Decent Location, Nice Toilets, Big Beds, Value for Money”

I guess my title sums it up. Phoenix Hostel is located within walking distance to Dongdamen Night Market. It is a 30 minute walk from Hualien train station (or about TWD 150 by Taxi, 6 minutes). Food: Breakfast was decent - sausages, ham, cheese slices, bread, garlic bread, salads etc. Drinks - basically a coffee machine. Beds: What I liked about the place was the beds. I can't speak for other hostels in Hualien but the beds in my mixed dorm were super single beds and queen beds - larger than the usual single bed size which was a plus for me. Nice Toilets: There are small individual toilets scattered around the building, and I mainly used the communal toilet on the first floor. That toilet had 6 smaller cubicles. What I liked about the toilets was that they had both toilet bowls and showers combined (and looked nice too!) compared to normal hostels which separate the toilets and the showers. The nearby Koufu Beef Noodle store serves nice beef noodles, if anyone is a fan of them.

Super Friendly”

Phoenix Hostel is near to Dongdamen Night Market. What I really like about this hostel is the staff super friendly. Apart from that this hostel is just in front taxi stand. All the uncles there are helpful. Dont worry they’ll charge you using meter starts from 100TWD. My room is big enough to place my luggage. Shared bathroom. Ohhh. Bathrooms and toilets all have water-hose near by toilet bowl. *thumb-up*. The hostel is perfect. Hoping to be there again one day.

Ideal location to dongdamen market”

The hostel is near dogdamen market about 10mins walk. Took the mixed dorm, there are 4 beds in 1 room. Room is slightly small. Locker is provided under the bed and it is quite spacious, can keep my big backpack. Toilet and shower facilities are together. Basic toiletries (shower gel & shampoo) are provided. There is luggage storage provided. Distance to hualien train station is slightly far. Convenience store is nearby and there is laundromat a few shops beside the hostel

It is a newly renovated hostel with a very cozy and spacious common area/ kitchen. The toilets and bathrooms are clean. Staffs are friendly. It is in the heart of the city near the Dong Da Men night market beside the seafront. 30 mins walk from the Hua Lien train station, bus/ taxi is readily available for hail.

It could be a 5 star, but for now it's just a 3”

The staff is very nice , they let us change our room cause we didn't sleep well in the other. Bathrooms are very clean, men and women are not separate but there's some for women only. The room has 4 beds and it's quite comfortable. The lockers are under the beds and it could be very noisy sometimes, like the horrible sounds from the toilets in front of the room. The common area is nice but not enough clean, in particular the chairs. They provide a huge breakfast with vegetables, eggs, ham and so on. The only problem is the time, just from 7 to 9 am. There's a fridge where you can put your food, a coffee/cappuccino machine, tea and drinkable water for free. Nice stay in Hualien.

Friendly staff. Clean accommodation (rooms, washroom, pantry). In walking distance to the nearby Feng Jia Market with a taxi stand (I believe) right outside the hostel itself. Rooms are very cozy but the blanket covers feel too rough for my liking.

A good place to stay”

It was easy to find the hostel and the staff are good in English as well. The lady was accommodating since she offered us coffee and tea when we arrived. We left our baggage coz the check in time was 3pm and we arrived around 12pm. The place is near Dongdamen Night Market, Beibin park which has a very beautiful beach! It’s close to bike rental shops too! Breakfast and lunch are free but we were not able to take it coz we checked out at 6:30am for our Taroko Gorge tour. They let our other friend stay until 12pm tho the check out time is 11am. The bed was big and lighting is really nice! The AC works well too. The bathroom is very clean. The lounge has a lot of free stuff. They offer tea, coffee, biscuits and little snacks. Good place to stay! 👍👍 Group of 3 travellers from the Philippines 🇵🇭

Awesomeness. ”

The caretaker is very kind to make sure I have a comfortable stay. He noticed that I would probably be the only female in the mixed dorm that I booked and re-arranged/upgrade for me and a couple other solo female travellers to be in the same dorm. Facilities are great especially the bathroom. Better bathroom that my own bathroom backhome. 5 star hotel shower minus bathtub. Good breakfast to start your multiday cycling trip. Lots of cyclers stays here can chat and get tips from them. Laundry is just around the corner. Dongma night Market also round the corner. - big and most well organised in Taiwan. More like funfair.Probably biggest.

Good value for money, but staying in a shared room means that you will have to bring your own toiletries and towels (something that other hostels would have provided). Common area was well kept. Location was good (close to the night market).

If a single room is all you need, this is perfect. Good bed, strong WiFi, clean shared bathroom. Free breakfast. Great value for money. About 3-4 minute walk to Dongdamen Night Market. Too far to walk to train station (over 30 minutes). By taxi, costs NT 135-145.

Room is actually smaller than what we see on website. And it was still very humid even we turned on the A/C to dehumidify. Was not as clean as we thought would be. Curtains were dirty and walls were thin. However, if you’re looking for cheap place to stay and done mine what’s mention above, this is a great choice.

Valueable stay in stylish rooms”

This place overcame our expectations for the amount we payed. Located right next to the big night market and close to the ocean (quite a bit from the train station though). Breakfast was nice with a lot of vegetables and fruit! The staff also helped us with booking a bus tour up to Taroko National Park which was a lot cheaper than any other tours we found.
