Friendly host, beautiful house”
Friendly host, clean room and house, peaceful area
The host is very courteous. The room has an en-suite and a balcony. There's even a 2 seater sofa at the end of my double bed. We also make use of the washing machine. You can use the kitchen (but not the stove) to warm up your food. The hosts doesn't speak English (maybe retired couple). When we arrived, there was a young lady who greeted us along with the host, the young lady (the host's daughter) speaks some English. The host was very helpful to my partner (speaks Mandarin), gave us directions, and helped us with places to visit, eat etc... As we were riding a rental motorbike, I am unable to comment on distance to nearest train station or bus stop.

need to exit from back entrance of train station”
Big,clean,friendly host
free washing machine provided, the only problem is quite far away from train station, need to exit from back entrance, and most of the cabs and buses are located at front entrance of train station. Need to spend $6/ppl to passby the train station, from back door to front door. The other stuff, overall is excellent. I would rate overall as excellent! Will stay again~

Beautiful room, gracious hosts...”
Staff, room quality, location
We stayed two nights at the lovely Violin in the Grass (also known as “Curious”) Guest House in Hualien City, Taiwan. I can’t say enough about the kindness of the family running this business. Despite speaking very little English, they went above and beyond to help us have an enjoyable stay in their city. The family consists of a recently retired professional couple and their lovely 23 year old daughter, “Coco” who of the three speaks the most English. I think this is a fairly new business and they host mostly Chinese speaking Asian guests so I got the feeling we were a bit of a novelty! We had some difficulty at check in, only because the signage on the building directing guests to the back entrance was only in Chinese. After a helpful neighbour pointed out the phone number to call to announce our arrival (the family lives off-site), we were directed to the entrance around the back (first gate) and told to press button #2. We were quickly met by Coco and shown to our modern and very clean room with private bathroom and balcony. We were also shown an immaculate kitchen where we could prepare our own continental breakfast (no cooking on the stove allowed) and a washing machine on the balcony where we could wash and hang our laundry. There is also a comfortable lounge and dining area where the Wifi signal is strong. This place is walking distance from the train station and easy to find. The owners have a flair for horticulture so there are some lovely potted plants and cut flower arrangements around. We highly recommend this guest house and the city of Hualien with its bustling night market, marble sidewalks, refurbished warehouse retail space, and access to the gorgeous Taroko National Park.

good location and friendly owner”
convenient, handy location and budget stay
Was staying in the top floor of building only a single bedroom at this floor, which was very quiet and full of privacy. No breakfast is served for room guests. The only disadvantage of this quest house is the wireless internet, the 2nd floor is the only floor with full scale of signal and rest of floors, 3rd and 4th, are low or nil with wireless signal. Bit disappointed with this.
