The staff was helpful. The hostel has a warm and urban atmosphere. It is located just in front of the train station and taxis for going to the night market are not expensive from the hostel. The room and bathroom were clean and modern.

Few minutes walk away from Hualien Railway Station. Clean and cozy dorm, didn't use the locker, as the bed was spacious enough for me to sleep, and have my backpack on it. Staff are helpful and nice, always willing to provide great assistance.
