Located at 206 Jian Guo Road, Formosa Backpackers Hostel offers a great and affordable place to stay while exploring Hualien county! The hostel owners are friendly and very helpful. They also speak English. Dorm rooms as well as private rooms (limited) are available. Rates run from $15 to $40 U.S. The hostel also offers a bar, a library, and a variety of maps for personal use. Are you an artsy type? Have fun leaving your mark (or drawing) on the hostel walls in the main gathering area! I once drew an elephant on the wall and from what I've heard, it's still there for all visitors to see. A variety of tasty restaurants and food stands can also be found in close proximity to the hostel.For information, check out http://formosabackpackershostel.webs.com.
