A New Starting Point Near the Train Station for Exploring Hualien

Stepping out of Hualien Train Station with your backpack, abundant sunshine pours on the unfolding map under the azure sky, while a building in bright green catches your eye from across the road. An airplane roars through the sky, lending the exciting rhythm to this trip. The Chinese name of Hualien Wow Youth Hostel – “Huilan Wo,” was taken from the former name of Hualien with “Huilan” describing the scene of Hualien River rushing into the Pacific Ocean and crashing into huge waves. Now, the green building loaded with passion awaits travelers from around the world to meet with Hualien and inspire each other with dazzling sparks.

 

 

Meet the world at Hualien Wow Youth Hostel

Crossing the road from the train station, the neon sign of the hostel shines a light on the converted old hotel building. The corner café and bar displays a decent collection of craft beer, while a few travelers chill out in the summer afternoon. The subway-themed elevator takes you to the lobby on the second floor. The abundant greenery in front of the counter brings a refreshing contrast to the industrial chic space, as the plaque from the former hotel is still hung on the wall behind the counter. Now the novel creativity flourishes with a sense of youthfulness in this vibrant hostel. The spacious common area comes with a well-equipped kitchen, the display shelves loaded with vintage items and souvenirs, along with a variety of board games, offering a cheerful vibe that welcomes travelers to meet and mingle.

 

The hostel also holds kinds of events on various occasions, inviting travelers to stop by and gain an in-depth experience through a tasting event of rare seafood of the east coast or a beach cleanup trip. Travelers can gather to watch a baseball game on TV together, or listen to one of the foreign travelers playing the guitar over some beer, all sorts of fun can be realized here.

 
 

Diverse room types for backpacking

Exploring further, the delightful surprises are waiting for you in the staircases. As the hostel believes that it is the spectacular scenery that draws travelers to Hualien, it invited a local mural master to paint the beauty of Hualien in the stairwell. From the famous Qixingtan Beach and Taroko Gorge to the best-kept-secret spot like Mataian Wetland, the scenic mountains and ocean were recreated in the space. In front of these 3D images, one may appreciate the excitement of rafting and a quiet stroll in the rural village with the one-of-the-kind interactive experience. There is also a giant map of Hualien in the hallway, marked all over with recommended attraction spots and restaurants. At Hualien Wow Youth Hostel, everyone is brought closer while the accommodation experience becomes more interesting as well.

 

The hostel offers a variety of room types, including an entire floor dedicated to female backpacker dorms, along with a number of shared dorms and private en-suite rooms. Each backpacker bed, consisting of pine frames and white bedding, comes with a private curtain, reading light, universal socket, and electronic locker, while an independent bathroom is located at every room, ensuring a comfy and convenient accommodation for backpackers. The industrial chic extends its charm in the double, twin, and quad rooms, relaxing on the leather sofa or lying on the soft bed, you would surely enjoy the laid-back atmosphere here.

 
 

Set off to explore the wonder of Hualien

After a good night’s sleep, wake up the body and soul that long for an adventure and prepare your backpack for the road. Enjoy a simple but tasty breakfast at the lobby on the second floor, fry a sunny egg for yourself, with some fruits providing a good dose of energy. Before leaving, check the small blackboard for the popular tours of recommendation, from watching the sunrise of the Pacific Ocean on a kayak to going hiking along the trails of Taroko Gorge and being wowed by nature’s miraculous work, for you to relish the natural beauty of Hualien between mountains and the ocean.
