    Fantastic place to stay in Hualien!”

    We had a lovely stay at the Fun House and in Hualien. The breakfasts are different every day and really tasty. From the food to the rooms there is just a great level of attention to detail throughout. Our hosts were also incredibly helpful and gave us advice about Hualien and our trip through Taiwan in general.

    Good Hostel”

    feels like home and the room was very clean

    Fun house would be the first time for us to actually stayed in a hostel because we usually go for hotel. But when i stumbled upon fun house, i thought why not try it because of the amazing good reviews and the room looked good as well. Our room was located on the 4th floor away from the owner's room on the 2nd floor and also the dining hall. Our room was exactly how it looked like in the picture. Upon arrival, there was nobody to open the door for us. we waited for quite sometime and we kept ringing the bells on and on. We did not have phone data in taiwan to make a phone call and by the door bell there was a phone number for us to contact. which i find it inconvenient. Hotel/hostel/motel/inn/loft are supposedly open during the day unless we were informed that the owner wouldn't be around. we were panicked for a second and suddenly one of the owner opened the door. He looked like he just got up from a nap, we arrived at 3pm. he was asking if we had any plans for that day and i said yes and also for the next day. he recommended places to eat around hualien which was very helpful of him. but he was reluctant for us to go in the room when we arrived and insisted us to go out. he helped us call the taxi and he asked the driver to be there ASAP. we weren't in a rush. we wished to just stay a bit in the room for 15 mins or so. I told him I need to change because i was with my long pants and we wanted to go to the beach. he told me to go to the restroom on 1st floor. He told me the room wasn't ready... and as soon as i said i need to change, he said he will call the cleaner to ask if the room is ready. which we find it very odd! we don't see nobody but only him. after a very brief conversation, he said the room is ready.hmmm... The other 2 owner (the mother and daughter) are very friendly and welcoming. I love their presence! and the breakfast they made. Thank you for the keychain gifts!

    Memorable stay with warm hosts and cosy rooms”

    Yummy healthy breakfast, helpful and warm hosts, sweet and comfortable rooms/interior of the B&B

    Really thankful that we have chosen to stay at Fun House as it has made my visit to Hualien a most memorable experience. Impressed by the warm and friendly family that hosted us, the healthy breakfast they prepared, the soothing music at the dining area had made the stay relaxing and comfortable. The B&B recommended good quality tour guide for our sightseeing, and they also helped us book for some of the visits. The hosts made us feel at home, they never failed to check if we need anything once we were back. The room we stayed has a pretty balcony with mountain view. We look forward to visit Fun House again in our next Hualien trip :)

    Like a HOME !”

    Great staff, nice and homely hotel, healthy breakfast

    I am travelling with my family together with my grandma. Fun House gave me a homely feelings, nice design super nice attentive friendly helpful staff. Fun House was run by a couple and their daughter. They can speak really good English as most of Taiwan people can't. The breakfast that they served was really healthy unlike those heavy oily breakfast. The room was huge and clean. Fun House only consists of 4-5 rooms. We had the family room. The only downside is the room is at 3rd floor and of course it doesnt have a lift and my grandma have to climb up and down. But they did helped us to carry our luggage. Fun House gave me a very homely feelings and very comfortable. I will definitely visit again.

    Relaxing and comfortable Minsu.”

    Host family was friendly, helpful and approachable.

    The Minsu was well-managed,clean and comfortable. David and his family were friendly and helpful. They helped us arrange the inland tour after giving us some useful recommendations. Do visit the magnificent Tarako Gorge if time permits. Visited the night market to try their local foodstuff. Had a memorable trip as both the two recommended private tour guide cum driver were friendly and professional.

    Simple, nice and comfortable”

    Friendly staff, good breakfast and quite surrounding.

    Is a residence area, thus to go need tell the taxi driver the location. Some taxi driver I occur not familarise with the area. If got problem call the hotel they can do booking for you. Nice vegetarian breakfast the hotel provided. Better to ask from the hotel taxi service to go around. They will charger lower rates. Basically hualian are by taxi. Go to hualian train ticket (NT $200) and nearest night market (NT$100). My room is Mini provence. Highest floor at 4th floor. No lift but the hotel offer to carry for my big luggage. Got a small balcony can have mountain view. Quiet surrounding and safe. Away from city and nice hualian. The hotel give you a entrance key and room key so is like going your own house type.

Breakfast prepared by the owner were delicious & AWESOME!!There's only 4 rooms available. so no issues of overcrowding. We booked 2 rooms (1 for family of 3 & the other for my brother & his wife). Will definitely recommend to all my friends. I will definitely stay there again if I'm going to Hualien again.

    Really Homely BnB”

    Peaceful, Clean and Wholesome

    It is one of the best BnB I have stayed at. From the cleanliness, to the friendliness of the host family. We were treated and we felt like family having meals together in the kitchen. Host David, Sheryl and daughter Anna were very hospitable and tried to be helpful in providing information we might need for our stay in Hualien. Would not hesitate to recommend this BnB to anyone who needs a real retreat. Their breakfast comprise of pumpkin spread, freshly sqeeuzed orange juice and fruits. The house is a 4 storey house, so if you cannot climb steps, best to avoid.

    Awesome”

    owners, rooms, food

    Best experience of our trip, only regret was that our stay was too short and we didn't have time to really enjoy our rooms. Loved the decoration of each room. Rooms were big and very comfy. The 4-bedder had a cosy nook for chilling, with awesome views of the mountains. Owners were very friendly, recommended heaps of eating places and helped to arrange a driver when our plans fell through. They were also happy to accomodate our early breakfast hours. Breakfast was delicious and a definite highlight. Menu changed everyday but we enjoyed everything. Do note all dishes are vegetarian, but just let them know if there are any particular vegetables you don't ear. Only downside was location, Hualien has no public transport and the location is slightly away from the main stretch, so walking or cabbing is required.

    David was really hospitable and helpful. Breakfast was fresh and nicely presented. The room was also cosy and intimate.

    Our stay at Fun House was cut short due to the typhoon. But it was one of the most fruitful day of our trip to Taiwan nonetheless as Hualien is really rich in culture and we were introduced to an awesome guide by David, making our visit concise despite the short visit.

Such warm hospitality all the time. Very helpful in giving suggestions where to go and what to do. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. They love decorating and are always changing the colour and theme of each room. Wifi-enabled. I looked forward to the interesting vegan variety at breakfast even though I'm not vegetarian.

    1. Warm and welcome hosts 2.located in a quiet area with well decorated rooms. 3. a yummy hotpot restaurant nearby.

    Located near the Tzu Chi University in Hualien, Fun house is a very comfortable private residence/B&B not far from major attractions. The host is so nice that makes you feel right at home and are full of suggestions as to things you might want to do/know while in Hualien. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fun House and would recommend it to anyone looking for a pleasant, comfortable place to stay in Hualien. And don't forget to try the hotpot restaurant nearby.

    Friendliness of the hosts, neighborhood feeling, comfort of the room

    David and Sherry and their daughter, Anne, were the most wonderful hosts; meeting them was a highlight of our stay at Fun House. They took a personal interest in us and our adventures in Hualien. They serve a beautiful breakfast and did everything possible to make our stay comfortable and happy. We stayed on the top floor, with beautiful views of the mountains and city out of large windows. The Fun House is not in downtown Hualien, which suited us perfectly. We really enjoyed spending time in a quiet non-tourist residential neighborhood, and enjoyed the 2km walk to and from town. The street food and restaurants in this neighborhood were fabulous! One morning our hosts took us to the local organic vegetarian restaurant for breakfast and then brought us to the Hualien organic Farmer's Market. I highly recommend the FUN HOUSE and the wonderful host family.

    Pleasant, Clean and Comfortable”

    Very pleasant and hospitable hosts; wholesome breakfast and very clean, simple and well maintained.

    We travelled from Taipei to Hualien by train and took a taxi to Fun House. It was about 10-15 mins (about 7km) from the train station and we learnt that the location is considered an expensive district because it is near university and schools. It is a safe area and the gates are locked by 11pm, some may feel it was a restriction but these were like the 'house rules'. Well, it is a home stay isn't it? But David and his family were extremely hospitable, ensuring we start the day with a hearty breakfast. Wish they provided bicycles for rent, though.

    Warm and welcoming - a great stay!”

    Breakfast provided was fantastic, our hosts were great people whom we felt genuinely welcomed us into their homes. Rooms are clean and comfortable - we feel well rested!

    We stayed at Fun House for 2 nights after staying at another accommodation the night before. We found Fun House to be very welcoming, calming and friendly place to stay. The warmth of our hosts permeated our hearts during our stay! We were warmly welcomed when we arrived (though too early for check in) with home slippers laid out for us. The female boss made us a good pot of tea and provided biscuits to go along while asking what we wanted to do for the day. When told we wanted to explore the city centre she took out a map and recommended places to eat and shop. Great recommendations there! On the 2nd day, my parents who were travelling with us were fed a delicious spread of healthy organic food. Truly nourishing for our bellies! My mum and myself tried the spa at Fun House. The techniques and quality of the essential oils were great. Both of us felt well rested and relaxed after the spa. Strongly recommended!
