Amigos Hostel is located close to the station. The staff is nice and there is a nice relaxing chair in the lobby. There are no lockers in the room to put your stuff in. The breakfast consists ot of a prepackaged sandwich.

The staff is super friendly and welcoming. Amigos Hostel has a homey atmosphere. It has a great location, near the main street with lots of food options and great shopping. It also is less than 5 minutes walking from the train station. I love Amigos!

This hostel is really close to the railway station and is teamed by the friendliest, most helpful people you're likely to meet in Taiwan (which is saying a lot because Taiwan has quite a lot of those). I was doing a cycling trip and received lots of good tips about travel, how to hire and general encouragement! The living room...

Great people around there, real amigos. Nice hangout place, with superb home roasted coffee! Beds and showers are ok and clean. Staff is helpful and it's great staying there alone since the locals are always around. Felt like home for me, so I would recommend it.

I arrived in Hualien a truly solo traveller: not a single friend to speak of and no certainty as to what to expect from the city. When I left a week later, I left with a new group of friends. The guys at Amigos were not just courteous, not just helpful, not just friendly; they were genuinely excited to have...

My stay at Amigos was fantastic. I was in Hualien to visit Taroko Gorge, as many visitors are, but was having difficulty finding a scooter to rent. They helped me get one, and advised me to get it the night before my excursion so that I could get the benefit of the full 24 hour rental. The rooms were clean...
