    Beyond expectations”

    Location is very strategic and convenient because it’s very near Hualien station. Wherever u wanna go in Hualien, it has the best location to go from because most public buses and trains are all accessible here at Hualien station. It’s a green building hostel and easily spotted across from the station. There’s a cafe at the entrance of the building, or other alternatives like 7-11 is just a stone throw away. Beside the building is Hualien’s very famous Mochi Store which tasted superbly good. Hostel service was really beyond expected. Months before check-in date I was already contacted by their staff members via WhatsApp regarding on our itinerary and booking assistance whichever that we required. Or even just a simple enquiry that u may have about Hualien, they would be glad to answer or assist with. We managed to reserve 2 outdoor activities that we wanna participate in Hualien through their assistance in the bookings and the best part is we could make payment on our check-in date itself, without going through complicated bank transfers or emailing of personal documents. Through WoW Hostel helps to save up all the hassle and complicated procedures. Hygiene for the hostel is really, really clean. I have never seen such a clean hostel and their hygiene really impressed me. Facilities of the hostel is very pleasant and cosy. Very old school/retro vibe environment and simple toast and coffee provided for Breakfast every morning. Beds are quite comfy and sufficient space provided for luggages, adequate privacy and space if you’re staying in dormitory style rooms. Language communication maybe a bit difficult if you can’t communicate in Chinese, but some of the staff there knows little English so they will try their best to help u. Overall it’s super value for money, I will always come back here if I ever get the chance to travel around Hualien the next time.

    Very close Hualine Station. Friendly staff”

    I book for 6pax (3 double beds). Take only 5 mins to get there from hualien station. It's a big room with convenience stairs. Rest room located in the room. There are another two toilets and restrooms on 4th and 5th floors. Highly recommended for those who are looking for a hostel with competitive price and close station.

    SUPERB!!! ”

    The moment I booked the accommodation on website, I received a confirmationWhatsapp text & also provided some Hualien attractions I could visit. On arrival (2 March 2019) , I went to L2 to check in, I was greeted by warm welcome by the staff at reception counter. As I arrived around noon, I enquire about half day tour.Howard was very helpful with my last minute request, and managed to arrange for whale/dolphin watching tour. He also provided travel caution such as whether I will be seasick, etc. Howard also provided map of nearby place I could visit, plus bus guide. He is an exemplary staff of hostel. Thank you Howard. I also booked for Taroko Gorge tour the next day. Unfortunately I left my water bottle in the bus. Bmo helped to contact the driver to bring the water bottle back for me. Thank you Bmo. During breakfast, Kim. She was also very friendly. Without me asking, she showed me how to use the stove. I saw her cleaning the kitchen area, and dining tables and also clearing the trash. Very hardworking lady. Thank you Kim. I also met Ranaw, who lent me her hair clip to fix my shorts strap. Also chat with her a short while before I depart. She is also a super nice lady. Thank you Ranaw. As I only stayed for 2 nights, I may not have then opportunity to meet all the staff in your hostel. It is such a good place to be in , I’m sure all the staff are happy working there, and I can see that they treat the hostel like their home. Will choose to stay here if I come to Hualien again.

    Very nicely located posh hostel with very friendly staff”

    It is conveniently located in front of the train station and most of the transportation options are easily accessible. They have weird policies with cancellation and refunds but I guess it was our fault that we bought the tickets right away only to realize we wouldn't be able to use them. They said the tickets can be sold and is valid for a year but they won't sell it on our behalf. Aside from that, it is a place that I would recommend and will stay again.

    Location so good”

    The wow hostel is located just outside the Hualien train station. You will be able to see from gantry. The staff there are very friendly and ready to offer help. I think they offer travel planning services or some sort of guidance at lvl 1. They are helpful and show me bus schedule to take to the locations I want to cover. The hostel provide bicycle rental service (I heard that bicycle is a common mode of transport). Common area is well designed and clean.

    location is just in front of Hualien train station, good facilities, 24hr reception. The only thing that I want to complaint is that the air-cond system is centralized, so I can't adjust the temperature, and it was so damn cold inside the dorm, I had to wear long john & my jacket to sleep, lol.

    Awesome place to stay in Hualien”

    Location was awesome, it's very near to the train station, within 3 mins walk. The place is clean and nice. I stayed in a 4-person female room. The only issue is the noise cause the walls are really thin. Breakfast is the same every morning but you can make your own breakfast too. Town area is a 10mins walk away, there's watsons, MacDonald, Mos Burger etc. Night market is a bus ride away, and the bus stop is also very near to the hostel. If you're not sure how to go back to the hostel by taking bus, just take a taxi. There's tons of taxis outside the night market. Taxi fare is abt NTD100-150. Hostel have a tour desk and i booked all my tours with them. Very efficient and helpful staff. They answer to all enquiries, so just ask away! Overall, a good place to stay in. Will definitely stay here again if i go back to Hualien.
