Friendly and clean”
I stayed in a double bed private room. It's clean but there's no curtains on the windows. It's easily waked up by sunshine. Highly suggest wearing earplugs if you prefer a quiet place.

Meh”
no frills backpacker hostel
hostel is located next to a recycling centre. noise control is an issue. the recycling centre is quite noisy at 5am in the morning. hostel offers a decent bar but otherwise, food is diy. hostel condition and room cleanliness is acceptable for a no frills backpackers hostel. don't expect anything extra. hostel is 30 to 40 minutes from downtown hualien but is 10 minutes from the local train station.

Very Nice Owner BUT No Hot Water in Summer? ”
Nice owner who SPEAKS English + good location
First and one possible negative which I might be wrong about: There seemed to be no hot water in the showers as there are no individual hot water heaters (usually flats/guest houses in Asia have them rather than a central water heater) and there seemed to be no central hot water - that would be a problem in winter but maybe they turn the hot water off in summer (for the record, I did NOT ask the owner). Also, I have NOT traveled much outside of Taipei/Kaohsiung - So I don't know what's considered standard for hostels outside these areas. Aside from that issue, I sent the owner a Facebook message noting a later than expected arrival as I could not get an earlier train & she responded immediately that it wasn't a problem as they have a bar (noise was not an issue as my room was directly above it) that's open until midnight. She also speaks very good English (which makes her place a GOOD option verses other places if you don't speak Chinese) and is very helpful if you need any travel advice. Its about a 10-20 minute walk from the back exit of the train station - I actually rolled a suitcase all the way there. There's also a great night market for food about 10-20 minutes further down the road the hostel is on w/ one lady (along the RD & first pathway) having an English menu. The rooms would be cramped if it weren't for the lockers being in the kitchen area downstairs - meaning that's where you would need to leave valuables but theft should not be a problem at a hostel in Taiwan. Also, there is a set amount of water bottles delivered each day for drinking water - the last morning I had to wait for more to arrive as I got up late. One other minor annoyance I should have mentioned to the owner: The hinges on some of the doors (to my room in front) can use some WD-40 as they squeak a bit loudly late at night.

friendly staff. free bicycle rental. location
It takes 15min. from station by foot. And it is located between station and night market. Night market is valuable to visit. though i stayed just one night, i was moved by friendly staff. i want to recommend this hostel. and i want to stay again if i visit hualien

バックパッカー”
フロントスタッフが気さくでいろいろなことを丁寧に教えてくれます。台湾でいくつかのホステルに泊まったことがありますが、比較的いろんな国の人が滞在しているなとかんじました。たくさんの外国人と友達になれます。フロントはバーのような作りでおしゃれで、いるだけで楽しめます。
駅からシティとは反対側に歩いて10分のロケーション。ナイトマーケットも近くのメインロードをゆっくり歩いても30分。駅でバスや電車すべてやの情報が手に入ります。日本語スタッフもいるので、市内観光には絶好のホステルだと思いました。 いろんな国の人が止まる割にはうるさくはなく、夜は静かで、女性も安心して泊まれると思います。
