They assisted me in a couple of things, patiently.
Friendly staff, great location, good price, and clean!
Thank you for your review Looking forward to see you here again!
Very convenient location”
Right next to bus station and a short walk to the train station. Great for exploring Jiaoxi.
