Best Hostel in Hualien”

Great Customer Service, Room Cleanliness, Excellent Location

The hostel location just less than 5 min walking distance from the train station. I stay there for 4 nights, I was invited to join the Christmas party from the lovely owner. Upon check in, the staff is very helpful and enthusiastic explain to me the place of interest in Hualien, they even help me to arrange for day trip. The room is very clean and equip with private toilet in every dorm room. I definitely will stay in Mini Voyage Hostel again if I visit Hualien in the future.

Great location & friendly staff”

Super easy to find (300m)opposite Hualien train & bus station to Taroko. Visitors centre is also next to station. 6 bedded dorm on 4th floor(no elevator) was bright, airy & very spacious with bathroom attached. Small locker was provided inside dorm. Beds were clean, firm with duvet. Every floor had drinking water machine & common fridge. Only thing was a lack of shelves/table in bathroom /dorm. I enjoyed my stay at Mini Voyage & would return when visiting Hualien again. Thanks Ting for all your kind assistance including carrying my bag upstairs.

Great location ”

The hostel is located diagonally across Hualien Train Stn South exit. There are a great choice of food outlets including Hualien must eat are all within walking distance. The biggest night market is a 30 minutes walk from the premises. It is also ideal for taking Taroko shutter right outside the train stn. My three nights stay at Mini Voyage is a great experience.

I stayed 3 nights at mini voyage and it has been a great stay. It’s very close to the train station and there are several food places and shops close by. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Special thanks to Wu Yi Ting for helping me with the application for the old trail in Taroko and for being my emergency contact. I would definitely come again to mini voyage when in Hualien!

Clean, Quiet, Friendly”

I stayed at the Mini-voyage hostel just for one night as I wanted to be able to go into Taroko Gorge for two days is I so decided. I didn't book my hotel very far in advance (less than a week) so there was a limited selection of cheap places where I could get a private room. I'm past the point of wanting to take a bed in a shared dorm room. I ended up with a two bed room to myself and was extremely comfortable. The mattress was directly on the floor (or on the loft) but it was not too hard. However if you have some mobility difficulty it might be difficult to get up/down, and after a long day of hiking I did sometime feel like I was falling onto the mattress. The duvet was cozy and plenty warm for October. The front desk ladies were extremely friendly and helpful. They made sure I knew where to get the shuttle bus that would take me into the gorge. Provided me with a schedule and told me which stops were currently closed.

We felt at home. Also thanks to the great staff! Sonia, Ryan, Ting and Pinky were always happy to help. Not only they gave us great tips for Hualien but also for our next destination.

Best Stay in Hualian”

Location, Room, Service

We are men couple who stay at 1 night at mini voyage Hotel, the best is location; you can walk from the train station to hotel in 5 minutes, and it was very very easy. We arrive to the hotel around 10:00am, a bit early for check in time but not a problem for us, we rent the motorbike at nearby shop and ride to Toroko National Park. (Don’t miss it. ) The staff are very nice and very helpful, I met Ryan upon check in and recommend me many good tips for Hualian. We come back to check in around 5:00pm. Our room located on 2nd floor, nice room with all bath amenities. Also the bathroom is nice decoration; the room had no window but we are still comfortable. The hotel provide the instead noodle for night time. One thing that I love in the room in the qualities of the bed, the pillow and linen. We have to admit that we sleep until late morning almost misses the train to Taipei. Only 1 disappointment that we stay here only 1 night (It should be more than 1 night). If I have a chance to come back to Hualian again, Mini Voyage Hotel is my answer.

Quaint little hostel”

I enjoyed my stay in Mini Voyage with the cleanliness, safe, convenience (short distance from the train station), and the good price for the room and space that I had. There is a good mix of those who want to share the room (dormitory style) and those who prefer their privacy (own room with attached bath room). Staff was helpful in recommending day trips. Will recommend this hostel to friends who may want to travel to Hualien. Thank you Mini Voyager.

Top notch hostel in Hualien”

The hostel is well designed with modern Japanese style decoration, maintained to the highest hygiene level. The interiors are brand new and very functional. Bedding is super comfy, coupled with excellent aircon, ensure that you will have a good night of sleep. The common room is well organised and functional, spacious too. Tea bags, snacks are provided as well as basic cookeries. Staffs very friendly and helpful. Location is spot on, you can get to train and bus stations within 5 minutes, handy for catching the Taroko bus in early morning. There are also loads of moped and car hiring agents nearby. If I were to complaint one thing, then it is probably the stability of the Wifi, I was trying to make and IP call but experienced frequent drop off and noises. But there's really not many to be complaint about the hostel. All in all, if you come to Hualien, try get a place here.

The hostel is super close to the Train Station. Everything was good: the price is reasonable (considering its convenient location), the receptionist is helpful, the bathroom is not very big but always clean. And one special thing I really like about the hostel is their cheap laundry price: only 20NTD for washing and another 20NTD for drying! If Hualien is in the middle of your trip like mine, you should definitely do the laundry here. The price was doubled in Taipei fyi.

Clean hostel, easy location and Ting is great!”

If you need a hostel but not in the mood for too much socialising w fellow travellers (sometimes you just want some downtime) this is a good option. It is conveniently and easily located in front of Hualien Train Station, so it makes an easy landmark. Toilets are super clean, shampoo and shower gel provided. For female dorm: the curtains cover half of your bed, not fully, and at Level 4 (no lifts, only stairs). For mixed dorm: it is on the 1st floor, have balcony outdoor area to hang your clothes to dry, the curtains cover fully but bed walls are thin. The staff Ting was very easy to approach, helpful, friendly and made you feel at home creating conversations with you when you return from day trips, etc. That made a difference because I extended another night at the hostel instead of changing. There needs to be more tour info (e.g. pamplets/sign-ups at hostel) in English made available at this hostel, because the other hostels nearby have it and made it easy for non-Chinese travelers.

I love this hostel”

This hostel is super near Hualien Train Station and therefore a little bit far from the night market. However, I found it convenient for me because I could walk wherever I want after leaving my backpack at the hostel. The hostel is lovely and so is the staff. I had the receptionist send the postcards for me as well. The dorm room is pretty spacious as well which surprised me at first. There is only two bathrooms and two restrooms (each of the two is for male or female), but it did not affect me much since I often came back late and did not have to wait. We can use the staff’s bathroom as well. Only one think I didn’t like was that it was a little two warm at night, however I was too tired and lazy to go ask or fix it.

Best stay in Taiwan!”

My cousins and I stayed in 5 places in Taiwan (across different cities), and this was our favourite! The room was clean, spacious and was super comfortable. Staffs were super nice too, and it was the only hostel we stayed in where we got a tour. Parker, one of the staffs, helped us get around Hualien and even ordered a taxi for us. One of them even rushed to help us get our luggage (no lifts, btw) down the stairs. Location was strategic too, and nearby there are mochi shops you can frequent for souvenirs. Would 100% return and recommend!!

Very friendly staff, clean facility”

The hostel is very close to the Hualien train station and also the bus station which made getting around very convenient. The staffs were also very friendly and willing to help give recommendations to nearby sights. We booked a double room and they kindly upgraded it to a triple room for us to give us more space, and because they weren't too busy. The rooms are clean. Only downside is they don't have an elevator so if you have too much luggage, you'll need to carry it up the stairs (although the staffs helped us with ours).
