I love this hostel a lot, the owners are so friendly and helpful. Location is good, near to train station.

We stayed in Sleeping Boot's lovely 4-bed private dorm for our visit to Hualien. The beddings and pillows were clean, comfortable and made for a good night's rest. There were electric outlets conveniently sited beside each bed, along with a bedside lamp. The ensuite bathroom was spacious, with shampoo and soap provided. Bring along your own towel though! Breakfast is... More

Sleeping Boot is a wonderful place to stay if you're looking to hang around Hualien City or venture to Taroko Gorge. The hostel is about a 10-15 minute walk from Hualien train station (花蓮火車站), 15-20 walk to the Hualien Cultural and Creative Industries Park (花蓮文化創意產業園區), and maybe a 30 minute walk to Ziqiang Night Market (自強夜市). It is also right... More

I walked into the hostel with no reservation. Luckily they had available beds! The staff was very friendly. We went out for dinner with the other backpackers! The cleaning lady gave me a contact for a stay in an aboriginal village in Taitung even! Hostel is located in a quiet but safe and convenient street. Love the food stalls around... More

I stayed for two nights at Sleeping Boot, from December 27th to December 29th. It was across the street from a temple, which happened to be holding a costume and dance festival as I arrived. Fong was cordial and very helpful. I hadn’t come up with a specific plan for Hualien, but he had several ready-to-go. I followed his 1-day... More

Only 10 minutes walking distance from the Hualien train station. Friendly and warm welcome from Paul once I arrived, and he carried my luggage all the way to the third floor.

It's my first time to write a comment for a hostel. The reason is the Host Mr. Qifeng is a honest and friendly man! and I like the blanket and bed sheet , I even ask them where to buy that. They do own the hostel for a traveler and take you alike friend. When you step in the house... More

Definitely one of my best stays in my 3.5 weeks trip around Taiwan! Not only the price is decent and cheap, but the quality of the facilities are also fantastic and well maintained. Bathroom and toilets, as well as the common areas are super clean and tidy! Definitely makes you feel at home! The only missing point is that there... More
