The rooms here are pretty big compared to other budget hotels around Taiwan. Good TV with a comfortable bed, ample space for suitcases, and a mini fridge. Strong AC keeps the room as cold as you want. The bathroom is very big (albeit in need of updating) and has everything you need. Toiletries included. They even have a reliable wifi connection. There is a free breakfast each morning that is just a nice perk to have if you decide to stay here for other reasons, but I didn't think it was anything special or worth selecting this place over another. The location is close enough to walk to a main street with restaurants/convenience stores and if you're up for a long walk you can make it to the beach, which also has a night market nearby. However, if you are traveling by train, the walk is pretty long to get to/from the station. Also, there was a pretty significant (5.9) earthquake during one of the mornings there and the staff had absolutely no reaction or guidance for the hotel guests. As we hurried to go outside, they just watched with a confused look from behind their desk.
All-in-all, this is a great place that would have a full 5/5 rating if not for the lackluster breakfast, the outdated bathroom, the distance from the public transportation and the staff's failure to handle an earthquake situation properly. Definitely worth the money. If I'm ever back in Hualien, this would certainly be a place I'd stay again.
