  • Description


    I love Taiwan, where I born and grown; after years working in China, I made up my mind to return and find a style to enjoy my life in mother land, as well as to reunify with my family in Taipei.

    I paid a trip to explore Taiwan again after I back from Shanghai in June 2013, an idea pops to my mind as soon as I realize there's so limited resources in Hualian for international backpackers, merely the town sites next to the best national park
    of Taiwan, Taroko National Park.

    From travaler's experience, I've been looking for a plain, clean, easy to fit in, a place to have a good rest of my body and recreative to my mind.

    I'm on right track toward this goal and you're most welcome to join us and share and enjoy same idea of my Hostel.
