Sleeping Boot located between the train station and the downtown, it’s a good location for exploring the Taroko National Park and the Hualien Rift Valley. Both takes about 15 minutes walk either to the train station or the downtown. A few restaurants and cafes near the hostal. The hostal has a home-feeling atmosphere, the owner is very nice and hospitality,... More

The hostel is clean and the staff are friendly. Lots of local knowledge and updated information from the staff. The ground floor is a good gathering place to chat with fellow travellers. The singles and doubles room are best for privacy. Within walking distance from train station

We stayed only 2 nights in Sleeping boots. I like the environment very much, clean and bright, you can find everything u need there. Staff are also very friendly, they gave us very warm greetings and all useful tips! 15mins walk from the train station is okay. Highly recommended to everyone!
