Value for Money
Bro Gui and Ms. Zhong were very attentive to our requests as my group consists of two elderly. Will definitely come back again if we visit Hualien. They helped us to buy train tickets in advance of which I did not manage to buy online. Mother was very happy with Taroko, QingShui cliff, Qixingtan, Rui Sui tours suggested by them and it's reasonably priced for 5 of us. Coffee machines, biscuits, cereal, coffee/tea packets are available in kitchen. Feel so warm like home.

Excellent value-for money near central Hualien
Lovely, clean room, the boss/owner extremely helpful and comfortable bed
We truly enjoyed our stay, found the room and bed very comfortable as well as the host most accommodating. We are glad to recommend this as a great value-for-money option in a fairly central and convenient location in lovely Hualien!

Caring and kind boss and staff.
Staff went all the way to help us source out money exchange places. We are grateful for their dedication and kindness. Staff are friendly and environment is very homely.
Great sight seeing day tours with reasonable prices. People there are friendly.

Awesome stay with friendly host!
Super clean, spacious rooms, and helpful host!
Couldn't have asked for a better stay. Simon and the other host are very friendly and helpful. Simon gave us really good directions and maps on places to go explore in the area. He was particularly helpful in explaining how to get to Taroko National Park and ZhuiLu trail. To be honest we had never heard of either until arriving! Turned out to be a great hike and it's all thanks to Simon! The location is a little far from the night market and shopping but its walkable, maybe 15 min walk? As for the room it was very spacious and clean. The bathroom was nice and just everything was great! My only complaint is that there were mosquitos every night,somehow they would always find a way in. But they were easy to get rid of since all the walls in the room are white and they try hiding in dark places. Anyways, awesome stay and definitely recommend! Simon is a great host, definitely recommend!

Bel posto per visitare Hualien
prezzo, posizione centrale, molto tranquillo
Io, mia moglie e mia figlia siamo stati una settimana all'Encounter e' ci siamo trovati benissimo. La stanza era molto bella, con 3 letti e bagno, ben rinfrescata (fa molto caldo a Hualien) e pulitissima. L'ostello e' vicino ad una via centrale ma appena rientrata in una vietta, quindi molto tranquilla, soprattutto di notte. Si puo' visitare il centro della citta' a piedi da li' e il padrone e' super-organizzato: ci ha dato informazioni e depliant di un sacco di posti. Ci ha persino trovato una parco acquatico in un paese vicino, perche' nostra figlia ne aveva parlato. Nell'ostello c'e' una cucina e un tavolo grande in sala per fare colazione (se si vuole) e abbiamo potuto lavare i nostri vestiti gratis, con la loro macchina. In tutte le stanze c'e' wifi. Noi ci siamo trovati benissimo.

整潔乾淨 寬敞舒適 民宿主人十分友善
十分整潔乾淨。房間很大,樓底高,房間寬敞舒適。配套設備很好,如: 可享用星巴克咖啡、具洗衣、掠衣設備、wifi上網穩定。
丈夫在旅程中病了,退房後,民宿主人還主動幫忙訂火車票,讓我們可以提早到台北休息,讓我們體驗到台灣濃厚的人情味,真是十分感激!民宿位置離主要的購物地點稍遠,建議使用電動自行車進出。
