Hi there. Hualien and Taroko are actually quite easy to do on your own. At most hostels they will have city maps and be able to point you in the right direction. To get to Taroko Gorge you need to take the train to Xincheng (新城) station. From there you can take the tour buses. Sometimes they are free...sometimes they are NT$80. You never know. The buses connect you to all the major attractions inside the park. You can also rent scooters in Hualien and do the drive up yourself. I recommend having an international driver's license as well as lots of insurance! Driving in Taiwan is a bit of an extreme sport.

you can take Taiwan Fun tour bus, the bus services one time per hour,
the bus route, from Hualien ---> Sincheng (新城) ---> Toroko,
from Hualien ---> Sincheng (新城) will be takes one hour,
so I suggest that, In case of you comes form Taipei, you take a train to Sincheng (新城) railway station,
then take the tour bus to Toroko, save your time,
