"1) Very cheap 2) Walking distance to the inter-state train / bus station which is essential if you'd like to spend most of your time doing outdoor activities. Hualien's attractions are sporadic - so it is a lot more efficient to stay nearby the inter-state station than trying to find a place nearby some of the attractions. Plus, most of the main attractions are outside Hualien and you will need to take the bus to get around. 3) Very clean 4) The staffs were very hospitable, excited and cheerful. I was very impressed with their customer service. I left a metal ear pick in my hotel room after I left which I could not care less, and the staffs called and even sent me an e-mail stating that they were more than happy to post it! A bit extra but hey, for a small hotel in a small town, this hotel has better customer service than some of the 4-5 star hotel I had been to. 5) You can hire bicycles for free! As mentioned earlier, Hualien 's attractions are sporadic - riding a bicycles would make your trip a lot more fun! I personally feel like a stay in Hualien is incomplete without riding a bicycle around the town - plus it is free!"

"I stayed for 2 nights at Herhuan hotel during my visit to Toroko Gorge (not very worth going unless you really appreciate rock formation) and Qixitan beach (one of the most beautiful beach I have been to), before my departure next day to Cingjing farm via Taipei (I came from Taipei anyway and had to go back ;). The room was spacious and had very good facilities. The traditional Taiwanese breakfast of rice and dishes is sumptuous and delicious, a good meal to start the travel of the day. The location of the hotel is very convenient, just next to the railway station; simply walk straight after exiting, turn right after seeing the first seven-eleven shop. And the main bus station to take the city bus and the one day tourist bus to Taroko Gorge and Qixitan is just next to the train station."

"About 5 to 10 minutes walk for Hualien train station. The front desk (Jack, Nick when I checked in and a lady when I checked out) is very friendly. They will try to answer any questions your may have regarding Hualien/Taiwan. Simple clean and comfy room. I like the sitting area where you can chill after a tiring day out. However, please take note the check in time is 3pm. I was there at 2:30pm and there were no person to attend to me. I could not even enter the premise. Perhaps that is something the management can look into. Even we cannot go into the room, at least there is a reception to allow us to leave our luggages etc."

"Nick is a wonderful and thoughtful host. He upgraded me from mixed to female dorm without being request or with any additional charges. Yayers! Upon arriving, Nick will explain all the to-go and to-eat at Hualien with a photocopied hand drawn map. He will be able to assist you with tour bookings & arrangements. :) Place is clean and cozy, equipped pretty much all the basic needs for travellers. Bed and blanket are superbly comfortable too. ;) "

"Walking distance to and from Hualien Station. Just look out for a bright yellow building which is very visible from the station. Staff service is impeccable and exemplary. They would drop whatever they are going just to greet you aloud, like Japanese style. Close to dining options too though bit far to night market. But no fault of theirs. 1st hotel we come across that serves supper and its so sumptious with noodles, porridge etc which can be considered as late dinner. Lots of variety for buffet breakfast too. You will be spoilt for choice. They tried to arrange a Taroka Gorge day trip for us. But travel agency advised not to go there as they are falling rocks and stones. Instead we spend time in Hualien city instead. We book a business double but they upgraded us free to a quad room with 2 queen beds equipped with a bath tub. 2 thumbs up to them. Only issue is sound proofing can be better. You can literally hear conversations when people talk and pass by the corridor outside. "

"A very affordable option for those visiting Taroko Gorge...this is in Hualien, about 25 minutes south of the gorge (very handy if you have your own transport, or hiring a taxi in Hualien will make to easy for them to drop you off here after a day touring the magnificent Gorge). Huge hotel, amazing swimming pools (indoor and outdoor) with an amazing multi-person jet/aqua massage pool. Meals are buffet-style on the main floor, with plenty of vegetarian options and a mixture of traditional Taiwanese and western flavours. Breakfast (included) is a great deal, and will fill you up for the day. Staff spoke good English. Huge room, though the a/c smelled a bit fusty/damp, but after 5 mins you get used to it. Beautiful views of the park, pools and mountains."

"Really great experience in Bayhouse. Everything more than my expectation! Staff there are friendly and willing to help anytime. If you have an opportunity to stay there, must try the foods recommend by them, really nice which won't disappoint you! Room is big and comfortable, books are avalaible in the room just makes me feel like home. Although they said to have no breakfast included in the room price, but coffee, tea are always available in the pantry. Bread, jam and even toaster are available also. I believe it is an ideal breakfast for a relaxed holiday morning! Of cause you can treat it as a supper also! It may be difficult to find the hostel when you first time there, but it is actually very convenient, walkable distance to shopping area and night market, and just 7 or 8 mins walk to Hualien train station. Over all, I like everything there! And really regret to have planned only 2 days there. Will definitely choose this hostel again next time if I plan to go Hualien again!"
