    Great hostel! Good quality tea + coffee provided, common space is nice atmosphere to do admin tasks/meet people, everywhere is really clean and the hosts are always ready to help & super friendly. Very close to Hualien station, making it a great choice to visit Taroko and other places around Hualien :)

    One of the nicest hostels I've stayed in in Asia, super cute design and nice touches that give it a homey vibe, perfect for Hualien. Good location about halfway between the train station and centre of town, female only dorm was very spacious with floor length windows and access to a little balcony, bathrooms clean and organised, common area downstairs a nice area with separate kitchen and free tea and coffee. The owner is also very kind and helpful. Highly recommend this little gem.

    A really lovely little place. You feel so welcomed upon arrival. I had a group of 8 people and everything couldn't have been smoother. We were only there for one night but it was very cozy both in the common area and our room. I have to thank the front desk again for running out and finding a wine-opener for me at the drop of a hat - that was so kind! We also got a map and a good explanation of the area. Definitely recommend renting bikes and exploring this beautiful city.

    I really liked this hostel. They gave great recommendations about the local area. The sheets were so soft!!! I want to buy the sheets they use for my own bed.

    My recent trip to Hualien, not my first, had been fantastic! Although I could only visit Taroko National Park only on one day due to the typhoon, this lack of physical inactivity was made up by the warm, boisterous and fun atmosphere at Sleeping Bot. Paul running the outfit with his assistant Madeline had been wonderful and successful in creating a homely environment for guests at Sleeping Bot. Memories of this great stay include the meals, chats & Les Miserables we watched! I'll be back!

    I had a pleasant stay and always took his time to help me and give recommendations. The only downside is that is wasn’t many solo travelers that you could connect with. But this wasn’t the host fault since his already did what he could. This apply for the rest of the country since is hasn’t reach that kind of level of backpacking feel to it. In general is a great place to recharge and reflect on yourself.

    Paul is super nice and really helped me out. The location is also pretty great (10-15 min walk from the station). You can walk almost any where (downtown/beach) from the hostel.

    Overall, not a bad hostel. It's clean, cheap and the staff are nice. Like many Taiwanese hostels, the vibe is lacking a little, so you need to do put in a little effort yourself. My suggestion would be to use the small common area downstairs to try and spark conversations with other travellers.
