“Great Experience!”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

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 use of them in Hualien! Thank you Sleeping Boot! I would definitely return there again!

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.

I stayed with some friends in Hualien for 3 nights and we were very happy with this hostel. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Atmosphere of the main living area is nice and encourages chatting with other guests. Only about a 10 min walk from the train station, markets and some good restaurants and bars.

The hostel is really clean, provided with hi-speed wifi connection, and the host is really helpful in suggesting your plan around the city or Taroko Gorge. I went on a 2-hour northbound bike ride along the coastline as suggested by the host. It doesn't provide you any breakfast but you can just go to a bread seller located on the right side of the hostel in morning for a delicious yet cheap breakfast along with hot soy milk.

Room Tip: The dorm room on the 2nd floor provide you with a street view. Should be perfect to dry some wet clo...

Fong, the owner, is one of a kind!!! We were booked at the Sleeping Boot the night that Typhoon Soala hit Hualien. Fong went above and beyond to make sure were taken care of. Such a friendly guy! The facilities are great too...clean and comfortable rooms, hot showers, and a very welcoming, cozy atmosphere. If you're planning a trip to Taroko and need a place to stay in Hualien, Sleeping Boot is the place!!!

Stayed at sleeping boot for 2 nights in may 2012. It's well located; in between the railway station and commercial area of hualien. Just 10-15 minutes walk from either location. Had the single room with a/c and bathroom, it was cozy, comfortable and clean. The host/owner, mr. fong is a very friendly and helpful person. Had a great stay there and i highly recommend it.
