        Good location and good hotel breakfast”

        Good location

        Lienfook Hostelry is very well located in the heart of Hualien City. The initial travel from the Hualien train station to the hostel take quite a while, 20 mins. After that, you will be able to roam around the city centre on foot with no further reliance on taxis anymore. The hotel breakfast are of a very high standard served by a breakfast restaurant about 5 minutes walk away from the hotel. Free wifi is also available within the room as well.

        The Lienfook Hostelry is a great choice for those who plan to look for budget hostel. Although it is just a hostelry but the service they provided is more than 3 star hotel. The room size is quite small but it is enough for 2 people to stay. They provide great service and the staff are very friendly. They got provide a computer in lobby area for you to do surfing. It located nearby shopping area within walking distance 10-15min.

        The staff and proprietor are super friendly at the Lienfook. We received good recommendation on what to do and see about Taroko Gorge and the city of Hualien. It is a very pleasant hotel, and very conveniently located. We were easily within 10mins from the main shopping and dining area of Hualien. I will happily stay again at this hotel.

        Just right for what we needed”

        Breakfast included, very central

        hotel staff was minimal but very accommodating. we arrived by 8 am, way in advance of check-in time, and they still were able to get us a room by 10 am. it's a convenient location - and even our cab driver knew where it was - that's in the heart of hualien. other reviewers think the room is small, but i think it's a great bargain. it's not too crammed (and i've stayed in some pretty small spaces) and still has room for a dresser, desk, and tv. have to walk maybe a couple hundred feet to get breakfast, but not a big deal. you're probably in hualien to sightsee, so your lazy butt should be able to walk a little bit.

        Nice clean hotel with helpful and friendly staff”

        Clean room, great service

        I spent two nights here on a family trip to Hualien, and was very happy with the experience. The room was on the small size, but typical for Taiwanese hotels in that regard, and was overall comfortable. The staff had mixed English levels, but they were all friendly and communicated as best as possible. The Lienfook is a little far to walk to from the station, but not impossible, though I would recommend a taxi. There are many small shops and informal restaurants in the area. If I were to say anything negative, it is that there was only one switch for all the lights, so it's best if everyone is on the same schedule. Overall, though, it was very pleasant, and we even got to rent a bike for free for a few hours.

        Breakfast delivered to your room, great rooms, helpful staff

        We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights when we first arrived in Hualien on October, 2011. While the staff could not speak much English they were very helpful and friendly. We had a choice of meal for our breakfast, could choose what time to have breakfast and it was delivered to our room each morning. The double room was lovely, vert clean and came with a fridge, couch and little dining table and of course a TV and free Wifi. The ensuite bathroom was lovely with a good shower and rooms were cleaned daily with fresh towels. The hotel is located close to the water and near the night market. The only downside is that it is a bit of a trek to the train station and they do not offer a pick-up service from there. However, you get a real feel for Hualien whilst here and we really enjoyed our stay here.

        we stayed at this hotel for 3 nights when we visited hualien recently. it is at a great location, 5 minutes walk from city center where you can try a variety of delicious local food and do a little bit of shopping. ziqiang nightmarket is about 20 minutes walking. if you do not like walking, taxi is twd100. it is not a full service hotel. they outsource their breakfast to a cafe and give you a voucher everyday, however i liked it because you will have more choices. a self-service laundry store is just 2 minutes walk away. staff are friendly. overall we were very satisfied with our stay.

        we choose this hotel on price and location, so couldn't expect too much as taipei is expensive for asia. room was modest but adequate with tea/coffee making facilities. although only a window in the bathroom and the bed sheets had hairs on them indicating they hadn't been washed. free breakfast. could find only one english language tv station and their internet wi fi didn't work, but not a problem as we got online using another unsecured connection. however, staff were very helpful advising where to visit and ordering taxies. when arriving to this hotel look out of the lienfook hostelry sign along the little side road.

        My friend and I arrived half an hour late at the Taipei Main Station and we were surprised to see the man from Lienfook, with pick up service waiting for us in the cold. Although we were very late, he waited for us with a smile and a very friendly demeanor. The room is smaller than what's shown on the website but it gives a very comfortable, warm and welcoming feeling. Besides that, the room is very clean too. *thumbs up* :) Lienfook even provide free drop off service even at the last minute when we forgot to do the booking earlier. The management were very kind and understanding. :)

        Love this place. It's quite near the centre of Hualien where all the famous pastry shops are. We needed to do our laundry and they offered us their washing machine so that we could cut cost and just use the dryer at the laundry shop down the road. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was ok, the usual spread. Staff were really helpful and even loaned us umbrellas as it started to drizzle as we were going out for dinner.

        There's WIFI provided by the Hostelry, basic amentities are OK despite the exterior. It's afforable.

        My friend selected the Hotel for a one night after our day trip to Taroko National Park earlier that day. It's not exactly the standard hotel that you would expect, as the name should have suggested. The hotel is tucked at one of the small alleys, but there's a big signboard on the main street pointing to its location, so it's considered easy to find. We stayed in their double room, while not impressed, we are not disappointed as well considering the price that we paid. The location is in Hualien shopping district, at least that's what the taxi driver told us. It's not near to either of the 2 night markets in Hualien or the train station, but you can walk around the shopping district and find equally good foods too.

        took us sometime to look for a hotel standard rooms, as we prefer to stay in hotel compare to homestay. So we found lienfook, the rooms are comfortable and cozy. it is also clean. we stayed for 2 nights. no complains thus far. staff are friendly, and complimentary with breakfast. will definitely come back and stay.
