We stayed for 2 nights. The host is really friendly which guided us the hualien details like Taroko and the city ect. You can get all the information from the Host. The place is really quite and just 20 minutes away from the train station. It's not a place easy to found though one the main way. Just remember there's... More

Visited feb '12. My stay here was really really short cause I wanted to squeeze Taroko in my limited time. Its a 5-10min walk from the train station. I had a little trouble finding the place cause I didn't notice that I passed by it already and it wasn't easy to ask around in English but good thing a group... More

I had some problems to find the location but fortunately the owner saw me and came to rescue me. He was very helpful both personal and via e-mail and make my stay at Hualien very convenient.

Not so easy to find the front door when first came, but the inner space was a nice surprise!! This hostel was just fun & refreshing. Best of all was the owners - they couldn't be more friendly, helpful, energetic, and cheerful!! Useful brunches could be found easily on the shelves. Not so many rooms, which was somehow good, cos...

The first thing to mention is that the owner was very helpful even with going out of his way to take me to the station, ensure my luggage was dealt with correctly as well as previously identifying good spots to eat, laundry, best trails and other transport arrangements. There are lots of tourist brochures and maps available at the hostel... More

This hostel is in a great location; only a 10 minute walk from the train station. It is exceptionally clean and I loved the tiled shower room, with plenty of hot water. Fixtures and furniture are very modern. Storage lockers with keys make for good security when you are out. The manager is very friendly and will give you a... More

We stayed at Sleeping Boot for 2 nights in Hualien, and the experience has been very pleasant. Our stay starts when our host Paul sits us down, and introduces to us all the essential sights and directions within the small sleepy town. Then, he goes on further to introduce us to the rest of the guests staying with us later... More

The common room was a great idea for backpackers to interact and make friends! The rooms are cleaned on a daily basis and provides a really comfortable environment to sleep in. The owner Qi Feng is really friendly, approachable and helpful. He taught me how fun Hualien could be and even planned my days so that I could make full... More

Stayed at Sleeping Boot for 3 nights and made many friends because the way the common area is designed makes it easy to meet people. Qi Feng is extremely warm, friendly, helpful and extremely thoughtful. I can't think of a better place to stay.
