            Friendly staff, can see some thoughtful touch in the room. Near night market. Love the breakfast. Preferred the room to be a little brighter in lighting for children to watch TV at night. Struggled a little to find power plugs around room. The rest was good.

            Dear Emily, We are glad you like our service. Thanks for your kindness. For the moody reason, we have the light less bright but we will take your suggestion into huge consideration and make effort to improve it. For example, we can change the light to adjustable bulb to let guests can choose the bright degree they need. Sincerely yours, Yang.

            Ideal location, fantastic view and awesome breakfast”

            Ocean lover homestay is the ideal homestay for a holiday in Hualien. The location is very close , within 5 minutes’ walking distance to Zhongshan Road which houses the popular dongdamen market and many popular recommended eateries . Dongdamen market itself is more spacious and modern compared to other night markets in Taiwan. We were upgraded to a top floor quadruple room with the privilege of having easy and almost private access to the upper deck with full ocean view. Room was big with attached bathroom and very comfortable with 2 queen beds. To top it off , we were served with one of the best breakfast prepared with fresh ingredients and so much heart . An ideal convenient location , fantastic view and awesome breakfast , what else could we ask for ? We would without a doubt highly recommend this place for couples and family with older children, as the stairs may be a factor to consider for the elderly . I must add too that the manager and owner was most friendly and helpful and recommended us the must-eats in Hualien town as well as taking the initiative to help us settle our transportation back to Taipei . Thank you Ocean Lover homestay for a most memorable and sweet experience in Hualien .

            My 3-nights stay is wonderful. It is right next to the sea. I sit by the balcony and rooftop at night to enjoy to breeze. Different type of breakfast is freshly made everyday. surrounding is quiet but walking distance to a night market and the main streets. Staff there are really friendly and helpful, they helped me to book tours and cars right away. They can lend bicycles to you too. I would love to be back there again. Their English is not too fluent though.

            This is my second time staying here. The first time we had a doubleroom overlooking the ocean. This time we used a 3-bedroom so no such luxury. Location was great, especially that the new night market has opened just 5 min walk away. The breakfast portion seem to have gotten a bit smaller, though still more than enough for an average stomach like myself.

            We loved the warmth of the staff. It made the stay so much cosier than being in a hotel. The artwork and furnishing here made it feel like we walked into a dreamland. The only drawback was a soaked floormat in the toilet when we checked in. That aside, the warmth of the people here and the cosiness of this hideout made us wish we stayed longer. Thumbs up!

            The stay is considered good. However it's not friendly to huge baggage travelers as there is not lift. Our room is at fourth floor. Another issue was the table fan is filled with thick dust which not really good to those who is allergic. Well, it's fine for us as male travelers. The homestay serve a very good and nutritious home made breakfast. Overall we have an enjoyable stay.

            Old, ordinary and dusty

            Pretty decorations but too much of these dated furnitures seemed very dusty. The room I booked wasn't facing the sea and the location of the hotel was far from the bustling city which requires a long walk. My boyfriend's mother does not cycle so we couldn't cycle either. Don't expect to touch the sea waters. They are all walled but you can cycle along the coast. Great view at the rooftop. Paid SGD143 for the quad room. Not worth it as I stayed the second night at a city centre for SGD189 quad room and it was beautiful, new and nicely located

            The enclosed balcony behind the curtain made for a great work area. Also, the bathroom was nice.

            It was pretty good -- no major complaints. Be prepared though, the breakfast is weird. Think taro root and tuna jaffle with fruit made into a happy face. That or, sweet potato sandwich with peas, lettuce and maybe ham. At least, I think it was ham. They just need to make a menu and let people order what they want rather than assuming everyone who stays there wants something strange. What about some muesli or maybe just eggs and toast. Don't go crazy -- it's just breakfast. :-)
