Excellent Hostel. Staff are great and willing to hang out with you as well as get you acquainted to the area. Make sure to rent a bike and go around the city. Very close to the train station and a short walk from downtown. Rooms are nice with an excellent lounge area. Free tea and coffee! Cozy hostel with a great lounge area.

The staff were very helpful, as they gave valuable tips on how to spend my 3-day stay in Hualien. They also know where to get cheap yet tasty meals around the city center, and even encouraged a lone traveler like me to mingle with the other guests at the hostel. The toilet and shower rooms are very clean, and the lounge area was spacious and lively. Only issue I guess was that there was no ready laundry services in the hostel (though there's one cheap shop nearby). I will surely stay here again.

I had a pleasant stay in Sleeping Boot. Staff were super helpful and the trip in Hualien was made easy with directions given by Paul. Thanks Paul. The room was small but there were everything in it. Convenient as it was a few streets away from the train station and food shops were everywhere. U wont grow hungry in Hualien.

Fong is amazing! He was so helpful when I needed to rent a scooter to travel the south. When I was gone for about 5 days he looked after my luggage and was really helpful when I needed some travel tips. I would definitely stay here again.

A great place to base yourself and explore some beaches and the Taroko Gorge. Fong, Paul, and the other staff (sorry, I can' t remember his name - the one who went biking with us to the beach!) were all amazing and friendly, offering tips to make the most of my time in Hualien. They create a great atmosphere in the hostel and it's obvious that they care about their guests! Thanks again guys!

If you're going to Hualien, this is the place to stay! Rather small-scale hostel, but that means you get a lot more personal attention! Would certainly recommend

Very helpful and friendly staffs. You don't have to worry that you will be bore or get lost in Hualien co's they are always there to share what is nice and where to go. To me, the staffs are the spirit of this hostel. I love the cleanliness and decoration of this hostel too.

Conveniently located close to the railway station and an enjoyable walk from the centre of town. The hostel is very clean, perhaps a bit too clean. My dorm had an attached bathroom and was good value for money. Fong and Paul are polite and helpful. Fong particularly struck me as a well-travelled and intelligent person. He helped me plan my two days in Hualien and his suggestions were absolutely spot on (which trails to take in Taroko, hotsprings to visit). I certainly recommend the place.
