    What else ...

    This is a hostel at Hualien (Taiwan), very close to train station,
    so can very easy to go everywhere you want in Hualien. We got amazing mountain (Taroko Groge) ,
    beautiful pacific ocean around, so if you like nature just come and joying us!

    In the Hualien downtown you can just cycling here, we provide the bike so you can go bike trail along with coast,
    but if you want to go more faraway, like Taroko you can take the bus or try scooter(need license) to get there!

    In the good weather, we will go to river in the mountain to set the fire cook food, swimming, maybe do a little bit river tracing, or go to beach at night set fire, play guitar singing together.
