Best hostel ever!”

Grateful to have stayed in this hostel in the heart of Hualien. It’s the perfect place - around 5mins walk to the station, good food nearby (we loved the Turkey rice!), awesome common area where we love to just chill & play some music, the extraordinary staff and owners who are super helpful and the well-thought-out room (comfortable, great bathroom, stylish). Overall it felt like you were staying in a HOTEL yet the staff are super nice and friendly! I would love to stay here again in a heartbeat. Wish to have stayed longer!!! Good times! Thank you, best hostel, best hosts ever!
